Living with Scoliosis - From Childhood to Adulthood

The spine is our body’s central support structure, but when you have scoliosis - where the spine curves abnormally - it can affect not only how you look but how you move around as well. With scoliosis often diagnosed in childhood, how will this impact the child’s growth? And what management will be needed into adulthood? We find out from Dato’ Dr K.S. Sivananthan and Dr Lim Sze Wei, consultant orthopaedic surgeons from ALTY Orthopaedic Hospital.
