Signs of scoliosis?

The most common. Symptom of scoliosis is an abnormal curve of the spine. Often this is a mild change and may be first noticed by a friend or family member. Those affected may notice that their clothes do not fit as they did previously or that pant legs are longer on one side that the other. Scoliosis may cause the head to appear off center or one hip or shoulder to be higher than the opposite side.
Complex system. The nervous system contains two main categories or types of cells: neurons and glial cells.
Many diseases. Pupils are holes in the center of the iris. They normally change their size according to the light. If light is bright they will reduce in size and in the case of insufficient light, both of them will enlarge. This is a reflex and simply cannot be controlled. Medications, head injury, horner syndrome (tumor in the brain), eye drops use.And many others.
Back asymmetric . Lean forward and touch toes ( legs straight). Examiner standing behind you will notice a " hump" on one side of upper back.
SCOLIOSIS. The thoracolumbar spine has curvature either to the right or left like s- shape so the posture of the person is irregular or not straight.
Can be subtle. In many cases, the findings on a patient with even a large scoliosis curve can be subtle. This is in part why schools will screen for scoliosis. The most common findings are an asymmetry in the hips and pelvis, an elevation of one shoulder, and a rib hump, otherwise known as an asymmetric trunk rotation. Thank you for your question.

Maybe-tho likely not. A curved spine can go right/left or can be rotational (in other words, the curve comes from vertebrae - spinal bones - twisting slightly). Classic "knots" are typically from spasm of muscles along the spine, but such spasms could be brought on by scoliosis or spinal misaligment. Some people have misinterpreted "bumps" from spinla curves as "knots". Best to have it checked...And simple. Read more...
