Hard to say: Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine and is not usually used to describe any other part of the body. So to say scoliosis of the upper limbs is not a common way to describe any deformity of the arms. All that being said, it may have been someone's attempt to describe a curvature of the arms, or you may not have understood what was said. Thank you for the question. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If the pain has been present for over 6 weeks or is severe and waking you at night or if there are any other concerns then you should see a physician. ...Read more

Scoliosis : Mild scoliosis, min subluxation may not mean anything depending on actual numbers. Many people can have very small spinal asymmetry. Reversal of lordosis may be a sign of spasm. Either way i think you are getting the idea that one would need to see the actual films. An even more important question is why you got the films in the first place: your symptoms and your neuro exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
