Is gokhale method beneficial for scoliosis?

Hi.

I'm a 28 years old woman with scoliosis. I have read Gokhale's book, and I'm wondering if it's safe to do the exercises on my own, since there is no gokhale practicioner in my country.

I think my scolisis is mild or moderate, C shaped, my right shoulder hangs a bit lower and my left rib is a bit more pronounced.

I can feel the grooves only in my lower back, so it's kinda difficult to know if I'm doing the exercises correctly 

I'm having difficulties with my shoulders, they are always tense, they don't relax even after shoulder rolls.

Is it possible to do stacksitting in this kind of chair? In my home I only have chairs like this:

How to avoid squeezing my pelvic floor when squeezing the bottocks in glidewalking?

Hi nitaxh :)

My name is Alejandro Macias and I am a very experienced teacher of the Gokhale Method. I came to this work seeking relief for all my pains and aches in my body, including scoliosis, sciatica, tendonitis, arthritis and many other issues. I was so extremely relieved by the Gokhale Method that I became a teacher to spread this marvelous posture work.

Now, eventhough it helps tremendously to work with a teacher, you can make strong strides forward on your own with our book and DVD. Not only that, you can correct your scoliosis the way I have done myself by applying the Gokhale Method.

In regards to your other questions, yes, you can stack-sit on that chair, no problem. However, you´ll need to set up a wedge and run through the steps in the book carefully. A teacher (online or in person) would help you tremendously with this.

In regards to isolating your glutes in glidewalking, a very common issue is to not have an anteversion of the pelvis. There is almost always a strong need to learn how to antevert the pelvis to better engage and isolate the glute muscles. 

We can actually work on all of this together via Skype. If you´d like to learn more shoot me an email at [email protected]

Wishing you the very best :)

-Alejandro

Dear Alensa,

Acoording to my X-rays from 2 years ago, I had by then corrected 60% of my scoliosis. I know I am almost done with correcting my scoliosis. 

As you may know, in the Gokhale Method we work extensively in lengthening the spine. We can start with the the hips, neck, lower back, sleeping position, and even the feet! It all helps! And depending on the degree of effort and daily consistency, we can accumulate visible changes really fast. With scoliosis and arthritic changes we need to push a little harder. 

I create programs and routines for most of my students so they establish a daily practice, and we adjust it over time depending on their needs. If you´d like, we can also work together.

Feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] so we can take your primal posture to the next level :) 

With shoulder rolls,

-Alejandro

Hello Alejandro

I'm 42 and I also suffer from rotoscholiosis (like an S), unfortunately i had a surgery and i got a protesis for one of my breast that was replaced. This has also worsed my situation. I had been working with GDS and Meziersz but I want to learn and try myself how to improve my situation. 

I raelly never suffer from condition, but 3 years ago I broken the little finger on my right foot and that just made my scoliosis worst and suffered from pain like 2 years. NOw, I dont have pain, but my arms are really hurting somtimes and my dorsal spine is hurting for the very first time. 

I am sure it has too be because of the surgery in my left breast. I have a protesis now because it will be worst if i dont get it. 

Anyway, do you think you can help me?

I know the method, i bought the book, but as the young lady said, i was not sure about the postures specially because i have a problem with my pelvis, the hip... seems i have shorter left leg.

Hope you can help me

Regards

Lizette

Hi Lizette :)

Let me start by saying that the fastest most efficient way to get change is to work with a teacher directly. The book is wonderful, however, direct instruction with a teacher makes is best. 

With the Gokhale Method we cannot promise anything but we are very confident in our ability to help with back and neck pain. I would love to work with you, and this can be done remotely. To better and safely asses your situation we'd have to chat more. You can reach out at [email protected]

I want to share that through the Gokhale Method I have corrected most of my scoliosis resulting in a total relief of my pain, which included severe arthritic pain, debilitating sciatica, and much more. I have also seen tremendous improvements in my students with the same condition.

Please reach out to us with any other questions :)

-Alejandro

Before and after surgery, I found a firm bed with a foam overlay is best to sleep on. You need that softness but you also need to be held firmly, level and straight. If you find you don't lose that soreness in the morning, try a foam overlay before you change mattress - I swear by them. Most on here like the memory foam, which I haven't tried yet. Mine's the foam egg-crate style.
