I have a herniated c5-6 disc, how common is this, how can it be treated, and can it become fatal if not treated properly?

Can mild scoliosis be cured completely? I've been told I have scoliosis, but it's not severe. Will treatment cure the problem completely, or will i always have some curvature? .

Can mild scoliosis be cured completely? I've been told I have scoliosis, but it's not severe. Will treatment cure the problem completely, or will i always have some curvature?

.

But the reason all that is ok is because mild curves are not really usually associated with problems. Even the incidence of back pain is similar in someone with a mild curve as it is in someone with a straight spine. Thanks. ...Read more
