Scoliosis is curvature of the spine. In people who are diagnosed with scoliosis, 85% have no idea how or when it developed, but they do know that they suffer from it, and most know that there is no cure. The good news is that scoliosis is a manageable condition. Once you have been released from PT and your doctor agrees, then Pilates will help give you the strength to keep your body upright and counter the curvature of scoliosis. In scoliosis, there is an imbalance where one side is tighter/more contracted than the other. Part of the challenge is to lengthen the tighter/contracted side while building overall balanced strength and body awareness. Each person with scoliosis experiences it in a way that is unique to them. It is important to understand your body's particular configuration, and to choose the exercises that are right for you. In other words, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Rachel will carefully assess your overall condition. She will support you as you learn the stretching and strengthening routines that will precisely target the particular curves that exist in your spine.
