Scoliosis gains with functionalpatterns!
My client enuoyiboify (Ify) is a delightful 28 year old woman with a promising career as a Chemical Engineer
Ify developed a scoliosis when she was around 13 years old. As you can see in the last slide, an x-ray taken in 2016 shows that Ify has quite a severe S shaped scoliosis affecting both her lumbar and thoracic areas. She has rib prominence and a prominent shoulder blade on the right, caused by rotation of the rib cage in the thoracic area. The left side rib cage is quite concave.
Ify has tried many different therapies with no improvement and had even considered surgery
Ify had extremely hyper mobile shoulders with quite limited pec and shoulder strength. She was very disconnected between her upper and lower body, very limited rotation, virtually no TVA activation and limited core strength, glute and lat activation.
Ify came to me in mid October 2018. We have worked together generally twice per week (2.5 hours/week most weeks) whenever possible. We have utilized mostly a combination of FP corrective exercises, FP chambers and breathing work.
Ify has worked HARD! She did not feel comfortable running when she came to me. Now she runs around 10 minutes at a 4 - 5 mph pace at each training session (videos to follow) and is looking forward to running outside when weather permits.
When we started, Ify’s only goal was a straight spine. Since then we have worked from the inside out toward milestones. Ify is now pain free, has built up her confidence, her strength, lots of spinal decompression and now, as you can see, through the use of FunctionalPatterns protocols, Ify’s body is starting to transform.
She is far more integrated, is developing a strong core and TVA activation, major decompression and she now has a strong confident posture and her shoulders and scapulas are starting to balance out.
Thanks to the genius of naudiaguilar and functionalpatterns
