What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is curvature of the spine that is often accompanied by a structural rotation of the spine. The term scoliosis traditionally refers to a side-to-side or lateral curvature of the spine often characterized as having an 'S' or 'C' shape.
Scoliosis can occur in three different areas of the spine… the upper back, the lower back and where the upper and lower part of the spine join.
The curvature of the spine in scoliosis patients can range from as little as 10 degrees to more than 50 degrees.
