Spinal deformities include a wide variety of conditions affecting children and adults.
A healthy spine has three gentle curves that provide balance and flexibility while supporting the body’s weight. The lower spine curves inward, the middle spine curves outward slightly and the neck curves back inward.
Abnormal curves put the spine out of alignment and can be present at birth. Often a mild spinal deformity will have no symptoms. More severe cases, however, can interfere with nerves, producing pain, numbness or weakness that travels down the arms, legs or both.
