About Scoliosis and Kyphosis

Scoliosis is a progressive lateral (sideways) curvature of the spine. It is most often first detected in childhood or early adolescence. The most common type of scoliosis is called “Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis”
Kyphosis is the term used to describe the front to back curve of the spine which causes a "hunching"/forward bending.

Adolescent scoliosis

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is a 3D deformity of the spine causing sideways bending and rotation of the spine. It is often detected in early adolescence as the child starts their major growth spurt. (From around 10 years old). It occurs in approximately 3 percent of the general population and is more common in girls. The term “idiopathic” means that no one specific cause has been identified, although there are many theories as to why the spine starts to bend and deform.

Adult scoliosis

When a scoliosis is diagnosed in adults, it is either a result of a childhood scoliosis which has only been detected in adulthood, or the result of spinal degeneration, trauma or disease. Adult scoliosis in older patients is often associated with complaints of back pain.
