Guest ckdancegirl7 Posted October 15, 2003 Report Share Posted October 15, 2003 I found out two weeks ago that I have scoliosis. My spine is curved in two different places, and I have recently been having alot of pain in my upper left back. I've been dancing for ten years and have dreamt of a professional dance career since I was four...will my back problems shatter that dream?? I have seen a chiropractor four times already and he says that if I continually go to him to have my back alligned, my spine will eventually become straight, after between 5 and 12 months of appointments. Do you know of any dancers who also have scoliosis who have still become professional? My back is definitely improving but the pain still persists, and I've had to miss many dance classes. What can I do to strengthen my back in the meantime until it is fully healed (which could be many months)? I would greatly appreciate any advice. Quote Link to comment
