Scoliosis is defined as a spinal condition where the spine is curved to the side at an angle of ten degrees or more. Scoliosis happens when your spine develops a sideways curve, resulting to a notion of stiffness or pain. Sometimes the curve is temporary which may be caused by muscle spasms, inflammation, or different leg lengths. Scoliosis is more likely to occur in late childhood and in early teens, when children grow fast.
The following signs of scoliosis:
1. One shoulder is higher than the other
2. One side of the rib cage appears higher than the other
3. The waist appears uneven
4. The body tilts to one side
5. One leg may appear shorter than the other
