Explanation: Scoliosis that develops in adulthood can be a "secondary" cause of another
spinal condition that affects the vertebrae of the spine. Other conditions
might include degeneration, osteoporosis (loss of bone mass), or osteomalacia (softening of the bones). Scoliosis can also appear following spinal surgery for other conditions. The surgery may cause an imbalance in the spine that leads to scoliosis. Most of these "secondary" causes of scoliosis are considered degenerative adult scoliosis.
