Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine, the "dorsal" indicates the location or type of curvature. Your doctor can explain more thoroughly, and if he feels that treatment is needed. Most cases of scoliosis don't require treatment.

For more information, please check out this link to the National Scoliosis Foundation: http://www.scoliosis.org/info.php
I didn't find specific information about dorsal scoliosis, but there is good information. The website isn't regularly updated, but you probably could send in a request for information in you wanted to.

Scoliosis does not affect the brain although it can affect walking and sitting/posture.
