How can Pilates help your scoliosis? There is no known cure for scoliosis, however corrective treatments like exercise, bracing, and surgical repair can help to slow the progression of spinal curvature by increasing stabilization of the bony structures.
With a regular Pilates practice, clients with scoliosis say they feel longer, stronger, and more balanced. In this partnership you will not only be assisted in identifying your body’s patterns, but learn tools to manage them in and out of the studio so that you may live with less pain and better manage it as it occurs.
We will work one-on-one to strengthen weak postural muscles and stretch tight muscles to increase joint congruency, re-shape fascia, and re-pattern neural and muscle patterns and achieve more balance in your body.
