Hi Rio,


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.


In general, swimming is beneficial for strengthening muscles and bones, but in order to make your healing process good, you can do the frog or breaststroke while swimming. Do swimming with mild-moderate intensity, you should also exercise control again with your doctor and ask questions that are not yet clear with the doctor so that the doctor can determine the next step of treatment if necessary.
