The word scoliosis comes from the Greek word meaning crooked. For the three out of every 100 people affected by it, that translates to a curvature of the back. Someone with scoliosis may have a back that curves like an “s” or a “c” and it may or may not be noticeable to others. While small curves generally do not cause problems, larger curves can cause discomfort. In some cases, the curves get worse as people grow and they may need a brace or an operation to correct it.
