Causes And Ways Of Healing The Backbone Curved To The Right And Bent?
Hello. I want to ask about my illness, but let me explain a few things that seem important for answers consideration. I am a 16 year old teenager. My body is very asymmetrical because my backbone is curved to the right and is bent, like a camel with a hump. In family history, no one has experienced anything similar or similar to what I experienced. Although my body is not symmetrical, but fortunately I did not experience severe complaints, just getting tired, long legs, and poor appearance. In my opinion, as long as it doesn’t hurt, I don’t need to take it seriously. Then, what I want to ask is What is the name of the disease? How can the disease arise? What is the danger for my future? Is there a way of healing other than surgery given the already large degree of tilt? Thank you, thank you.

We understand the concerns that you feel.
Based on the information you have given, it is likely that you have a deformed spine called scoliosis.
Scoliosis is a condition of disorders of the spine that is tilted to one side of the body, causing bodily deformities that can be accompanied by symptoms such as back pain, movement disorders, respiratory problems, and various other complaints that can interfere with daily activities.
Keep in mind that as we get older, we also increase the burden of the spine to support the body. Hormonal influences also affect bone conditions, so women are more susceptible to bone problems in old age, especially when they reach menopause and the risk is higher. Besides environmental influences such as strenuous activities or high workloads can also affect bone conditions and increase the severity of scoliosis suffered.
To find out for sure whether you have scoliosis or not, I suggest that you do an examination and evaluation to the nearest doctor directly. Or you can also consult this matter in more detail with an orthopedic specialist. Direct physical examination or radiological examination, CT scan and MRI may be needed to assess your condition with certainty. If there are indications of a skoliois, the doctor will give medical considerations regarding the appropriate treatment for your condition, whether operating or non-operative.
Scoliosis is a spinal disorder that should be managed properly and early. Especially you are classified as women who are still young. If not handled properly, it will certainly cause uncomfortable complaints to be felt and other symptoms can also arise. If at any time you undergo pregnancy and postpartum, the disorder can be a condition that can increase the risk of complications in pregnancy, complicating pregnancy and childbirth and triggering the severity of symptoms later on.
What you can do is avoid the wrong sitting habits, sit up straight, avoid strenuous activities, maintain a healthy body so that you don't overdo it and do a healthy lifestyle every day by consuming nutritious food, getting enough rest and regular exercise.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
