About scoliosis

 

Everyone’s spine is at least a little curved – nobody's is perfectly straight – but if the angle of the curve measures 10 degrees or more, the patient is said to have scoliosis. Scoliosis can lead to back pain, muscle imbalances, and more severe symptoms. With the right exercises, studies have shown that exercise can help address the challenges of living with scoliosis.

Via Pilates for scoliosis 

 

One of the best known remedies for many types of arthritis is exercise. Proper physical activity helps in maintaining flexibility, muscle strength and bodily movements. Despite being a mild form of physical activity, Pilates offers tremendous benefits: 

 

  • Emphasis on core strengthening helps develop muscles of the abdomen, hips and lower back

  • Enhances muscle control, spine stabilization, posture, body awareness, coordination & balance

  • Facilitates relaxation of muscles of the neck, shoulders and upper back

  • Helps rehabilitate from muscle, joint and other injuries common in arthritis & related conditions 

  • Can be an effective tool for post-rehab exercise after joint replacement surgery

 

During Pilates, CoreAlign, barre or TRX workouts at Via Pilates, it is important to take things at your own pace and focus on maintaining prier form. It is best to do only a few exercises using control an correct form, then add more repetitions and different exercises as strength and endurance improves.
