Non-Structural Scoliosis (Postural Scoliosis)
Scoliosis refers to an abnormal deviation in the curvature of the spine usually seen in x-rays as a lateral (sideways) S or C curvature. Non-structural scoliosis are lateral curvatures of the spine caused by reversible changes to posture and function. They can be straightened voluntarily or when in a non-weight bearing position. They are typically caused by pain, muscle spasm, pelvic torsion or a difference in leg length.
