A sideways curvature of the spine.

Treatment can help, but this condition can't be cured

Requires a medical diagnosis

Lab tests or imaging always required

Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong

Scoliosis occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty.

Most cases are mild with few symptoms. Some children develop spine deformities that get more severe as they grow. Severe scoliosis can be painful and disabling.

Often, no treatment is necessary. Sometimes a brace or surgery is required.
