What Can You Do About Your Scoliosis?
The Easiest and Most Effective thing You Can Do About Your Scoliosis are These 4 Specific Exercises. These Exercises are Not Difficult and Anybody Can Do Them. However, if You Do Have any Questions or Have any Difficulty Performing the following Exercises feel free to Contact Me either, through Twitter or this Site’s Contact Form and I will be glad to Help Answer any Questions You may Have.
- Wall Straightening
Stand against a Wall with Your Head, Shoulders and Buttocks firmly against the Wall with Your Feet out about a Foot from the Wall. Press Your Lower back into the Wall, Take a Few Deep Breaths and Release. Repeat 10 times. This Same Exercise can also be performed lying down on Your Back. With Your Knees bent Raise Your Arms above Your Head and press Your Lower Back into the Floor. Take a Deep Breath in as You Raise Your Arms and Breath Out as You apply the Pressure. Repeat 10 times.
- Side Stretches
Stand with Your Feet Shoulder-width apart. Put one Hand on Your Hip and Raise Your other Arm up and over Your Head. Bend Sideways at Your Waist with Your Raised Arm Curving over Your Head. Simply Stretch and Return to the Upright Position. Repeat 10 to 20 times on Each Side. Be careful Not to Twist as You Bend and Don’t Bounce. You can also add Hand Weights to this Routine. Hold one weight at Your Side instead of putting Your Hand on Your Hip and Hold the other weight in Your Raised Arm.
Lie flat on Your Back and bend Your Knees. Breathe in as You Raise Your Arms up over Your Head and tilt Your Hips slightly upwards. Slowly Bring Your Arms forward and raise Your Upper Body as You bring Your Arms forward over Your Knees. Keep Your Elbows straight as You can and continue to roll upwards and touch Your Knees and release Your Breath as You rise. Lie back down slowly and Repeat 10 to 20 times.
Lie on the floor face down, place Your Hands shoulder-width apart underneath Your Shoulders. Slowly Lift Your Upper Body up by straightening Your Arms. Keeping Your Knees on the floor and Your Back as straight as possible while tilting Your Hips forward, and Breathe in as You rise up. Hold for 5 seconds, release Your Breath, and slowly lower Yourself back down. Repeat 10 to 20 times.
These Exercises Should be done Twice a Day, Once Every Morning and Once Again an Hour Before going to Bed Every Night.
