Is there a possiblity** to fix a curve in someones spine???
im 12 and i have to go to kings daughters on august 13th for my spine. the doctors said i have a curve in it. but i was wondering if there is a way to fix it....b/c im scared to death about having to go up there
it might be Scoliosis and if it is you were born with it and no it can't be fixed but its not deadly. I've lived with mine all my life, and someday I will die with it. Alot of people are born with it that don't even know they have it.
dont be scared they wont harm you!
they are there to help you get BETTER :)
and NO there cant be any logical or safe way to manually fix it by yourself! dont try ANYTHING risky or stupid please!
the doctors will consult you and tell you what exercises or things you need to do to straighten it up if its really bugging you!
perhaps you will go for some physical or massage therapy and see bone specialists etc. i have had a similar thing - problems with my back / legs etc. they just tell you what it looks like and explain if its normal or if it needs treatment.
NO WORRIES! STAY HAPPY :)
seeing a chriopractor will be your best option they usually can get your spine back in shape with some adjustments, no drugs, no surgery. You should ask your mom to take you to one.
improving some1's posture is nothing ti fear
my spine is extremely curvy lol.
i do gym and stretch it alot, and it helps but its constantly pointing out my stomach and my back curves right in.
dont worry about it, it will grow normally once you're past 14/15.
hey. you probably have scoliosis. Just try to sit up straight as much as you can. You have to drink a lot of milk and other dairy products. it comes from lack of protein. Hope i helped you!

If there is, I would love to find out because I have the same problem. My doctor told me that it caused by carrying a very heavy bookbag on my back using only 1 strap during my childhood. :(
there are lots of ways. a brace is the normal option. it doesnt really hurt it just looks kinda funy sometimes. but its pretty easy. what kind of a curve do you have? forward, backw9ards, or to the side? that also makes difference. its really common for girlsto have curves in their spines, its not a big deal. just relax. :)
hi,you have juvenile scoliosis which is very common in young female..whether to fix it or not depending on the degree of spine curvature,how it affects the cardiorespiratory system which translates to your ability to do exercise,it is bad if you are restricted by it,if it doesnt cause anything you can forget about surgery as it is high risk surgery..worry not darling..you will be in good hands..
all the best
It depends on how severe the curve is. Often times they will give you a brace to wear. If the curve is SUPER severe they will do surgery but that is usually if your curvature is crowding your lungs and making it hard to breathe.
Your doctors will be able to tell you. Remember if you don't understand something you should ask them to explain it to you. Don't be afraid to ask questions and don't be scared to get this fixed! It will only improve your quality of life.
Good luck, hon!
It sounds like you have scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine. Scoliosis tends to run in families and may involve hereditary factors that haven't been identified yet.
The doctor will examine your spine and will probably have x-rays taken as well before determining the best course of treatment.
If the curve in your spine is mild, periodic exams (every four to six months) is all that's required. If the curve is moderate, a brace is recommended. A brace won't cure scoliosis but it will stop the progression of it. A severe curve will require surgery since the curve will only get worse as you grow.
Most cases of scoliosis are in the mild stage and usually only require regular checkups. Unless you're having other symptoms such as difficulty breathing or back pain, I would say you have nothing to worry about at this stage.
