Scoliosis causes intense discomfort, and many individuals suffering from the condition are constantly searching for new and alternative ways to manage their pain.
Like many other health conditions that cause constant pain, scoliosis-related pain is intensified by the pull of gravity. As the spine twists, it pulls muscles and body parts in uncomfortable directions, while gravity tries to pull them the opposite way. In a float tank, the pull of gravity is minimized so all of those muscles and ligaments can relax and stretch.
Floating also allows the spine a chance to relax and elongate, which can reduce some of the effects of scoliosis. Even though the spine cannot completely straighten out, the weightless environment of the float tank allows it to return to a state that is as close to normal as possible.
Finally, floating is helpful for patients with scoliosis because of the natural relief from pain found during therapy. Floatation therapy causes a rush of endorphins, which act as natural painkillers. Instead of turning to unnatural chemicals and drugs to suppress pain, individuals suffering from scoliosis can use float sessions to effectively manage a large part of their pain, drug-free.
if you suffer from the effects of this debilitating condition, why not try floatation therapy – book now, at time to float.
