Scoliosis.... let's wait and see approach.

Posted by   + Show Post

Would you wait and see if your child was diagnosed with this problem?

Apparently that's what my daughters' doctor felt was the right plan of action. But I have doubts.

She is 10 yrs old and otherwise a healthy child. She had her well visit today and this was discovered during her visit. He wants her to return in 6 months to see if it has progressed or not. But I'm wondering if it's better that she sees a specialist now? I have to say, this really has me worried. I was expecting an easy visit and clean bill of health ( as usual ).

Has anyone had this experience with there child? Did it progress? What did you do?

I have one dd she is 10 months old, I did have some lower back pain during pregnancy but then again everyone does. I'm a very petite person, I weigh 100lbs soaking wet and am 5'2. I still do see a chiropractor on occasion. I will say because of where my curve is I think it made delivery more difficult, I broke my tailbone or should I say my dd did...lol. my right hip is slightly higher than my left. But other than that its not caused any huge issues.

I have a MINOR 6 degree curve. It was diagnosed in my teens. I think waiting for 6 months is ok. There are all degrees of scoliosis. If the ped were terribly concerned, they wouldn't be waiting.
