Abnormal curvature of the spine is looked at as a deformity or disorder. There are three main types of spinal curvature.
· Scoliosis: The most common type of spinal curvature. It is viewed as excessive sideways curvature of the spinal column.
· Kyphosis: This type is described as an excessive outward curvature of the back resulting in a hunchback.
· Lordosis: This is characterized as a forward curvature of the spine most commonly in the lumbar section of the spinal column.

After a few sessions the spine is restored to its natural alignment.

Many believe that when the spine is properly positions it allows the body to have the ability to heal on its own and increases the ability of the immune systems leading to a high chance or prevention against diseases.
