Can a highblood person take a massage? Experiencing back pain in the morning.. She has thoracic dextroscoliosis 9dgree what can do for it? Massage?

Yes: This should not cause any adverse effects on blood pressure and can help with the pain. Not so concerned about the curve in the spine. It is not large and many with scoliosis live a full life without even knowing they have it. Morning stiffness is more suggestive of arthritis. There are some rheumatoid conditions that cause spine stiffness and pain. Have them discuss it with their doc. ...Read more

I had an X-ray for middle back pain. It came back with dextroconvexity of the thoracic spine. What does this mean and could it be the cause?

Thoracic scoliosis: Detroconvexity implies that the apex of the curvature of your spine points to your right side. In the thoracic spine, it's the most common variety. Although pain can arise from adult idiopathic thoracic scoliosis, most patients are asymptomatic. Unless you have documented progression of the curve and/or neurologic dysfunction, most are treated conservatively. I would recommend a formal evaluation. ...Read more

Your history of : Scoliosis may have no bearing on low back pain unless there is another condtion that has a slightly higher prevalence in patients with scoliosis known as spondylolysis & spondylolithesis. Sometimes, there is a compensatory or balancing curve in the lower back that may alter the mechanics in that region leaing to back pain. See an orthopedic surgeon for an evaluation.

Unknown: Mild levoscoliosis can be caused simply by the posture you have adapted to deal with your discomfort. It may have no direct input to the pain.

Acute severe back pain in thoracic spine. Does not feel muscular. Worse when sitting or lying down. Could this be cancer? The pain is a burning nature

Very unlikely: Back pain is an uncommon presentation of cancer, and a common presenting symptom of many benign conditions, some of which are not cancerous but are still serious. If it is a new pain that you have never had before, and is severe, you should definitely see a doctor. It could be an unusual presentation of heart disease... Or just a pulled muscle. ...Read more
