Overcoming Disorders Of The Spine Only With Physiotherapy?
Hello, I want to ask about spinal problems. My mother is 58 years old. From young to 24 years old I worked as a housemaid (coolie washing rubbish). And now the effect of my mother’s hard work is experiencing pain in the spine. It has been an X-ray, MRI and was declared to have surgery, if it would not experience paralysis. But my mother did not dare to surgery so took alternative medicine. The treatment is in order. During treatment it does not hurt but after returning home the pain begins to feel again. Because it still hurts, my mother took herbal medicine based on people’s advice. Now the pain goes through the chest. I checked with a specialist in internal medicine, but he said this is a bone problem because it feels tight in the back. Finally, consultation to the orthopedics department is recommended for surgery. But my mother still did not dare and finally asked for physiotherapy alone. Is this physiotherapy the right way to help chest pain in my mother? Please advise without an operation. thanks.
Hello Citra, thank you for consulting with us at HealthReplies.com.
Spinal surgery is a surgery on the spine whose aim is to treat pain that occurs in the spine or back. The type of surgery performed depends on the type of illness suffered by the patient.
Generally doctors who have suggested surgery should know that treatment using a drug regimen and physiotherapy does not help too much in reducing the pain that arises. Because the original cause of the pain that arises is not addressed properly and appropriately, so that when the drug is taken and physiotherapy has been done the pain only decreases or disappears for a moment and will reappear when the active period of the drug in the body has disappeared and the effects of physiotherapy have begun to decrease.
Moreover, by consuming drugs continuously, it will certainly have an impact on kidney function if it is not accompanied by adequate consumption of water, in addition to the pain that is felt continuously or chronic will cause a decrease in quality of life and affect the patient's psychology, so it is not uncommon with chronic illness mental problems or mental disorders such as anxiety disorders, somatoform, insomnia or even depression can appear. So that we can convey, hopefully help.
