Scoliosis, or the sideways curvature of the spine, can cause back pain. The medical community has struggled to find an effective treatment for this type of pain, with most doctors believing that surgery is the only way to reduce the curvature.
Fortunately, there is scoliosis treatment in Singapore that not only eases the pain of scoliosis but actually reduce the curvature as well.
While some people with scoliosis experience no symptoms, others may experience back pain, neck pain, headaches, and difficulty walking or standing for long periods of time, reproductive dysfunction and difficulty breathing.
The symptoms depend largely on the location and degree of curvature, but also on your behaviors. If your head is off-center or one shoulder or hip is higher than the other, you may have scoliosis.

Some are treated in adolescence with bracing and surgery to reduce the spinal curvature, while others go untreated. Adults who experience scoliosis pain may feel it from muscles, spinal discs or both.
The muscles of the back trying to pull the spine back into alignment so they can return to their normal length and tension. These muscles are constantly overworked, trying to support the upper body without a stable spine to help.
The discs of a curved spine also undergo asymmetric loading, which can cause bulging and herniation. These disc problems are often associated with nerve impingement, causing sharp, traveling pain.
Adults may have scoliosis from birth or may acquire it due to osteoarthritis (if one side of the spine’s joints deteriorates faster than those on the other side). Those who acquire it will have added pain due to joint inflammation and friction.
