    May be everything only a genetic issue but I think that girls are weaker than boys, more susceptible to hormonal changes, they have less muscular mass.. gravity force may find less resistance in much of them.. I believe that boys with scoliosis probably are also weaker, with less muscular mass, less resistant.. I suppose it should to be known if it's true or not.
