Were you looking for information about Scoliosis? Scoliose is a common misspelling of scoliosis.
Scoliosis is a disorder characterized by a sideways curvature of the backbone. While the cause of this condition is unknown in most cases, some cases are caused by a disease, injury, infection, or birth defect. After a healthcare provider diagnoses the disorder, he or she may recommend bracing, observation, or surgery. Treatment for scoliosis is based on the person's age, the degree and pattern of the curve, the type of scoliosis, and other factors.
