Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves sideways abnormally to form an inverted S or S. This condition can appear in varying degrees of severity. If the degree of curvature of your scoliosis has reached 40 degrees, then this condition can be classified as moderate - severe (moderate - severe). This condition can clearly make sufferers very disturbed in their activities because it is easier to feel pain, easily tired, and clinically, the shape of the back, shoulders, and pelvis will look very different. Scoliosis with high severity, if not treated properly is very risky to cause sufferers to experience complications, not only related to impaired appearance and recurring back pain, but can also cause disturbances in lung and heart function.
Scoliosis is often not known the exact cause. However, people with neuromuscular disorders (such as cerebral palsy), birth pox that affects the growth of the spine, and injuries or infections of the spine are far more at risk of developing this disorder. If the degree is still mild, the doctor may carry out conservative therapy, namely by observation and installation of a special brace. However, if the degree is severe enough (reaching 40 degrees or more, then surgery is the most recommended treatment.
Of course, no medical treatment is carried out without risk, and scoliosis treatment is no exception. In some cases, postoperatively, sufferers may experience paralysis (paraplegia), bleeding, pseudoarthritis (failure of the spine to fuse), infection, leakage of cerebrospinal fluid, pulmonary embolism, and so on. With the experience and competence of doctors, the risk of these complications can usually be minimized. Therefore, we recommend that you consult directly with your doctor or orthopedic surgeon who treats you, yes. He certainly knows more about the best management that can help you deal with your complaints. That way, you can return to normal activities without significant obstacles.
