5 Exercises To Help Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis

Understanding the Heart of Parental Concern

As parents, watching your child grapple with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) can be heart-wrenching.

Each day brings a tide of worry – will my child need surgery?

Will the condition worsen with age?

It’s a daunting journey, laden with uncertainty and fear about your child’s future health and happiness.

The emotional toll isn’t just on your child; it’s a shared burden, a silent, unyielding companion in your family’s life.

But amidst these worries, there’s a beacon of hope.

Understanding AIS and taking proactive steps can significantly alter its course, offering relief not just to your child but to your entire family.

How Does Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Affect Your Child’s Daily Life?

Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis isn’t just a physical ailment; it’s a condition that seeps into every aspect of your child’s life.

It can be the unseen barrier in their sports activities, the uninvited guest in their social gatherings, and the quiet shadow in their academic pursuits.

But here’s the uplifting truth: there is hope.

AIS, though challenging, doesn’t have to define your child’s story.

With the right guidance and support, your child can thrive, transforming obstacles into stepping stones for resilience and strength.

5 Exercises To Help Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis

1. The Pelvic Tilt:

This foundational exercise helps in strengthening the core muscles, providing better support for the spine.

Have your child lie on their back with knees bent.

Ask them to tighten their stomach muscles and push their lower back into the floor, holding for a few seconds before releasing.

Repeat this 10-15 times.

2. Bird-Dog Stretch:

A wonderful exercise for balance and stability, the Bird-Dog stretch enhances core and spinal muscle strength.

Encourage your child to get on all fours, then extend one arm forward while stretching the opposite leg back.

Hold for a few seconds, then switch sides.

Aim for 10 repetitions on each side.

3. Wall Sit for Leg Strength:

Strong legs support a healthy spine.

Have your child stand with their back against a wall, then slide down into a sitting position, knees bent at a right angle.

Encourage them to hold this position for 30-60 seconds, gradually increasing the time.

4. The Cat-Cow Stretch:

This yoga-inspired move is excellent for spinal flexibility.

On their hands and knees, your child should arch their back up (like a cat) and then dip it down, lifting their head (like a cow).

This fluid motion, repeated 10-15 times, helps in maintaining a flexible spine.

5. The Bridge Exercise:

This exercise strengthens the glutes and lower back, supporting the spine.

Lying on their back, knees bent, have your child lift their hips towards the ceiling, forming a bridge.

Hold for a few seconds, then lower down slowly.

Repeat 10-15 times.

Remember, these exercises are a starting point.
