Scoliosis is a three dimensional rotation of the spine, a twisting as such. Most people will notice it when they look in the mirror and one shoulder is higher or lower than the other, or one hip is more sideways than the other. Parents or loved ones may see in from behind when one side of the spine sits higher than the other side. It usually doesn't hurt to much when you are a child, the pain usually starts when you are an adult, and the curve slowly gets worse. Current research tells us that an adult scoliosis can continue to degenerate by up to half a degree per year. Creating more pain and more dysfunction...
