What not to do when scoliosis, the main contraindications for this pathology

Hello! I would be very grateful if you tell me what not to do when scoliosis, as very often feel throughout the day back pain, although not lift weights and try to move a lot. On the recommendation of a neurologist periodically I get diclofenac intramuscularly. However, treatments only relieve pain for a few days.


Good day. Unfortunately, the walk also load the muscles of the back. If you all day on your feet, in the evening probably a growing pain. In patients with 2nd degree scoliosis pain syndrome has also been observed in the morning, as the spinous processes of the vertebrae when you sleep on a hard bed should be compressed.

Please note! Intense exercise for scoliosis is prohibited as part of physical therapy, and when a man exercises in home conditions.

This is also necessary in order to establish the individual characteristics of the disease and to determine the correct tactics of treatment.
