Second case: in a left lumbar scoliosis, the major point of the curve is to the left and is concentrated in the lower back region.
Third case: for different type of scoliosis is the right thoraco-lumbar, where the major point of the curve is to the right in the thoracic and lumbar region.

A scoliosis can be structural or functional, but the structural variety is more serious and it can develops as a result of unequal growth of the two sides of the vertebral bodies. Most of the time it appears during adolescence, what cause it, is not very much understood.
On the orther side, functional scoliosis only affects the back muscles and does not structurally cause modifications to the body. Poor posture or repeated unbalanced activity are the most causes known. For example carrying books on one side of the body/back.
Functional scoliosis is much more common than structural scoliosis. It is much less noticeable since the degree of curvature is less, and almost always reversible.Recent PostsCategoriesTagsHow To Get Rid Of ScoliosisScoliosis YogasYoga For Scoliosis© 2016 Yoga For Scoliosis. All Right Reserved.
