Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a lateral (toward the side) curvature in the normally straight vertical line of the spine. Scoliosis is used to describe the abnormal, sideways curvature of the spine. When a person with a normal spine is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be straight, when a person with scoliosis is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be curved. Types of scoliosis are infantile, juvenile, adolescent, congenital and neuromuscular scoliosis. While scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown. Idiopathic scoliosis rarely causes pain, and in most cases the curve is minor enough to be considered an asymmetry and does not require any treatment. However, once scoliosis is detected it should be closely monitored by a medical professional in the event that the curve progresses and needs treatment.
