I felt like sharing, so here goes... Just found out that a slight scoliosis has been causing a majority of my back pain. Anyways, I will be doing physical therapy now, which is good because it gives me a reason to go to the gym. It's the silver lining in the cloud I guess. I have a feeling I'm going to be feeling a lot better about my body image in the coming months and hopefully gain enough confidence to wear a bikini. I'm not sure I'll ever get over my stretch marks though. :(
any recommendations for scoliosis relief? i can't afford the braces my doctor offered or surgery, and the pain is starting to take a toll on me.
hi got diagnosed with mild scoliosis around February last year. I have a feeling that I have had it since I've been about 15 though as always had back problems. how I found out I had scoliosis was I had a fall at work and had to have an x-ray to make sure I had not broken my back or damaged it by the fall .I am looking at getting advice from people in a similar situation to me
Has anyone tried going to a chiropractor for scoliosis? Mine isn't bad enough for surgery but it's probably not going to get better since it's a result of one of my legs being shorter than the other (I've already had surgery to even it out but the spine is still slightly curved). I struggle with the discomfort of it but I've heard going to the chiropractor every few months can help a lot.
Does anyone here have scoliosis not severe enough for surgery but still experience chronic back pain? What do y’all recommend for dealing with this?
I’m really struggling with pain right now. I sleep further extending my back the way it’s not supposed to go because it’s the most comfortable but obviously wake up having pissed off my nerves. I’ve taken my strongest pain meds, stretched and tried laying with my legs elevated for a few hours but this pain is only getting worse. Does anyone have any suggestions/ support? Thank you!!
hi. i was wondering if it’s normal to have constant back pain after having spinal fusion surgery. my back and shoulders get very sore very easily. i have back spasms and sometimes it feels like something is stabbing me. parts of my back are also still numb from the surgery. for background, i was diagnosed with scoliosis when i was around 10 i think. i was able to continue dancing and doing everything i normally did. at 16 i was told that my spine continued to curve and i needed surgery if i didn’t want problems in the future. i was very upset but i thought it was for the best. now i have constant pain and i just want to know if it’s normal and what other people may do to help the pain post-surgery.
who else lives with constant back pain after spine surgery? and does anything help? I take ibuprofen or anything else that can kill the pain, but it doesn't take away the pain entirely. any suggestions?
How do y'all feel about the possibility of surgery for scoliosis?
how can i treat my scoliosis? And if so how much is it to get my surgery done?
is there anything I can take for the pain??
can scoliosis cause issues with your legs??
What pain treatment methods work best for you? Went to the ER today because I’d been having chronic back pain for about a month. It just has been worsening to the point where today I couldn’t stand the pain any longer and went in for an X-Ray. They said that my spine has an S curve and that my back muscles are strained from overuse and compensating for the misaligned spine. I’m experiencing the pain on all parts of my back, neck, and shoulders. It’s spreading to the back of my head where it meets my neck, as well as my hips. I’ve been taking ibuprofen today and that’s helped lessen the pain a little bit, but I am still in a lot of pain. I am also confused because my chiropractor told me that I should only ice my back and that heat will cause inflammation, however the nurse at the ER told me I should heat it.
Hello to all. I'm almost 60, & I've had Spina bifida since birth 59 now, & I have scoliosis too. I work in customer service retail, I feel like my job should accommodate by allowing me to sit on low chair, to stock shelves, instead of bending over MORE. & To have access to aleast a stool, whenever my back needs a rest, at the register! Am I asking to much??
