Here’s another edition of Medical Monday, and today we’re talking about the benefits of medical marijuana for scoliosis.
What is scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine, which are usually either S-shaped or C-shaped. In many cases, there are no known causes for the curve, but patients with scoliosis often have many subsequent health issues in addition to the chronic pain which can be extreme.
How can medical marijuana help?
Cannabis has been proven to be an effective method of relieving scoliosis symptoms like pain and inflammation, without the harmful side effects of traditional painkillers.
The benefits of medical marijuana as a pain relief alternative have been well studied by the scientific community. Numerous studies have looked at the use of medical marijuana as a pain relief medication and found the effects of ingesting or inhaling marijuana to be a legitimate and effective pain relief option.
