Effectiveness Of Using A Buffer For Scoliosis Patients With Degree 21?
. I have scoliosis with a bend of 21-22 degrees. I am 28 years old. whether the use of a buffer can reduce the degree or no effect because I am 28 years old ???
Good evening, thanks for the question
In practice doctors rarely recommend braces / peers in cases of adult scoliosis because they are unable to improve the condition of spinal abnormalities due to bone in adults has reached maturity and is no longer growing. Although braces are given generally not for non-surgical treatment of scoliosis as in children, but to reduce complaints of back pain because it can help support the back so as to reduce the use of anti-pain medications.
Braces can also be recommended if the patient is judged unable to undergo surgery due to various causes.
Adult scoliosis patients need surgery if the following conditions are found:
1. Degree of severe scoliosis (> 40 degrees) and getting worse
2. Severe back pain and not responding to drugs
3. Spinal nerves also experience interference
Make further consultations with an orthopedic specialist for further treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
