What are the most common spinal deformities that require recognition by the clinician

Traditionally spinal deformities have been classified into those that affect predominantly the coronal plane (e.g. idiopathic scoliosis) and those affecting the sagittal plane (e.g. Scheuermann's kyphosis). In reality, spinal deformities are complex and simultaneously affect the sagittal, coronal, and axial plane alignment of the spinal column and its relationship to pelvis and thoracic cage. A spinal deformity may result from a pathologic process at a single vertebra level (e.g. spondylolisthesis), or multiple spinal levels (e.g. Scheuermann's kyphosis), or it may involve the entire spinal column and pelvis due to compromised postural support mechanisms (e.g. neuromuscular scoliosis).
