Scoliosis is defined as an abnormal curvature of the spine. In the picture below take notice of the uneven shoulders and hips. The imbalance of the shoulder and hip joints are key in The Egoscue Method & Neuromuscular Massage Therapy to the correction of the curvature of the spine. These imbalances are often overlooked in traditional treatments.
Another important thing to remember when treating scoliosis is that the spine function does not function independently on its own. Treatments focused on the spine alone will not create long term change. This is because the spine is balanced on top of the pelvis and the spine is reacting to what the shoulder blades are doing. This goes back to the importance of balancing the shoulders and hips to change the position of the spine.
