Dr. Wang explains how scoliosis is diagnosed.

Dr. Wang:
Well, scoliosis, since it involves curvature of the spine, it’s first recognized just cosmetically. Oftentimes they’re children, so they’re young of age, and you are looking at their backs and you can just see a deformity or a curvature of the spine.
