  • I also have scoliosis and of course as you know there are many ways your spine can twist. Dont be afraid, see a doctor and see how sever it is. Perhaps you will have to wear a brace, but... it's no big deal... just a small amount of time of your life you have to wait till it gets removed. Or if you have mild scoliosis I find that a chiropractor can be affective and repair it to a small degree and relieve some pain (if you have it). But also if your arms get numb (like mine did) I had to have spinal fusion... but all is ok now. Just be positive and keep an open mind and dont get stressed out. Life goe on and be positive :)
