What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a medical condition characterized by an abnormal curvature of the spine. The curvature can be either in the shape of an "S" or a "C" and can vary in severity.

This curvature can vary in severity and can affect people of all ages, but it's most commonly diagnosed in childhood or adolescence. There are several different types of scoliosis, and some cases may not have a known cause, which can be frustrating and concerning.

If you or someone you know has scoliosis, it's important to speak to a specialist and develop a personalized treatment plan that works for you.
