June is Scoliosis Awareness Month

Scoliosis is a condition that causes the spine to abnormally curve sideways, into an “S” or “C” shape.

- Although many people have not heard of the condition it is surprisingly common, impacting infants, adolescents and adults of all races, classes and both genders.

- Approximately one out of every six children diagnosed with scoliosis will have a curve that requires active treatment, sometimes involving surgery.
- Early diagnosis is the key to taking important first steps to providing treatment that may prevent more serious problems.
