Scoliosis







Scoliosis is a spinal deformity resulting from the abnormal curvature of the spine. Scoliosis is often classified as structural or non-structural. In both types, the spine curves from side-to-side but in structural scoliosis, the vertebrae also rotate thereby twisting the spine. In 80% of patients, the cause of scoliosis is unknown. Poor posture, uneven leg lengths and muscle spasm sometimes cause non-structural scoliosis.
