What is dextroscoliosis?

I am wondering if it is the same as scoliosis.


Answer by  Kit (558)

In Scoliosis is a condition where a human's spine is curved from side to side, though Dextro-(Right-Latin) Scoliosis, the curvature is larger on the right side of the spine cord


Answer by  cady (194)

Dextroscoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves markedly to the right. Its opposite is levoscoliosis, in which the spine curves left. Both fall under the umbrella of scoliosis.
