Scoliosis changes: The curve associated with scoliosis can change even after puberty but the changes occur more slowly. Ask your primary care doctor to refer you to a spine surgeon specializing in scoliosis surgery. They will likely start with conservative physical therapy to strengthen you core muscles. But it is good to get established in case the curvature of your spine changes and surgery is needed. ...Read more

Scoliosis & arthritis lower back. I'm only 20, what is some treatment as some days it's quite painful!?

Sorry to hear about: Your pain. Bracing is a viable option if your are not yet doing this. If you, core strengthening in pt can help build support along with your specific biomechanics. If your pain is facet mediated, you could have diagnostic blocks with subsequent radiofrequency ablation of nerves that could be driving the pain. See an experienced pain doc for this option.

I'v a 10 yrs. Old daughter who has an s shape congenital scoliosis more than 45*, there was no noticable progress & no pain. What are the options?

Early and often care: Although there has been no progression yet, with your daughter at age 10 and either early in puberty or not even entering puberty yet, now is the time to be very aggressive about monitoring for changes and intervening early. This is not a little 10 degree curve - she is already at 45, and you don't want much progression before you would get agressive with early therapies. See spine doctor often! ...Read more
