Default Re: Pain


I assume that you have had an x-ray to establish that you have scoliosis. In many instances a curve develops without any symptoms whatsoever apart from the outward change in body shape. However, for inexplicable reasons, a mild scoliosis may be associated with some "mild" aching discomfort as the curve develops but not "phantom pains" as you have described. There are many conditions in which spinal curvature occurs and I suggest you read About Scoliosis on our website. Severe pain with scoliosis is a "red flag" and further investigation beyond an x-ray is indicated. You are well advised to ask your family doctor to refer you to a spinal specialist and a directory (Australia-wide) of specialists who are members of the Spine Society of Australia is on our website.

We trust this information is helpful.
