Scoliosis

alt

scoliosis is a  condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side. the spine of an individual with scoliosis look like an "S" or a "C"

Signs and symptoms

  • Uneven musculature on one side of the spine
  • Uneven hips / leg lengths
  • Slow nerve action 

Causes

Congenital , Cereberal palsy, muscular dystrophy, physical trauma, neuromuscular

Complications

Inflammation of the soft tissue or deep inflammatory processes, breathing impairments, bleeding and nerve injuries. surgery remains primarily a cosmetic indication especially in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, the most common form of scoliosis never exceeding 80°.

Prognosis

Larger curves carry a higher risk of progression than smaller curves, thoracic and double primary curves carry a higher risk of progression than single lumbar or thoracolumbar curves. Patients who have not yet reached skeletal maturity have a higher likelihood of progression (if the patient has not yet completed the adolescent growth)

Ayurvedic Treatment

Here we are maintaining the normal curvature of the spine with correcting the lateral deviation of spine, for correcting the deviation the holding muscles should be relaxed and then correct the normal curvature of the spine using bandages, then the muscles should be strengthened to hold the spine, special external treatments are needed for this.
