A small percentage of people are affected by a curvature of the spine, or Scoliosis. Although it may not require treatment, detection of Scoliosis during childhood is important, since it can inhibit normal lung growth. Scoliosis may also limit movement, and can worsen in later life from degenerative diseases such as Kyphosis or Osteoporosis.

Indicators of Scoliosis include uneven shoulders, a protrusion of one or both shoulder blades, an uneven waist or an elevated hip.

An orthopedic brace may prevent further curvature. In some cases, spinal fusion surgery may be needed.
