Scoliosis Screening Program

In conjunction with Florida state mandates, SCPS School Board Registered Nurses conduct scoliosis screenings for all 6th grade students. Scoliosis is a medical condition in which there is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Although scoliosis can develop at any age, it is most common during adolescence, when most children are growing rapidly. Scoliosis can quickly worsen during this growth spurt, making early detection and intervention essential. If left untreated, scoliosis could lead to a number of health problems later in life.
