I have minor scoliosis, the curve moves my neck to the side. Can I straighten my neck somehow to cause it to have less of a lean? Thanks
Varies: You can ultimately work on your range of motion and flexibility of the area with physical therapy and stretching.

Don't hesitate to be seen and examined directly to discuss further treatment options. ...Read more
Any type: Congenital with abnormal vertebral shape is a definite possibility. Otherwise, idiopathic is most likely. Various curve configurations may give differing appearance to the spine.

Compensation: Your spine and really your body will compensate for scoliosis so that you try your best to stand appropriately and to balance the weight of your body. Moreover, if you have only moderate scoliosis your body could easily accommodate your scoliosis such that your sagittal alignment is actually normal. The sagittal alignment is the line that connects your head to your pelvis. ...Read more

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

Yes: The muscles are tight as they try to correct the "kink" in your spine. Pain usually gets better after you strengthen these same muscles. Good exercises for that are symmetrical isometric activities - swimming, rowing/rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, yoga. Once the muscles are stronger, the asymmetry in the spine may improve or stabilize. ...Read more
