Stretches and Exercises for Scoliosis- Latissimus Dorsi Stretch

People can stretch the latissimus dorsi — the largest muscle in the upper body — with this stretch. Thoracic scoliosis directly affects these muscles. Lumbar scoliosis can also cause back tension that extends up to the latissimus dorsi.

To do a latissimus dorsi stretch:

  • Stand with good posture in a neutral position.
  • Keep the feet shoulder-width apart and the knees very slightly bent.
  • Reaching over your head with both hands, grab your right wrist with your left hand.
  • Bend slightly toward the right side until you feel a stretch in the left side of the body.
  • Hold for one to two breaths, then push with the left foot to return to the original position.
  • Repeat on the opposite side.
  • Do 5–10 repetitions on each side.
