Scoliosis is when the spine deviates or curves abnormally from side to side. It most commonly affects adolescents between 10 and 15 years old. Research shows that scoliosis is more common in girls than boys.
Scoliosis can affect a youngster’s posture, produce uneven shoe wear and cause ill-fitting clothing. Often one shoulder can be higher than the other, along with an uneven pelvis.
Neglected, the abnormal sideways curves may cause abnormal function of internal organs and changes in muscle tissue.
