Scoliosis is defined as a curve of the spine of 10 degrees or greater. Adult scoliosis is separated into two categories:
- Adult Idiopathic Scoliosis patients have had scoliosis since childhood or as a teenager and have grown into adulthood. We do not yet know the cause of idiopathic scoliosis, but there is a lot of genetic work going on in an attempt to answer this question.
- Adult “De Novo” or Degenerative Scoliosis develops in adulthood. Degenerative scoliosis develops as a result of disc degeneration. As the disc degenerates, it loses height. If one side of the disc degenerates more rapidly than the other, the disc begins to tilt. As it tilts, more pressure is placed on one side of your spine and gravity tends to cause the spine to bend and curve. The more discs that degenerate, the more the spine begins to curve.
