Another frequent cause of scoliosis is problems of neuromuscular nature. In this case, neuromuscular scoliosis is when the curvature of the spine is affected directly by disorders of the brain and the spinal cord. The muscular system may also play a role in the development of the spine. In a considerable number of cases, kyphosis may also occur, but this depends on the exact circumstances of spine development. Over time, the muscles tend to become weaker, which may worsen symptoms and accentuate curvature. It's essential to detect the condition as soon as possible to begin treatment.
