So, if hip abductor group on one side is tighter at baseline tone than the hip adductor group on that side, the pelvis will be pulled into depression on that side, resulting in a lumbar scoliosis that is convex on that side. Similarly, tight opposite-side hip adductor musculature can cause the same scoliotic curve.
The following is a brief overview that links the low back condition with its corresponding assessment procedure and its corresponding treatment.
The spine is an incredible structure, with both great stability but also tremendous mobility in all three cardinal planes.
Scoliosis is a lateral flexion deformity of the spine. The spine should have curves in the sagittal plane, but a frontal plane curve is a scoliosis.
