How to use "Scoliosis" in context?

Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that can occur in any body part. It is often noted during infancy or early childhood, but can sometimes go undetected until adolescence or adulthood. Because scoliosis can affect any part of the spine, it can cause rounding of the back, difficulty breathing, and extreme pain. Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the scoliosis, but often involve a combination of surgery, medications, and/or physical therapy.
