View Full Version : trying excercises

im 18 yrs old with a curvature in the spine of 28 degrees. my doctor & chiropractor thinks that my curvature is too minor for an operation and too old for a brace but only physical therapy such as exercises will help my back pains and curve. does anyone know any advice or exercise tips that you think will help??
thank you... ciao.. caramia :p

Hello Caramia:

It's nice to need neither brace nor surgery, I imagine, but if you're in pain, you need to find something.

Several people on this forum, and on some other scoliosis forums, have reported good success dealing with scoli back pain through yoga. There'a a yoga DVD available (we got our copy through this website) especially for scoli, designed and taught by a woman with severe scoliosis which she manages through yoga. My daughter (13 yrs; 42*36* double major) uses it and I think it's very well done. It's called Yoga for Scoliosis.
