Look for uneven hips, uneven shoulders, uneven shoulder blades, prominent rib cage sticking out, uneven
leg length, might appear clumsy or keep tripping due to being off balance, headaches, stomach aches, the
list goes on.
If in any doubt visit a specialist pediatric orthopaedic spinal consultant. They are the professionals and know
what to look for.
