Scoliosis is a commonly found disorder associated with the spine. It causes the bones of the spine to twist or bend that makes the spine look like the letter C or S instead of a straight line. There are three types of Scoliosis- Idiopathic, Congenital and Neuromuscular, with the first one comprising 80% of the cases. Bracing is the most simple form of treatment for Scoliosis and if the situation gets worse, surgery becomes inevitable.
