Re: is it possible to have rapid scoliosis?
You probably had it from birth, most people do. I can only give advice, as I have Severe Scoliosis with ruptured discs, nerve impingement...the whole nine yards. DON'T do any heavy lifting or pushing. Nothing that requires strength from the back. You don't want to have surgery, as there are too many drs. making mistakes out there & you don't want to be one of them. Don't re-arrange the heavy furniture.....pay someone, or if you're female, have your husband do it. Just Lifting the corner of a couch or bed can make it worse, it may not..but WHY take the chance? Is that kind of thing worth it? NO. Go easy on the back, and excercise to strengthen the muscles around it. I went for 12 yrs. with a pain diagnosis of Fibromyalgia to find out, FINALLY, that I have & have had Severe Scoliosis and that was the cause of most of my pain. If your scoliosis is a mild to moderate case it's good to invest in an Inversion table. They're not that big, nor are they terribly expensive. You lay on it (like a lounge chair to sun in) and your ankles clamp into these padded clamps, and then you lay back. First you're flat out straight (prone)..and then you start to raise your arms, which makes you go Upside down (there's a strap beneath the chair to adjust to how far you are comfortable with and you adjust it, I go all the way) Gravity & the weight of your body then gently pulls your spine. It's not Mechanical like a Traction Machine, it's just your own body weight in reverse so it's not harmful, actually, I wish I could sleep like that, but it's not comfortable enough, and the blood does goe to your head at the beginning, but you get used to that quickly.
hope that helps....Just don't do any heavy lifting or pushing (your back muscles are involved in alot more than just lifting)...Good Luck.
