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!

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
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
