Yes, it is possible to have scoliosis at any age.
Have you been diagnosed with scoliosis? It is very very important for your spine to be monitored for any changes in the curvature.
I was first diagnosed at 16 years of age....fast forward 2012 at age 61 had corrective surgery for severe scoliosis & collapsing lumbar. Fused from T2 to S1...all the way down the spine.
I had spine pain all my adult life. Unfortunately, I had doctors who were not supported or taking me seriously with the pain. Finally changed doctors & sent in for xrays,MRI, bone density tests, cat scans etc. Knew surgery would probably be in my future. In a year's time the curve went from 64 to 72 degrees.
The surgery has given me my life back. It is not 100% perfect but pretty darn close to perfect. I feel normal again. I can do things I have not been able to do in year. Most days I have so little pain that I can't complain but most days I am pretty much ache & pain free. I am 18 months post op. I still get tired easy, I can do most things I want & need to do...within reason of course. I need to take mini rest breaks throughout the day. It takes two years for the spine to fuse.
