What is scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a morphological condition characterized by increased three-dimensional asymmetry of the spine, which is curved sideways and is usually S-shaped or C-shaped.

The cause of scoliosis is usually idiopathic, that is, it has no known origin.

Over time, this injury tends to increase, causing functional, psychological and aesthetic problems, as well as generating decompensations at other levels. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential.


Some of the symptoms that a scoliosis can produce are:

  • Pain in any area of the back, being more common in the dorsal and lumbar areas.
  • Weakness or feeling of tiredness in the back.
  • Decreased respiratory capacity.
  • Difference in the height of both shoulders and/or hips.
  • Scapula more prominent in relation to the contralateral one.


How will we treat scoliosis?

In Sohail Clinic we are specialists in certified treatments of Schroth Method with which we achieve an improvement and reduction of the symptoms as well as the problems derived from it.

In a cross-cutting manner, the readaptation team will carry out an intervention through therapeutic exercise

Depending on the degree of injury, and together with the application of technology such as ultrasound-guided percutaneous intratissue electrolysis (EPI), and Echoguided Percutaneous Percutaneous Neuromodulation, Shock waves, Imoove or Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST), we will work with a program of control exercises, global postural reeducation (RPG) and/or strength exercises.
