Scoliosis is caused by carrying heavy objects (such as a heavy school bag on one shoulder), exercise or physical activity, poor standing or sleeping posture, or a lack of calcium in the diet. Scoliosis affects the whole body.
The part of the spine located in the chest is called thoracic scoliosis, which is defined as a lateral curvature of the spine, which is abnormally present, the name comes from the Greek word for curvature.

This can be damaging because when the spine bends to the side, the vertebrae (individual bones that make up the spine) rotate, pulling the ribs with them, sometimes creating a "bulge" behind and protruding the shoulder blades – the ribs hump.
The causes of scoliosis are varied; the origins of this condition remain complex and unclear. There are two main types of scoliosis – idiopathic (without an obvious cause) and syndromes (curvature is part of a recognized medical condition).
Idiopathic scoliosis is the cause of most spinal deformities and can appear early, before age 7 years, or late, after that age, usually in adolescence. There is some genetic link as about 25% of scoliosis patients have a direct relative with the curvature. 80% of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis occurs in girls and 80% of these girls have a protruding rib on the right side.
