I was born with a slight scoliosis(which ever since I did my first pulldown-yes, PULLDOWN, a billion years ago when I considered chins useless-, deadlift, squat.
Now, after doing deads the pain seemed to dimnish (note that when lifting I feel NO pain, I feel it only during some spine flexion/extension movements…as I have seen it seems that in place of an “2D” flexion/extension-straight to front- I usually -meaning when I don’t flex every little bit o muscle to stabilize my spine- I do this in “3D” - front + rotation).
The scoliosis tough can be pretty hard to notice(meaning slight)… and I can stand up perfectly straight if I try.
Is weight lifting (well more like deads, standing overhead presses, squats and side bends) dangerous for me? Can it aggravate my existing condition? If so, always or only if my technique is lacking? Is there any way to correct this? (exercises, etc.)
P.S.:please DON’T tell me to visit a doctor. The doctors I have access to are total ignorants, and they haven’t the least of an idea about sports.
