Non-structural scoliosis: abnormal spinal curvatures that have sufficient mobility, and can therefore resolve with postural change. There is a multitude of research regarding structural and idiopathic scoliosis, but very minimal literature about non-structural (functional) scoliosis and more importantly, how to treat it. The purpose of this case report was to examine the use of stretching, strengthening, and postural reeducation for a patient who presented with a non-structural scoliosis.
