Scoliosis, or curvature of the spine, is one of the most common types of spinal deformity. It can occur at birth, but is usually diagnosed between the ages of 10-15. The first indications may be subtle, and can include uneven shoulders or one hip higher than the other. A routine physical exam can often spot these first signs – and early detection is key to avoiding a severe deformity.
