non-stuctural (functional) scoliosis assessment

In a recent lecture on assessment for non-structural (functional) scoliosis the professor contradicted our text stating that a non-structural scoliosis can be identified if the the curve corrects during a lateral bend away from the apex of the curve (the text stated a non-structural scoliosis can be identified if the curve corrects during a lateral bend towards the apex of the curve). This has caused confusion within the class and we are looking for input from other physical therapists.
