Whether your particular spinal conditional is congenital, idiopathic or neuromuscular related, the Spinal Program at Children's provides comprehensive treatment including evaluation, diagnosis, consultation, and follow-up care.

•   Observation: Keeping watch on curves – Once an abnormal spine curve
    has been detected, it is important to monitor the curve. In many cases, a
    child's spinal condition may only require close monitoring during skeletal
    growth. Your physician will decide on your treatment plan and follow-up
    based upon your X-rays and physical exam.

•   Physical Therapy: With the goal of maximizing physical function, physical therapists work closely with the Spinal
    Program to provide exercise programs and additional physical therapy modalities to address pain and muscular
    imbalance often associated with spinal abnormalities.

•   Bracing: If your curve shows significant worsening or is already greater than 30 degrees, and you are still
    growing, your physician may recommend a bracing program.

•   Surgery is only required in the most severe cases of lordosis.
