Hi I have scoliosis on the lower part of my spine. The curve bends to the left and is around a 32-37 degree curve. My left leg is about .5 inches shorter than the other. I am 21 years old and was wondering if I could do squats and deadlifts as part of my exercise routine if i have a balance correction insert in my shoe.

My spine hurts when I press on it, please advise?

For almost 3 weeks now, part of my spine hurts when I press on it. Around the area of pain feels like knots. I would breathe in around that area where my ribs are it would feel like tightness & when I would try touching shoulder blades it would feel like it’s pinching. Last year I went to PT for my muscles in back causing spine movement in my lower back.

I suffer with weakness in my left leg since a knee injury 7 years ago.

Hello, I’m a 31 year old male with an un-diagnosed issue for 7 years.

I suffer with weakness in my left leg since a knee injury 7 years ago. My knee is now completely fine but my gluten muscles (through the buttock) are always very tight and it causes me tight hamstrings and even foot pressure.
When I’m walking around I can feel the lack of muscle strength in my leg, it feels like it’s dropping and collapsing downwards causing me to limp around most days. Even gentle activity such as walking or going upstairs can be challenging. My leg will tremble when squatting or bending down. I’ve had treatment from Chiropractors and Physiotherapists but it doesn’t solve the problem.

Back in 2011 I saw a Neurologist who said he “didn’t know anything about leg weakness, it’s not his area” and had no idea what was going on but did send me for an MRI scan, he told me to see a Podiatrist as it could be something to do with the foot. The MRI scan came back normal and the Podiatrist said these symptoms are Neurological and I shouldn’t have been taken off the Doctors list.

In 2015 My Doctor referred me to a Orthopedic specialist who deals with back problems, so I thought this was good progress . Within 5 months I was told I can’t go to the specialist and talk to him and was taken off the waiting list by the health service. This is because the spine MRI scans have come back normal. Apparently there’s no pathology on the scans , so a specialist won’t be able to give any ““answers”. Chiropractors/Physiotherapy have told me they are certain the problem is starting from the lumber area of my back, possible L2 L3…?
I have to mention that it doesn’t seem to be Sciatica, nobody finds any real pressure causing a Sciatica problem. I’m being told it’s more pressure on a nerve somewhere else.

Within 7 years I’ve now seen Physiotherapists, 2 Chiropractors, and a Podiatrist .I have quite a lot of soft tissue massage that relieves symptoms for a while, however the problem still remains.
I would love to know what could be causing the symptoms. How can it be so difficult for Doctors to diagnose? Are there any more tests that could find out what’s going on? I recently had to push a luggage trolley and it’s aggravated the whole condition so I’m now experiencing more discomfort.

I would appreciate your opinion and any advice you can give me.

Is my knee pain and back pain related?

Mild patellofemoral chondromalacia with minimal patella alta. I was diagnosed three years ago with that. Last year I was diagnosed with mild spondyltic and disc degenerative changes present at mutiple levels in my back. I was wondering if my knee pain is causing my back pain?

I’ve had pain in my legs for a couple months now?

I’ve had pain in my legs for a couple months now – much more pronounced in my right leg and even more so in my knee. During the day, it’s sore but I don’t really pay that much attention to it, but at night, it’s a different story. As long as I keep it straight, it’s tolerable. And I can sleep with it bent as well. But after being bent, when I try to straighten it out, it feels like a rubber band has contracted while bent and straightening it feels like stretching this horrible rubber band over and around my knee. I also get a significant dull ache over my right shin. My knee during the day feels “full” (for lack of a better description). Doesn’t appear swollen or red. My doctor writes it off as “osteoarthritis” however he’s done no testing. Does this sound like osteoarthritis to you? Again, thank you for any insight you can provide.

LOSS OF LORDOSIS
I have this problem since last 10 years but I don’t aware of it but last 15 days I have very bad back pain so visit doctor and he took x-ray and the x-ray show that I have loss of lordosis problem.
