What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that sometimes also includes rotation of the spine. It is different from other spinal curvature conditions.
In kyphosis, the spine is curved forward resulting in a rounded back and lordosis is a condition in which the spine is curved backwards. Scoliosis is not a disease, but a condition which can occur in otherwise healthy individuals.
