Do Car Accidents Cause Scoliosis?
Most people probably do not associate the word “scoliosis” with automobile accidents. But the two subjects are more closely related than you may realize. The “all clear” you got from your your nurse many years ago does not preclude the possibility of developing scoliosis later in your adult life. A long list of external factors can cause someone to develop scoliosis, but the condition occurs most frequently during the growth spurt that happens right before puberty. That’s why the link between scoliosis and car accidents is so surprising to many people.
