In brief: It means your spine

Is curved to the right.
The scoliosis has a concave side and a convex side. If one were to look at a tire inner tube, the inside of the tube would be equivalent to the concavity and the outside would be equivalent to the convexity. The scoliosis is a rotational or twisting deformity of the spine leading to the appearance of a bending to the side just like coiling or twisting a rope hanging.
