Scoliosis: When it comes to scoliosis, a Cobb angle of under 10 is very mild. During your peak growth velocity years after your period started, the curvatures in your spine did not progress to levels that will need surgery. Now that you are fully grown and your growth plates are fused, it should not progress much further. Visit a spine specialist if you need reassurance. Good luck. ...Read more

Is a Cobb angle of 27 degrees a mild or the start of a moderate curve?

I Prefer Cobb Salad: Quote: "Identifying Cobb angle is important since it is often the first objective indicator of a scoliosis. A curve is considered to be scoliosis at a Cobb angle of 10º or more. Any increase greater than 5º or 10º is considered a change – the number varies among studies. Scoliosis is considered mild at 10º-24º, moderate at 25º-50º and severe at >50º." [scoliosis3dc.

Does lifting weights cause your back to curve?

If you don't balance: Most people will preferentially work out the front of the body. Like chest, biceps, abdomen.

Make sure you balance this out with toning the upper and lower back muscles and stretch the pectorals to help your shoulder blades sit back. The mens olympic gymnastics team needs to work on this too! Check them out. ...Read more
