Scoliosis is a condition where the curve of your spine is deviating to the right or left. If you look at a spine from the back, it should be vertical and straight. In scoliosis it deviates away from the vertical at a specific level in your spine.

Scoliosis frequently affects the lumbar spine. Scoliosis can be functional or idiopathic in presentation. In functional scoliosis correction is usually relatively easy, using manual techniques to correct the underlying problem in your back. Idiopathic can also respond well to exercise and manual therapy but may require surgery.

Exercising with scoliosis is a very important part of your overall management. Through specific exercises, you can often reduce the degree of your curve and symptoms, and sometimes resolve them fully.
The treatments for scoliosis are many and largely very effective. Functional scoliosis should resolve fully with manual therapy and specific exercises. Idiopathic scoliosis is more complicated, but if addressed at a young age often does well with Craniosacral Therapy and exercises. Surgery is complex and extreme, but often necessary, and effective once combined with manual therapy.
