Hello,

Scoliosis is a spine condition where one part of the spine is curved to the either side of the body because of the spine deformity.

Hips take care of the alterations in gait and hence the prominence of hips while walking with increasing age the angle of scoliosis increases. If the angle is more than a certain extent, it needs surgical correction. If it is below a certain extent, braces can be used to correct the deformity to some extent.

You need to be evaluated with the help of X-rays and Cobb's angle measured over X-rays. Kindly consult an orthopedician for further evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. I wish you the best.

Thank you.

Regards,
