Postural scoliosis is a condition of the curvature of the spine such as the letter C (scoliosis) caused by body posture. This condition can be triggered due to the habit of carrying heavy objects or leaning on one side of the body, sitting position, standing or sleeping position. This disorder can improve with appropriate posture changes or physiotherapy.
Swimming is a sport that is very safe for the spine and joints because there is no impact (emphasis, either by activity or by gravity) on the bones and joints. This is what causes swimming is highly recommended in the elderly or people with bone and joint disorders.
