These scoliosis exercises are for postural scoliosis that can come from bad posture or a leg length difference. If you’ve had scoliosis since you were young, these stretches may not help. Scoliosis stretches:
Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine. It can happen when you are young, or it can happen when you are older and have bad posture or a leg length difference. This can cause the muscles on one side of the back to be tight and/or the muscles on the opposite side to be too weak. These exercises are for postural scoliosis.
Starting off on the floor, you will work your core and pelvic muscles. If you can’t get on the floor, you can do them on a couch or bed.
You can also use a Swiss ball (therapy or stability ball) to help work on your balance muscles as well as your back muscles. If you don’t have a ball, you can do these lying down on your stomach. You also want to work on your side as well to strengthen your oblique muscles. Make sure to modify the exercises as you need to.
In standing, you can use weights and resistive bands. Make sure you start of with light resistance for both and slowly progress to something harder. The last exercises are squats with movements. Make sure you are using good form so you don’t irritate something else like your knees.
