Scoliosis

Scoliosis is defined as a lateral (side) curvature of the spine that may occur in children or adults; a related condition, kyphosis, is a (usually convex) curvature of the spine that causes hunchback and other degrees of spinal distress depending upon the degree of the curve and location on the spine. There are many types of these disorders (e.g., lordosis), as well as both non-surgical and surgical treatment for the pain and other adverse effects of the conditions.
