Scoliosis of the spine: Treatment, Symptoms and Causes
Scoliosis is a complex deformation of the spine, in which there is a lateral curvature in the posterior planes and a spliced rotation of the spinal column around the axis. There is generally two (2) types of scoliosis: Congenital and idiopathic scoliosis.

Congenital scoliosis occurs when it is born with a structural deviation of the spine. Your back will turn left or right from birth. However, it often begins to be visible only at the age of 2 to 5 years, and sometimes even in early adolescence. The cause of congenital scoliosis is unclear. It is basically hereditary and causes the bones (spines) inside the spine to fuse and then continue to grow crookedly.

Early diagnosis of congenital scoliosis can be carried out with a positive effect on the growth of the spine. However, this is a complex procedure and you should think seriously because surgical intervention can affect the quality of your life. Always look for more than one medical opinion.

Congenital scoliosis also leads to disorders in the balance of the muscles that surround the spine. All physical treatment is aimed at relieving symptoms in most cases (management), unless the surgical intervention has been successful with structural adjustment. I believe that early physiotherapy after surgery is necessary to effectively manage congenital scoliosis.

On the other hand, an idiopathic scoliosis is a place where spinal turns develop after an injury or after a disease. Most idiopathic scoliosis can be corrected by scoliosis physiotherapy and another related scoliosis. However, when scoliosis is not treated for more than a few weeks, complete recovery may become increasingly difficult. There are many causes of scoliosis, and the diagnosis of the cause of scoliosis is the most important to alleviate this condition of the spine. Be sure to get specialized medical and physiotherapeutic help as soon as possible.

Symptoms may include:
• When you lean forward, the curvature of the spine is more pronounced.
• Shoulder is taller than that.
• Waist is sloping to the side.
• Uneven spaces between the belly and the arms.

Causes of Scoliosis
The reason for most of the curvature of the spine is unfortunately not known. However, scientific research says that about two cases of scoliosis in 10 cases have a known cause.

Here are some reasons:
• Degenerative diseases of the joints.
• Nervous disorders (neuromuscular diseases)
• There are inequalities in the length of the legs.
• During the first three to six weeks, there is a deformation of the spine in the uterus

It is difficult to predict the treatment results of scoliosis, whose effectiveness is dependent on the patient. Light-to-moderate intensity exercise like clinical pilates is strongly recommended for scoliosis treatment, as pilates exercises can target those who have reduced flexibility of the spinal cord. If you suffer from chronic pain and discomfort, undergoing professional scoliosis physiotherapy treatment could be the best non-surgical option for you, reducing the curvature of the spinal cord from this disease. Effective scoliosis treatment will be different for every patient, so it’s important to make sure you are examine by a professional who specialises in this area so that you’re getting the best advice and treatment possible for your unique situation.

In addition to proper treatment, patients with scoliosis should exercise as much as possible and maintain the ideal weight. The pain of scoliosis can be relieved by strengthening the muscles of the abdominal and paraspinal muscles. There are exercises that can strengthen weak muscles, ligaments and tendons and stabilize the spine. If your occupation requires you to be sitting down for long periods, support your lower back with a pillow or cushion. Be careful not to strain your back when picking up objects and take all precautions when you carryout activities that put pressure on your spine.
