Scoliosis Treatment – Are Exercises Beneficial?

Active rehabilitation therapy of spine can reduce the symptoms of scoliosis and also helps in reducing the scoliosis curvature itself.

Medical experts state that several exercise protocols such as core strengthening exercises like sit-ups, chin-ups help in controlling the curvature of the spine. If you are suffering from scoliosis then consult a scoliosis expert from Hiyh clinic.

Scoliosis is considered as a primary spinal condition of neurological control of the spine in response to gravity. In other words, the brain is incorrectly perceiving gravity and thus misguiding the spine accordingly.

Scoliosis is more common in the blind population and just 25% likely in the hearing population. But neurological control doesn’t seem to be the only factor involved in the progression of the scoliosis disease.

Spinal curve under 20 degrees have 22% of the risk of progression but the risk of progression jumps to 68% if the curvatures are 20 to 29 degrees. This dramatic change can probably cause a serious scoliosis condition. This effect develops an adverse mechanical tension on the spinal cord.

This also explains why the bending and rotation of the spine appear to be uncoupled which means that they don’t match normally.

And when the spinal curvature reaches up to 30 degrees or larger, the rotational component of the spine starts turning towards the inside area of the curvature.

This creates a negative effect on the curvature and dramatically increases the “coil-down” effect and curvature progression.

The scoliosis condition that seems to occur at early stages has 0 to 19 degrees curve of the spine.

Scoliosis treatment:

The treatment of scoliosis is based on the reason of scoliosis and degree of the curvature. Scoliosis treatment mainly focuses on correcting the curve through stretching the muscles and strengthening the weak muscles.

Specialized approaches like Schroth’s are used as a 3D treatment for scoliosis which helps in correcting not only side curves but also corrects the relevant pelvic, shoulder and thoracic corrections.
