Scoliosis

What is nonstructural scoliosis?

A Answers (1)

  • Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves from side-to-side, appearing somewhat like the letters S or C. Scoliosis is broken down into two categories: structural and nonstructural. Nonstructural scoliosis occurs in an otherwise healthy spine, and is typically caused by another underlying condition.
