Scoliosis

Assessment

Obvious asymmetries are noticed along the contour of the back, elevation of shoulders, prominence of scapula,  a rib hump and functional assessment through forward bending will confirm structural scoliosis

Right/Left

Scoliosis involves a side bend and rotation in the spine that causes your shoulders to be uneven, a pelvic tilt and rib compression and rotation

Males/Female

Although the incidence os scoliosis is greater in women, it can occur in males as well
