Causes of Scoliosis

In most (80 to 85 percent) cases, the cause of scoliosis is unknown - a condition called idiopathic scoliosis. In other cases, scoliosis may develop as a result of degeneration of the spinal disks, as seen with osteoporosis, or as a hereditary condition that tends to run in families.

The abnormal curves of the spine are classified according to their cause, including the following:

  • nonstructural scoliosis (Also called functional scoliosis.) In this condition, a structurally normal spine appears curved due to one or more underlying conditions (i.e., difference in leg length, an inflammatory condition, etc.). This type of scoliosis is generally temporary and is often relieved when the underlying condition is treated.

  • structural scoliosis
The possible causes of structural scoliosis are numerous, including the following:

o of unknown origin (idiopathic structural scoliosis)
o disease (i.e., neuromuscular, metabolic, connective tissue, or rheumatoid disease)
o birth defect
o injury
o infection
o abnormal growth or tumor
