"Symptoms depend on the magnitude of the curvature," said Dr. Francois Lalonde, a pediatric orthopedic specialist at Children's Hospital of Orange County.

It's cost-effective if you catch it early on and can have an effect on the outcome," said Lalonde.
What are the treatment options?

"If you're young and have this condition, there's a chance it could progress with growth," Lalonde said.
A curve severe enough to require treatment is 8 percent more common in females. Having family members with scoliosis increases a person's risk by 20 percent, according to the Scoliosis Research Society.

The families and patients are active in decision-making," Lalonde said.
We try to maintain mobile segments above and below the fusions," Lalonde said. "The more segments that are left, the more mobility they'll have after."
The operation usually lasts four to eight hours and the patient remains in a hospital for up to a week. Children can return to school after four to six weeks, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and can participate in sports within six months to a year.
"It's a major surgical event and a stressful time," Lalonde said.
"People can expect to live a good life after surgery and minimize having back issues in the future," Lalonde said.
