Staying Fit with Scoliosis : Scoliosis is a condition in the spine that creates a curve and it is 10 times more common among females than males. There are varying degrees of this condition, each making movement harder. When first given a scoliosis diagnosis, women tend to assume that they must limit activity levels. That is not true. Staying fit is important to help manage pain, regenerate spinal discs, and boost your general health.
