When the spine of a person gets tilted in the shape of ‘c’ or‘s’, it is called as scoliosis. It is a type of postural disformity. Doctors have not been able to detect the actual cause of scoliosis, but possible reasons can be, due to genetic factors or environmental factors such as unsuitable temperature, sitting and standing posture. It might also occur due to muscle spasm, tumor, prolonged lower back pain, injury in the pelvic area. At the early stages, the pain is not seen and the postural deformity at the beginning is not so noticeable. But, in the later stages, it may make your back contorted. It adversely affects the pelvic region.
For about 3% of the population is triggered by scoliosis and of which the majority of it is females.
