I may be biased.....but massage therapy and maybe a chiropractor. I used to work on a woman every week or two with scoliosis. It was just in her thoracic region, starting at T1-maybe T7. Since the spine is not aligned properly it makes the muscles one side of the curve bunched up, and the muscles on the other side of the curve stretched out. In her it caused trigger points, spots on the nerve that get hypersensitive, those trigger points also caused her to have migraines....which would just tighten her up even more. I would never be able to "fix" her, I could relieve her problems for a bit, but since I couldn't straighten out her spine it was an ongoing issue. I was just maintanence really.Well, to clarify, here is some background on my problem. I was born with mild scoliosis and Klippel-Feil Syndrome. I do not have a normal type of scoliosis. On my back, my spine curves one way and then the bones fuse and then curves the opposite way and then fuses and then curves and straighten up at the bottom of my spine. I also am missing 4 out of the 7 vertebrae that you should have in your neck.
I do notice that my back and neck hurt more when I sit for long periods. I try not to sit for too long, but when I am in school, I don't have control over that sadly. :/
Sadly, the last time I spoke to my doctor, they said my scoliosis is "not bad enough" to warrant surgery and that is when they suggested physical therapy. I tried it and it really helped, but I think the most helpful part was the ultrasounds that they performed on my back to loosen the muscles and pressure buildups. I can't get physical therapy anymore though because of my insurance. It's hard enough getting a doctors appointment that doesn't take 3 months. :/
I've been think about getting a new computer chair but the good ones that are actually helpful are too expensive, but if you know of any good non-expensive ones you can let me know.
Too bad you don't live by me. The clinic I work at has a doctor you could go see, he would "prescribe" massage therapy, it's all covered by insurance the patients just pay copays, and most come every single week.
