Q:

What are the signs of scoliosis?

A:

The first sign of scoliosis tends to be noticing that the shoulders are not even. In the case of scoliosis in adolescence, sometimes a parent will notice that their teen's back doesn't look straight and might resemble a C or an S. The muscles on either side of the spine can have apparent differences which is linked to scoliosis. If you think you have scoliosis, you can ask someone to look at your back from behind you, without any clothing on, to see if the spine appears straight or otherwise. Of course, the best way to diagnose scoliosis is to visit your family doctor and ask to be assessed.

Q:

What activity can I do after a knee replacement?

A:

After a knee replacement, you can still participate in activities but you need to make sure they are safe for your joints. Basically high impact sports or sports that involve a lot of running and jumping are not well suited to your knees after surgery.

Q:

Diagnosing Glaucoma and Treatment Options

A:

The academic definition of glaucoma is an insult or damage or injury to your peripheral vision associated with typical changes on your optic nerve, which is the nerve that connects your eye to the brain. In the simplest terms, it’s easy to think about glaucoma as being associated with damage to your vision as a result of high pressure, although high pressure isn’t always a requisite for having glaucoma said Dr. Baseer Khan.
