Functional scoliosis —This may be caused by muscle spasm (secondary to lumbar or thoracic injuries) or leg length discrepancy (which causes a lateral shift in the spine). Functional scoliosis resolves with healing of the lumbar or thoracic injuries or correction of the leg length discrepancy. • Structural scoliosis—This type of scoliosis is usually idiopathic.

    It is certainly possible for a slight case of scoliosis to develop this way (mild scoliosis develops in many professional athletes that play sports which focus very heavily on one-sided activities, such as tennis and golf), but in most cases of scoliosis, the muscle imbalances that exist are a result, rather than a cause, of the scoliosis. Scoliosis can also cause arthritis in the spinal joints, resulting in bone spurs. Scoliosis Symptoms. In adults, scoliosis symptoms can cause a gradual loss of function.

Nonstructural scoliosis: due to leg-length discrepancy, muscle guarding or spasm from a painful stimulus in the back or neck or habitual postures. Muscle impairments and Symptoms: Mobility impairment on the concave side of the curve.

Impaired muscle. Muscle imbalances and scoliosis go hand-in-hand. For scoliosis, exercise often aims at making tight muscles more flexible and weak muscles stronger. However, this approach is simplistic and does not take into account the complexity of the changes that occur with scoliosis.

The five King’s classifications of scoliosis were investigated over a range of Cobb angles. A biomechanical model of the spine was used to represent various scoliotic curvatures. Bilateral samples of the paraspinal muscles were obtained during surgery from 14 female scoliosis patients, at the apex of the scoliotic curve at T9–T Percutaneous muscle biopsy samples were obtained from nine female volunteers, on the left side of the spine at T The Cause of Idiopathic Scoliosis: Involuntary Muscle Contraction Scoliosis is regarded as mysterious and incurable by many people in the medical community.
