What is scoliosis?

If you child's back does not look straight, maybe it's time to find out is scolious is the cause

Scoliosis is not an entity. Scoliosis is the body’s response to mechanical problems that cause the body to twist and tilt in order to compensate for spinal bones that are out of position and can’t correct itself on its own. When spinal bones move forward due to strain, injuries or accidents, the body has no muscles to pull the spinal bones straight back. The body must twist, tilt or lean to compensate for this. It is this mechanical response to counter balance that results in the curvature or scoliosis.
