Types of Scoliosis

Firstly, before you treat your scoliosis, it is important to understand the different types of scoliosis. Adults may develop three types of scoliosis, including degenerative scoliosis, idiopathic scoliosis, and secondary scoliosis.

Degenerative Scoliosis

This is the most common type, where the spine’s curvature worsens over time due to spinal degeneration.

Idiopathic Scoliosis

This affects adults who had scoliosis in childhood, and the curvature increased after reaching maturity.

Secondary Scoliosis

This can develop due to an underlying medical condition or injury to the spine.
