Hello Fadhilla! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Scoliosis is a condition that causes the spine to curve to the side. Scoliosis usually begins to form at a young age, between 9-14 years. Scoliosis is divided into functional / postural scoliosis and structural scoliosis. The causes of scoliosis range from no cause, muscle and nerve disorders, to disorders of the bones themselves. Scoliosis can cause pain and muscle imbalance. If left untreated, scoliosis can get worse and cause complications. A complication that often occurs with luumbar scoliosis is a disruption of the hips, so that one leg will appear shorter than the other.
Therapy for scoliosis aims to prevent the scoliosis from getting worse and improve the alignment of the spine. The treatment chosen for scoliosis depends on your age, sex, growing period, severity of the curve, location of the scoliosis (thoracic or lumbar), and the likelihood of scoliosis progression. A scoliosis degree that exceeds 45 degrees in a young patient is an indication of surgery. Smaller degrees may require surgery if other indications are available. At a scoliosis angle of 20-45 degrees, physiotherapy accompanied by bracing can still be done. Patients must undergo close supervision from orthopedic doctors and medical rehab doctors. Physiotherapy that must be done usually requires 2 exercise schedules per week. There are a variety of braces to treat scoliosis. An examination by a medical rehab doctor is required to determine the appropriate brace.
You should immediately see an orthopedic doctor to consult about your problem. You can discuss what therapy is best for you. Keep in mind, the goal of therapy is not only to relieve pain, but also to achieve alignment of the spine which is important for your quality of life in the future.
Thus I convey this information. I hope this helps.
