What is Non-Structural Scoliosis (Postural Scoliosis)?

Scoliosis refers to an abnormal deviation in the curvature of the spine, is often seen in x-rays as a lateral (sideways) S or C curvature. Non-structural scoliosis refers to lateral curvatures of the spine caused by reversible changes to posture and function. These lateral curvatures can be straightened voluntarily or when in a non-weight bearing position.

They are typically caused by pain, muscle spasms, muscle imbalance and/or weakness, poor posture, pelvic torsion or a difference in leg lengths.

For residents seeking chiropractic care in Baulkham Hills, a chiropractor plays a pivotal role in diagnosing the root cause of non-structural scoliosis and providing targeted treatment. By addressing the underlying issues such as pain, muscle imbalances, or poor posture, chiropractic interventions aim to resolve the non-structural scoliosis, offering relief and improved spinal alignment.
