If You Have This Sort Of Curve At Your Back Then You Have To See A Physical Therapist

A lot of us are well aware of the discrepancies that are between each and every person in this world. We may sometimes think that because we are of the same weight, height or Body Mass Index(BMI) with other persons, it means that we are the same or we share the same features as they also do. In some cases, that may be true since the people may possess the same or almost the same molecular or genetic make up. Things that take place inside one's body are the signs that we see on the outside of the person's body. That is why drugs are taken into the body mostly since they make changes to many internal structures which will in turn keep one healthy and strong.

There is a condition known as Scoliosis. This is a condition of the spine of human being whether male or female in which the spine takes a lateral or sideways turn. It is not a normal thing to happen always. It can occur as a result of congenital defect, neuromuscular conditions, limb length or even osteoporosis.

The curve usually takes an S- or C -shape. With this condition, a lot of the people may have it for a long time but may not realize until they start having complications at their backs and go for check ups. Mostly we notice it by doing a physical examination of the person's back to check for malalignment or improper back posture. The condition can go from being mild to becoming very severe.

Physical Therapy can be of help to persons who have this conditions. After the General practitioner refers the case to the Physical Therapist, the patient becomes the full responsibility of the Physical Therapist. Treatment will be aimed at correcting the curvature of the spine and in doing so, the patient regains the ability to smoothly perform his or her activities of daily living. Exercise therapy is one of the best ways to help correct scoliosis.
