Pilates for Scoliosis


Azusa Miyake December 20th,2020 Course year 2020 Physio Logic Pilates & Movement NY This paper will address a general overview of Scoliosis and how Pilates helps an individual’s body and their condition with Scoliosis. Treatments for Scoliosis vary from bracing, surgery, pain management, physical therapy, and exercise depending on the severity of the condition. Most Scoliosis cases are mild to moderate which doesn’t require a surgery and a common treatment option is exercise. Pilates is known to be helpful in reducing chronic pain caused by Scoliosis. It is beneficial in counteracting the muscle misalignment, useful as a tool for assessing progress, and increases awareness of one’s body. In this paper, I would like to focus on how Pilates exercises are beneficial in reeducating one’s body to correct negative movements, increase flexibility and mobility for people with mild to moderate Scoliosis. This paper will conclude with a case study as well as my view on how Pilates can improve quality of life for people with Scoliosis.

Childbirth enormously affects the bodies of women. However the body is expected to function and carry on after a very short period of healing, since the babies need to be taken care of. This results in weak, and often damaged, core abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Taking care of the baby requires lifting and bending movements which can move the thoracis spine into (a slight) kyphosis. In case of my client (a fresh mum), her race cycling hobby also adds to the forward bending movement, coupled with tight hip flexors and hamstrings.

Pilates also adds to the feeling, of course not only for fresh mums, of being in control and being capable, which increases stamina and confidence.
