Scoliosis in adolescents is commonly idiopathic. Levoscoliosis describes the spine when it curves to the left side of the body. Dextroscoliosis describes the spine when it curves to the right side of the body. In this case, observation is sufficient as it is in curves smaller than 25 degrees if the patient is still growing or 50 degrees if the patient has completed their growth.
