How to recognize scoliosis
Scoliosis is a twist of the spine. For most, the skew is small, but in some cases it can become so large that it looks like a hump.

How to recognize scoliosis
The first sign of a scoliosis may be that you have difficulty putting on your clothes. Do you feel that the clothes do not fit right?
When you stand in front of the mirror, do you feel that your back is tilting more than it should? Or that the right shoulder blade is more prominent than the left? Or vice versa? Is your waist crooked or one hip higher than the other?
Or are you suffering from back pain? Maybe these symptoms mean that you have a skew in the back.
The doctor can make an assessment by examining your back and comparing it with a straight rod. The doctor can also take X-rays to check if there is a scoliosis in the back. A curve of 10 degrees is considered mild, 20 degrees moderately severe and over 40 degrees severe.
Scoliosis is a twist of the spine. For most, the skew is small, but in some cases it can become so large that it looks like a hump. The skew may be in one or both directions, which in rare cases can lead to problems with heart and lungs.
The cause of scoliosis is not clear, but it is believed that both heredity and environmental factors play a role. It is suspected that girls are more prone to scoliosis than boys.
Scoliosis is a skew in the back, often in the form of an S or C. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and the disease occurs more rarely than other common musculoskeletal diseases, but it is one of those that can be treated.
In scoliosis, the spine is skewed to the side, either to the right or left. Often, in addition to being skewed, there will also be a rotational component so that the spine looks like an S or C. Usually, a scoliosis develops only on one side of the body. In rare cases, however, it can occur on both sides.
A mild scoliosis may not be noticed until an X-ray examination is performed. The diagnosis is usually made when you see the back “curve” to one side when standing and looking at the person from behind.
The cause of scoliosis is unknown. About two percent of all children have a skew over ten degrees in their backs and girls are twice as likely to get it as boys. Scoliosis occurs most often between 10 and 15 years old. Those who are close relatives to someone with scoliosis are at increased risk of having it themselves.
The most common cause of a scoliosis is that the spine has not grown properly. This is the case in about 80% of those who have scoliosis. If it is detected early, there may be a chance that the spine will grow straight again, but once the growth is over, it will not change straight.
Another form of scoliosis is when one leg is shorter than the other. It also gives a bias in the back and you can usually feel that one leg seems to be shorter than the other when standing next to each other.
The third type of scoliosis is when there are scars in the lungs or lymphatic system that can cause an imbalance in the body, which then causes scoliosis. This is usually done through x-rays and other examinations. A very rare form of scoliosis is Marfan syndrome, which can give both a scoliosis and a long trunk.
It is not uncommon for new parents to notice that their child has a slightly curved back when they lie down in the bathtub. This phenomenon is called scoliosis.
The cause of the bias can vary, but often it is just a natural curvature of the spine, which is harmless. In some cases, however, there may be a more severe skew, which requires treatment.
Scoliosis often occurs during puberty, but it can also occur during adulthood.
