Scoliosis is caused by musculoskeletal misalignment. It often manifests in teenagers who change suddenly from being active to sedentary, or the opposite, from being sedentary to suddenly active. These abrupt transitions that occur during big growth spurts create drastic modifications of the demand placed on the musculoskeletal system. Various functions - some newly strengthened, some weakening from disuse - are creating imbalanced pulls on the skeletal structure and causes the spine to begin to curve laterally and twist.
Whether your scoliosis developed when you were a teenager, or later in life, it can be treated with a program of balanced muscular stimulation. A directed posture therapy program reminds the body that it is bilateral, placing demands on both sides to re-educate the muscles and restore proper design function.
Unless you are still a teenager, it won't be a quick fix. But you can make a lot of progress and restore your health at the same time.
