Franklin Lakes, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2019 -- Kayal Pain & Spine Center Provides Accurate Diagnoses, Exceptional Care

Scoliosis is a spinal condition that often shows up when children are 10 to 12 years old. It's important for young children to be screened for this condition because early detection means early treatment that can prevent long-term health problems in the future.

Kayal Pain & Spine Center's specialists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of scoliosis and other spinal issues. Its specialists use the most innovative and effective treatments, including interventional pain management in Westwood and beyond.

Each year, about 3 million people are diagnosed with scoliosis, a curvature and rotation of the spine. The most common form is idiopathic scoliosis. In the early stages, scoliosis can be hard to detect because it doesn't cause pain or manifest itself in obvious ways. That's why screenings are so important. Children should be routinely screened by pediatricians, school nurses or other trained health care professionals.

Parents and other caregivers should look out for the following signs:

One shoulder that is higher than the other
A hip that sticks out more than the other
Ribs that are more visible on one side of the body

When a child is diagnosed with scoliosis, the experts at Kayal Pain & Spine Center want parents to remember that there's nothing they could have done. There is no known cause or prevention for scoliosis. It isn't caused by poor posture or carrying heavy backpacks. The Kayal Pain & Spine team will focus on managing the condition while allowing children to enjoy being children. In most cases, children with scoliosis can participate in the same activities as their friends.

Treatments include:

Monitoring with low-dose radiation X-rays
Physical therapy
Posture control
Torso bracing
Surgery (in severe cases)

For parents who suspect their child has scoliosis or for those who want a second opinion, Kayal Pain & Spine Center can provide a quick, accurate consultation. These compassionate doctors will take the time to answer questions and provide exceptional care. They are the interventional pain management doctors in Glen Rock and beyond who can treat all spinal disorders of the neck, upper back and lower back.
