A 12-year old female child was brought by her parents with complaints of spinal deformity. She was diagnosed to have idiopathic adolescent double major scoliosis, a condition that leads to bending of the spine as seen from the front [figure A]. She underwent a thorough clinical examination along with assessment of x-rays of the spine.
Acute low back pain is a common reason for patient calls or visits to a best spine specialist’s primary care. Despite a large differential diagnosis, the precise etiology is rarely identified, although musculoligamentous processes are usually suspected.
