Health Days 2023

World Scoliosis Awareness Day


Scoliosis is a sudden or hereditary inclination of the spine that usually has no obvious causes, and most of the sufferers are adolescents (the age group is between 10-15 years).

Its treatment depends on the age and the severity of the curvature. One of the methods of treatment is a plaster cast or a plastic brace for children, or physical therapy for scoliosis in simple cases, or by surgery on the spine.
  • Highlight the importance of early diagnosis and the effectiveness of bracing as early non-surgical care.
  • Increase public awareness of scoliosis and related spine conditions through education campaigns and advocacy for local activities and community events.
Scoliosis Signs:
  • Protrusion in one of the shoulder blades.
  • Protrusion of the ribs on one side.
  • One hip or one shoulder is higher than the other.
  • Curvature and tilt in the spine.
  • The clothes don't fit well.
