Just calm down, it won't do any good to be all stressed about it. Because stress itself is a killer!! My best guess would be to go to mednow because that is a really good website, the way they explain it to you...its really helpful. I know what it is, but I can't really think of it!! E-mail me your e-mail [email protected] and I'll find out for you...how to expain it to ya...I wanna help ;-) If you want me to help...I'll be glad!! Thanks!! PS. I'll read about it in my health book!! But for now, don't stress out!!

Everyone's spine has natural curves. These curves round our shoulders and make our lower back curve slightly inward. But some people have spines that also curve from side to side. Unlike poor posture, these curves can't be corrected simply by learning to stand up straight.
This condition of side-to-side spinal curves is called scoliosis. On an X-ray, the spine of an individual with scoliosis looks more like an "S" or a "C" than a straight line. Some of the bones in a scoliotic spine also may have rotated slightly, making the person's waist or shoulders appear uneven.


monica your new bff
dont be scared, its a curvature of the spine, many people have it and you could never even notice, definetly see your doctor and get treatment, but you will be fine you wont look awful.

curved spine. chiropracters can diagnose anyone with scoliosis and make it stick.


familyguy
Simply, it's an abnormal curvature of the spine. Most literatures cite it as lateral curvature..but that's just 2-D artifact on a plain film. In reality, it's a 3-dimentional curvature with rotation..much like helical structure of DNA.

It's really not easy to give you a straight answer on how it's treated as there are many different kinds of scoliosis.

The most common one, idiopathic scoliosis(80%), is treated with bracing and surgery if severe enough.

Posturer scoliosis can be addressed with good rehab program.

Neuromuscular disease caused scoliosis usually requires surgery.

As far as aesthetic aspect goes, usually, below 20 degrees isn't very noticeable under clothing. But once you progress on from that, depending on types of curvature you have (there are many classifications) one may be more noticeable than the other. Check out www.myscoliosis.net pretty good treatment for scoliosis..

Curvature of the spine. It depends on how bad it is. You may have to wear a brace or a corset type thing. You need to have it corrected or it could get worse and cause back pain later in life.


sweetnlovenkindagurl
ur doctor should have given u information on it. Really he should have discussed evrything with u, never leave without being comfortable and talking with ur doctor, u have a curved spine. some cases are bad and some are worse, really depends on u, im not sure there is alot u can do for treatment, just something u will have to talk to ur doctor about.


faith m
it is acurviter of the spine and will be treated if bad enough with a back brace. you need to keep you spine straight ad no treatmen with leave you looking like the hunchback.
good posture will also help

Scoliosis is a curve in your spine. its caused by cartilage and subluxation build up between the bone joints. can cause nerve damage.
My suggestion is to find a good chiropractor and keep getting treatment...


Janet
It is when your spine is curved. If the curve is under 10 degrees, it is normal. If the curve is 50 degrees or higher you have to have surgury. If the curve is between 10 and 50, you usually have to wear a back brace. The back brace will help make your spine straighter. Better start treatment ASAP, it could get worse if you wait.


wooble1
it is curvature of the spine. Can be genetic or postural. See and osteopath for assessment.


mlgable
Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine. It is treated with either a back brace or by doing surgery depending on how serious it is. You doctor should have mentioned what he felt was your best treatment option and if he didn't then call on Monday to ask what he plans to do.
