This book provides comprehensive coverage of current topics in idiopathic scoliosis (IS). A three-dimensional deformity of the spine, the condition is characterized by lateral curvature combined with vertebral rotation. The primary lesion, however, lies in the median sagittal plane, taking the form of a lordosis. Although the clinical manifestations of scoliosis have been well documented, its cause and pathogenesis have not yet been determined. Research into what causes IS has focused on the structural elements of the spine, spinal musculature, collagenous structures, the endocrine system, the central nervous system, and genetics. Results of these studies have brought about a new perception of IS epiphenomena, but the main cause of IS remains unknown. Recently, several investigators have produced new hypotheses regarding the cause of IS using the developing techniques of genetics, biochemistry, and neurology. This book is a review of the various causative factors thus far proposed for IS and an introduction to the directions in which research is heading to determine the primary cause of IS.

This book sheds new light on the complex area of regenerative injections used in sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, pursuing an evidenced-based approach. Largely ignoring orthopedic surgery, which would involve arthroscopic procedures and scaffolding as they are practiced mainly by orthopedic surgeons, the book instead focuses on injection-based treatments that are particularly useful in sports medicine and for musculoskeletal pain conditions. Including evidence from systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and randomized controlled trials, the book provides a comprehensive overview of regenerative injections such as dextrose, platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy, along with their history and scientific basis. It also includes detailed information on the preparation methods, steps of the procedure, and clinical conditions most likely to benefit from it. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable tool for all medical practitioners whose work involves painful musculoskeletal conditions, e.g. sports medicine physicians, orthopedists and interventional physiatrists, as well as general practitioners.
