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:

What is causing my hand numbness?

A:

Numbness in your hands can be caused by something like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which involves the nerve running to your hand through your wrist being pressed on (often by swelling caused by repetitive use of the hands). If you are waking with numb hands in the morning, or have numbnesss after elevating your hands, there could be other causes related to your symptoms.

Q:

What is the survival rate for people with melanoma?

A:

For people with melanoma skin cancer, 1 in 10 will die from the condition. That being said, if a melanoma skin cancer is detected early and treated quickly with surgery, the cure rate is very good at 9 in 10 patients. If you have a spot or mole that is changing in appearance, size and/or colour, you should have this checked with your doctor.
