Hey everyone, newbie here

I just found this site while searching for exercises that can be done for pain relief of Scoliosis.

A neurologist told me three years ago after an MRI that I had mild scoliosis, mild arthritis in the lumber spine, I also have three compression fractures at T7, T8, and T10 because of a seizure. I am 44 years old just barely :) birthday was this past month.

Anyway, just a little history for you all.

Hope to meet at least a few people here, would be very helpful.

Thanks all,


  • Hi Stephanie,

    Let me welcome you to spine-health. Have a look around and you will find others with the same condition as yourself. Be sure to check out the great doctor written and peer reviewed articles the site has to offer. Also you can videos that will help you out as well. We do have a scoliosis section as well as the upper back section, that you might find some useful post in. Just thought I would stop by and welcome you to spine-health. If there is anything I can do for you don't hesitate to pm me. Take care and look forward to reading more of your post.

    Sounds like you would be interested in physical therapy. Physical Therapists are experts in the exact exercises that will give you the most benefit, how to do them safely, and even let you know what exercises might be "dangerous" for you in your particular conditions. I have found most PCP are usually pretty good about writing the letter/order for PT. I'd go back to whoever gave you the MRI and ask for PT. Your Therapist will need to know exactly what areas of the compression fractures, etc. Best of luck to you!
