Some people suffer from "Scoliosis" -- an abnormal curvature of the spine, one characterized by a rotational side-to-side deformity.  Although, everyone's spine or back has a natural front-to-back curve -- that's what produces the normal rounding of the shoulders and the sway of the lower back.

In simple terms, what this means is that the spine is twisted side-to-side, often taking on an "S" shaped appearance and even resembling a corkscrew.

  • Scoliosis can be from unknown causes termed 'idiopathic'
  • Sometime can be due to uneven stresses from sports or heavy backpacks
  • We can relieve undue pressure and tension on the spine and muscle.

Almost three out of every 100 people have a degree of abnormal spinal curvature, and for others it never becomes a serious problem. But for many others, the curve gets worse over time and can cause considerable back pain, frustration, and limitations on normal activities. Severe scoliosis can even complicate breathing and circulation.

The most common form of scoliosis is called idiopathic scoliosis, which basically means that the cause is unknown. Anyone can suffer from scoliosis; the condition usually begins in childhood, although too often it is not identified until the teenage years or later.

Scoliosis tends to run in families, and it affects many more girls. In fact, research indicates that girls are nearly eight times more likely to have scoliosis and five times more likely to require treatment for their condition, and the curvature of their spine in most cases will worsen over time, if left unattended.
