What Is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves in a sideways pattern. Oftentimes, such patterns can disrupt the natural alignment of the spine. Typically, scoliosis occurs during the growth spurt that a child experiences just before puberty. As a child continues to grow, the shape and position of the spine changes. This can create a "domino effect" that distorting the ribs, shoulder blades, and even the hips. If not corrected, long-term back pain and respiratory issues can cause negative consequences in adulthood. Particularly damaging, is how these deformities can make the person look. A positive sense of self-esteem is definitely at risk with this long-term condition.
