‘Hunchback no get any mercury’

“Hunchback na scoliosis wey mean say di spine bend somewia and e no get place wia pesin go find mercury or any chemicals inside” na so Dr Golden Owhonda, a public health physician tok.

Dr Owhonda wey be Director of Public Health, Rivers State Ministry of Health say dis kain ignorance wey don lead to di death of dis boy dey very sad and relevant authorities suppose arrest and prosecute di pipo wey dey responsible for manslaughter as na just wickedness.

Dr Owhonda add say mercury itself no dey go well wit di bodi becos na poison on its own, so dem no get any grounds to say dem wan comot Mercury or any oda tin from di hunch.

“Di spine of di pesin wey get hunch back dey curved naim make you dey see di hump becos e dey like sometin wey no fit stand on its own so e go gada dia.

Wetin dey cause hunchback?

According to Dr Owhonda, wetin dey cause hunchback fit be tumor or defects of birth or any oda cause wey cause weakens for di spine wey make am am bend to result to di hump wey be di hunchback.

“Oda times na mineral deficiency wey don make di bones to collapse on each oda like osteoporosis or osteomalasia as dis na tins wey fit make di bones slouch or to collapse on each oda to form hump, becos say di spine for dat area dey weak and e fit bend to di left or right wey be scoliosis or bend inwards wey be scifosis.”

So all dis tin na di orthopaedic and neurologist as nerves de pass thru di spine.

Hunchback dey treatable

Dr Owhonda advise say any pesin wey get hunchback suppose go hospital make di ogbonge doctor – orthopaedic and neurologist examine dem and tell dem di kain treatment dem go neee.

Dis na becos some nerves dey pass thorough di spine, so na im make dem go sidon togeda see how dem go take treat am.

“Di orthopaedic and neurologist go examine di case and decide weda dem go fit operate and put implant to straighten am to make am beta so di pesin fit get back imsef im terms of rehabilitation or di pesin fit wear corset.

Sometimes a corset fit help to pull di pesin strait back on. So dis na tins dem fit do.”

Dr Owhonda say di treatment go depend on wetin di doctors find and e dey start wit x-ray so dem fit see wetin dem dey deal wit.

E add say for any pesin to say e dey look for mercury or any oda tin for pesin wey get hunchback, dat one dey “criminal, unintelligent, ignorant, unacceptable amd dat pesin supposed dey charged for manslaughter.”
