Re: Avoid certain stretches?

Hi,

I think some stretches do not work for scoliosis in so far as they may compromise the muscles even more and actually cause more discomfort and pain.

Re: Consultation tomorrow

Hi,

I honestly think that you should get a second opinion and now rather than later- while you are fired up etc. Go to London to someone for whom scoliosis surgery on AIS patients (even though...

Re: chest pain?

I get chest pains too- it is probably muscle spasms. The ones I get seem to be from my ribs and the pain can be quite shocking and make me gasp for air. People around me always think it is my...

My rescheduled appointment is this afternoon at RNOH.

I don't want to go- I expect I will just cry- all I seem to do now if anyone talks to me.
