Bismillahirahmanirahim ,
The entry for sharing today is related about scoliosis, its one of the defaulted of spine and mostly affect to the girl compare than boy , the info in here hope will give you some idea related of this kind of problem.

What is Scoliosis?
Everyone's spine has natural curves. These curves round our shoulders and make our lower back curve slightly inward.
But some people have spines that also curve from side to side. It’s called SCOLIOSIS.

This condition of side-to-side spinal curves is called scoliosis. On an X-ray, the spine of an individual with scoliosis looks more like an "S" or a "C" than a straight line. Some of the bones in a scoliotic spine also may have rotated slightly, making the person's waist or shoulders appear uneven.

The importance of early detection
Scoliosis can go unnoticed in a child because it is rarely painful in the formative years. Therefore, watch for the following "tip-offs" to scoliosis beginning when child is about eight years of age:

·         -uneven shoulders
·         -prominent shoulder blade or shoulder    blades
·         -uneven waist
·         -elevated hips
·         -leaning to one side

Tests for scoliosis

·         Any one of these signs warrants an examination by the family physician, pediatrician or orthopedist.

·         Some schools sponsor scoliosis screenings. Although only a physician can accurately diagnose scoliosis, school screenings can help alert parents to the presence of its warning signs in their child

What causes scoliosis?
·         In most (80 to 85 percent) cases, the cause of scoliosis is unknown - a condition called idiopathic scoliosis. In other cases, scoliosis may develop as a result of degeneration of the spinal disks, as seen with osteoporosis, or as a hereditary condition that tends to run in families.
·         Nearly one-half million adolescents have a curve that requires monitoring. Girls are affected four times as often as boys, and there is a tendency for this condition to occur in families.

·         Scoliosis is not usually painful in adolescence, but can become so in adulthood.
·         Braces do not make the spine straight.
·         Smoking does interfere with bone healing.
·         The metal rods inserted during bone fusion surgery do not activate the metal detectors at airports, and do not rust.
·         Surgery does not interfere with normal childbearing.
·         Spinal deformities are not contagious.
