Whenever possible, one should incorporate natural methods in the first place when dealing with scoliosis, which includes painless chiropractic management of this condition. Educating the public and medical health practitioners is the key factor in informing patients with this condition that there are painless alternatives to surgical intervention that may be efficacious, and should be tried first!
However, if the 'final' method of scoliosis management has become surgical intervention, there are many surgical techniques which can be used to correct the curves of scoliosis. The main surgical procedure is correction, stabilization, and fusion of the curve. Fusion is the joining of two or more vertebrae.
Surgeons can choose different ways to straighten the spine and also different implants to keep the spine stable after surgery. (Implants are devices that remain in the patient after surgery to keep the spine aligned.)
