Scoliosis (Curvature of the Spine)

June 18, 2013

Scoliosis is a back condition that causes the spine to curve to the left or right side. Most cases develop in children between the ages of 9 and 14 during the growth spurt of puberty. Scoliosis is usually mild and needs no treatment. For more severe cases treatments include a back brace and surgery to straighten the spine.
