A herniation, loss of disc height, or slippage of one vertebra over another can reduce the amount of room for nerves and the spinal cord to pass. For some people, there are no symptoms associated with this condition, but others feel pain, numbness, or a tingling sensation in their neck and/or extremities.
Everyone’s spine has natural curves. Patients with scoliosis could have curves that look more like a “C” (one curve) or an “S” (two curves). Depending on the age of the patient, scoliosis can be Pediatric Scoliosis or Adult Scoliosis.
