What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a medical condition where the spine curves to form a “S” shape or a “C” shape. There is usually 1 main curve which affects the chest area, bu there can be also multiple curves affecting different parts of the spine. Scoliosis can often be treated non-surgically.
Scoliosis can be caused by poor standing, sitting, sleeping postures. It can also be caused by sports or physical activities that are not practised correctly. Misalginment can occur when one side of the body is stronger than the other side. For example, if one consistantly stand with more weight with one leg, the hip might be affected, one hip might be higer or more forward compared to another, which will lead to the change of the spine curvature in the lower back area to be pushed towards one side.
