Scoliosis refers to abnormal condition of spine where the spine curves laterally in the frontal region. This could be as a result of irregular muscles on both the sides of the spine, uneven hips, arm, or legs, or an abnormal rib cage rotation. Idiopathic scoliosis is the most commonly seen form of the condition.
Years of poor posture or conditions such as Ankylosing Spondylitis, Scheuermann disease or Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH) can result in Kyphosis. It refers to the abnormal condition with outward curvature of the thoracic.It is more prevalent among the elderly. Kyphosis causes imbalance because of abnormal spineflexion. Kyphosis is affects 4-8% of the general population.
Lordosis refers to the abnormal curvature of the lumbar spine resulting in low back pain as well as muscle spasms. It is commonly seen in dancers and individuals who do not lift weight well and those who have irregular muscles between the abdomen and lower back.
If the spine is 50 degrees or greater than the normal range of curvature, surgery is necessary. Chiropractic therapy can stop, or even reverse the symptoms of abnormal spinal curvature.
