What Is Scoliosis?

It is a condition in which the spine curves abnormally. If you are suffering from scoliosis, your spine has a larger lateral curvature, resulting in a noticeable "S" or "C" form when seen from the front or back. Uneven shoulders, protrusion of the lower back, a hump at the ribcage are all signs of this curvature, which is not always visible to the eye.

Scoliosis in Adults

Adult scoliosis may be caused due to adolescent scoliosis, which is normally diagnosed during a person's adolescent years. Adults may acquire scoliosis, although most of them may be suffering from scoliosis for the bulk of their lives. A person suffering from adult scoliosis may have the following symptoms.

Scoliosis Causes

The exact cause of scoliosis in the spine is unknown. The most typical kind of scoliosis is classified as idiopathic scoliosis, which means without a recognized cause.

Scoliosis curves may also be linked to structural issues such as disc degeneration or "misaligned" vertebrae. These curves may also be caused by musculoskeletal abnormalities, nervous system problems, or variances in leg length.

Chiropractors use the above information to check for scoliosis in adolescents and children. The individual being evaluated is requested to lean forward and touch the fingertips to the toes during this assessment. The ribs on the spine's each side are next examined by the chiropractor. The chiropractor may suspect scoliosis if the sides of the ribcage are misaligned.
