How to Test Your Child For Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a hereditary, spinal deformity that happens in the curvature of the spine. It is caused by the bending of the vertebrae, deformities of the rib cage, or posture changes. Scoliosis is most likely to appear in girls, and usually during the early teenage years. The scoliosis curve can look different on each person. Scoliosis can take the shape of an “S” on some backs, while looking more like a “C” on others. The difference between the two shapes, “S” and “C”, is whether or not they encompass the whole back, or just the upper or lower back. Serious cases of scoliosis can lead to hunched backs, and/or respiratory problems. However, if scoliosis is detected early, deformity can be prevented. Check the list below to check for early signs of scoliosis.
