Apparently we have seen the constantly rising number of people suffer from scoliosis, it’s crucial we as the fitness professional to design a special exercise program for the scoliosis clients.
Before you begin self-correction exercises designed for scoliosis, it is important that you first speak with your doctor. Some exercises may be very helpful, whereas others may have disastrous consequences. Speaking with your doctor first about the types of exercise you wish to try will ensure that you do not perform any harmful actions that may exacerbate and worsen your condition.
Scoliosis mostly affects children and adolescents. It is a medical condition that pertains to a sideways curving of one's spine, resembling an "S" or "C" shape, as opposed to being straight. This condition can make normal, day-to-day movements hard to carry out, as well as causes a difficulty in breathing as the lungs cannot operate properly due to limited chest space, caused by the condition. This article will detail exercises for scoliosis that you can try to ease the condition.
Scoliosis exercise treatments needs to be performed in conjunction with a specific focus on creating a “stimulus” that triggers the brain to recognize that there is an abnormality and make the necessary auto-correction to the spinal posture. This stimulus must effect the body at a subconscious level in order to create any meaningful changes in posture. If posture changes are accomplished willfully and consciously, as soon as the patient takes their attention off their posture, they will revert back to the base-line posture which is supporting the scoliosis. In other words, any type of voluntary movement exercises for scoliosis simply are over-riding the subconscious automatic postural control centers in the brain and not allowing them to truly “learn” how to auto-correct the scoliosis spine.
