Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a condition where the spine is curved to the side. These curvatures can have varying degrees of severity and occurrence and can gradually lead to pain, deformities and other complications. Scoliosis usually appears during a period of growth, often in childhood and adolescence.
A diagnosis of scoliosis usually begins with a physical examination which includes a visual inspection of the spine and measurement of the curvature using a special protractor. X-rays are then necessary to confirm the diagnosis and assess the severity of the curvature.

Causes

The exact causes of scoliosis are not fully known, but there are several factors which can contribute to its development:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Uneven growth of muscles around the spine
  • Rapid growth in children
  • Neurological or muscular disease

Symptoms

Symptoms of scoliosis can vary depending on the severity of the curve, but usually include:

  • Visible curvature of the spine
  • Unequal shoulder or hip height
  • Back pain
  • Limited mobility
