What is "scoliosis"?

Scoliosis is a condition where the spine curves sideways, forming an "S" or "C" shape. This curve can cause the shoulders, hips, or waist to appear uneven, and it may lead to back pain or stiffness. Scoliosis can develop during childhood or adolescence, often during periods of rapid growth, but it can also occur in adulthood due to factors like aging or injury. Treatment for scoliosis depends on the intensity of the curve and may include observation, physical therapy, bracing, or in severe cases, surgery to correct the spine's positioning. Early detection and appropriate management can help prevent progression and manage symptoms effectively.
