Scoliosis Reality Part 1 (plz share this)
The reality of scoliosis is that you have it for life and it will get worse over time if not intelligently addressed.
Bracing and surgery are not a cure.
Many people come to us with little knowledge of their curve pattern and in pain because their scoliosis is progressing despite wearing a brace as a child, getting a brace as an adult, or having had fusion surgery.
Normal exercise like gym class, sports, weightlifting, yoga and even just walking can make the condition worse if one does not understand how to train to work against the momentum of scoliosis and the misalignments it creates.
Doing PT with and/or getting orthotics from someone who is not trained to work with scoliosis can worsen your condition.
Scoliosis can impact the quality of life with limited activity, pain, digestive difficulty, reduced respiratory and heart function, and diminished self-esteem.
Why is our curve specific scoliosis exercise effective?
We teach you about your specific curve pattern and make you aware of the habitual destructive movement patterns that your scoliosis is creating that will lead to pain and injury not only in the back but in feet, knees, hips, shoulders and neck.
We give you exercises specific to your curve pattern which will realign your spine and body.
These exercises will also build strength so you can restrain the momentum of your curve pattern and hold improved alignment.
At My Back and Body Clinic, we have found the combination of our curve specific scoliosis exercise while using the power of the ARPwave PRS (Personal Recovery System) to be a highly effective part of our scoliosis program which can help those near or far from our studio. The ARPwave PRS enhances the effectiveness of our curve specific exercise sessions and dramatically increases therapy time well beyond exercise sessions as it can be used during sleep.
There is hope but the earlier it is addressed the better. If a school or doctor says 'let's watch the progression of the Scoliosis', don't wait!! Knowledge is Power in this case.
More on this next time....
