Scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine, can vary from mild to severe. But even mild cases can worsen over time and cause problems with posture, pain, and breathing. Duke pediatric spine specialists offer the full range of nonsurgical options -- including bracing and specialized physical therapy -- as well as the latest advances in spine surgeries and procedures. We tailor our treatment recommendations to each child's unique anatomy and needs and follow them through adulthood.
