There are two types of Scoliosis:
Congenital scoliosis is when you are born with a structural deviation in the spine. Your back will twist either left or right from birth. Moreover, it often only starts to become visible at the ages of 3-5 or sometimes as late as the early teenage years. The cause of congenital scoliosis is unknown.
2. Idiopathic Scoliosis.
Idiopathic scoliosis on the other hand is where you develop a twist in the spine after an injury, or a following a medical condition. It may be corrected with physiotherapy management and other related scoliosis treatments.

Spinal surgery is an invasive and dangerous procedure, and one that should only be undertaken after all other options have been exhausted.
