Neuromuscular Scoliosis is a type of scoliosis that can can affect children and adolescents. According to Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) it is “an irregular spinal curvature caused by disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and muscular system. Nerves and muscles are unable to maintain appropriate balance / alignment of the spine and trunk. Neuromuscular curves are often associated with pelvic obliquity, a condition in which the child’s pelvis is unevenly tilted with one side higher than the other”1. In other words, it is a condition that causes the spine to curve sideways. It is a result of the muscles around the spine being unable to support it. NMS can cause the patient to have trouble sitting, walking, as well as experience pulmonary difficulties.
