scoli/o is a combining form that refers to “curved”.

The condition of scoliosis involves a lateral curvature of the spine that is commonly seen during adolescence. It is known that scoliosis can develop in people with disabilities including cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, but the cause of most childhood scoliosis remains unclear. The majority of scoliosis cases are mild, but some curves become more severe with age.
