Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine in the frontal, sagittal and transverse plane. According to the etiology, it may be primary (idiopathic) or secondary (mainly neuromuscular). It is more common in girls and mostly develops during adolescence. In addition to aesthetic problems, scoliosis may cause back pain. Progressive scoliosis with a Cobb angle of above 50° causes irreversible damage to the respiratory function and is an indication for surgical treatment. Scoliosis specific exercises (SSE) are used alone or in combination with braces for conservative treatment at a Cobb angle of more than 20°. During the last twenty years many published papers have proven that conservative treatment of scoliosis is successful, is able to stop the progression and is able to correct the angle of scoliosis. The treatment is carried out by a specially trained team consisting of physicians, orthotists and physiotherapists. It is necessary to ensure that the patient cooperates and receives support from family and friends.
