Customer Question

I have results from a MRI that shows mild levoconvex scoliosis of the lower lumbar spine with a tilted thoracolumbar junction to the right. What does this mean?

This means that your spine is curved in the lower region

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.

It may be due to degeneration (from age), or you may have been born like that

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.

The degree of curvature will determine the next course of action

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.

If it is mild, then there is usually nothing to do

Thank you for your answer. I think I will pursue further info with my doctor.
