ADULT SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT for
residents of Arlington TX

Adult Scoliosis is a curve of the spine. In most patients, no surgery is needed; however, in patients who have an excessive curve and it compromises breathing or walking, surgery can help correct those complications. Adult Scoliosis can vary from a minor problem, where it just needs to be watched, to chronic pain and a severe deformity.
