Curves in the Spine?!
Wait a second, I thought the spine was supposed to be straight!
And a curved spine is called a scoliosis, right?
You see, on the front view, when looking at the spine from the front (or back for that matter), it should be totally straight up and down. That is the healthiest , most balanced position for the spine. A curve on this plane is sometimes referred to as a “scoliosis”, not to be confused with a “postural distortion”, but we will cover that in a separate article.
On the side view, the healthiest of spines have the THREE VITAL curves!! One in the neck, one in the midback, and one in the low back. Find out why these “sagittal curves” are so CRUCIAL for your health.
