Scoliosis in Adults
Scoliosis is a long-standing issue involving the curvature of the spine that often does not always just appear during adulthood. In most cases, it can be a progressive condition that persists from childhood. Other causes of scoliosis in adults are either of unknown cause or due to degeneration of the spinal disks and compression fractures. Since the spine is not straight as it should be, the unnatural posture alone is enough to cause aches and pain such as in the back. The pain and alteration of the spine can also set back full range of motion, affecting physical activity and increasing exertion. These difficulties may affect adults in their everyday lives from taking care of their family to being able to complete work without having to think about their movement or discomfort each step of the way.
Complications associated with Scoliosis in Adults
Our spine is responsible for the fluid mobility and balance of our body, and scoliosis can compromise these things. The spinal curvature can also cause deformity of the trunk
where one shoulder may be higher or lower than the other or the hips may take on an “S” shape. If the curvature of the spine extends to 30-40 degrees, a hump may be prominent. The appearance of these signs will differ for everyone based on its level of severity and location. Scoliosis can also bring about bladder and bowel dysfunction, muscle spasms, numbness, tingling, and motor dysfunction. These complications, including pain, are neurological issues too as the brain and spine work closely together. Managing these symptoms is possible.
Options Today to Ease Scoliosis
Getting the spine as straight as possible can only be done through braces and surgery, and results var
y case by case. Other options for treating scoliosis help treat the symptoms rather than addressing the spine. Correcting the spine and managing the symptoms are equally important for those who have it. Non-surgical options for those with scoliosis aside from physical therapy, exercise, and medication are use of moist heat, aromatherapy and chiropractic treatments. A combination of these methods may be used to help get rid of discomfort and slow down or stop the progressive curvature of the spine.
