Scoliosis is a medical condition where your spine is curved from side to side. The spine of an individual with typical scoliosis may look more like an “S” than a straight line.
This spinal deformity can be best treated by exercising regularly and staying active. Believe it or not, that constant backache will disappear like magic in few days!
So, here are the top 4 best exercises for treating scoliosis that will correct your posture super-fast.
1 Cat-Camel Pose
Get on your hands and knees, with your abs tight and head straight. Take a deep breath in and lift your lower rib cage, rounding out your back and relaxing your neck. Breathe out, lowering your chest toward the floor and looking slightly upward. Return to the beginning position, with your abs tight, and repeat.
2 Cervical Extension
This exercise strengthens the extensor muscles in the back of the neck.
Start with the head and neck straight forward, and the hands clasped on the crown of the head. The elbows should be close together. The head is then tilted back while applying resistance with the hands, held for five seconds, then returned to a neutral position. Do not pull your head forward and down!
3 Pelvic Tilts
Lie face-up on the floor with knees bent, feet flat and arms at your sides. Tighten your belly and buttocks to slowly curl your pelvic bone inward, feeling your lower back flatten out against the floor. Hold for five seconds, breathing normally, before releasing. Repeat.
4 Tree Pose
This yoga pose helps with posture, strengthening your core, and improving your overall balance.
Shift your weight to your left foot.
With your right hand, reach down and grab your right ankle. Lift your right foot up and place the sole of your foot against your left thigh. If you can’t reach up to your thigh, try putting your foot against your calf instead.
Stretch and lengthen your spine. Draw the pelvic bone inward and point your tailbone toward the floor.
Place your palms together in front of your chest and move your shoulder blades together.
Gaze forward and take slow and steady breaths. Repeat on the other side.
