Back Looks Crooked And Not Straight?
I am a 20-year-old woman, I realize that my shoulders and waist are not balanced between right and left, my head down, there is a lump on my right back and my backbone looks turned or is not straight, what is the initial action I should take? Can this be overcome without using surgery? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Scoliosis is a condition of the spine that is bent like the letter C or the letter S, and this can be observed from the outside in the form of shoulder bones that are not the same height, the body leaning to one side, uneven waist height, and the shoulder blades that appear prominent. When it is severe, symptoms can appear muscle aches and shortness of breath due to poor position.
This condition is still unknown cause until now, but it is more often found in young women. Regarding your question, if you do have scoliosis, there are many levels of scoliosis depending on what degree of slope of your spine. If what you are experiencing is still mild, it does not need surgery. Maybe using a corset is enough for you.
However, to find out the severity and the severity of your scoliosis, you should check with your orthopedic doctor. Later your orthopedic doctor will do a physical examination and support in the form of X-rays to assess the severity of the condition and determine the most appropriate treatment for you. Regarding the initial steps, there are no steps you can do independently, because this condition is not known to the cause and cannot be handled by doing your own movements at home. All you can do is as far as taking pain medication if there is pain and warm compresses or patches on your shoulders and waist. The rest, you should immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
