SpineScreen Revolutionizes Scoliosis Screeing
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that shows up most often during adolescent growth spurts. Left undetected or untreated, scoliosis can lead to serious health problems; parents should make sure their kids are screened for scoliosis yearly. Shriners Hospitals for Children® is making scoliosis screening easy and quick with a new app called SpineScreen.

The app measures abnormal curves when the phone is moved along a child’s spine, setting reminders for future checks.
