Exercise is being recommended more and more as a treatment for mild to moderate scoliosis. By being proactive and performing these exercises, you may be able to slow the curvature of your spine and decrease the pain you feel as a result of your scoliosis. I am a testament to this as I have scoliosis and I have been able to become a trainer.
One of the benefits most of us can benefit from is a reduction in stress levels when you exercise. Getting your heart rate up a little can help you manage mental and physical stress and it also promotes the release of a chemical called norepinephrine that helps control your brains stress response and allows your body to be able to deal with any existing mental tension a lot easier. Exercise also helps boost the feel-good hormones called endorphins which basically does what it says on the tin and makes you feel happy and even creates a euphoric state, this is why there are some doctors that now prescribe exercise for people suffering with depression.
