A recent study, referenced here, has indicated that classical ballet, particularly combined with other factors, can increase one’s risk of developing scoliosis. Erin Myers of Spiral Spine Pilates was trained in classical ballet and was diagnosed with scoliosis at a young age, giving her a unique perspective as to how ballet and scoliosis are indeed related. Listen as Erin explains her theory and offers solutions on ways to minimize scoliosis’ impact on your body.

To learn more about the connection between classical ballet and scoliosis, you can read Erin’s recent article in Dance Magazine.
