This analysis emphasiz some aspects of ethiology, biomechanics and pathophysiology in idiopathic scoliosis. The ehiology of idiopathic scoliosis is not yet fully elucidated, but it seems that the real explanation it could be a transitory disorder of central nervous system, more accurate is balance posture system which integrates visual, proprioception and vestibular information. Biomechanics speaking, is triple deformity: a curve of the spine in the frontal plane, a rotation of the vertebra in the horizontal plane and a lordosis in a sagittal plane. Even we know all the evolutional risks of one curve it is difficult to indicate the evolutional profile of scoliosis after one examination. Anyway, a patient’s global evolution, a chronological study of all growth parameters associated to an objective radiological measurement, will constitute arguments which will lead to a therapeutic decision

Key words:

scoliosis, proprioception, assesment
