Re: Scoliosis in the news - Richard III?

Good points...

I think the purpose of the documentary was to show that it could be done, which I think most people with scoliosis would already understand already. Scoliosis is a pain sometimes, but...

Re: rectal prolapse

Goodness, I'm so sorry to hear!

I've had a rectal prolapse for about eight years now. It does "come out" when I go to the loo, but it always goes back in too. I have no proof, but I think that due...

Re: Finally got my x rays done!

Well, I got a note back from my doctor today. Literally that, after three weeks waiting:

"You have slight scoliosis. Talk to your physiotherapist about your back."

I'm a little disgruntled, since I...

Re: What gives you motivation..

Lol, well celebrities with scoliosis help me a bit. Elizabeth Taylor and Rebecca Romijn come to mind, since they're both really beautiful. I think I relate more to Sarah Michelle Geller though, since...

Do any exercise techniques actually improve scoliosis?

Of course, I don't just mean by pain management, but actual and documented curve change. I imagine the answer is no (I'm very highly suspicous!) but when I'm feeling low about how I look, even...

Re: Down day help

Heya Ellen!

My scoliosis wasn't caught until recently (I'm 23 now) so I was never braced. I know what it feels like to feel "different" though and to be afraid of being rejected by peers, and how...

How to feel good about yourself?

The question really.

My scoliosis isn't major, but I still have enough oddities about my body that frustrate me. I'm genuinely afraid to put effort into my appearance. On top of being trans, I feel...

Finally got my x rays done!

Heya all

After a long period, my x ray results are finally here. My official doctor's report won't be in for a while, but until then would anyone be able to help me work out what I have and by how...

Short leg?

Hey all

Does anyone else have one short leg as well as scoliosis? I'm slightly confused by my case. Usually it seems like the shorter leg is on the side with the higher hip, so the leg is being...

Re: Hope for adults with moderate scoliosis?

Hrm... perhaps. I've seen results like that too, and I'd definitely like to be believe them at face value, but the greatest reductions seem to be greatest in people with high curves anyway, which...

Re: Hope for adults with moderate scoliosis?

Hey Mateja.

I wish I could give you a solution to your problems. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone can, and even if they could, I wouldn't know it myself >:. I don't know quite what you've gone...

Thinking about things again

Once again, venting space.

I've thought a lot more about my scoliosis since the last time I've posted. I'm back now in the UK for a bit, to sort out some issues with my TMJ (brought on by my head...

Hey all.

I spoke to my doctor today about the possibilities for the future. He sees no point in me seeing a specialist, since my case is apparently mild. I can see his reasoning. I did manage to get...

Re: Options for high curves/cervical scoliosis?

Lord, I'm not sure. Perhaps change it to "options for my high curve?" since this is a personal topic. It's nice to know I'm not the only one though!
