Q:

How can physiotherapy help my scoliosis?

A:

Depending on the symptoms you are experiencing with your scoliosis, a Physiotherapist may be very helpful in your treatment plan. A physiotherapist who is experienced in working with scoliosis can help you work on your posture and strength through appropriate exercises, and can also assist with pain relief. Aside from Physiotherapists, you may also benefit from working with an Occupational Therapist or Chiropractor. Speak with your rheumatologist to see if you should consider these therapists.

Q:

How can constipation affect my health?

A:

Aside from the emotional stress and anxiety chronic constipation can cause, it can also negatively affect your health. If you are not having regular, normal bowel movements, there can be issues with absorption of nutrition in your body and this can cause weight loss. You can also experience low iron (or anemia) and possibly blood in the stool. If you are having these symptoms, you should visit your doctor.

Q:

What medications are used for chronic pain?

A:

There are a few classes of drugs used to treat chronic pain. One of them is analgesics, to provide pain relief. These range from acetaminophen all the way up to heavier pain control agents. Some antidepressants are useful in relieving chronic pain, and anticonvulsants may be used to treat nerve-related pain. Finally, a class of medications called cannabinoids, which may include medicinal marijuana, is sometimes used to control pain. You should speak with your doctor if you have questions about your pain management plan.
