Q:

Do all scoliosis curves cause problems for people?

A:

Many people can have a degree of scoliosis in their spines, and be virtually unaffected by it. Along with the degree of curve in the spine, whether a person has pain or any other symptoms will play into their scoliosis. Generally speaking, a curve of less than 40 degrees in someone with scoliosis does not tend to cause any movement or range of motion issues. Those curves greater than 40 degrees can typically lead to more discomfort and functional problems, and may be subjected to worsening over time. Speak with your rheumatologist if you have questions about your scoliosis.

Q:

What BMI is considered obese?

A:

A BMI (Body Mass Index) of greater than 30 has been widely accepted as a measure of obesity. A BMI between 25 and 30 is considered overweight, and an ideal BMI would be between 18 and 25. Body Mass Index is a simple calculation to look at how heavy a person is given their height.
