Anybody ever been diagnosed with this?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoliosis

I remember when I was a Sr. in highschool they made us do this "bend over" test like they're describing there.

They told me I had a 'mild' case of it but it wasn't bad.

I didn't think anything of it because I was 17 and completley and utterly invincible. Heh biggrin.gif

Anyways, I've pretty much been living with constant back pain for about the last 3 years straight now, hasn't really gotten any worse or any better.

According to that article on wikiepdia, Scoliosis is the curvature of the spine in a paralell plant with your rib cage, but it shouldn't cause a "hump" in your back should it?

I've known I kinda have a hunch back for years, probably due to horrible posture since I was a kid sitting in front of a computer, but it seems to be getting more pronounced as I get older.

I was seeing a chiropractor about a year ago and he'd pop my back and all that and it felt good but I think the guy was a quack ....

Anybody have any experience with this stuff?

One of my friends has a pretty bad case of it. Too late for any treatment, but she does physical therapy for her back pain.

I have a minor case of it. It can cause a hump if the curvature pushes other bones/organs out of the way.
