MOVEMENT MED PILATES AND SCOLIOSIS

Many adults with scoliosis are referred to Pilates for long term exercise management and pain reduction. 

Because of its emphasis on core strength, body-awareness, breathing, and neuromuscular re-education pilates can be very good for someone with scoliosis.  However, not all instructors have a deeper knowledge of the abnormal mechanics of the scoliosis spine during movement, specific training on specific exercise technique, and how to adapt the pilates environment to the scoliosis spine.
