What steps should a parent take if they suspect their child has scoliosis?

The best way to find out if a child has scoliosis is to do a proper structural evaluation with someone who focuses on structural conditions. Unfortunately, many doctors aren’t trained in this, and they wait until a small curve turns into a big curve before they recommend treatment. There are specific indicators that should be checked to determine the amount of deviation from normal. Remember, there is no such thing as being almost pregnant,  and there is no such thing as someone having “a little scoliosis”. You either have it or you don’t.
