A 48-year-old member asked:

Why does my back feel stiff two months after a scoliosis surgery ?

Scoliosis : Because you had a long segment fusion and you also could also have muscle spasm. See if your surgeon will allow you to go to physical therapy.

Fusion: Scoliosis surgery involves straightening out your spine and then fusing it in a straighter position. By definition, this stiffens your back. Thank you for the question.
