The cause according to Scoliosis research society.

Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Scoliosis in patients between 10 and 18 years of age is termed adolescent scoliosis and  can be due to many causes. By far the most common type of scoliosis in the adolescent  period is one in which the cause is not known and is called idiopathic or adolescent  idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Although significant ongoing research continues in this  area, including the genetic basis for AIS, there are no identifiable causes for this  condition today.
Despite this, we currently have accurate methods to determine the  risk for curve progression of scoliosis and good methods of treatment.
