Welcome to Connect Stephen,
We have quite a group of people in the community talking about scoliosis. I’d like to introduce you to @lisafl @detzler @sauwoon8 @mieke @ruben130476 @safetyshield @coladyrev @ladidy @aeb1957 @annieecruz and @maclyn.

Hi Stephen @062291 Does the Aleve work for you and your pain level? Have you opted out of prescription pain meds? Just curious because i’ve heard that certain forms of scoliosis is very painful. Take care.

Alieve has been helpful but my level of degeneration is progressing beyond its capabilities. For a lot of reasons I have avoided narcotics!
I do not have pain for my scoiosis it more the need for pillows for my back when sitting for a long time or on hard back seats. But other than that I really do not have chronic pain. Though Tylenol is better for me than Aleve
