Posture Alignment Therapy - Scoliosis!

Muscles move bones - Bones Do what Muscles Tell Them to Do.

The first thing to remember is bones don’t move bones. Muscles move bones. We all know this. Most treatments for scoliosis focus on the bones, but we all know the bones are only doing what the muscles are telling them to do.

Fix the muscle imbalances and the bones will follow. Another way to look at it is: form follows function. Restore the function to the muscles and the form of the bones and joints changes. This is what Egoscue focuses on.


Spine connected to hips and Shoulders

The Spine doesn’t Function All on its Own; The body functions as a unit.

Another important thing to remember is the spine doesn’t function all on its own. So treatments focused on the spine alone will not create long term change. Why is this? Well the spine is balanced on top of the pelvis and the spine is reacting to what the shoulder blades are doing. Take a look at the first image in this post. Notice how they pointed out the uneven shoulders and hips? That’s key. Those imbalances have to be addressed in order for the spine to change position and stay in a better position.

Posture Alignment Exercise

Balanced Hip and Shoulder Position

Our routine of exercises we designed are basically going after the imbalanced hip and shoulder position and letting the spine react to that. And quite a reaction we got! Now in order for  posture to maintain in this new beautiful position the client must continue to do the  menu of exercises on a daily basis to change muscle memory. When the menu is done daily, long term change is not only possible, it has to happen.

Scoliosis, or the curve of the spine, is reacting to the hips and shoulders. Specific exercises designed for an individuals unique imbalances will create positive change.

Body's Design  Restored by functional Exercises

The body always remembers its design memory, so when you start changing the stimulus with exercises the body has no choice, it changes. The goal is to allow the body to return to its birthright, its design template, and it can because it never forgets the memory. All we're doing is providing the necessary stimulus by doing the simple exercises.
