Scoliosis; just the pronunciation of the word itself might be confusing to some, let alone what it is, what causes it, and how to treat it. To put it simply, scoliosis is an unnatural curve in the spine. Wait, an unnatural curve in the spine? I thought the spine was supposed to have a little bit of a curve? While it is true that the spine is supposed to have a little bit of a curve, it’s the type of curve that counts. Normally, the spine will curve slightly outward near the upper back, and slightly inward towards the lower back. In doing this, the natural curvature of the spine provides natural back support. In cases of scoliosis, instead of adhering to the natural vertical curvature, the spine also curves laterally, or sideways.
There are many different types of scoliosis, each one of them having a specific cause, however with that being said, each different cause of scoliosis occurs naturally and isn’t a condition that one brings upon oneself.
As there are many different types of scoliosis, there are many different routes of treatment for scoliosis as well. Some forms of scoliosis are more mild or severe than others, so please be careful to seek proper treatment based on the severity of your case. In many cases, a preventative measure that you should consider taking is to strengthen and balance out your back through scoliosis exercises. By doing exercises for scoliosis, you greatly reduce your chances of getting a back injury or worsening your current condition.
As we grow and our bodies develop, we (yes, every human being) develop something that’s called muscle imbalances. Muscle imbalances are over-developed and under-developed muscle groups that are created naturally based on how we use our bodies. So how do I cure my muscle imbalances? Through something we like to call Muscle Balance Therapy.
Muscle Balance Therapy is a series of different stretches and exercises that have been developed to help strengthen your weaker muscle groups while loosening ones that might be too tight. Thus the name “Muscle-Balance-Therapy”. By doing muscle balance therapy along with different scoliosis exercises, you will relieve yourself of back pain along with taking preventative measures towards back injuries and future conditions involving your back.
