Maybe/not: Scoliosis is a condition where the vertebrae that make up the spine do not form in a straight line. Like a stack of bricks on uneven mortar, the stack can drift one way or the other. This would be evident on x-ray & most cases are mild with few if any symptoms. It might be posture or poor physical conditioning. Your doc could sort it out.
