How to treat pain due to scoliosis?

I have pain due to scoliosis. At times of pain I take Etoshine MR. Some times I have to take it for upto 5 days or in extreme cases 10 days. Often for just a day or two. Is it ok if I stop with a few tabs? Is there a recommended dosage? Is it an anti- biotic to be taken for a minimum period? Venkatesan

Hello,

For scoliosis pain, I will advise taking a short course of the anti-inflammatory drug.

Having a temporary kneading massage will be good. It would have been great if x-ray reports were shared or at least the level at which the scoliosis is formed and the angle of it.

I will advise indulging in regular breathing exercises because due to scoliosis the respiratory system may get compromise and make more prone to respiratory problems.

Also, doing exercises for the spinal muscle strengthening, correction of scoliosis by posture, activating the muscle which is affected will be helpful.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
