Scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine) often impacts breathing and creates ribcage pain. Persons with scoliosis may be able to manage this discomfort with conscious breathing techniques, proper body mechanics, knowledge and postural strengthening. Demonstrations of therapeutic breathing and a 20 minute Exercise Flow are included with detailed explanations of the scoliosis condition.
