Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine, in an ‘s’ or ‘c’ shape from side to side and is usually diagnosed in the first seven years of your life.
In mild cases, it often doesn’t cause pain and doesn’t require treatment, but some people will experience back pain.
Signs of scoliosis include one shoulder looking higher than the other, uneven hips or the waist appearing off centre.
In 80% of cases, the cause is unknown, but it can be caused by genetics, muscular conditions or past surgeries.
In moderate to severe cases, scoliosis is usually corrected through surgery but in mild cases, corrective exercise can help by restoring imbalances in the muscles caused by abnormal positioning and the inability of the spine to move as it should.
At Core Strength Studios, your back pain rehabilitation programme will address these imbalances by isolating and strengthening your back muscles which are likely weak and deconditioned through lack of function.
Your programme will also include exercises to support correct posture along with sports massage, stretching and flexibility to help release any tight muscles you’re experiencing as a result of your scoliosis.
