Can Scoliosis Come Back After Surgery?

Can Scoliosis Come Back After Surgery?

January 25, 2024

For those who have bravely confronted scoliosis head-on, through surgical intervention, the prospect of it returning is nothing short of a nightmare.

The expectation for many after surgery is lasting relief, a permanent straightening, and an end to the battle of a curved spine.

The truth?

This isn’t always the case. The important thing to remember?

It’s not the surgeon’s fault.

The fault often lies with body compensations.

In this blog you will delve into scoliosis, and how you can treat it.

Even after a “failed surgery”.

Let’s get into it.

Understanding Scoliosis

At its core, scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that turns from the natural straight vertical line.

The spine twists and curves either to the right or left, causing an evident physical deformity, often accompanied by pain

While there are multiple reasons one might develop scoliosis, including trauma, and certain diseases, its exact cause remains unknown in many cases.

Even a slight alteration in our spine’s shape can disrupt our overall bodily functions.

When one undergoes surgery, the primary goal is to rectify this spinal curve.

Yet, despite a surgeon’s best efforts, post-surgical complications, or the resurgence of scoliosis, isn’t always a testament to surgical inadequacy.

More often, it’s an indication of untreated body compensations.

The Underlying Issue: Body Compensations

When our bodies are faced with discomfort or dysfunction, it seeks ways to compensate.

These compensations are often subtle and small in posture, weight distribution, or movement patterns to reduce the stress or pain in a particular region.

While they might offer temporary relief, they can result in long-term imbalances and asymmetries in the body.

However, help is available.

A Holistic Approach With Manual Physical Therapy

Even if body compensations have struck after surgery, this can still be fixed.

Enter the realm of manual physical therapy, a holistic approach focused on aligning and balancing the body, addressing the root causes rather than just symptoms.

Identifying and Rectifying Compensations:

A trained physical therapist meticulously analyzes your posture, movement, and overall physical behavior.

The objective is to recognize those subtle compensations that might be contributing to your spinal issues.

Once identified, the therapy aims to correct these imbalances, ensuring that every part of your body works as it should.

Restorative Techniques For Symmetry

Our bodies inherently seek balance.

Manual physical therapy, with its tailored techniques, aids in restoring this balance.

By focusing on the body’s inherent symmetry, it endeavors to establish a more harmonious and coordinated physical state.

The Total Body Experience

One significant aspect of manual physical therapy is the “Total Body Stretch.”

This isn’t about isolated solutions but addressing the body as an integrated whole.

Imagine a session where every muscle and joint is catered to, ensuring that the entire system functions in tandem. This holistic technique is about not only alleviating pain but also reacquainting the body with its intrinsic rhythmic capabilities.

While the return of scoliosis post-surgery can be disheartening, it’s crucial to recognize that solutions exist.

Manual physical therapy offers a promising avenue, addressing underlying issues that often go unnoticed.

It’s a gentle reminder that healing is a journey, and with the right guidance, a pain-free, balanced life is attainable.
