Correct massage for scoliosis
Spinal curvature disrupts posture, internal organs work, causes pain
One of the most common methods of treating scoliosis in people of any age is a back massage. Its effectiveness depends on the professionalism of the masseuse and the degree of development of the disease. As a rule, massage with scoliosis is used in conjunction with other methods of treatment, which include swimming, physiotherapy, special exercises on simulators, exercise therapy. Such manual therapy helps relieve tension and strengthen the muscles of the back by improving blood circulation in tissues. In order to understand how therapeutic massage works, it is necessary to understand the peculiarities of the disease.
Scoliosis is the curvature of the spine in the side. It is believed that in the modern world, this disease affects almost every person. Associate this phenomenon with the fact that people do little physical labor, spend a lot of time in a fixed position and in the wrong posture. Television, computers, cars have become an integral part of human life, taking away the most valuable for health - movement.
But experienced doctors and scientists disagree with this. They refer this disease to the peculiarities of the physiological development of a person, caused with genetic causes. It is also believed that scoliosis is any deviation from the correct position of the spine, characterized by pain symptoms. Often such deviations can be determined only after a special survey.
Types and forms of curvature
To ensure that the patient has scoliosis, a routine radiographic examination is used. Radiography also reveals the degree of curvature. Curvature of the 1st degree is a deviation away from the direct axis of the spinal column by 1-10 °, the 2nd degree by 11-25 °, the 3rd degree by 26-50 °.
Degrees of development of the spine disease
There are 3 types of the disease.
- Functional scoliosis is the development of curvature due to other health problems such as dysplasia( different leg lengths), spasms in the back muscles and the like.
- Neuromuscular scoliosis is the appearance of curvature due to the presence of various genetic diseases, congenital anomalies, in which the spine is incorrectly or not fully formed. These are such ailments as infantile cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy. For this type of disease is characterized by elongated C-shaped curvature, weakness of the muscular corset around the spine. This type of curvature of the back in scoliosis in a newborn is considered congenital and requires active treatment.
- Scoliosis is degenerative - a curvature caused by inflammatory processes in vertebral joints, weakness of ligaments and soft tissues of the spine against the background of the appearance of bone formations( osteophytes).This type of curvature can be found in people of different age groups.
What are the forms of curvature
There are different forms of curvature of the spine:
- C-shaped, having 1 arc of curvature;
- S-shaped - 2 arcs;
- Σ-shaped - 3 arcs of curvature.
According to the location of the curvature, scoliosis is divided into 5 varieties according to the departments of the spinal column: cervicothoracic, thoracic, thoracolumbar, lumbar, lumbosacral.
Scoliosis may appear due to a number of other diseases, such as osteoporosis, intervertebral disc disease, oncology. The cause of the development of the disease can be various injuries, including a fracture of the spine. With such serious violations and diseases, therapeutic massage is applied only during the rehabilitation period.
How to make a massage
To cure a scoliosis with a massage, you need to find a qualified specialist. At the same time, it is necessary to have the doctor's instructions indicating the degree and shape of the curvature of the spine. The specialist must see and understand which muscles are strained and which ones are relaxed. At a curvature of a backbone always there is a convex and concave part of a back. If one of them is tense, then the other is relaxed.
It is very good to periodically diagnose muscle tension when performing therapeutic massage. This is due to the fact that the muscles with time strengthened or become less stressed. If one does the same manipulations all the time, it can provoke inflammation of one or another muscle. You should always pay attention to the sensations of the patient with a massage.
Therapeutic massage for scoliosis is carried from the legs to the top of the back. With each type of scoliosis, a special technique is used, aimed at correcting this or that part of the back. Each procedure begins with stroking. With a C-shaped curvature in the thoracic area, therapeutic massage is first done on the concave side, and then goes over to the convex side. Straightforward movements knead muscles located between the ribs.Circular movements are used for wide and long muscles. The trapezius muscle and cervical region are kneaded at the end. The intensity and duration of manipulation at each site should be the same. The purpose of the first session of therapeutic massage is maximum relaxation of the muscles, especially the convex part of the curvature of the spine and cervical region. The following sessions should be aimed at strengthening and stimulating the muscles of the concave part of the back. It is necessary to pay attention to relaxing the muscles of the chest for and strengthening - the abdomen.
With C-shaped curvature of the spine in the lumbar region, a therapeutic massage with squeezing techniques is used. Massage first the concave side of the back, then the convex one. Then, wide and long muscles are kneaded, after which they move to the intercostal muscles. The lumbar region is massaged with circular and rectilinear movements. Then go to the pelvic area, where they do the squeezing, knead the sacrum and the crest of the ilium. Near the end of the massage, they return to the convex part of the back, pressure is applied to it. In massage feet, from the hip and ending with the shin from 2 sides.
For S- and Σ-shaped curvatures of the spine, massage is performed using the same techniques as in the C-shaped bend. Particular attention is paid to the lumbar and thoracic parts of the back.
Massage at home in scoliosis in children
It is better for an adult to seek help from qualified specialists even at the 1 st degree of scoliosis, since with age, the recovery processes are more difficult. Different types of massage for scoliosis in children can be done at home. The fact that the child's body is very quickly restored.
Parents can massage themselves from a 1 degree curvature, but only under the supervision of the attending physician. To do this, you need to study medical literature, take massage courses for scoliosis. Video training can be included in each procedure to properly maintain the intensity of action and to orientate on time.
The child should talk about his feelings with these manipulations. Often, massage specialists can specifically do their work poorly to increase the number of sessions and earn more money. In such a situation, it is better to invest in training and to treat children with your own hands than to pay a lot of money to an outsider, whose services you can not be sure of.
A parent who himself does massage to his child, can at any time help him, if suddenly there is a pain syndrome. Thus, it is also possible to control the tactics of treating a doctor, which will facilitate a speedy recovery.

