Yup, recent research had proven the effectiveness of exercise over scoliosis.
Scoliosis is a complicated syndrome and there are mainly two type of scoliosis, which is structural and postural scoliosis. It further divided in to four categories: Idiopathic Scoliosis, Congenital Scoliosis, Neuromuscular Scoliosis and Degenerative Scoliosis. The degree of the severity should be identify via a series of clinical assessment before any suitable treatment and exercises are given.
The exercise should implant postural adjustment by working on strengthening of weak abs stabiliser and stretching over the shortening muscles/structure involved. I had viewed the video above and i would say it just a common strengthening exe’s over the abs stabiliser and lower back but this technique of exercise do not applicable for every scoliosis patient.
I agreed with Heidi & Nick, licensed physical therapist/chiropractor are highly recommended for exe’s prescription.
