Yoga to treat S-shaped spine

Akshar says, “Patients suffering from the condition of scoliosis can turn to yoga for management of the condition. Practicing certain poses in yoga can help with pain and strengthen the muscles around your spine. These stronger muscles can in turn help with better spinal alignment, which is also connected with reduced pain in people with scoliosis.”
