Scoliosis is defined as a sideways curve of the spine. Idiopathic (cause not known) scoliosis can develop in the growing child so it is important to be assessed during the growth periods particularly around puberty. The government used to fund assessment at schools but no longer provides this service. This video gives some basic tips for parents who wish to assess their children.
