Is Scoliosis Included In Physical Disability?
Do scoliosis sufferers include physical disabilities ???
Thank you for the question given on HealthReplies.com
Scoliosis is a medical condition where the spine (vertebra) is bent laterally or rotates. There are several types of scoliosis, viz
Type I: congenital (vertebral abnormalities from birth)
Type II: idiopathic (unknown cause, usually there is a similar history in the family)
Type III: neuromuscular (associated with neuromuscular disease)
In children, this condition is usually known by parents when looking at a child's back that is asymmetrical, can be accompanied by pain, and nerve disorders. In adult patients, scoliosis can also cause pain, limited activity, nerve disorders. Complaints that occur in patients depend on the degree of curve that is due to the bending of the spine.
Physical or physical impaired tuna are individuals who have movement disorders due to abnormalities in neuromuscular or bone structure. Patients with scoliosis cannot be said to be physically disabled unless the patient experiences limitations in daily activities and needs the help of others to do the activity.
To determine the degree of scoliosis, you should consult with a doctor so that further tests are carried out physical examination and additional examinations such as X-ray verterba to calculate the angle formed in the spine. Treatment for scoliosis patients depends on the angle formed.
Angles of less than 25 degrees require observation
Angles between 25-40 degrees are given bracing
Angles above 40 degrees require surgery
So, hopefully useful.
