Reversing Scoliotic Curvature-Specific intervertebral training and cuing to "fight" against gravity!
Building Spine Capacity!!!
I have many calls from people asking me to explain how do I address spine issues because they already tried everything (injections, physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, etc.) and nothing worked, still in pain!
These videos are an example of how I approach intersegmental manual therapy and training to build more capacity and degrees of freedom for a thoracic spine.
This is a client extremely diligent, training daily at home, 3 times a week with me and she literally had her life back in only 5 months from a huge amount of pain, her extreme spine situation with a double curvature, thoracic (~ 40 degrees) and lumbar, big ROMs asymmetries between right side and left side of the body, coupled movements of the scapulas with the shoulders, similar pelvic bones with the hips, thoracic cage unable to properly expand the ribs because of the intersegmental restriction, etc. Fortunately my client she’s always been an active person, worked through pain and discomfort and she is able to control her body so well that it was relatively easy to build the necessary awareness to move specific segments of the spine, especially the ones curved. When I ask her to give 100% she will and never backed up from any setup I’ve prepared during our sessions.
This ⬆️ , this is why nothing else work in our current healthcare model…we are complex adaptive biological systems and without specificity, active training inputs, directional stress and strain, progressive load and adaptation there’s no way to truly change the architecture of a spine, if that is the intent!
So proud of her ☺️🙌🏼
Below a home setup that can replicate similar force inputs, Pails and Rails for different segments of the thoracic spine.
