Scoliosis is a medical condition that causes a sideways curvature of the spine. This spinal disorder affects people of all ages, but statistics show that adolescents are at a greater risk of this abnormal curvature. While most cases of this spinal disorder are mild, the deformity gets worse if not treated. Your spinal doctor classifies scoliosis with no known cause based on age:
Infantile idiopathic scoliosis affects children younger than three years old.
Juvenile idiopathic scoliosis affects those between the ages of three and 10.
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis affects people between 10 and 18 years of age.
Adult idiopathic scoliosis appears in adults older than 18 years old.
