Treatment For Chronic
Lower Back Pain
Slipped disc is the most common cause of back pain. In the U.S., it costs the health care system more than US$50 billion annually. It can happen to anyone, especially athletes with intense training programmes, and can severely hinder their sports performance. If left untreated, they can be out of action for months.
When slipped disc happens, it can cause various symptoms ranging from pain to weakness and numbness. Take note of any pain after an extended period of standing or sitting. Get yourself diagnosed as soon as you feel pain or numbness, especially at your limbs.
Scoliosis can be simply defined as the spine bending towards left or right side abnormally and it can range from moderate to severe. Typically when you look at the x-ray from the back view, it will appear to an S Shape. While any part of the spine can be affected, the most common regions are the chest area (thoracic scoliosis) or the lower part of the back (lumbar scoliosis).
Scoliosis is typically seen more often in young girls and boys. As they age, the curvature can progress even worse. It is best to try to resolve the situation early on rather than just waiting to see if it will clear up on its own.
Treatment For Scoliosis
There are many causes of scoliosis:
- Congenital scoliosis – A bone abnormality that is present at birth
- Neuromuscular scoliosis – A result of abnormal muscles or nerves.
- Degenerative scoliosis – These may result from injuries that have been sustained over the years. These conditions can range from traumatic to illness related. Those who also have osteoporosis may be susceptible to scoliosis
- Idiopathic scoliosis. This is the most common of all scoliosis. This simply means that there is an unidentifiable cause. Some theories exist that it could be inherited.
