What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is not a disease – it is a descriptive term. All spines
have curves. Some curvature in the neck, upper trunk and lower trunk is
normal. Humans need these spinal curves to help the upper body maintain
proper balance and alignment over the pelvis. However, when there are
abnormal side-to-side (lateral) curves in the spinal column, we refer
to this as scoliosis.
