    If no Treatment is Done Will the Curve get Worse?
    Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

    Two factors can strongly predict whether a scoliosis curve will get worse: patient age and a curve size. Larger curves (> 30°) in younger children are the most concerning for progression.

    We know from studies that once someone is fully grown, scoliosis less than 30° tends to stay the same, while those curves greater than 50° can get worse over time, by about 1° per year.
