..::scoliosis::..

assalamualaikum w.b.t

scoliosis - medical condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side. Although it is a complex three-dimensional deformity, on an x-ray, viewed from the rear, the spine of an individual with a typical scoliosis may look more like an "S" or a "C" than a straight line.

causes - adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, there is no clear causal agent and it is generally believed to be multifactorial.

symptoms - In children and teens, scoliosis generally does not cause symptoms and is not obvious until the curve of the spine becomes severe. It may first become noticeable to a parent who observes that the child's clothes do not fit right or that hems hang unevenly. The child's spine may look crooked or the ribs may stick out.

Adults who have scoliosis may or may not have back pain. In most cases where back pain is present, it is hard to know whether scoliosis is the cause. However, if scoliosis in an adult gets worse and becomes severe, it can cause back pain and difficulty breathing.

prevention - Scoliosis cannot be prevented. Treatment is aimed at preventing the curve from getting worse.

effects - As scoliosis gets worse, the bones of the spine rotate toward the inner part of the curve. If the upper part of the spine is affected, the ribs may crowd together on one side of the body and become widely separated on the other side. The curve may force the space between the spinal bones to narrow. The spinal bones may also become thicker on the outer edge of the curve.

In severe curves, misshapen ribs may reduce the amount of air the lungs can hold and may cause the heart to work harder to pump blood through the compressed lung tissue. Over time, this can lead to heart failure.

how to live with scoliosis - Adults who have scoliosis may have back pain. In addition to medication, other steps that help to maintain or promote good health, such as regular exercise and proper back care, may help relieve back pain for some adults.


WHY I POST SOMETHING LIKE THIS? IS IT BECAUSE I AM GOING TO BE A ORTHOPEDIST? NOPE. I'M GOING TO BE A CARDIOTHORACIC SURGEON. BUT WHY I POST SOMETHING LIKE THIS? IT IS BECAUSE SOMEONE CLOSE TO ME IS HAVING THIS CONDITION. I`LL PRAY FOR HIM DAY AND NIGHT SO THAT THIS CONDITION WILL NOT STOP HIM FROM ACHIEVING HIS DREAM THAT IS TO BE A CARDIOTHORACIC SURGEON. THE SAME AMBITION WITH ME? WHAT A COINCIDENCE...

semoga rakan anda tabah mengharungi hidup ini.
hidup tidak selalu indah
langit tak selalu cerah.
suram malam tak berbintang.

Jadilah rumput nan lemah lembut
Tak luruh dipukul ribut
Bagai karang di dasar lautan
Tak terusik dilanda badai
