Spinal curvatures and other structural imbalances relative to scoliosis

3 types of scoliosis exist in the world of spinal disorders, functional, structural, and genetic. In functional cases the spine looks curved, because of a habitual malposition which has evolved, but actually works normally. When functional scoliosis is treated the symptoms and even the scoliosis itself can often be alleviated by chiropractic adjustment and functional re-education. In cases where structural scoliosis is present and the spine is rigid, it’s usually because of muscles and ligaments changed noticeably in length. In these cases depending on the severity of the curvature, structural scoliosis can be reversed from 50 to 80 percent. In cases involving genetic scoliosis, abnormal development of the vertebrae occurs in utero.
