Any advice on this is appreciated.

Im training a young client (19 years old, new to the gym, played a lot of rugby) who has already developed a fairly severe lateral deviation in his spine. Im trying to correct this through posture work and single side exercises as, although he's right handed, he's been using his left shoulder to tackle so this is where the elevation occurs. However any balance work or single leg exercises (one legged shoulder press, lateral raise etc) is proving somewhat confusing and fairly ineffective.

Does anyone have any suggestions as I reckon the next step is physio but looking to seek other opinions before referral.

Cheers in advance for any help given

Johnny

The first step should be a medical evaluation, if it hasn't been done already. If the scoliosis is indeed severe, it may not be a muscular issue.
