This musculoskeletal disorder often leads to other issues in patients, such as under-ventilation of lungs, pulmonary hypertension, difficulty in performing the day to day activities, psychological issues emanating from fear of acceptance among peers, especially in young patients.. It can also be seen in syringomyelia, Friedreich's ataxia and Duchenne muscular dystrophy due to asymmetric weakening of the paraspinal muscles.
