Scoliosis from l5s1 herniation?


A large l5s1 herniation has left me with lots of back pain when I bend backwards and try to do any extension exercising- which I am very confused about because everywhere I read says that's supposed to help it.
My herniation has left me with some scoliosis on my lower/mid back. Is this common? When I bend backwards and forwards my mid back hurts so much like it's severely bruised And literally can't bend forward and feels like if I force it something will pop out. Has this been experienced by anyone else? Is it normal to result from a herniation. Getting so concerned and I don't see the surgeon for 2 months



  • If you are concerned about new symptoms, try calling for an earlier appointment. We can't tell you what may be normal or not for your particular condition. The only one who can tell you that is the doctor who has your medical information.
