Pilates and Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a sideways curve in the spine that comes in many different varieties. You might have scoliosis and it has no effect on your daily life or it could be a major issue for your quality of life. According to the National Scoliosis Foundation, Scoliosis affects an estimated 6 – 9 million people in the United States. Scoliosis can develop in early childhood. However, most often occurs between 10-15 years old, occurring equally among both genders. Women are 8 times more likely to progress to a curve magnitude that requires treatment and become an issue in daily activities.

Scoliosis can lead to chronic pain, lung and heart damage, and a notable change in appearance, which can result in self-consciousness for those who have it. You are at the right place because Pilates can help positively affect the myriad factors involved with the crooked spine and unbalanced musculature associated with Scoliosis.
