Posture Is Not Symmetrical Between Right And Left With A History Of Falling?
Good afternoon. I want to ask. I used to fall from a height in a sitting position when I was little. So now I’m in the 3rd grade of high school. I see that my back growth isn’t the same as the one on the right, which is fuller than the one on the left. the one on the right is a little lower, so it’s not balanced. Why is that? I’m afraid of where I am now. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Falling in a sitting position, if it involves height or speed, has the potential to cause injury to the buttocks, pelvis, and spine. Depending on the severity and mechanism of the injury, this can be mild but can also be serious and require further medical treatment.
The asymmetrical posture between the right and left sides that you are currently experiencing may have something to do with your previous history of injury. This is possible if the injury is severe enough to cause joint dislocations, fractures, and so on. This change certainly does not occur suddenly at your current age as an adult. Rather, it has occurred since the injury occurred, but the changes may not be so noticeable that they are not noticed. If your complaints are purely the result of post-injury effects, then chances are, in addition to an asymmetrical posture, you will also experience various other complaints, such as pain, difficulty walking, impaired bowel movements, impaired sensation (eg numbness, tingling), and so on.
In addition to the post-injury effects, your asymmetrical body shape may also be due to other causes, such as scoliosis (abnormal sideways curvature of the spine), bone growth disorders (e.g. due to malnutrition, autoimmune diseases, thyroid gland disorders), congenital abnormalities (congenital birth), and so on. Activities that are more dominant on one side of the body can also cause different muscle and fat deposition between the right and left sides.
Therefore, to overcome your fear, you should immediately see a doctor for a more objective evaluation. That way, if an abnormality is suspected, further examination can be carried out, for example through X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and so on. What kind of treatment will be given by the doctor will be adjusted to the condition that underlies your complaint.
Hope it helps ya..
