Re: My knee

If you've got a load of ligamental damage from the fall in addition to the problem that has now been removed, then that will still take however long it takes to heal - the arthroscopy cannot speed...

Re: cold weather

I would definitely get things in place to try to get a re-sit - if you've done ok, then no problem, but it may be that you don't even need to do a re-sit, but can be re-graded based on your...

Re: Post magnetic rod surgery, how many lenghtenings?

I don't know much about the magnetic rods, as they haven't been in use for all that long (and I've had a bit of a hiatus from the site), but I did want to say that although Manchester may not have...

Re: All happening so fast

Hiya :)

I'm sorry to hear that your daughter's curves have increased so suddenly. We've had quite a few parents who've posted here about their experiences over the years - in fact, Rachie seldom...

Re: Coping with scoliosis

Dizziness generally isn't a particular symptom of scoliosis, but that isn't to say that there might not be reasons related to scoliosis that could cause it in some cases. It is more likely to happen...

Re: adult bracing

Hi! I'm not actually sure we've got any other current SpineCor users here at the moment, although we do have some members who post occasionally who've used them in the past, Callie springs to mind...

Re: Clayton Stiitsel?

There were issues with pedicle screws in the early days, but an awful lot of that had nothing to do with their application in spinal curvature correction, but rather was the fact that they were used...

Re: Do any exercise techniques actually improve scoliosis?

Schroth therapy may help with the appearance, and as Gilly says, the postural element of the curvature - it is expensive and can be difficult to find practicioners though. Alexander Technique can...

Re: newbie here with a question. ..

There are quite a few possibilities. One is that the lower curve was present beforehand, and simply wasn't mentioned - with a very small and compensatory curve, it isn't always mentioned as it's...

Re: My knee

I had an arthroscopy several year ago after having trouble with my knee. I actually didn't find it too bad - like Els, they didn't find anything fixable (the MRI - in a very old machine - had...

Re: Calling all members - Unusal symptoms and need help has anyone ever experienced t

Re: Feeling disappointed & upset, need to rant and some sympathy!

Can I ask if your surgeon has done any side view xrays since surgery? If she hasn't, then I think you need to press for one to be done when you have your next check up. It may help with figuring...

Re: Scoliosis Consultants in USA, Canada and Australia
