In some earlier articles here about scoliosis (curvature of the spine) I may have made it sound more simple to “fix” than it may be.

Sometimes it’s a lot easier than other times to straighten the curves naturally.  It all depends on what the causes may be.

  • Is the cause actually the shape of bones?
  • Is it almost all muscular?
  • Is it a combination?
  • Is the scoliosis long-standing?  Were you born with it?

If you check out the rest of the articles in the Scoliosis Category here you will get a lot of good information.  But if you have a serious curvature in your spine, it may take much more treatment than the ten hours I had at the hands of a pain relief expert and more self-care, too.

Just wanted to let you know it might just not be as simple as I make it sound.

But the natural route is still the best to try first to get rid of your scoliosis.

2 Comments on Curing Scoliosis Isn’t Always Easy

    Hi, I’m 14 and I’ve had scoliosis since I was about 6 or 7 ._. and I was wondering, is it possible for it to go away? Naturally? Like right now my scoliosis is at a 20cm in an “S” form, what are my chances of having a normal spine again ?

  2. Hi Adriana,

    Will your scoliosis go away naturally? That’s a good question. The first thing is to figure out why you have scoliosis. There is always a reason. If it’s because one of your spine bones isn’t the shape it’s supposed be, that’s a reason that cannot change. But…when I watch professional yoga instructors I often see they have scoliosis. They conquer the discomfort and dysfunction by making their whole body long and strong.

    Sometimes scoliosis is caused by muscles that are tight in one area pulling on the spine. This can happen from habitually working, sitting or sleeping a certain way or from an injury That’s an easy fix. Relax the tight muscles with massage therapy and some stretching.

    Many times scoliosis is caused by a short leg bone or small hip bone on one side. That causes your pelvis to tilt. And that tilt causes scoliosis. That’s a fairly easy fix, too. Once it’s discovered lifting the shoe on the side that’s shorter or smaller will level the body. Massage therapy can help the body get back into neutral muscle positions much more quickly.

    So the answer to your question is: it depends on the cause of your scoliosis. It depends on who works with you to figure it out and treat your muscles.

    My own scoliosis isn’t perfect but it’s much better because I had extensive muscle treatment and because I stretch and wear a lift under my short leg. You will have to be an active partner in correcting your scoliosis.

    You have a good chance to get rid of your scoliosis naturally when you figure out the cause(s) and take action. Who can help? Some doctors and physical therapists understand how bodies work but most don’t seem to. Many PT’s should be able to measure the bones in your legs and hips. Some massage therapists practice Neuromuscular Massage Therapy or Rolfing and may be able to help. I hope this helps answer your question.
