Bad posture often contributes to the excruciating pain in the lower back brought about by scoliosis. When you experience abnormal curvature in your lower back, it is especially important that you maintain good posture to prevent the condition from worsening and to avoid further pain. Proper posture not only means sitting correctly, but it also involves your day-to-day activities.  There are several ways you can improve and maintain the right posture when you have scoliosis.

A good alternative to scoliosis surgery is noninvasive chiropractic care that utilizes massage therapy to correct the abnormal curvature of the spine. There is no need for incisions, and it is therefore a proven safe method that is equally effective without the risky side effects of surgery.  Going through chiropractic treatments will not only help you improve your posture, but it will also help you correct your spinal condition. Talk to your chiropractor to determine the right treatment plan for you and the proper lifestyle practices for handling scoliosis.

Another way to improve our posture is through regular exercise. Even though you may be undergoing therapy, exercise is also important to keep your body working while you are at home. Take note that there are exercises that are not advisable to scoliosis patients, as these will only make the condition worst. Focus more on strengthening your core and your lower back through things such as Pilates.  Aside from strength exercises, do some stretching exercises each day as well. Stretching your body will help strengthen the spine and increase your body’s flexibility and mobility. Stretching will also reduce the risk of body injuries during exercise and treatments, which can further contribute to back pain.

Take the time to introduce yoga into your routine. Yoga poses not only enhance the flexibility of our body, but they also help improve your breathing. With the right poses, yoga can improve your body posture.
