scoliosis

I have scoliosis, it bothers me when/after I run, otherwise no problem.

Anyone here has knowledge / own experience to share?

Of course I'm due to see health care professionals, just no harm in a casual chats with random strangers on top of it....

Thanks,

    I have no personal experience of scoliosis, but I did once know a young man who had it. He went on to be a very talented artist.

    And of course, Richard III had scoliosis. It didn’t stop him from having an “interesting” life.😁

    Just, please, don’t start up the Wars of the Roses again. 😊

    My mother-in-law had it and so does my daughter, but not as badly as MiL. They were/are both keen gardeners, but they both had back ache and had to be a bit careful. Daughter takes paracetamol and has check-ups.

    One niece, and one daughter of a friend, both had it, but picked up in their teens. Both successfully operated on, and pretty well normal, although niece says she sometimes sets off metal detectors at airports!
