Pain when pushing on vertebrae

Hi, I have scoliosis. I have many pain points due to thinning or degeneration of disks. Though one new one is in the upper thoracic. When I push one the vertebrae there's pain, and now seems to be constant like a needle being stuck there. This happens now where else in my spine. Any suggestions on what this could be. It's not like my other pain where degeneration is, which is an ache to more severe flair-ups of pain in degenerative parts. Can't go to doctor for every little thing. Thanks! Doug


  • Could it be inflammation? I know that when I am having muscle spasms I can't stand to have anything touch my L-Spine.
  • :) hi and welcome to the forum! :H we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. i know it may be difficult but stop pushing on that area. :T give it time to heal. it could be as simple as inflammation but you are not giving it a chance to rest. I) if it does continue to bother you, see your doc. in the meantime, ask your pharmacist about an over the counter med for pain relief and something for inflammation. :-C good luck! Jenny :)
