Idiopathic Scoliosis

Idiopathic scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity in the world. Like other forms of scoliosis, idiopathic scoliosis affects the curvature of the spine. Instead of a straight line down the middle of the back, a spine with scoliosis curves and sometimes looks more like the letter “S” or “C,” rather than a straight “I.”
