Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a common spinal condition affecting over 3 million people in the United States per year. In fact, approximately 2% – 3% of Americans aged 16 have it. Defined as a sideways curvature in the normally straight vertical path of the spine, scoliosis oftentimes surfaces during the rapid growth spurt just before puberty. Females tend to have a higher risk of developing this condition than males.
