Why do we use Scolio-Wedges for scoliosis exercise?
With a scoliotic spine, the muscles that are too short and tight cannot fire because they are already contracted as much as they can possibly be (imagine a clenched fist).
The converse is also true, the muscles that are extended and too long are unable to fire adequately because they are too stretched (imagine trying to grasp a ball with your fingers stretched back).
The Scolio-Wedges and ‘Angles put the muscles where they need to be so that you can strengthen the muscles that will aid in correcting the curves of the spine. A complete description of how to use the ScolioWedges and ‘Angles can be found in Scolio-Pilates®.
