From the Mayo Clinic (see related link): Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty.
While scoliosis can be caused by conditions and birth defects such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy and Spina Bifida (which I was born with), the cause of most scoliosis is unknown.
Some with mild cases of Scoliosis are only monitored for progression while others may require bracing. In severe cases surgery may be required.

I had scoliosis for 4 years and continue to have it. I have had years of research and from what I've learned, scoliosis is simply a deformity. :)
Absolutely! Scoliosis can totally be inherited. If a parent has scoliosis or has the recessive gene for it, the child can inherit it.
It depends really. It depends on how severe your scoliosis is. Scoliosis can make you appear shorter on the outside.
As I have heard, there is no particular alternative treatment for scoliosis. Treatments like biofeedback cannot prevent scoliosis. Exercise has not been confirmed to affect change on scoliosis.
