Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves into a, c, or s shape. After determining the degree of curvature using an instrument called a Cobb angle, the specialist can recommend the necessary treatment. 

The pain of scoliosis is a result of this curvature and is proportional to the degree of curvature of the spine. Although this disease can affect people of all ages, it is more common in children and adolescents. There are various non-surgical scoliosis therapies   to treat scoliosis pain.

It is also an inherited condition that likely affects many people in the same family. Scoliosis pain can be mild or very severe. In mild cases, doctors recommend braces as a method of treatment. 

In severe cases, surgery is the most effective method of treatment. In general, early detection of the condition allows early treatment, before the curvature worsens.

The severity of the disease depends on the degree of curvature. The pain caused can even cause paralysis and rib pain. There are several signs that people should watch for in their children to determine if they have the condition or not. they include

* Unbalanced chest

* Improper waist

* Uneven shoulders

* Uneven thighs

Once you find these signs, it is highly recommended to take your child to a specialist so that he can diagnose the condition early. Exercise can also reduce pain from scoliosis.
