Scoliosis is often found during a well-child checkup or school screening. A child with scoliosis may not have any symptoms yet. More severe curves may cause symptoms, such as:

  • Uneven shoulder blades
  • Uneven hip bones
  • Large shoulder blades or ribs on one side
  • Uneven waist
  • Appearance of leaning to one side
  • Tired muscles after sitting for a long time
  • Back pain
