Abstract
As the prevalence of health problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle increases, there is a worldwide promotion of sporting activities to stimulate physical activity. Hence the number of children and adolescents participating in recreational and competitive sports is growing. As a consequence, more children will seek a pre-participation physical examination. During this evaluation, scoliosis is often detected for the first time. In order to give adequate information, a physician dealing with children and adolescents has to have knowledge about scoliosis, its progression and potential complications.
