When we talk about scoliosis, we mean a condition that involves an abnormal curvature of the spine. If left untreated, this condition can lead to problems such as chronic back pain and spinal deformities. Spinal defects can significantly interfere with the normal functioning of the human heart and lungs, as they can cause problems with lung expansion and blood flow.
The truth is that scoliosis cannot be cured; although it is treatable. In fact, most of the reported cases of this condition are mild and all of them are treatable. The cause of scoliosis is unknown, so it is called idiopathic. In fact, it is believed that abnormal curvature of the spine begins in childhood, especially during periods of rapid growth, especially during puberty.

Scoliosis is actually more common in girls than boys, although it usually begins in childhood, it can also occur in adulthood. Scoliosis that occurs in adulthood may be due to age-related degeneration of the spine, or it may be because scoliosis was not recognized in childhood.
In some cases, the curvature of the spine in scoliosis may be caused by a birth defect that affects the development of the spine. When scoliosis is caused by a birth defect, it is called congenital scoliosis.
Scoliosis can be detected by X-ray of the spine. The spine is usually straight and symmetrical. However, those with scoliosis may have a spine that looks like the letter S or C.
