Curvy Bodies: A Deeper Look at Scoliosis

This workshop begins by separating the myths from the facts that surround scoliosis as well as discussing the current recommended treatment for scoliosis within the medical profession. We will then look in detail at the vertebrae and what is happening to them within a scoliotic spine. By better understanding your clients’ Cobb angles and degree of rotation within them, you will be better equipped to make suitable exercise choices. During this workshop, you will:

  • Observe changes in Scoliotic client at the workshop and have the opportunity to apply hands on techniques
  • Understand how to “unwind” the scoliotic curves through both set up and basic breathing techniques
  • Apply basic programming strategies
  • Work with several Scoliotic clients to assess curvature and devise suitable programs for them
