Excuse me, doctor, I have scoliosis and have been advised to make hanging movements, can hanging can straighten or alleviate scoliosis?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that causes the spine to appear forming the letter S or C. Most cases of scoliosis are unknown (idiopathic). However, in cases where the cause is known, common causes include congenital abnormalities (eg spina bifida), neurological abnormalities (eg cerebral palsy), genetic abnormalities (eg muscular dystrophy), spinal cord injury, and infections in the spine spine. Establishing a diagnosis of scoliosis requires a physical examination directly by a doctor, supported by additional examinations, such as X-rays, MRI, CT-scan, or bone scan.
Handling of scoliosis cases needs to consider the patient's age, number and type of spinal arches, as well as the type of scoliosis (for example structural or non-structural). The main options for treating scoliosis are the use of braces and surgery. To date, there are no valid clinical guidelines or clinical trials that prove or recommend body hanging exercises for scoliosis treatment.
If you have problems with spinal curvature, we recommend that you see a doctor or orthopedic specialist so you can do the necessary evaluation and treatment. If there is pain, for the time being you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, for example: paracetamol, at a dosage following the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
