How do you properly foam roll quadriceps without arching the back?

Hey guys.
Is it really bad to foam roll quads the way this guy is doing in the video above? I only foam roll my quads for about 1 minute, 3 times a week but for some reason my technique is exactly like his even though I have my abs tightened. When I roll the foam roller upwards, I can have my back kinda straight but I have trouble rolling the roller downwards my quads and keeping my back straight for some reason.
 
Keep in mind that I have mild scoliosis which means I have more of an arch in my back than usual which is probably another reason why my back has a hard time being straight when rolling my quads. 
 
I just read that if I foam roll the same way in the video above, it could push my pelvis out. There are alot of opinions on the internet so I do not know how true this might be. Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

    If your abs are strong it shouldn't be an issue. If they're weak, strengthen them.

    Until then, use the end of an Olympic bar to roll over them. It's more effective anyway.
