Scoliosis is most prevalent in the youth and pre-puberty population due to the large amount of growth hormones and physical changes occurring in their bodies. As children’s bodies grow, it can often become distorted and mis-shapen, like how a tree can grow crooked without support to keep them straight. Thus, it is important to have consistent care and management throughout children’s growth period to make sure they can properly grow without any interference to influence their posture poorly.
In adults, scoliosis can be managed to reduce pain and increase mobility in the joints for a better quality of life. Depending on the type of scoliosis and the severity of the curves, treatment can be done to help reduce the curves.
