Currently, there is no known way to prevent a scoliosis from developing.
The best known ways to prevent a scoliosis from worsening are early detection and prompt treatment.

Type of mattress, sleeping position, position and weight of school bags etc. have been raised as potential influences in the development of scoliosis. However there is no evidence to suggest these things cause or make a significant impact to the development of scoliosis curves.
