Hip joint not moving sideways. Ankle joint not flexing upwards. Severe scoliosis of spine. Had childhood paralysis. Suggestions?

Hi - I have a left hip joint that will not move out sideways or rotate effectively. I also have a left ankle joint that will not flex upwards. This is coupled with severe scoliosis of the spine . I m 52 and all this results from childhood paralysis at the age of 11 (similar to polio ). As I age this is causing me increasing mobility issues

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Since scoliosis is from childhood , so abnormalities are bound to happen .
As age progresses this deformities ( bending of spinal cord on lateral side) become more prominent .
Only suitable belt will help , but not a treatment.
Only muscle relaxant and pain killer will give you some relief.
An orthopaedic surgeon may help, so consult the same.
Good luck.
