A 25-year-old male asked:

Low back pain: Back pain can result from a multitude of factors, but is commonly related to disorders of the intervertebral disc. Premature degeneration of the disc can, in fact, be related to repetitive and/or excessive loads (e.g., weight) placed upon the disc. Weight loss, aerobic conditioning, and core strengthening can all help mitigate the risk of pathologic disc disorders. Lean and mean is the way to go.

Scoliosis treatment: Levoscoliosis implies that you have a curvature of your spine that points to your left. The l5-s1 disc is often associated with a compensatory fractional curve. Typically, treatment tends to be conservative - pt, medications, and on occasion, spinal injections. Bracing is typically reserved for children with scoliosis who are still growing. Surgery is reserved for only severe cases of scoliosis.

Altitude sickness: The risk of altitude sickness typically increases with the rate of ascension and elevation height. That is, the higher and faster one climbs, the worse the altitude sickness can become. The best exercise is altitude acclimatization and training in sequentially higher altitudes. Adequate hydration, avoidance of strenuous exercises, and certain meds can also help. Good luck and happy climbing!
