Correct Posture Neutralises Spinal Stress
Posture Imbalances: Postural Scoliosis
The term “scoliosis” refers to abnormal sideways curvature of the spine measuring at least 10 degrees on an x-ray. Scoliosis is broken down into two categories:
1)Structural scoliosis: A fixed lateral (sideway) curve of the spine which affects the spine structure and can result in spinal deformity.
2)Nonstructural scoliosis like “postural scoliosis” is a result from a temporary cause due to poor posture. It involves a side-to-side curvature of the spine (no spinal rotation) and the spine's structure is still normal.
Postural scoliosis is often related to persistent headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain and hip pain.
Common Postures Causing Postural Imbalances
Improper postures such as carrying bag on one side of the shoulders, standing on dominate legs, duchess slant, cross-legged may lead to muscle spasm. When a major muscle start to spasm, the spine is pulled in one direction causing a sideways spinal curve. Spine curvature may progress from mild to moderate to even severe leading to scoliosis.
