Hi chinnie!

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side, and may also be rotated. In your case, Dextroscoliosis is a scoliosis with the curvature of the spinal column on the right side. Scoliosis can be classified as congenital (caused by vertebral anomalies present at birth), idiopathic (sub-classified as infantile, juvenile, adolescent, or adult according to when onset occurred) or as having developed as a secondary symptom of another condition.
You can read more about this on this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoliosis

How it affects your work depends on the degree of the curvature of the spinal column. Is this indicated in the x-ray result? This is important to evaluate if you can do specific work. Do you feel any pain or limitations in your day to day activity?

Medical management of scoliosis is determined by the severity of the curvature.  Usually, observation, back bracing and surgery are options depending on the severity.

I hope this helps.  Keep me posted and take care.
