A member asked:

Does scoliosis causes stiffness when opening the chest or rotating the chest?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes: Scoliosis, an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine can significantly limit rib movement. Occasionally, this can be severe enough to impair breathing. More often, however, people describe the sensation your feeling of tightness or stiffness of the chest with rotation. In some mild/moderate cases, osteopaths, pts, or chiropractors may be able to work on reducing the scoliosis and pain.
