Scoliosis

Hi there, I am a 30 year old female and I have quite prominent scoliosis. I was diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis when I was in my early teens. I have a classic S curve, a hump on the right side of my back and some asymmetry to my waist protruding on the left. I was wondering if there is any chance of some correction to it with treatment or if treatment is solely based around relieving pain? I do also have pain after walking a lot or carrying things so I am interested none the less I can provide a picture of my most recent x ray


Hi,

We wouldn’t know if any corrective treatment could be applied until one of us has assessed you and had a look at the x-rays. Even then, it would be somewhat of an unknown quantity until we’d tried a course of treatment.

Treating for pain relief in a case like yours is a much more likely to be successful though.
