What causes scoliosis?

Scoliosis is not linked to bad posture, exercise, or diet, so what causes the curvature of the spine?

“In most cases, the cause of scoliosis is unknown and it cannot usually be prevented,” the NHS states.

There can be a family history of the condition, which suggests a possible genetic link.

How is scoliosis diagnosed?

A doctor will want to check the spine, ribs, hips, and shoulders before a referral to a specialist is made.
