Scoliosis Pictures Photos Scoliosis Picture Scoliosis Pictures In Adults by Chiropractor in Vaughan
So in my previous video, I talked to you about
what scoliosis is and I even showed you what scoliosis looks like on a spine model. So
in this video I want to show you some pictures of scoliosis, some scoliosis pictures on x
rays so you actually visually see what it looks like on an xray.
Helping you relieve pain, conquer stress, and supercharge your health the chiropractic
way. Hi, my name is Dr Walters Salubro. I’m a chiropractor
in Vaughan. Welcome to this video. I’m going to show you a couple of xray pictures to show
you what scoliosis looks like on an xray image. And if you’re new to my channel, be sure to

Now remember the spine should be straight. That’s our normal model. When we look at it
from the front or you look at it from the back, the spine should always be straight.
I like to use the analogy of an arrow. So this is like an arrow. Nice straight stick.
That’s the way the spine should be right down the center. Now if you look at these pictures,
here is two xray pictures of the spine. These are two different people. So the bottom picture
here, this is an example of a scoliosis in the lower spine area, the lumbar spine. Now,
before I talk about the pictures, remember there’s two types of curvatures. There’s an
S shape type curvature, and then there’s a C shape type curvature. The S shape is more
complex because there’s a main curve plus a compensating curve. It’s more complex to
handle and help correct and manage. A C shape curve is less complicated and easily, and
has a bit more chance of maintaining or also correcting.
So here’s a picture of the lower lumbar scoliosis curve. So if I put this reference line right
down the center of the film, bisecting the sacrum room as my, as my benchmark area, you
can see how the spine is laterally bending. So in this person’s case R, represents the
right side of the body. So this person has a right convex scoliosis. So that means that
the lateral curve of this person scoliosis is to the right. Interesting thing about this
one. If you look closely, if you can tell from the picture, not only is the spine bending,
so not only is it bending like this, but it’s also bending and rotating. So the actual vertebrae
are bending and rotating. Right. So remember we said in the previous video and if you follow
the card up here, you’ll see that I have a video on scoliosis defined or how scoliosis
is explained, check that out. But a scoliosis is a three dimensional deformity,
which means that not only is the spine bending to the side, but there’s also a rotation.
So if you look at it from the top, it looks like the spine is spiraling, spiraling. So
this is a three dimensional deformity which can cause a tremendous amount of discomfort,
stress on the joints, tension on the ligaments, tension on the nerves. No only can it cause
local pain, but if it progresses and most cases in without intervention, can eventually
lead to organ system problems like heart complications, if it’s higher up in the rib cage, compressing
the lungs and just cause a whole bunch of organ system problems as well. Now, this top
picture up here, this is more of a C shape lateral curve or scoliosis of the spine. Obviously
this is a smaller individual, so as an infant or a child and you can see that if I draw
my reference point that the spine is crooked to the side and in this case it’s more of
a lateral curve and no rotation, so less complicated of a scoliosis to handle and help manage.
So more of a C shaped curve with no rotation. So there you have it. There’s a couple of
picture examples of what a scoliosis looks like on an xray. If you have scoliosis, I
want to hear about it. Leave it, leave a comment below to tell me about your scoliosis experience
and what you’ve done to help manage it. If you have any questions, leave in the comments
below. I do my best to answer questions. We do help people with scoliosis in our office.
We have corrective care protocols for that. I will make another video about the corrective
care protocols that we can help to at least stabilize the spine and scoliosis and possibly
make some changes or improvements. And if you liked this video, leave me some thumbs
