Exercise and Scoliosis

Young Child getting examined for scoliosis exerciseExercise is a crucial part of scoliosis treatment in Bay Area.  It has immense value on its own to address issues with strength, flexibility and coordination. When combined with the use of a ScoliBrace, especially if spinal curves are greater than 20 degrees, the benefits are exponential.

Dr. Cynthia Boyd is a highly-trained and advanced certified Chiropractic BioPhysics (CPB) practitioner and instructor. Scoliosis treatment administered under the watchful eye of Dr Cynthia Boyd and her team ensures all underlying postural issues are addressed, and the patient experiences sustainable outcomes long-term.

The Benefits of a Personalized Exercise Program

Any type of low impact and strengthening exercise program can have great potential benefits. However, they don’t address the innate imbalances that come with scoliosis.  Thus, adding mirror-image exercises, science, and personalization to a spine rehabilitation program significantly increases the outcome potential.

The benefits of exercise with a CPB certified physician include:

  • Addressing imbalanced spinal muscles (some that are over-stretched and others that are too tight) with unique biofeedback techniques.
  • Reduce faulty movement patterns that are hard for the patient to recognize on their own and can aggravate or cause progression of symptoms. Use of visual and tactile cues (such as mirrors and hands) can help retrain these patterns.
  • Improved overall quality of life with increased mobility, core strength, and an overall improved sense of well-being.

Get Individualized Results with an Expert

What specific exercises will be needed to achieve the best results will vary with each individual’s needs.  Milder, non-progressive cases will most likely respond well to an exercise-only program. While patient’s with bigger curves and a higher risk for progression will benefit from a combination of bracing and exercise.

No matter what, the first step should always be achieving optimized biomechanical support with the help of an expertly trained CBP chiropractor.  This is of utmost importance since improper exercise can slow or reverse results. Early scoliosis detection and taking quick action with bracing and a corrective exercise regiment will maximize results and minimize risk of pain and other symptoms developing.
