In the final segment of this three-part series, Erin Myers of Spiral Spine Pilates refers to a recent study indicating that orthodontic braces can play a role in increasing one’s risk of developing scoliosis, particularly when combined with classical ballet training and a having low BMI. Erin is well versed on these factors as she was affected by each, and provides a unique perspective on how to manage them.
If you’d like to learn more about the connection between orthodontics and scoliosis, we invite you to read Erin’s previous blog post on the subject.
