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.
