Spine and Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an abnormal curving of the spine.

Your spine is your backbone and runs straight down your back. Everyone’s spine naturally curves a bit, but people with scoliosis have a spine that curves too much.

Scoliosis is a lateral (toward the side) curvature in the usually straight vertical line of the spine. When viewed from the side, the spine should show a mild roundness in the upper back and shows a degree of swayback (inward curvature) in the lower back.

Your spine is a column of bones (vertebrae) held together by muscles, tendons, and ligaments and are cushioned by shock-absorbing disks. A problem in any part of your spine can cause back pain.
