I knew a girl who had scoliosis. She eventually went to get surgery on it and have her spine straightened because it affected her so much. She would have to lean to one side slightly while walking. Id talk to a doctor before you step back into it to be sure...

I had scoliosis. Its almost gone now I think. Mine wasnt that bad but things that helped me the most included pilates, not studying for a while, while using both hands hanging from a bar, this really staights the spine. Scoliosis is caused by a muscular imbalance of the muscles on both sides of the spine. When doing any exercise make sure you workout both sides equally. Check out also a chiropractor, massage therapist, physiotherapist and osteopatrh.

I had it also, I remember the last time I check for it was in 6th grade when I was 11ish, not sure about now. It went away or got better, actually im not sure what happened, but it happened when I started doing deadlifts, and truthfully I grew an inch taller, to bad it didnt make much of a diffrence lol

When you talk about "degeneration of the spine" are you refering to the discs or vertebrae?
