Soo I have compound scoliosis and I have been hooping a lottt lately, especially learning some new jumps then the other day I coughed while slightly bent over the sink and I was in tears on the ground from the pain. I left my university and went home to see my chiropractor. He says that hooping is probably good for my back as long as hoop equally in both directions.

Problem is, I can't seem to hoop throwing it to right! I do not want to give up hooping because of my crooked back!

Anyone have any advice? Or similar experiences?

Hey Samantha! :) I would suggest turning the same direction you are trying to hoop...so turn with the hoop. Also, I would switch back to the larger blue hoop I made you to practice this since you can hoop slower with that one without it falling down. Just keep trying!! You can do it! :) Love Love Love!

Hi Samantha!
to develop your muscles around your spine symmetrically, it is important to hoop in both directions. If you have a backproblem, for ex your scoliosis, it becomes vital. I found it difficult to get my second direction. I got out my large hoop, turned in the direction of the hoop and practiced and practiced... You will get it in time. Good luck! Nina

Thanks Megan & Nina! I have been trying & it is getting better already! I can't keep it going very long just yet but I can take it up already so thats cool! :)

Oh & I had a bad hooping dream last night! First time evvver! I kept trying to hoop throwing it to the right & failing & my boyfriend, Ben told me I should just stop hooping because my back was only gonna get worse. :( I texted him in the morning though & he said dream Ben is not very smart. :P

I have severe scoliosis aswell..(my spine is twisted and i have to much muscle one one side of my back and the other side is weak). I hoop for a minimum of 2 hours every day and i always stretch my back-you can do this by laying flat on the ground and lifting your left knee(bent and pressed on your body) your left hand spead out in the "t" shape and using your right hand press down on your knee to the ground and hold your head towards your arm that is straight out. You do it for about 30 seconds per side always withyour left knee held to the ground by your right hand or your right knee held to the ground by your left hand. I also go on a machine that sends electric shock into part of my weak back to cause the muscle to flex and get stronger, aswell as a machine that pulls my spine out of place and back into its correct possition about every other week. Hope this helps! Happy hooping<3

Thanks Kelly! I am having a hard time visualizing what you're describing..any chance you can make a video for meee? :)

I know this is from a few months ago, but I just wanted to say...

I have scoliosis too; my chiropractor also said that hooping was a good idea on both sides. I understand what you mean about hooping in a different direction. I was so determined that I did nothing but hoop to the left (my weaker side) until I got it. It's was sort of like writing with my left hand at first, if you know what I mean? I know it seems impossible, but if you put your mind to it, trust me, you WILL get it :)

Happy hooping :D
