Lauralee, may I ask if you would share a few more details? Have you been diagnosed with scoliosis?
I’m doing a scoliosis training (3D) therapy now, called ‘Schroth therapy’ (German origin) and although it isn’t easy and it causes quite a lot of muscle pain, my deformaty gets less, my posture more normal and I have less ribb pain. I think you can find information about it on YouTube and websites. You have to correct yourself and make muscles that are too weak stronger and make corrections trough directed breathing. It helps childeren as well as adult patients (goal is to stop progression and improve quality of life) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3180431/

I was diagnosed with scoliosis in 1984. I had surgery where a Harrington rod was inserted into my spine to help with strength and correction of the curvature. In the past few years I’ve experienced heart pain yet tests reveal the pain was not a heart attack. I have seen a heart specialist 5 days ago who said test results show a good heart and clear arteries, the heart pain is caused either from the skeleton or muscles around my heart
I would like to join this discussion. My pain is too great now from another problem to elaborate. Thank you.
Of course, @jeriliz; please take your time to heal and feel better. We are here, we are listening.
I have scoliosis and mild pectus excavatum. As a 46-year-old adult, is there a risk of these issues getting worse? And, I’ve read about exercises that can help – is that really effective?
