Back Problem?

Today while I was doing hang cleans I noticed in the mirror that my back curves strrongly on the clean motion. (It straightens back out to normal on the catch.)
Its my right side, and it curves in words heavily. Kind of like a "C".

First off, I'll point out that I'm right side dominant. This could explain the curvature, but I wanted a second opinion on this. And I know it can't be because of my posture, because I make it a point to stand upright all day (makes my stomach look tighter lol).

I've been checked for scoliosis multiple times growing up and have never shown any signs of it. Right now I'm a little worried that maybe I slipped passed the nurses on this one. What do you think the problem could be?

Re: Back Problem?

I think you should discuss this with a chiropractor.

Re: Back Problem?

I would if I could, but I don't exactly have one readily available...
Being military, over seas and on an independent duty billet, its real difficult to get some medical related treatments/consultations.

Re: Back Problem?

it cant be that bad if the military let you in. I thought scoliosis was an automatic disqualification for service?
