Should I continue with Sports if I have Scoliosis? The answer depends upon the type of sport you are involved with and the magnitude of your curvature. Published studies have reported and increased incidence of scoliosis among ballet dancers and Rhythmic gymnasts.  However, there was no causal relationship reported, only an increased incidence, which may be coincidental.  It is our opinion that any sport can be detrimental if it is done for in an extreme way. For instance, ballet dancing one or two hours per week would most likely not be an issue, however, ballet dancing 5 hours a day for 5 days a week may aggrevate your curvature and increase the progressive nature of the scoliosis. Our best recommendation is to ask your doctor and to use common sense when making decisions about sports or dance.
