Scoliosis: Unless your curve is severe (50-70° or more), your pain is probably typical mechanical or muscular. Degenerative is certainly another source. Scoliosis patients are no more likely than those with straight spines to have pain. I would recommend pilates/piyo/yoga for core strength. If that fails, then potentially seeing a mckenzie certified pt would be best. This would require a doc's rx. ...Read more

There are several : Reasons why: could be just post op pain which resolves once tissues healed & the fusion as well. If the fusion does not fully heal, there can be pain related to that issue. If a fusion extends below L3 but not to the sacrum, there is a higher incidence of back pain later due to accelerated degenerative changes in the non fused disc levels.

Maybe: It is not uncommon to have some persistent pain after a major spinal operation, and maximal improvement can come more than a year postop. A concern, however, would be if the bones do not grow (i.e. Fuse) together, which is usually a goal of scoliosis surgery. For that reason, you should be evaluated by your surgeon to see if this potential complication is occurring. ...Read more

Slight curve?: Do you mean the slight curve that everybody has, the normal cervical lordosis? Lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis, "adjustment" is pure chiropractic quackery. In your young healthy neck, everything's held tightly in place by discs, muscles & ligaments. It can't get OUT of adjustment. Be skeptical. Arm yourself with real knowledge.

I had surgery for scoliosis when i was younger. Now I have back pain that interferes with how i go about my daily life. How can I manage the pain?
Water exercise: Whenever we perform surgery for correction of the curvature of the spine, there can be unintended changes with aging that put stress(which results in pain) on the spine and its supporting elements. Since the surgery is largely irreversible, the next best approach is to address the support elements, i.e. The muscles and ligaments and our posture, to see what that adds to the relief. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
