Scoliosis is a condition in which there is an unusual lateral deviation of the spine. Translated simply: When looking at a person from behind, the spine has a C or S-shaped curvature instead of the normal perpendicular alignment.
There are two types of scoliosis: postural scoliosis and structural scoliosis.
Postural scoliosis: Postural scoliosis is basically an adaptation to an imbalance in the base of your support. This type of scoliosis is usually flexible and can be diagnosed on the basis of a physical examination (showing short legs and a relaxed flexible spine curve with lateral trunk flexion). This form of scoliosis is also usually fairly easy to correct.

Structural scoliosis is a little more complicated to treat. There are many types of structural scoliosis. One type is juvenile idiopathic scoliosis. This is a rigid and inflexible curve of the spine, and for unknown reasons, the spine just grows that way.
As the spine continues to grow, there is a risk that it will continue to deteriorate. Chiropractic involves manual adjustments and/or mobilization of the spine to improve flexibility, function, alignment, and mechanical balance. Chiropractic care is also useful for natural pain management. Exercise is also required.
Just because you have scoliosis doesn't guarantee you'll have problems later in life. Many people go on living without knowing it and their scoliosis is discovered incidentally later. Given that, there are some risks with scoliosis. Statistically, larger curves tend to have more pain and an earlier onset of arthritis due to uneven wear and tear on the joints.
