What students are saying
This course has been a really good place to start to understand my scoliosis and work with it daily … this course lets you do it yourself, they are basic once you understand your scoliosis and you don’t need to pay big money to have someone show you them. I’ve got more exercises from this course so far than my practitioner. Kelly Whiteman
Useful, practical and easy to learn. Antonis Dimas
I am able to follow and understand my own scoliosis curvature (on which side) which is important for the mentioned stretching and strengthening exercise ahead. Alexis Chow
So far so good! Very informational and what good timing for myself to do something about my curve at age 25. Thank you! Julia Cheam
In most cases, the cause of scoliosis is not known. It develops mostly in children and teens and often runs in families, and females are affected 9 times more often than males.
There are two main types of scoliosis which we cover in the course, and one type can often be improved and reduced with treatment and exercise. Unfortunately, there are not many practitioners qualified or even aware that such treatments and exercise programs exist, and as a result you will frequently read that: “Exercise programs have not been shown to keep scoliosis from getting worse.” This simply isn’t true. It is the specific type of exercise program that makes all the difference; and I will be teaching THAT program inside the course.
Good posture allows our body to respond well to stress from simple every day activities. But when we lose our body alignment, as we do with scoliosis, the stress and strain of simple daily life (sitting, walking, sleeping and other activities of daily living) lead to muscle tension, pain, weakness, spinal degeneration and poor health.
Mirror image exercises
In the rehabilitation exercise section of this course, I am going to teach Mirror Image Exercises to help improve body alignment (posture), and THAT will ultimately reduce the pain from scoliosis. So what’s a mirror image exercise? Well, if our scoliosis bends us to the left, I’m going to show how to bend to the right. If our scoliosis twists us right, I going to show how to twist left, and all in an effort to improve our body symmetry and ultimately reduce the pain.
The majority of the students on this course are over the age of 35 (many over 50) and I’ll explain why ‘getting worse’ is unlikely at this age; however degenerative changes (arthritis) are more likely as studies have shown that prolonged periods of inactivity are related to increased risk of treatment failure. The very good news is that means your long-term success improving your scoliosis may be largely up to you and your efforts. This course is for those of you who plan on aging gracefully and who desperately want to improve your scoliosis appearance and general health.
