I am a woman in my early 50's who has have scoliosis since the age of 13. It never really gave me any problems up until about two years ago when I began walking up at night in horrible pain. My back doctor did two L4-L5 nerve block injections which really didn't help much. Then they tried burning the L4-L5 nerve about a month ago which didn't work either. Now they're thinking its my scoliosis causing my nerve pain. Really, they couldn't figure that out three injections ago??? When I went to see the doc who did the burning of the nerve, he told me that he thinks its my scoliosis giving me the problem and the only way to really know for sure is to do surgery which he can't guarantee success. He said he would like to see me in a therapy program for my scoliosis which I believe he used the term schroth rather than stretching. Was just wondering if any adults out there have had this type of therapy for their scoliosis and if it was successful and how often you have to go for treatment.
Any replies will be most welcome and thank you in advance!
