I immediately felt safe, understood, and most importantly, hopeful.
"In 1978, at the age of 13, I was given the diagnosis of scoliosis. My spine was
basically shaped like the letter S and the doctor told my parents I needed surgery to correct it so I was whisked off to begin a new life of pain, fear, and embarrassment. I was given a total spinal fusion with a Herrington rod and spent the next year in a body cast. After that year it was basically 'good luck to you, have a nice life.'
Fast forward to becoming a nurse, which meant being on my feet and lifting patients. Add in having two children and my back was a wreck. I lived in pain but knew I didn’t want to go down the narcotic rabbit hole so I ate Ibuprofen around the clock. A friend of mine suggested Pilates to me but after visiting several studios, they weren’t sure I would be a good fit. Then I discovered Spiral Spine. I immediately felt safe, understood, and most importantly hopeful.
I am now one year in and my pain is considerably better, I feel strong, and I know I now control my future...with the help of my friends at Spiral Spine."
