Leg And Hand Joints Are Often Painful In People With Scoliosis?
Hello I want to ask, I am a scoliosis sufferer, lately the joints in the legs and arms often feel painful even though I do not do heavy activities. Is this joint pain related to my scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a condition where the spine is tilted to one side of the body. Scoliosis can usually begin in childhood or adolescence. The exact cause of scoliosis is unknown, but genetic factors can play a role.
From the situation that you are experiencing, the pain in the joints of the hands and feet is usually not related to the scoliosis that you are experiencing. Pain in the joints of the feet and hands can be caused due to several causes such as:
rheumatoid arthritis (RA) gout (especially in the ankle and toe joints) joint infections for example due to bacterial infection or tuberculosis osteoarthritis (OA) one of the causes that can cause frequent pain in the joints and hands can be caused by RA. RA is an autoimmune disease that attacks joints. RA can cause inflamed joints, and joints that are inflamed for a long time can cause pain and joint damage. RA can cause symptoms such as pain in small joints such as fingers / toes, morning stiffness, swelling and redness in the joints.
Therefore, if indeed your situation has occurred in a long time then you should check yourself first with a doctor, so the doctor can examine your condition directly and provide the right therapy for you. Don't take any medicine.
You can stretch in the morning, regular exercise can help. Don't smoke and don't consume alcohol.
