5 exercise to help improve Scoliosis

May 29, 2019

Scoliosis is a condition that creates an S-shaped curve in your spine as you look from the back. How to treat scoliosis depends on how severe your curve is. The main aims for treatment is to slow or stop the progression of your Scoliosis, relieve breathing difficulties and other symptoms.

Regular exercise is a great way to keep your core strong, help maintain better posture and relieve these symptoms. It’s also important to understand that there are better choices than “traditional fitness exercise”. Fitness exercises can overload the spine and put unnecessary stress on the muscles.

Scoliosis exercises

Performing exercises that are more specific to Scoliosis will protect your spine while reducing the risk of progression. These exercises should strengthen your whole core and stabilise the hip and shoulder joints around it.

Exercises should…

  1. Encourage better balance
  2. Contract multiple muscles of the core

All your exercises don’t have to do both of these; you can do them in separate exercises.

In addition to exercises it’s a good idea to include stretches. If your muscles are tight, exercises won’t work as well. By increasing your muscles flexibility exercises will have a greater effect.

I will write about the best stretches in another blog but for now, there are a few things to note. Firstly, know where your tightness is, as this will be the muscles you stretch. Secondly, they should encourage a straighter spine and finally, also increase the flexibility of your hips and shoulders if they are tight.


  1. Regular scoliosis specific is a great way to slow the progression and maintain better posture.
  2. Exercises should encourage better balance and contract multiple muscles of the core.
  3. Stretches are an essential addition to exercise to encourage a straighter spine and reduce muscle tightness.
