Re: scoliosis

Muscle Weakness is NOT usually a part of MS. You may be thinking of another disease. However, aches and pains which definately are a part of MS, could affect the back- but not scoliosis...thats from something totally unrelated.

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system, the eyes, spine and affects the nerves, but not the muscles.

hope this helps.
RRMS- dx 05
