Therapy for scoliosis

Therapy for scoliosis

scoliosisSevere cases of scoliosis can lead to diminishing lung capacity, putting pressure on the heart and restricting physical activities. Depending on the severity of the condition, it may result to difficulty in breathing, fatigue and pain.

Curves are a normal part of the spine’s structure, scoliosis being a condition where there are abnormal curvatures:

  • Uneven musculature on one side of the spine
  • A rib prominence or a prominent shoulder blade, caused by rotation of the ribcage in thoracic scoliosis
  • Uneven hips, arms or leg lengths
  • Slow nerve action (in some cases)

During your adolescent years, you may have recalled your mother’s marching orders to stand up or sit straight. For most of us all that isn’t really a problem. However, for individuals suffering from scoliosis, this can be a very frustrating experience.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for scoliosis, but the good news are that there are several treatment modalities that can help alleviate the symptoms and reduce the progression of the problem, massage therapy being one of them.

Massage therapy helps reducing the pain and pressure in the spinal column, improving flexibility, reducing the level of stress that accompanies the said condition and relaxing the surrounding areas. Actually it clears the mind and allows the body to proceed with the healing process.

Depending on the cause and severity of your condition you most likely need several massage sessions in order to help you find relief. Deep tissue massage for instance provides relief reducing pressure on the spinal column. Massage therapy will not take the place of traditional treatments but it can be used as a complementary therapy to reduce the symptoms related to this condition.
