I read the scoliosis story where the woman had surgery at 17 then back pain for years. I, too, have scoliosis. It was discovered at 15 then spinal surgery when 16. I was in bed for 6 months in a body cast. This was 44 years ago. Dr. Sarno believes scoliosis is caused by TMS. I have had so many illnesses over the years; scoliosis, low back pain, neck pain, pelvic pain, tailbone pain, heel pain, shin splints, TMJ, asthma, allergies, restless leg, leg cramps, carpal tunnel and more. I would also add to the unexplained list of illnesses dupuytren's contracture which is a hard growth in the palm of my hand (unexplainable) and Haglund's deformity which I have on my heels (unexplainable). But that will be the end of it all. I now have an answer. I have steps I can take to relieve the pain. The future is bright. I can do this and you can too. I believe I will have to work on this all my life but that is ok. I can do this.
