Neuromuscular scoliosis is an irregular spinal curvature due to abnormalities of the muscle‐nerve pathways of the body. It is generally most severe in non-ambulatory patients. Curve progression is much more frequent than idiopathic scoliosis, and may continue into adulthood. Bracing does not prevent progression of the spinal curvature. Cantilever correction maneuvers and instrumentation down to the sacrum and ilium are utilized to address pelvic obliquity, which accompanies NM Scoliosis. Compression, distraction and vertebral body derotation can be used to manage the coronal deformity of the spine.
