I have a dark line that goes down the middle of my back, right on my spine. now it wasn't there before I just want to know what it is and how to get rid of it. It is significantly darker than my skintone. All that I know is that I have mild scoliosis. A couple years ago I hurt my back while I was sledding down a hill of snow, and now my back hurts when i make certain movements. When it barely happened there were times when I was unable to move my back a lot because it hurt, I haven't felt that way in a while, but I still feel the pain in my back when I move in certain ways.

Hi, This line appear due to mild scoliosis and if scoliosis is not severe, symptoms could appear gradually or not at all. Other common symptoms include pain in your neck or back, numbness or tingling, weakness or pain in your arms or legs, and leg problems. Common treatments include consultation with a skin specialist and an orthopedician. Hope this helps.
