Questioning is the first line of defense in not becoming sheep-le or close minded to alternatives…
People with degenerative scoliosis often have more back and leg pain. This is related to arthritis in the back and possible compression of nerve roots leading to the legs. Treatment including physical therapy or exercise help relieve these symptoms in some cases. People who fail to improve with these treatments may benefit from surgery
This is too serious in my opinion to be generally tossing out suggestion online w/o more knowledge(just my opinion)…
Here are some info sources which may help expand and direct your query:
…just a start if you needed some direction. Definitely search/use info closely related to what you deal with in your service. Hope this is helpful.
peace & blessing ALWAYS
First is to be certain your client has medical clearance, and you have guidelines from his/her physician and/or physical about acceptable and contraindicated movements based on your client’s particular situation. Is the scoliosis both lumbar and thoracic, or just lumbar? It’s an important question. Given clearance, an exercise I suggest is simply a prone back extension. Form and technique are most important. Lying prone with the head and neck in a neutral position, lace the fingers behind the head, elbows out to the side. Keeping the head and neck neutral, with no movement in the shoulder or shoulder girdle, tighten the lower back muscles and extend off the mat or floor. Hold the head, neck, shoulder and shoulder girdle with no movement throughout both the effort and recovery phases of the movement. The effort movement continues until the nipple line leaves the surface. Maintain tension in the low back muscles throughout the recovery phase back down. Relax and then repeat for however many reps you’re having your client perform. Be sure to have your client keep breathing throughout the movement.
