Types of Scoliosis

Juvenile Scoliosis

Juvenile idiopathic scoliosis is classically defined as scoliosis that is first diagnosed between the ages of 4 and 10.

This category comprises about 10% to 15% of all idiopathic scoliosis in children.

Adolescent Scoliosis

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis occurs at approximately 14 to 17 years old for women and 18 to 22 years for men. This category represents over 80% of all diagnosed cases of scoliosis in children.

Adult Scoliosis

At LOC, we have treated both adult idiopathic & degenerative scoliosis patients ranging from 30 up to 87.

An adult scoliosis patient may experience idiopathic & degenerative together.
