Early Onset Scoliosis

Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis

Introduction

Juvenile idiopathic scoliosis is a type of scoliosis that is first diagnosed between the ages of 4 and 10. This category makes up about 10% to 15% of all idiopathic scoliosis in children. At the younger end of the spectrum, boys are affected slightly more than girls and the curve is often left-sided. Towards the upper end of the age spectrum, the condition is more like adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, with a predominance of girls and right-sided curves.
