Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. It usually manifests during puberty, and often goes undetected when not severe enough. With scoliosis, the impairments caused by the misalignment of the spinal vertebra can become more severe as we get older. This can also be due to improper posture, weight distribution, and poor biomechanics over our lifetime.
Scoliosis typically results in a leg length discrepancy, uneven shoulders, with the shoulder blade appearing more prominent on one side than on the other, neck and back pain, and limited mobility.
Although scoliosis cannot be reversed, the pain and discomfort felt from it can be alleviated with physical therapy interventions.
