a truly symmetrical spine does not exist!

"It is rare to find a truly symmetrical spine. In most cases the plane of the shoulders and chest is twisted relative to the plane of the pelvis, and as a result, all movements are performed most easily on one side of the body than on the other. In the early years, when a child tends to take random movements of great variety, this does not matter at all. In maturity, however, persons tend to repeat a limited number of movements--sometimes for hours on end--to the neglect of other movements. The body then tends to accustom itself to this restricted number of movements, the skeletal structure adjust to them, changes result, and posture becomes crooked."
