The major cause of scoliosis is primarily due to disorders such as muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy, and are most common causative conditions, and other cause of scoliosis is still unknown. In early cases, scoliosis is minor, however if untreated or unresolved may lead to severe deformities. Scoliosis results in reducing space within chest cavity, thus, causes difficulties in the proper functioning of lungs. The other factors such as environmental factors and genetic factors can also cause scoliosis. In addition, scoliosis management consists of complex procedures for correcting the shape of the spine and management steps are selected based on the level of severity of the disorder and bone maturity coupled with the degree of progression of scoliosis which may differ in males and females. For scoliosis management, braces, physical therapies such as exercise, self-care, and leisure, alternative medicines, and surgeries are often used.
