Scoliosis care offered by Norton Healthcare

Scoliosis care offered by Norton Healthcare

Specialists with Norton Leatherman Spine and Norton Children’s Orthopedics of Louisville can diagnose and treat pediatric patients with mild, moderate or severe scoliosis.

Scoliosis may be a concern if a child’s shoulders are uneven, a curve in the spine is visible or the pelvis appears to be tilted. Depending on the type of scoliosis, it may appear in young children or in adolescents. Although most scoliosis is painless, some children will complain of pain or difficulty with activities. Because scoliosis often is not noticeable in its early stages, pediatricians and family physicians often will screen for scoliosis.

If there is a question, we can help.
