Levoscoliosis Of The Thoracic Spine
I am a 46 year old female. What causes levoscoliosis of the thoracic spine with associated degenerative changes?
Scoliosis: Scoliosis is a descriptive term meaning curvature of the spine. Some people have it as a youth and it can progress as you age. The most common cause in your is idiopathic, we don't know. As we age and develope degenerative changes we can also develop curving. Great informative web site: www.Isoliosis.Com. Explains process, amounts, causes , and treatments.See 1 more doctor answer

My eight year old was today diagnois with mild levoscoliosis thoracic spine what does this mean can it be corrected?
Basic label: The term just means the spine curves a small amount to the left and the apparent center of the curve is at the mid chest.It could happen from something as simple as a kid having a bit of chest pain with a respiratory illness and assuming a position of comfort (called splinting).It could be an early sign of a worisome spine issue. At this age, you should followup with repeat x-rays in 3 monthsSee 2 more doctor answers

Chest pain for 6 days. ER said Costochondritis. Primary care follow xray levoscoliosis thoracic spine 20 degrees. Could this be because of the scolio?
No: The xray finding is probably an incidental finding.
Depends of symptoms: Depending on your symptoms, anything from bracing to surgery might be appropriate (or even nothing at all if you are not having significant issues). Would suggest evaluation from an orthopedic surgeon to outline best treatment options for you.

Mid back and rib cage pain. Flares up with wearing bra, certain movement. Had Shingles in July. Also have scoliosis. Is this thoracic spine or nerves?
Nerve pain: After a shingles outbreak, it can be very common to develop something called Post-herpetic neuralgia which is nerve pain after shingles. It can take several months to resolve and can be very painful and limiting of your activities. Try to avoid anything that causes an increase in your pain, including use of a bra. Once this syndrome resolves you can go back to normal activities.
I have bone spurs on my spine, moderate scoliosis, thoracic spine, kyphosis, osteoporis and osteoarthritis. I have continued back pain , pain in my hip?
Scoliosis back pain: There are many causes for back and hip pain, sometimes not as obvious as the curve in your spine on x-ray. Get a good evaluation 2 see if your spine is truly the problem causing the pain. Often, buttock-type hip pain comes from l4-s1, but groin hip pain comes from the hip joint itself and has nothing to do with the spine, even if the pictures look bad. Good docs can find ur true pain source. Thx!See 1 more doctor answer
Thoracic Spine: Pain at the level of the bra-strap is a very common pain location in middle aged (sorry...) women... We have a hard time determining the cause usually, but poor posture is a common reason. Otherwise, the cervical spine can radiate pain down to that area and deserves a workup. Injections in the T-spine facet joints may help. Good luck!... avoid rushing into surgery for this.
Spinal cyst: Spinal cyst is a collection of cerebrospinal fluid and it can be characterized as either extradural (outside the dura) or intradural (inside the dura). Most of the spinal cysts are idiopathic, but they can be developed from congenital defect; arachnoid adhesion secondary to infection; trauma from lumbar puncture; or iatrogenic cause from injected contrast dye.See 1 more doctor answer
Incorrect term: The epiphysis refers to the area of bones above the growth plate and closer to the end of the bone. An apohysitis refers to an inflammation and injury of the growth plate. Apophysitis in the thoracic spine would be a condition in children with open growth plates (still growing.) it would involve an injury to the growth plate.
Depends: Recovery from thoracic spine surgery varies upon the type of surgery. With lesser invasive techniques, anterior surgeries can be associated with short hospital stays. More traditional anterior and/or posterior procedures may involve longer hospitalization and recovery periods.See 1 more doctor answer
Thoracic spine: This may be caused from a pinched nerve in the t spine which may cause burning pain. Or, it may also be unrelated to the spine. A thorough work up, including exam, imaging and review of your entire history is critical to get down to the bottom of the root cause. You should speak to your regular doc first - he/she should begin the work up. A disc herniation pinching the nerve should be ruled out.
Syrinx: A syrinx generally results from an area of prior trauma or at a site in which the normal flow of spinal fluid is altered. If you do not have spinal cord symptoms and have nerve pain, a concern would be for a disc herniation. Review of your MRI scan would be needed to answer your question.See 1 more doctor answer
This should be answ-: Ered by your spinal surgeon, who knows you and your condition. Anyone else giving you options might not be the right thing to do, for you, except confusing the issue further. Google it and you'll get all options, but what's best for you, has to be from your surgeon, and no one else. Good luck.
