Scoliosis causes both physical and emotional pain
Scoliosis is characterized by curves in the spine that deviate from the central line of the vertebrae,, which in general should be a straight line. In some cases, these deviations can cause pain or the inability to maintain proper posture. Scoliosis can affect the nerves exiting each of the vertebrae or can cause premature degeneration of the vertebrae or discs.
