There are generally two categories of scoliosis – functional and structural. Functional scoliosis causes cover conditions that do not involve the spine, such as muscular imbalance. Structural (idiopathic) scoliosis can develop with no apparent cause or as a result of an injury or infection that affects the spine or spinal cord.
People with scoliosis often experience feelings of helplessness and insecurity which can lead to depression. Yoga helps to encourage a more normal symmetrical alignment through stretching muscles that have tightened and strengthening muscles that have become weak from asymmetrical imbalance.
What does Scoliosis look and feel like?
Depending on the degree of curvature and its location along the spine, some people may look like they are leaning to one side or if observed from the side, may look like they have one side of the rib cage and/or shoulders protruding more than the other.
If left untreated, severe scoliosis can lead to nerve damage or even heart and lung problems due to pressure caused by the asymmetrical curvature/rotation of the spine. There might even be pain when standing, sitting or walking.
