I've found that Ibuprofen works better for my scoliosis. I believe that is because it reduces inflammation, whereas Tylenol doesn't. Also, heating pads have become my best friend But ice works better for some people. Or you can alternate between ice and heat. Also, physical therapy works well for pain management for some.
thanks, yeah i thought the fact that reducing inflammation might help since I can imagine my muscles are inflamed. And youre right, I dont know what I would do without a heating pad haha. I tried physical therapy but I don't think they really knew how to help me, since they deal often with sports injuries not chronic pain.
Physical Therapy didn't work for me either but I've heard it works well for some people. I think it really depends on the therapist, if they know what they're doing! Did you have surgery for the scoliosis or not?
