Could scoliosis cause mild to severe back pain and severe tension headaches?

Could scoliosis cause mild to severe back pain and severe tension headaches?

Yes: It can, if coupled with c-spine or thoracic abnormalities, contribute to uncontrollable repetitive movements. You need to be seen by a good Neurosurgeon who can evaluate your cervical thoracic and lumbar spine. I suspect there will be other findings beyond the scoliosis.

The next step would be a retin a (tretinoin) product if you are not happy within the month with your improvement. We can prescribe through a Prime Visit. ...Read more
