The clinical examination of the scoliotic child's profile shows that it does not correspond to the physiological curvatures. This three-dimensional study of scoliosis shows evidence of the existence of three components, frontal, sagittal, and axial. Each generates a pathological displacement of the vertebrae maximal at the apical vertebral level. Because of rotation, in order to analyze each of the components, radiographs must be taken along the frontal or sagittal plane of the vertebrae. A… CONTINUE READING
