What I Mean When I Say I Have Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an extremely complicated condition. According to WebMD, “scoliosis is a lateral (toward the side) curvature in the normally straight vertical line of the spine.” But that’s the super basic, elementary explanation for a very complex condition that affects the body, mind and soul.

As a side note, I am not a personal trainer, and I have no degree in fitness whatsoever, so please talk to your doctor or someone who knows your body well before you try my routine yourself.
