Hi doctor,

I am a 20 year old male. My height is 6'3" and weight is 180 pounds. I am having problems with my whole skeletal system. My right knee snaps when I extend my leg and my left hip has some pain. My left foot appears longer from heal to big toe and my right leg appears longer from the knee to the ground. I have been diagnosed with minor scoliosis and one shoulder appears higher than the other. I have minor neck pain plus my calf muscles get so tight and they hurt.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Are the findings that you have quoted your impression or seen and mentioned by a physiotherapist or doctor?
  • Have you been prescribed any physiotherapy? Have you had bloods taken to rule out any other cause of muscle weakness fatigue? Do you exercise regularly?
  • Sometimes, the things you have mentioned are postural and get fixed through proper physiotherapy.
  • Though the scoliosis is mild, first it needs to be investigated and confirmed by x-rays and the degree documented such that any progress can be picked up.
  • Have your vitamin D levels checked? Please get yourself examined and I am fairly hopeful that manual therapy and physiotherapy will work in most cases.
