Scoliosis is when the spine curves the spine in a lateral motion of at least ten degrees or more. My STEAM Project is specifically focused on the types of scoliosis that can occur in childhood and adulthood. The art piece shown depicts the types of scoliosis that caused the specific curvature of the spine in children and adults: idiopathic congenital, neuromuscular, and degenerative scoliosis. Idiopathic is not included because the cause of this type of scoliosis is unknown.
