Scoliosis refers to a sideways curvature and rotation of the spine. Most commonly it is diagnosed in adolescents. Although the exact cause is not clearly known, it can sometimes be hereditary or may be caused by certain neuromuscular disorders, birth defects, or injuries to the spine. Most cases are mild and only require monitoring for progression of the curvature while others can be severe requiring surgery.
