Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature that can be visible from behind and often affects the upper back. One hip may be higher than the other, the shoulders and hips may be uneven, and one shoulder blade can appear more prominent than the other. Treatment often involves preventing the curve from becoming worse using a brace. For an extensive curve or a high likelihood of the curve progressing, surgery can be done to correct as much of the curvature as possible and fusing the spine to prevent future problems.
