Are there good stomach-toning exercises that I easily can do? I have extreme scoliosis and lordosis.

Yes: There are many, many toning exercises for the abdominal region. All of them require effort to do well, so i don't know that the word "easily" really applies. Your back problems will limit motion. Look for exercises, like pilates for example, that use only a slight range of motion but still manage to provide significant toning. And be careful; if it hurts, ease up a bit. Don't over do. ...Read more

I seem to have like a really curved back. If i also have scoliosis, is it any more or less likely that i will have excessive lordosis?

Where?: In adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, loss of normal thoracic kyphosis is typical. However, in some patients with a kyphoscoliosis, this must be compensated with increased lumbar lordosis. So either may occur in an attempt to balance the head over the center of the hips/pelvis on the frontal and side views. This is the body's normal compensation for spinal deformity. ...Read more

W/ bone dysplasia(scoliosis, lordosis, hip).Had correctional surgeries in the 80's.3m spine support and custom insole can help w/ joint and back pain?

Possibly: In my opinion, treatments such as a spine support and custom insole fall into the category of "won't hurt to try." there is no way to predict which patients such treatments will help. I would certainly also recommend active treatments including regular activity and exercises as well as range of motion and strengthening. ...Read more
