Scoliosis is derived from the Greek “Crookedness” or crookedness. Scoliosis affects the ligaments and muscles of the spine, causing the spine, ribs and pelvis bent. Many different causes of scoliosis. Most deformities of scoliosis are idiopathic (cause unknown). Often a person with scoliosis have had the condition since childhood, but due to scoliosis develops very fast, most scoliosis cases are not diagnosed until the age of 10-14 years.

In scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine from side to side like the shape of an “S”, can be seen when the curvature is getting worse and also cause inconvenience. If the curvature is already a very severe finally can disrupt breathing and heart function. It can also damage the joints of the spine and pain in the elderly.

Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine in the frontal plane abnormal sideways to occur in the cervical segments (neck), thoracic (back), and lumbar (loin). Formed curve may be convex to the right (more often at chest level curve) or to the left (more common in the lower back curve). The spine may revolve around its axis, deforming the ribs. Scoliosis can be measured by the degree of curvature. People who suffer from scoliosis with curvature <25 ° is expected to only be in asymmetry in the spine direction only. In children who experience the degree of curvature large enough, it can be experienced curvature between 25 ° -40 ° and can be malformed during infancy. People with scoliosis with the curvature of 300 in adolescence may experience an increasing curvature up to 600. That is why the scoliosis patient should immediately undergo treatment therapies or other treatments are helpful enough to avoid a poor prognosis.
