Scoliosis is a major deformation of the spine and the biomechanics studies aim at describing the development of the normal and the scoliosis spine, understanding the imbalances that arise during growth and analyzing the alterations which appear at the disk levels and the vertebral bodies.

Scoliosis can be studied by analyzing the rachidian curvatures and the constraints on the vertebral column, but also by examining the modifications of the intervertebral disks.

New technologies as The EOS Imaging system and 3D reconstruction of the Spine allow a modelization of the deformation and the development of new tools that assess the risk of evolution of the deformation.
