Scoliosis is a condition where the spine has a curve in it, where there should not be a curve. The curve can be quite mild to quite severe. The curve is usually an S-curve shaped when looking at the spine from behind. From the front it may look like one hip is higher than the other, however, one hip higher than the other does not always mean you have a Scoliosis.
A Scoliosis can be structural, which means it is in your bone structure. The other possibilities but not entirely inclusive are due to muscle tension, spasm, or leg length discrepancies. Curvature of the spine can result in quite restricted joints and muscles creating mild to very severe pain.
Physiotherapy can assist with the different forms of Scoliosis people experience. Whether it is stretching exercises, strengthening, flexibility training, or ideas to assist with decreasing pain a Physiotherapist can be of assistance.
