Scoliosis (Yoga & Pilates) Management Program
脊椎侧弯运动管理课程

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is defined as a lateral curve of the spine with a rotational component. With scoliosis, the spine forms an “S” (or “C”) curve and rotates at the same time. The ribs, connected to the spine and move with the spine, follow both this lateral and rotational movement of the spine. The ribs and intercostal muscles between the ribs move sideways, spread apart and rotate backwards with the spine.

 

On the opposite side of the curve, the intercostal muscles are underdeveloped and the ribs are compressed. Because of the rotation of the spine, the ribs are pushed forward forming a flat back, (this is called the concave side of the back). As a result, there is postural misalignment: the ribs are rotated, the shoulders can be at different heights with one shoulder blade more prominent than the other, and one hip may be higher than the other, resulting in an uneven waist. The head is sometimes not centered directly above the pelvis and the entire body can be leaning to one side.

 

The most obvious symptoms of scoliosis are cosmetic, yet pain and discomfort are also common. In extreme cases, there can be cardiopulmonary complications. When the body balanced and aligned with gravity, yoga & pilates posture will be almost effortless.  This program lead a scoliosis body to feel what “balanced” is, through the following, you will learn that you can have a curved spine and still be balanced and graceful.

 

脊椎侧弯(Scoliosis)是指脊柱的一个或数个节段在冠状面上偏离身体中线向侧方弯曲,形成一个带有弧度「C」型或「S」型曲线。通常还伴有脊柱的旋转和矢状面上后突或前突的增加或减少,以及胸廓肋骨间左右高低不等平、骨盆的旋转倾斜和椎旁的韧带和肌肉的异常。

 

脊椎侧弯会导致人体姿势的不对称:双肩高低不一、肩胛骨隆起、髋部倾斜导致腰部不对称、头部倾斜等。侧凸症状除了外观上明显的变化,疼痛和不适也很常见。胸腔、腹腔和骨盆腔的容积量不仅减少,还会降低身高影响发育,在严重的情况下,会导致心肺并发症。

 

对于许多脊椎侧弯患者来说,也许开刀进行脊椎矫正手术治疗是唯一能让他们迅速解除痛苦和一劳永逸的方法。但不幸的是,手术后脊椎活动度不但受限,身体的疼痛并不会完全解除。根据研究显示,瑜伽和普拉提对于脊椎侧弯是有一定的治疗功效。通过提升自己对身体的警觉性,脊椎侧弯者将对于自己的痛楚来源更加敏感,并通过这感知来引导自己的身体做出调整,同时更加的接纳,和爱自己的身体。在这里,我们专业且有经验的老师将引导脊椎侧弯学生感受什么是“平衡”,并且意识到其实弯曲的脊椎还是也能通过练习让身体达到平衡。

 

脊椎侧弯学生可通过课程,加强肌肉锻炼、伸展及平衡肌肉发展。从最基本的呼吸、坐姿和站姿练习开始,一系列的瑜伽锻炼伸展不仅让肌肉恢复弹性與收缩力,更提高对身体的觉察力,也能增加信心,让脊椎侧弯者继续积极尝试更多瑜伽动作,并把瑜伽带入日常程序以改善不良姿势。除此之外,脊椎侧弯者必须持之以恒每天重复不断的练习,把练习变成习惯才能事半功倍。
