By Ann Johnson | Sep 15th, 2017

Shriners Hospitals for Children® is changing lives every day through innovative pediatric specialty care, world-class research and outstanding medical education. Shriners Hospitals for Children is also a leader in the treatment of scoliosis.

Scoliosis is a progressive condition, so early detection can mean more treatment options. The orthopedic specialists at Shriners Hospitals encourage parents to make spine checks part of their back-to-school routine each year. The new SpineScreen app can be used to help parents check their children for possible signs of scoliosis.

Shriners Hospitals for Children has 22 locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico that provide advanced pediatric specialty care, regardless of the families' ability to pay. For more information on SpineScreen and scoliosis treatment options, please visit shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/scoliosis.
