Scoliosis Awareness

How Pilates Exercises Can Help Scoliosis

Over the years it has become increasing apparent that no two spines are alike. Scoliosis is more common than people realize. Sometimes we’re born with scoliosis (idiopathic scoliosis). Sometimes we acquire it through poor postural habits, accidents, leg length discrepancies i.e. functional scoliosis.

Functional scoliosis is treatable because it’s created through poor bio-mechanics and repeated incorrect movement patterns. A great way to find length on the convex side of your spine is through Pilates exercises. By stretching and breathing into those tight muscles we’re able to create length and opportunity for the spine to move into place. Over time it’s possible to truly help people with functional scoliosis. Find out more and watch the video below.
