My blog is only for scoliosis, and people who have scoliosis and it will continue to be tht way.
Scoliosis stretching exercises for the upper body can help you relieve pain and gain flexibility.
Chest stretches are great for scoliosis sufferers and should be done standing with feet about shoulder-width apart with arms out to the side parallel to the ground. Pull arms backward and press shoulder blades together. Bicep stretches are similar to this, only slightly bend the knees and while arms are on the side, face palms backward, and then pull arms back. This stretch you will feel not only in your chest but in the biceps as well.
Upper Back Stretch
With this stretch make sure posture is as upright as possible. Weave your fingers together and push arms forward as far away from the chest as you can reach. You will feel this stretch in your upper back in between your shoulder blades. Stop doing the exercise if you feel any scoliosis pain.
Standing with feet shoulder-width apart and knees bent, cross one arm over your chest parallel to the ground, and use the other arm to grab near the bicep and push the arm closer toward your chest. Continue to stretch the arm as much as feels comfortable. Then switch sides and do the same thing to the other arm.
Shoulder and Triceps Stretch
Stand in the same position as the shoulder stretch. Raise both hands above the head, and then lower both arms at the same time down the middle of the spine as far as you can comfortably go.
It is important to note that these stretches may not be beneficial in individual cases. Only stretch as much as its comfortable for you. Some slight discomfort is normal, but anything beyond that may do more harm than good. These scoliosis stretching exercises can be done every day, only take a few minutes, and may have tremendous benefits for many people.
There are many lower-body scoliosis stretching exercises that can be done to help relieve lower back pain, improve posture, and reduce some of the tightness and tension of larger muscles in the back that are strained due to scoliosis. Following is a list of lower-body stretches that may help relieve some common scoliosis symptoms:
Begin sitting on the ground with legs straight out in front of you. Bend the right leg up so that the foot is lined up against the knee of the left leg and the right knee is in the air. Relax the right leg so that the knee falls toward the ground then lean forward. Then repeat with the left leg bent. You will feel this stretch in the leg that is straight against the ground. With this and the other stretches, stop if you feel any scoliosis pain.
Stand with arms straight in front of you and hands against the wall during this stretch for scoliosis. Put one foot in front of the other. Slowly let the back leg go further back, making sure to keep both legs straight throughout the stretch. Push the rear heel into the ground, then switch and repeat with the other leg in the back. You will feel this stretch in the calf of the leg that is back.
Stand straight with feet about two shoulder-widths apart from each other. Bend the right knee and push your bottom back as if pushing against a wall to lower your body. Then switch and bend the left knee. Make sure that the leg that is not supposed to be bent stays straight the entire time, even if it means not going as low. This scoliosis stretch should be felt in the leg that remains straight.
Sit on the ground with your back as tall and straight as possible and begin pulling feet in toward your body until your soles are together. Let your knees relax and fall to the sides of your body, then with hands around your ankles slowly push your legs down closer to the ground. You will feel this scoliosis exercise in the upper-inner thigh and groin areas.
Lie face down on the ground with your head resting on your left arm. Grab the right foot and pull your leg up toward the buttocks. Make sure to pull inward and not out to the side of the body because this is not good for the knees. Breathe into the stretch to get as far as possible and then switch and do the other leg. You should feel this scoliosis stretch in the quadriceps area.
