Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that often develops during adolescence. It is one of the most common spinal conditions among young people, with roughly 3 million new cases diagnosed each year. This condition can result from nerve or muscle issues, birth defects that alter development, or spine injuries. It also affects the older population at a much higher rate, with as many as seven in 10 people over the age of 60 experiencing symptoms.
While Scoliosis is only life-threatening in rare cases, its symptoms can make everyday life difficult to manage. Common symptoms of this condition include back pain , uneven shoulders or hips, limited range of motion and trouble breathing related to damage to the organs within the chest.
