Thanks for the explanation. i just read it in a medical book kasi that scoliosis is more common in women than in men, kaya nacurious lang naman ako kung bakit kasi hindi nila inexplain.The cause of the is unknown, much less why it occurs more often in females than in males, but there are certainly hereditary factors present here. By hereditary factors, it doesn't necessarily mean that you won't acquire scoliosis just because your parents or grandparents didn't manifest any signs of having the condition. There may have been a silent gene that you inherited from your elders. There are also some theories which say that it is caused by nutritional and hormonal factors. However, as mentioned, since the cause is still unknown, these are just speculative.
