Is it possible for only your legs to grow and not your upper body? I have mild scoliosis and my legs feels longer. Does that affect my spine or no?

In brief: Growth plates

There are defined times for growth plates to close, so yes, there are periods in your lifetime when legs will grow independently to the rest of your body.
