A top orthopedist had pronounced that recovery was impossible
When I first came to Avi a year and a half ago I was in very poor shape. My posture had collapsed to the left, apparently due to a worsening in my scoliosis. Walking was difficult, sitting was difficult -- getting through the day was difficult. I was reduced to short periods of gentle movement interrupted by long periods of rest. A top orthopedist had pronounced that recovery was impossible -- that the only solution would be long spinal fusion of some 17 vertebrae.
Using the "Rolfing” technique in children and young adults suffering from scoliosis, can not only retard its progression, but can even reverse it by straightening the degree curvature significantly.
The extent to which an integrated therapy of opening fascial adhesions and movement exercises can relieve the pain of individuals with mild scoliosis can be learnt from the case of Naama (pseudo name). A few months ago Naama (a young woman aged 29) arrived at my clinic for treatment.
Modern medicine doesn’t treat people suffering from slight scoliosis*. The treatment for relieving the pain and preventing further deterioration can be found in the treatment combining the opening of the adhesion of the covering of the muscle and movement.
