4 Tips to Treat Adult Degenerative Scoliosis Naturally

For many adults over 55, each morning can be a stark reminder of the challenges posed by scoliosis.

The simple act of getting out of bed can be marred by a sharp reminder of your condition.

As the day progresses, what should be routine activities – walking, standing, or even preparing dinner – can become daunting tasks.

The once simple chores like vacuuming or sweeping might now trigger discomfort or pain.

It’s not just the physical strain; it’s the emotional weight of feeling limited in your own body, a feeling that often goes unnoticed by others.

But help is available.

In this blog, you are going to explore the causes of adult degenerative scoliosis, the symptoms, and four proven tips to treat it naturally.

Understanding Adult Degenerative Scoliosis:

Adult degenerative scoliosis is more than just a curved spine; it’s a condition that can significantly impact your daily life.

As we age, our bodies naturally undergo wear and tear, and for some, this can lead to a curvature of the spine that wasn’t present in earlier years.

This curvature can cause not just pain but also a range of symptoms like uneven shoulders, a noticeable lean to one side, and even breathing difficulties in severe cases.

But here’s an important reminder: you’re not alone, and help is available.

Recognizing the signs and understanding your condition is the first step toward managing it effectively.

Targeted Physical Therapy for Adult Scoliosis:

Physical therapy for adult scoliosis is tailored to each individual’s unique spinal curvature and symptoms. A personalized treatment plan typically includes the following:

Specialized Strengthening Exercises:

These exercises focus on reinforcing the muscles that support your spine, especially the core muscles. Strengthening these muscles is crucial for improving both stability and posture.

  • Flexibility Routines: Incorporating routines that enhance spinal flexibility can greatly reduce stiffness and discomfort. These routines are designed to make your spine more pliable and less prone to pain.
  • Spinal Decompression Techniques: With a therapist’s guidance, certain techniques can elongate the spine, providing much-needed relief from compression-related discomfort.
  • Balance Training: Scoliosis can often affect balance. Specific exercises aimed at improving coordination can significantly reduce the risk of falls by enhancing overall balance.

Posture Correction and Ergonomics:

Effective ergonomics involves more than just ergonomic chairs; it’s about how you interact with your environment to minimize spinal stress:

  • Workstation Setup: This involves arranging your desk, chair, and computer in a way that reduces spinal stress. Adjusting the chair height, using footrests, and ergonomic keyboards can be part of this setup.
  • Proper Lifting Techniques: Learning and practicing proper lifting techniques is crucial. This involves using your legs for lifting, not your back, to avoid unnecessary strain.
  • Posture Awareness Training: Becoming more conscious of your posture throughout the day can significantly reduce the stress placed on your spine.

Regular Low-Impact Exercise:

Incorporating low-impact exercises into your daily routine is vital for maintaining spinal health:

  • Walking: This simple exercise can be performed anywhere and is effective in promoting cardiovascular health without over-straining the spine.
  • Swimming and Water Aerobics: The buoyancy provided by water supports your body, thereby reducing spinal pressure. These activities are excellent for both pain relief and muscle strengthening.
  • Tai Chi or Yoga: These practices, focusing on gentle movements, stretching, and breathing, aid in maintaining flexibility and reducing stress.

Pain Management Strategies:

Managing pain effectively is essential for enhancing the quality of life for those with adult degenerative scoliosis:

  • Heat Therapy: Applying heat to the affected area can relax muscle tension and improve blood flow, providing temporary pain relief.
  • Gentle Massage: Targeted massage therapy can help alleviate muscle tightness around the spine. It’s important to find a therapist experienced with scoliosis.
  • Mindfulness and Meditation: Engaging in mindfulness and meditation can be beneficial in managing the psychological aspects of chronic pain, helping to reduce stress and enhance overall well-being.
