Scoliosis is a spinal disorder which has been affecting millions of human beings around the world and commonly defined as the abnormal curving of the spine. As the disorder progresses the spine rotates, bends and curves in different directions. It can develop anywhere in the spine but is most commonly seen in the middle side of the back, known as the thoracic area. It is commonly known as Thoracoclumbar scoliosis and not many treatments are available for the disease. In this article we are going to discuss this more in detail along with its herbal treatment that will reduce the progress of disease naturally.
Anatomy of Spine
Our spine is normally divided into three parts including Upper back called the cervical, the thoracic known as middle back and lower back which is the lumbar region. The main function of the spine is protecting the spinal cord, balancing mobility as well as flexibility and also providing the body with stability. Along with that, the brain and spine make the central nervous system of the body. These nerves helped in balancing the spine and maintaining a good posture. Our spine has five curves which are responsible for giving the spine a natural S-shaped curve.
If the patient suffers from Thoracolumbar scoliosis then there will be abnormal curvature in their lower thoracic and upper lumbar regions of the spine. This is known as the combined type of scoliosis where the curve either goes to the left or to the right side. It is seen that in most of the cases with Thoracolumbar scoliosis the spine curves to the right side. It is most commonly seen in women as compared to men and can be idiopathic as well as congenital but sometimes there could be neuromuscular causes.