You can perform not only rectilinear, but also circular, and various zigzag movements with a medical jar. Massage lasts 5-15 minutes, after which the can is removed, and the remaining oil is removed with a napkin.
It's no wonder that acupressure nowadays is increasingly used directly for the treatment of scoliosis. This method is connected with the general theory of point theory.
In our body, as you know, there are simply a huge number of points that are interrelated with certain organs. If the organ is healthy, the point on a particular site will be painless, and vice versa.
To cope with the disease, you need to know exactly the points on the body and their meaning.

Acupressure requires specific knowledge and professionalism.
The course of any massage in adults and children is 10-20 days and depends on the degree of curvature of the spine. In a month or half a year the doctor prescribes a second course of medical massage.

With a little longer or too often, the effectiveness of the massage is gradually reduced.
It should be borne in mind that in scoliosis, massage is performed in conjunction with exercise therapy. Physical exercises are selected individually and performed daily or several times in 7 days.

One of the most common forms of ailment is scoliosis of the thoracic spine.
For patients in this group who have a C-shaped deformation, the specialists suggest the following massage technique: 1. The patient lies on the abdomen, the head is turned towards the vertex of the curvature of the spine. An ankle is placed under the ankle joints. The masseur performs stroking long movements all over his back, affecting only the superficial muscles.2. Next comes the classical differential massage( relaxing at the concave part of the arc and tonic at the convex).3. The patient rolls over on his side, lying on the table with the side with which the thoracic spine is concave. In this position, deep intervertebral muscles relax, the pathological arc is additionally affected by the force of gravity, facilitating the straightening of the vertebrae. The specialist massages the waist and buttocks.4. The patient lies on his back, hands along the body. The masseur rubs and kneads the intercostal and pectoral muscles.5. After several sessions begin to apply reflex-segmental massage techniques. By influencing the places of exit of nerve fibers from the spinal cord, the specialist removes pathological changes in those segments of the body that are controlled by these fibers. From receptions apply screwing, vibration, displacement-displacement, rubbing-shearing, stretching-stretching. The technique helps to relax the coverslips, correct the position of the scapula, stretch the ligaments, and improve the blood supply to the internal organs.
The first course of this massage is designed to increase the mobility of the spine, relieve stiffness of the muscles, reduce pain syndrome. The intensity of the performance of receptions and the duration of procedures increase from session to session. During manipulation, the appearance of acute pain and bruising is unacceptable. After the procedures, painful sensations in the muscles may appear, which serves as a signal to reduce the intensity of physical influences. Repeated courses should be aimed at consolidating the achieved effect.
Choosing a specialist for massage
There is an opinion that orthopedic massage can be performed by almost any masseur or physiotherapist. It's a delusion. The use of manual techniques in scoliosis requires the master to have a thorough knowledge of the clinic of the disease, experience and perfect technique. Illiterate actions on the spine, muscles, ligaments can lead not only to deterioration, but also to trauma. Therefore, before enrolling for a course, the patient should inquire about the degree of qualification of a specialist in the field of orthopedic massage.
A massage for young children should only be performed by a well-trained professional with special knowledge in pediatric anatomy and physiology.
