Detect Scoliosis by Yourself


Spinal curves are measured in Cobb angles, which can be seen from X-rays. Scoliosis can mostly be noticed from childhood to teenage years with the following symptoms.

  • Uneven shoulders, with one of shoulder blades being higher than the other.
  • Uneven chest, or uneven breasts in female patients or uneven level of nipples in male patients.
  • Uneven hips or body leaning on one of the sides.
  • Bent spinal cord or noticeably out of the alignment.
  • Bulging bone at the back which becomes more distinct when bent forward.

If experience any of these symptoms, consult with a doctor for a diagnosis and make a treatment plan to prevent the spinal cord from deviating further to the extent where complications develop.
