Were you looking for information about Scoliosis? Scolisis is a common misspelling of scoliosis.
People with scoliosis, a musculoskeletal disorder, have a side-to-side curve in their spine. Out of every 1,000 children, 3 to 5 of them will develop spinal curves that are considered large enough to need treatment. Observation is recommended for those with a curve of less than 25 degrees and who are still growing. For more severe cases of scoliosis, braces and surgical procedures may be recommended to straighten the spine and prevent further curvature.
