Can marijuana help ease pain caused by scoliosis?
Yes i have scoliosis and i smoke weed every day. Tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) is by far the most effective, cleanest pain killer I've ever experienced.

Thanks for the feedback!
To help with scoliosis, you can do yoga, pilates and swimming. Any other exercise is okay-ed by doctors but those three and the best for your back. Once you are from 20 to 40 …degrees, a brace is recommended (night or day and night braces). After 40 degrees, a surgical operation is needed. I hope this helps, I'm trying it for myself. :)

Yes, it is a pain reliever.
Marijuana's active cannabinoids do not 'block' the pain. Some research suggests there may be a secondary dopamine and endorphin reaction caused by the 'high'. What many users …do find is that the peaceful, euphoric sensation puts one in a position to better endure their illness. Also, many chronic conditions affect the appetite; see cannabis as an appetite stimulant and anti nauseate. Side note: cannabis increases the effect of narcotic pain killers.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curve in the spine. It is frequently unstable, (in other words, it gets worse over time) and can effect all sorts of connections from the spine to oth…er parts of the body. For example, the ribs abutting up to the spine could be out of alignment. This can even affect your breathing if sufficiently severe. Not only that, but your spine is a stack of about 72 small joints. If those go out of alignment, they can put pressure on the tissues that cushion each bone in the stack from the other. This means that the disks get stressed, swell or get damaged. The third way you get back pain comes from uneven distribution of muscle stress across the back. If the spine curves more towards one side, then muscles get over extended on one side, and not enough on the other. Then, if you move one way, you risk injuring those muscles, and on the other, the muscles get easily fatigued. It can also cause disruption of free movement in your shoulders, hips and tail bone. Because the nerves running across your back are fairly sparse and lack specific sensitivity, even things like shoulder or pain from the hip socket, or even problems with muscles along the ribs can be perceived as back pain.
For the purpose of the discussion, I'll restrict the answer to Idiopathic Scoliosis as there are many types of scoliosis and the question did not specify which one. … Idiopathic scoliosis, although named due to unknown causes, is now known to be genetic in origin. However, only one of the genes responsible for the condition has been identified to date and there may be environmental trigger mechanism which hasn't been identified. Generally, prevalent theory is that genetic prevalence makes one susceptible to the condition. Initially, hormonal imbalance is present and causes abnormal growth of the spine. One of the 5 growth centers of the spine will lag in growth rate and cause initial tilt. The tilting can cause additional loading on the lagging side inhibiting normal growth further. During growth spurt phase, while other growth centers are growing at a normal rate, inhibited growth center further lags causing more severe wedging of the vertebral bone.
The spine is a very sensitive part of the body, and scoliosis is the curviture of the spine, it may hurt, plus, the curviture may crush other organs, causing the pain, a…lso.
No, giving your dog alcohol is bad anyway. I would advise against this at all cost. it may even kill your pet if it has to much.
Scoliosis is caused by a breakdown in structure or function. Both scoliosis and list will cause varying degrees of pain, ranging from mild to severe and affecting the neck, ba…ck, and legs. Neck pain, back pain, and sciatic nerve pain or sciatica may be alleviated or even eliminated, depending on the severity of the curvature and the measures used to offset it.
Marijuana has two categories. They are Indica strains or Sativa strains. Indica does help with pain especially in conjuction with prescription opiates. It gives the mellow rel…axed high. Sativa strains give more of an energy high.
There are many causes for scoliosis which are congenital genetic neuromuscular Other causes for scoliosis include cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, spi…nal muscular atrophy and tumors

There's no Tylenol for the heart. Sure, you can take some stuff that will dull your mind for a while, but that is not the way to heal. When you come back, it'll all stil…l be there, along with the mess you made by being gone. You should go ahead and let yourself feel what you feel. Experience your true feelings, the sadness, and anger, the relief--all of it. Talk about them to your closest friends or family, and talk about them to yourself in writing. Even talk to a counselor if you need to. Go on through it. That's the shortest distance to the other side. You'll be okay. You might not think so now, but you will.
My 5 mo. old kitten was just spayed yesterday. She is in pain today and I have called the vet and they told me as small as she is I could give her 1/4 tsp. of liquid Bendrel. … I don't have any and I am taking her back this afternoon for a pain shot.
The main cause of scoliosis is if you bend over to much. this can cause the spine to curve. it happens to teachers a lot because they are always looking down and it happens t…o more girls than boys. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ this is actually incorrect. IDIOPATHIC SCOLIOSIS HAS NO KNOWN CAUSE you CANNOT get it from 'bending over too much' or 'carrying a heavy bag' you will get it regardless. other forms of scoliosis however have known causes yes it happens more in girls than boys, 2% of healthy boys will get scoliosis where as the percentge of girls is much much higher when i say healthy boys, i mean boys who have no health problems / disabilities scoliosis seems to go hand in hand with heart conditions other muscular diseases such as muscular distrophy / ostrophy etc. people often perk up at that when i say 'health problems' note, this does not include any mental illnesses such as depression or anxiety. mostly just heart and muscle conditions. (although scoliosis can cause other mental conditions to arise, sadly)
