Thanks for writing to us.
I understand that you have been told about scoliosis. It could be simple scoliosis due to muscle spasm or real scoliosis curve where you have rotated vertebrae. If its a small curve then nothing to worry. Regular back muscle stretching and exercise will help. However if you have persistent significant back pain then I would suggest to get MRI spine to know more about the disc condition and facet arthritis.
If its due to muscle spasm then it will be back to normal spine however if it is real scoliosis curve then it will remain like that or may worsen a little more with increasing age. Thanks.

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back that you are having is likely to be due to the muscle stiffness associated with scoliosis. Regular physiotherapy exercises will help in strengthening of the muscles and will reduce the pain.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.

Back pain seems to be due to postural effects of scoliosis and due to spasm and stiffness associated with it. If the scoliosis is slight nothing to worry about. Do regular physiotherapy exercises to strengthen the muscles around back. These will help to decrease the stiffness and spasm.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Regards.
Dr Saurabh Gupta.
