Re: Having problems with scoliosis
Have you seen an orthopeadic or a physical therapist? You might want to check with a doctor to make sure the scoliosis isn't impigning on any other organ functions. You didn't say if your curve is in the upper or lower back or both. Orthopeadic surgeons don't always suggest surgery, especially if you have a balanced curve and it's not interfering with other organs. They can also write prescriptions for PT so your insurance will cover it.
Strengthening the abdominal muscles seems to help, no matter what your back problems.
Good luck to you,
