Curved Spine And Prolonged Sitting Does It Cause Back Pain
37 year old has scoliosis, lumbar lordosis and curved spine, and was born with hip dysplasia.Had several surgeries. Now has joint and back pain walkin?
Sometimes: In my clinical experience, prolonged sitting, even w/ normal spine can result in taught muscles, flexed vertebrae & injured/inflamed nerves.Injured ligaments also allow abnormal spine motion/hyperflexion during sitting, resulting in pain.Abnormal curves make the spine/muscles/nerves even more susceptible to such irritation.Osteopathic diagnosis, manipulation, prolo/neuroprolotherapy, etc. may help ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My 60 yo daddy complains of lower back pain but refused to go see doc; should I be worried? He says pain comes after prolonged sitting
I have begun to have pain in the buttocks with prolonged sitting, started about six weeks back, I don't have back pain, there is no numbness in the legs and the pain does not radiate to the legs.
Pelvic source pain: In an otherwise healthy 50 yo, the most common cause is a spasm in ,the piriformis muscle, which lies over the sciatic nerve. It can be irritated with a wallet on the same side, sacral sitting ( sliding buttock forward when seated) or direct trauma. Another common cause is sacro iliac irritation. Chiropractic, or PMR docs can evaluate this. X rays or MRI won't show it. ...Read more
Positional load: Sitting places 4 times body weight load across your lower back while being in a car causes an additional vibrational stress (cars & human spines vibrate at the same harmonic frequency about 5 hertz). Prolonged positioning also adds increased load. Getting up periodically if it can be done can help as can a small lumbar roll support. Also seat adjustments can help such as a high back & armrests. ...Read more
Could you tell me what is the most effective pain relief for back ache caused by curved spine or worn discs?
RFA, PT, NSAIDs: Curved spine (scoliosis) and "worn discs" are extremely common in people that have no pain at all, so both of those things aren't necessarily the causes of pain. Both though, can cause pain by putting pressure on the joints in the back. A thorough evaluation by a spine specialist should be able to tell you what is causing the pain (the joints, the discs, the muscles/ligaments, etc). ...Read more
It varies: In my experience, for two reasons. First, a spinal deformity can cause a muscular pain as the muscles try to hold the spine in a good position but battle a mechanical disadvantage. Second, the spine is loaded in an asymmetric fashion leading to early failure fo the discs leading to premature degeneration, herniations, and arthritis, all of which can certainly cause pain.
