Hi,

Dextroscoliosis  pertains to the curvature of the spine with convexity on the right side, which leads to unequal weight or pressure on the next vertebra or bone. Because of this, pelvic instability is considered, especially with your mother's age. This usually presents with pain that usually responds to over-the-counter medications. Have this evaluated further by your doctor for proper management. Take care and regards.
