What is dextroscoliosis of the thoracic spine?

Scoliosis

This means a right-sided curvature in the spine. Looking from the back, the main curve would be to the right (but other there are 'correcting' curves above and below to the left to help you stay upright). This type of right sided sciolosis is the most common form, esp. in young patients... the degree is important to know to advise you better... good luck!

THere are more than 50 genetic foci that have been combined into a scoliosis test to determine whether a curve will progress or not.

Hi Doc., What should I do to cure dextroscoliosis thoracic spine?

Only if scoliosis is

Open-uri20130319-27108-1pdxemc
flexible & due to another reason that is forcing the spine to bend, ie spasm being generated by another issue like a kidney stone. If it is a type of scoliosis known as congenital or idiopathic, the answer is surgery if indicated but curve may not be fully corrected. Bracing for idiopathic scoliosis during growth may control curve progression and if curve over 50 degrees in adult then surgery

Scoliosis on regular Xray might be due to position of your body. Please get a physical examination. Answering your Q, it depends on the type of job you are applying, but generally it is not important.

You may have this. I would see a pm&r spine specialist to further evaluate your options for treatment. With asymmetry in legs, you may need a shoe insert/orthotic to address the leg length discrepancy.

Please suggest some upper back strengthening excercises in order to relieve pain occuring intermittently; have mild dextroscoliosis of thoracic spine.?

Consult PT first

Chest
A consultation with a physical therapist is the best way to learn exercises. After evaluation, the PT and you plan a program. Besides handouts, the PT will watch you perform exercises to be sure you do them correctly. "Treat Your Own Back" by Robin MacKenzie is a very good resource, however, go to a certified MacKenzie physical therapist and clinic before starting to be safe.

If mild don't worry

Open-uri20121217-30583-9g0qpc
Mild scoliosis does not need any specific treatment. In terms of the upper back pain occasionally , try some core strengthening exercises including Yoga or Pilates or taking short breaks to avoid a a continuous load or stress on your back. All exercise if done regularly helps.

I’m 27 F recently diagnosed with mild dextroscoliosis of thoracic spine,have back pain somtimes.Is it related?Any exercise to follow?If so,pls suggest

Usually unrelated

Upper_back_pain
Scoliosis, usually mild is extremely common in females, usually developing by the teens. In the vast majority of cases, the scoliosis is not symptomatic. IIf you have lower back pain, it is almost certainly unrelated. For an personalized exercise program get it from a physical therapist.
