I have been told that I have scoliosis since I was in the 8th grade. I never was put in a brace. I was put in gymnastics instead which was to help me to improve my posture. I saw chiropracters for a long time when the pain would get bad. I have never been told that i needed surgery or seen anyone about the surgery. I am now 42 and i have pain in every sector of my spine. I know that i have two or three curves and that the curve in my neck is now gone.
I have many medical issues but often wonder if they are somehow related to degenerative changes due to the Scoliosis.
Where do I go to assure that Scoliosis is not one of the main causes of my back, neck and hip pain?
Just wondering if any of you have kept track of your height with having DDD. I have 2 1/2 inches in height in the last year, which is a little frightening. I take extra calicum and have totally cut out caffine. I don't know what else to do. I have went from 5 feet 10 1/2 inches to 5'8". Anyone else keeping track? Blessings...missourigal
