Question by Nikita:
Hello. I am 19 years old. I have a S-shaped scoliosis. The curvature of the thoracic – 11 degrees, back – 2 degrees. There is pain in the thoracic region. When tilted, see the right hump on the back at chest level. How can I fix it?
Hello. You may be mistaken when specifying degrees. The first degree of scoliosis is diagnosed when there is a sideways curvature of the spine over 10 degrees. The angle on the radiograph in 2 degrees is the absolute norm.
The Curvature of the 1-St degree in the thoracic region can be cured by strengthening the muscle corset back, swimming lessons, physical therapy. On the website a lot of similar recommendations.
However, you for 19 years, so a significant portion of the cartilaginous system of the spine is transformed into bone. 20-25 years ending completely the ossification of the spine. After that, to correct deformations of the vertebral column is problematic. So you have little time left.
If you want to cure the scoliosis, you need to prepare for regular and prolonged physical activity. This is the only way to fix the asymmetry and hypertonicity back muscles, which bend the spine.
Additionally, you can consider wearing orthopedic corset.
