I have sculiosis (sp?) but it isn't very bad. Last time I went to the doctor they said the curve went down from 18 degrees to 12 in two years, so hopefully it will keep decreasing. My concern is that one of my hips is noticably bigger than the other, and I was wondering if this had to do with my back? It bothers me, a lot. Is there anything I can do about it?
I'm no expert, but I've never been affected with scoliosis (I don't think i spell it right either ) and my right hip is bigger than my left. But, it probably could because my best friend had scoliosis and one hip was higher than the other.
I'm no expert, but Scoliosis can make one hip appear bigger than the other due to the fact that people with serious Scoliosis tend to sit on one hip more than the other because of the way their spine is curved. Then again, Scoliosis may have nothing to do with one's hip being larger than the other. You could have been born that way, or there could be other reasons.
As I said in the beginning of my post, I'm not an expert. If you want to know if the fact that one of your hips appears bigger than the other has anything to do with your condition, I'd ask your doctor. He/She will have the answers you need.
I have scoliosis and i think it is normal for one hip to be bigger than the other. My right hip is a little higher because of the scoliosis and I think that my left shoulder is a little higher too.
