The adaptation to the loss of a limb is an extremely difficult process. During this process the pelvis, spine and head on top of the spine must shift and adapt to a new position. Muscles compensate, some muscles atrophy from disuse and some muscles hypertrophy from more use. According to research back and pelvic pain is as common and severe as phantom pain is, in people who have had leg amputations.
More often than not, when I am doing an initial evaluation of a patient for scoliosis, a parent will ask, “Is there something I could have done to prevent this from happening to my child?” The majority of the time the answer to the question is, “No.” That being said, I usually go on to explain the different types of scoliosis, what is happening to their child anatomically, and more importantly the types of orthoses designed to treat their specific type of scoliosis.
