Last week, I teamed up with Dave Barber of Bodymechanics Physical Therapy in Norwell, MA to talk about his individualized bodily remedy remedy for scoliosis (and different illnesses and circumstances). I really discovered him through Instagram, and we’ve labored collectively for about 6 weeks now. His strategy is completely totally different than something I’ve skilled from a bodily therapist, so I wished to share my expertise in addition to some particular particulars from my case.
You would possibly bear in mind my historical past with again ache and scoliosis (largely associated to marathon coaching and CrossFit) and subsequent not-so-great experiences with bodily remedy. I by no means had a lot success with it. And, in my expertise, there undoubtedly was by no means an individualized bodily remedy remedy. Even between totally different therapists, it appeared like there was a “one-size-fits-all” plan to get you higher and out the door. Sure, my signs improved short-term, however I’d find yourself in ache months later as a result of the remedy wasn’t a long-term resolution, particularly for the severity of my scoliosis and desired exercise degree.
My expertise with Dave has been completely totally different. His strategy is actually an individualized bodily remedy remedy for scoliosis. I’ve discovered sooooo a lot from him, and I’ve by no means felt higher! I’m even again to operating and doing CrossFit in current weeks! Watch our video for the entire particulars about my particular case (spoiler: my strategy was completey backwards earlier than assembly Dave) in addition to what I’m doing to enhance my scoliosis (and associated again ache) for lasting outcomes!
If you’re curious how my time at Bodymechanics Physical Therapy pertains to my expertise with Zen Den, I’m nonetheless a affected person of Zen Den and go to each different week. I’m nonetheless utilizing my eye patch (arg!) on the common, and I actually assume the mix of the visible mind integration with the workouts and stretching that I discovered from Dave have made all of the distinction in how I really feel! 🙂
