Shriners Hospitals for Children is a trusted leader in scoliosis care, with comprehensive scoliosis treatment options available at 20 of its locations in North America. The Shriners Hospitals for Children SpineScreen app allows you to perform a preliminary spine check on your child, in the comfort and privacy of your own home. And, the app is easy to use!

Simply move your smartphone along your child’s spine and the app detects any abnormal curves.  As this is strictly an initial check, it should be followed up by a doctor’s examination to determine if your child has scoliosis. If your child does have scoliosis, Shriners Hospitals for Children may be able to help.

With the SpineScreen app, you can:

  • Learn the signs of scoliosis and treatment options available 
  • Perform a preliminary spine check on your child at home
  • Schedule calendar reminders for annual screenings
