  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    CONCLUSIONS: The natural history of scoliosis, respiratory function and walking ability in UCMD patients were characterised.[] […] the muscles of the arms, and contractures, especially of the Achilles tendon, hip flexor, and fingers.[] When comparing patients with and without scoliosis, the increases in APCF and UPCF were more pronounced in those without scoliosis.[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    This case series highlights important surgical strategies that can be utilized to treat scoliosis in patients with SMA.[] Symmetric weakness and wasting progress from proximal to distal areas and are most evident in the legs, beginning in the quadriceps and hip flexors.[] BACKGROUND: Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a progressive neuromuscular disease commonly including progressive scoliosis resulting in severe deformity and negatively affecting[]

  • Ataxia Telangiectasia

    Early and continued physical therapy has been proven to slow muscle degeneration and minimize contractures and scoliosis (Gatti, R., GeneReviews. 2010;[] She had weakness of hip flexors, positive Babinski's sign bilaterally, and diminished sensation to pinprick, light touch, and vibration distal to the mid-thigh.[] As A-T progresses, there are a number of other conditions that normally accompany it; including diabetes, scoliosis, and kyphosis leading to need for a wheelchair.[]

  • Central Core Disease

    Although scoliosis is a common feature in CCD, the correct diagnosis can be missed in scoliosis patients.[] She had weakness of neck flexion, shoulder adduction (MRC 4/5), and moderate weakness of the hip flexors, extensors, adductors, and abductors (MRC 3–4/5).[] […] had mild-to-moderate scoliosis.[]

  • Straight Back Syndrome
