Scoliosis

The Governor's budget for the 2012-2013 school year has suspended the scoliosis screening mandate.
Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine that includes a lateral or sideways curvature and a rotation of the spine. The most common type, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, is a disorder found during the years of rapid growth in girls nine to fourteen years of age and in boys eleven to sixteen years of age. Of the total population, 1.0-2.5% percent will require medical follow-up, which may include periodic observations, active nonsurgical treatment (such as bracing), or surgery, depending on the amount of curvature at the time of detection.  

The purposes of a scoliosis screening program are (1) to identify children with spinal deformities early so that they can be properly diagnosed, treated, and monitored; and (2) to educate students, parents/guardians, school staff, and the community about the need for early detection and treatment.
