Riding with Scoliosis
Okay, so I'm 15 and just started riding in febuary with a lesson a week.(I ride english) And about when I was 14 I found out I had scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and I think my curves are about 26, 13, and 7. Before I never had much pain, but since I started riding it seems like my back is hurting more especially my shoulder blade that is really messed up because it got messed up from the curve. I was wondering if anyone else rides with scoliosis and if it has caused an increase in pain. Also, at my last lesson when I was cantering I noticed that it made my back hurt. I don't know if the pain is from the riding or something else. I know I havent been riding long, but I seem to have extra trouble with balance and my posture, but I don't know if that is from my back or just because I am a beginner. If there is anyone else out there who rides with scoliosis it would be awesome if you could give me your opinion on my situation and if you have ever had any problems with riding and your back.
