A concerned parent in Wisconsin wants to know if Pilates is a suitable, pro-active treatment for her daughter with scoliosis. She’s currently seeing a chiropractor an hour-and-a-half away and their scoliosis treatment is taking over their lives.
Erin encourages her to seek out therapy options in her own area, so that they can begin to take their lives back and try different types of exercise therapy. Erin also reminds her that scoliosis is a life-long journey that doesn’t stop when her daughter stops her skeletal growth. Hormonal changes also play a big role. It’s important to find therapies that work well for her as she manages her scoli for the rest of her life.
Should she try Pilates for Scoliosis? Absolutely. The key is finding an experienced practitioner in her own area.
