How common is scoliosis?

Here some numbers about scoliosis
Can a bad posture created scoliosis?
It can certainly. I constantly remind and say to my daughter” To stand straight, otherwise she would become like the hunchback of Notre Dame”. The effect was short-lived as it seemed impossible for her to keep this position for less than a minute … Tiring, uncomfortable, she is fighting with her own body to command a movement it is no longer able to do … sit or stand up straight. In search of ease, she gives up and adopts the position imposed by her body, she got tired of fighting. Too much to care of.
How could you tell if you have scoliosis?
Here are some suggestions to help you know if you have scoliosis symptoms:
One leg shorter than the other
Standing on your legs, observe how you stand, in other words how the weight of the body is spread on your two legs. Also, also, how are your feet positioned relative to your hips. You put the weight of your body more on one leg than the other can promote scoliosis.
Difficulty sitting straight
Sit on a hard, flat bench with your feet on the ground, your back as straight as possible for 3 minutes. You will discover how much your body has difficulty keeping this position. Do you cross your legs? or are you looking for your back to something? and still feel the weight of your body more present on one of the sit bone. All these observations indicate a imbalance in the body.
