Good morning, my friends! Well, this morning we have snowin Paradise, California. It's so beautiful! I can say that because snow very seldom interferes with our lives here at 1700 feet. It began yesteray and apparently continued in the night and it's just gorgeous!

I want to share some information with you today in keeping with the theme of exercises for scoliosis. I myself have not yet tried yoga, but found an interesting article for those of you who may be interested. My personal recommendation would be to consult your doctor about your spinal condition before attempting any particular exercise, as needless to say *I* do not know what positions may or may not be recommended for you.

Before we understand about scoliosis exercise let us have a brief overview of what scoliosis is.Scoliosis is a back condition in which a person has side-to-side spinal curves in addition to the normal curves through which the lower portion of the human back curves inwards. This condition can result in severe deformity of the back and cause back pain. There are surgical interventions for curing this problem. The most effective remedy for such a condition are Scoliosis exercises. Although many exercises help in reducing the Scoliosis-related problems, yoga is improving the problem of uneven curves and it is considered the best Scoliosis exercise. Yoga postures are helpful for providing relief from scoliosis because they enable us to stretch our body and help regain the normal shape of the spine.

The most effective yoga exercises for the treatment of Scoliosis-related problems include the Crocodile twist, the Supine knee chest twist, the passive back arch and the one leg up-one leg out posture. These exercises are very helpful in raising one's lowered shoulder and reducing the back pain.

The Passive back arch scoliosis exercise has been found to be helpful in not only reducing scoliosis-related pain, but also providing relief from the problems related to condition called pectus excavatum (sunken chest). Pectus excavatum is generally caused due to tight muscles across one's chest and back and soft bones in the rib cage and spine.

The One leg up and one leg out scoliosis exercise have been found to be very effective in reducing muscular tension in legs.

The Seated twist is a good remedy for the treatment of thoracic twist. This exercise also helps to rectify the alignment of the body and is simple to perform.

The Joint freeing series of scoliosis exercises are particularly helpful for people suffering from scoliosis with tight shoulder muscles. The Head to Knee pose helps in maintaining the alignment of the body and straightening of the spine. The spinal and the abdominal twists result in the stretching of muscles in the shoulder.
