The JLMD Scoliosis & Spinal Deformity Blog

When it comes to the complex topic of spinal deformities, our condition and treatment pages can only begin to scratch the surface. For example… Do you have a rare spinal deformity—like Adult Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome (ATSCS)—that doesn’t receive much press? Or, perhaps your child has idiopathic scoliosis—admittedly, a much more common condition than ATSCS— but you need to ask a less “common” question, like: “Can genetic testing predict how severe my child’s condition will become?”

You can find all of these topics—and much more—in our ever-expanding library of spinal deformity content. Access our blog to discover the latest advancements in minimally invasive spine surgery. Or, learn how non-surgical treatment options, like physical therapy, can enhance the quality of your life. Get to know more about Dr. Lowenstein’s philosophy of patient care. And, receive expert advice directly from an industry-leading specialist in spinal deformity care. But, most importantly of all: Find out how you (or your child) can enjoy an active, healthy life, completely free of pain! Check our blog regularly to discover innovative (and scientific) tips to manage your pain!
