[QUOTE=CityMonk;50936]Clayton, good to have you on the forum.[/Quote]
Thanks CityMonk. It is very nice to be here. Lovely group of people on this forum.
[QUOTE=CityMonk;50936]I’m just wondering if you have seen a scoliosis in athletic people. What are chances for a kid to develop this condition in the future if he always physically active? (assuming that he she doesn’t have any genetic reasons for developing scoliosis)[/QUOTE]
Ahhh…That is actually a relatively complex question. Athletics and physical activity have absolutely nothing to do with adolescent idopathic scoliosis unless the patient has genetic predisposition for the condition.
Essentially, a patient must have a significant genetic predisposition and sufficient environmental risk factors to develop the condition. Any scoliosis treatment that has any hopes of altering the natural course of the condition must focus on the reduction of environmental factors while the curvature is still in it’s earliest stages.
