Raising Awareness on World Scoliosis Day at B. P. Poddar Hospital & Medical Research Limited

Understanding Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a medical condition characterized by an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine. While mild scoliosis often goes unnoticed, severe cases can lead to significant physical discomfort, reduced lung function, and decreased quality of life. Scoliosis can develop during childhood or adolescence and may progress as the individual grows. Early detection and appropriate management are crucial for mitigating its impact.

World Scoliosis Awareness Day and Its Global Initiative

Observed annually on June 30th, World Scoliosis Awareness Day aims to educate the public about scoliosis, its early detection, and available treatments. This day brings together healthcare professionals, patients, and advocacy groups to share their experiences and raise awareness about this often misunderstood condition.
