Is It Okay To Pickup Heavy Stuff While Having Scholiosi
Can scoliosis cause short dizzy spells when lifting or bending getting worse when pulling at stuff or lifting heavy stuff with neck pain?
Relatively: In the vast majority of cases of scoliosis, there is not any limitation in lifting heavy objects in and of itself. Patients with scoliosis can certainly injure their back lifting heavy objects, but not really at a higher rate than people without scoliosis in all but the most severe cases. Thank you for the question. ...Read more

I have scoliosis and my neck has been cracking a lot and hurts and ihave headaches every day is that normal? I weigh 135 lb 5'4 is that over weight?
Normal weight: Your bmi is 23.2, which falls perfectly in the normal weight category (18.5 to 25). That is excellent news and should reduce the chances that the scoliosis will cause longer-term problems. "cracking' of the neck is probably nothing to worry about if there is no pain, stiffness or other symptoms. The headaches may be completely unrelated, and could be multiple different things. Best to see an md. ...Read more
It's 3 years since I got scoliosis and during this time I almost lost half of my weight and hairs and some digestional problems as well. No doctor, but after a month of research I came to know I am not the only man with this.
What excersize would be good to lose weight if you have scoliosis of the spine and tendenitis in feet?
Studies have shown: That most weight loss is through dieting while exercise can help and is more for overall conditioning but swimming has the least overall impact or water aerobics in terms of weight bearing joints. Scoliosis would not limit the type of exercises you can do unlike the tendinitis of your feet which may be related to your weight. Heel cups and or arch support along with stretching may help the feet. ...Read more
Can weight lifting correct very mild scoliosis? My pcp suggested this. One shoulder is about 1 inch higher than the other. Exercise suggestions?
Scoliosis: It is highly unlikely that weightlifting could correct mild scoliosis at your age. The ligaments that are holding the spine in the scoliotic position are fixed in this position and this will not change from bodybuilding. If you are concerned, I would suggest that you see a scoliosis specialist for appropriate recommendations. ...Read more

Idiopathic scoliosis: Idiopathic (spontaneous without a cause) scoliosis is not a painful condition. Back pain in scoliosis is similar to that of people with a straight spine unless lumbar curves exceed 30-50 degrees and thoracic curves exceed 50-70 degrees. Curve progression occurs with aging by about. 5 degree per year. It is not likely to "compress organs" or cause breathing, heart or neurologic probs unless severe. ...Read more

I'm 16, and I was diagnosed with scholiosis when I was 12 and I have only grown and inch since then (i'm 5'1 now). Will my back get any worse?
Probably not: Adolescent scoliosis usually progresses most during rapid growth, and stabilizes when it stops. If you have only grown 1 inch in 4 years you are likely at the end of your growth and the process should be stable. An xray of your wrist and hand could be assessed for open growth centers and would suggest either more growth to come or confirm that you are done. ...Read more
Varies: Small and moderate sized curves are not usually harmful. Curvatures that progress beyond 60 degrees can begin to affect pulmonary function tests and by 90 degrees can cause clinical signs of cardiac and respiratory compromise. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
Depends: Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine in the coronal plane. The majority of cases of scoliosis are mild and do not cause symptoms and do not need treatment. Curvatures greater than 45 degrees usually relentlessly progress, and surgery is really the only cure for large curves. Thank you for your question. ...Read more
Yes: Scoliosis may be structural or idiopathic in nature. Idiopathic is easily the most common. Usually diagnosed in adolescence. It requires frequent evaluation & if curve is progressing may require bracing, exercise, and at times surgery. With structural cases it may caused by herniated discs, muscle spasm, fractures, etc. Treatment of the underlying problems will correct the scoliosis. ...Read more
See a doctor: You first need to have a specialist evaluate the size of the curve and possibly any other reasons for the curve. Then, depending on how mild or severe the curve is there are many options. Thy range from exercise and stretching, to brace wear, and if severe and progressive, surgery. ...Read more
Varies: There are two components to scoliosis treatment. One is based on the structural issues of the curve and the second is based on the symptoms a patient might have from their scoliosis. Structural treatment is based upon the age of the patient and the size of the curve. Symptomatic treatment is based upon how much trouble the person is having with their back and treatment options are multiple. ...Read more
Can be subtle: In many cases, the findings on a patient with even a large scoliosis curve can be subtle. This is in part why schools will screen for scoliosis. The most common findings are an asymmetry in the hips and pelvis, an elevation of one shoulder, and a rib hump, otherwise known as an asymmetric trunk rotation. Most adolescents have no symptoms at all unless they have really large curves. Thank you. ...Read more
Scoliosis: Scoliosis is a combined angular and rotatory malalignment of the spine. It is autosomal dominant with mixed expression, more common in females. Bracing can slow progression in very early stages. Surgery can help more severe curves that progress. Long term breathing problems are the medical issue. Cosmesis is the primary parental concern. ...Read more
