Caption

Scoliosis of the spine. Posterior view of a woman suffering from lateral (sideways) curvature of the spine, known as scoliosis. Here an S-shaped spine is seen with curvature most obviously affecting the right hand side of the body. Scoliosis begins typically in childhood, and may progress to an S- shaped spine until the age when growth stops. The condition may result from congenital abnormality of the spine; from polio; arthritis; or due to one leg being shorter than the other. Slight scoliosis of unknown cause may not require treatment. Progressive scoliosis may need spinal immobilization with a brace or surgery.
