With acquired scoliosis
The common scoliosis can be classified as congenital and acquired. Congenital scoliosis is usually found in elementary school health checks when a child is 7 to 8 years old, or it begins in adolescence.As for acquired scoliosis, most of the scoliosis occurs in adults aged 50-60 years old. Most of the scoliosis occurs because of injury or long-term occupation of heavy labor, which causes spinal damage.
Forward tilt + left-right twist = scoliosis
As the name implies, scoliosis is the abnormal inclination of the spine to the left or right. In addition, the entire spine can be twisted. In the treatment, in addition to the correction of the lateral curve, must also take into account the Angle of torsion, can be said to be the "3d" treatment of the spinal cord.
Severe scoliosis can affect the ribs and pelvis, as well as muscles in the back and shoulders that can become stiff and sore. Generally, the Angle of lateral curvature within 15 ° is mild, and physicians usually recommend continuous follow-up observation and physical therapy with the rehabilitator. 15 ° ~ 35 °, must wear the back frame; If the inclination is above 35 °, the physician will cooperate with the patient's symptoms, whether to consider the need for surgery.
Don't worry, pregnant mother
Slight scoliosis is not easy to see in appearance, nor is it an obvious inconvenience in daily life, and must be diagnosed by X-ray.Women who suspect they may have scoliosis should have a pre-pregnancy checkup and take an X-ray before planning a pregnancy.
While most women can afford one or two x-rays during pregnancy, avoid them if you can. If be pregnant hind just suspects oneself to have vertebra scoliosis, unless the symptom is very apparent (if pelvic both sides are not the same tall, the body turns forward, have one side the back is more outstanding wait), do not make the diagnosis of scoliosis in pregnancy as far as possible.
If you know you have scoliosis problems before pregnancy, you can consult an orthopedic doctor or a rehabilitation specialist during the prenatal examination, so that even if you do not have treatment during pregnancy, but can reduce the discomfort and psychological pressure of pregnant mothers.
Large Angle and obvious influence
If you find that you have scoliosis before or during pregnancy, don't worry too much. Firstly, scoliosis will not be inherited. In addition, those with greater lateral curvature are usually treated at puberty.If the Angle of lateral curvature is not big, the impact on pregnancy and childbirth is limited, pregnant mothers do not have to give themselves too much pressure.
Because the scoliosis will press on the chest, the heart and lungs will be affected, plus to supply oxygen and blood to the fetus, the pregnant mother is easy to breathe.Pregnancy is a temporary weight gain and shift in focus, not a long period of heavy labor that worsens scoliosis, but a burden on the spine, so back pain may worsen. At this time suggest pregnant mother to lie flat rest, if the abdomen will be pressed to the body, can lie slightly side, keep breathing smooth, let the spine get support, thereby reducing the burden.
The effect on labor process and postpartum
Side Angle is not big pregnant mother, in the process of pregnancy and childbirth and the general pregnant mother, will not have too much risk; But if the Angle is more than 30 ° pregnant mother will pay attention to! During pregnancy, it is important to explain scoliosis to your obstetrician so that he can make proper arrangements during pregnancy and delivery.
The birth should be discussed with the anesthesiologist
General cesarean section will use half body anesthesia, pregnant mother although not feel pain but consciousness is still clear, for pregnant mother is also a safer way of anesthesia. When hemihalf body anaesthesia, the back of pregnant mother wants arch rise, the body bends into the shape of shrimp rice, again the anaesthesia enters spinal cord cavity in; However, for a pregnant mother with a larger scoliosis Angle, because the spine is not straight, it may not be able to inject anesthetics in the normal way.Often before birth, the ob-gyn will discuss with the orthopedic surgeon and anesthesiologist whether to inject anesthetics under general anesthesia or other alternative methods.
In addition to congenital spinal scoliosis, and some disease is caused by the lateral bending, such as polio, spurs, disc herniation, spine and pelvis related symptoms will make the bone shape variation, the possible causes of the natural production difficulties, the doctors will assess condition, suggested that gave birth to the baby by caesarean section.
Nevertheless, average puerpera calculates the fault that has vertebral lateral curve, do not affect the labor course that produces naturally basically, want pregnant mother nutrition and weight to control only advisable, add correct motion habit, can give birth to darling naturally smoothly.
