Straighten Scoliosis Naturally Blog / Uncategorized / By Keriann Zipperer Can You Straighten Scoliosis Naturally? What Is Scoliosis? Scoliosis is a life-altering illness that causes pain in various areas along with physical distortions. The mainstream options for those who suffer from scoliosis are to either worsen at an unpredictable rate or get surgery to either fuse the spine to itself or to a rod. These options are archaic and the more we learn about the body, the more we learn about why the spine shifts like this in the first place and how to straighten scoliosis naturally naturally. How Do We Straighten Scoliosis naturally? Functional Patterns counteract the motions that lead to the large curve by activating the right muscles in the right sequence. This complex process has changed the spines of many clients who now have a quality of life that surpasses what they were told to expect. Functional Patterns is a fraction of the cost of surgery, has no downtime, addresses the underlying cause of scoliosis, and has several other benefits along the way. It is the best option for people with scoliosis and should be given a solid go before approaching a major physical event such as surgery. Alongside mechanical changes through one-on-one Functional Patterns training, each of our scoliosis results came from following a basic hierarchy of bodily needs to ensure the body was able to make the needed adjustments and changes. Let’s look at some case studies to see if scoliosis can be changed significantly without surgery. Case Study #1 Naturally Straightened Scoliosis Due to severe head trauma received early last year, training @melissathewong has been a tedious process. Dynamic movement has been all but off the table as her cognitive functions would decline rapidly resulting in dizziness and a loss of balance.The changes seen here have been brought about entirely by the application of @functionalpatterns correctives (IMAPS) and myofascial release. Training in relation to our biomechanical blueprint targets all systems of the body, including the vestibular system so it’s no surprise to see an improvement in her balance and coordination as we start to ramp up her dynamic movement. Looking forward to continued results from this dedicated client.

These sessions have played a key part in my journey to recover my cognitive and physical functions after my injury. Shane is an effective coach with a keen eye and knowledge for movement patterns. I have really enjoyed training with him.” Melissa Functional Patterns Client Case Study #2 Naturally Straightened Scoliosis Due to severe head trauma received early last year, training @melissathewong has been a tedious process.

Looking forward to continued results from this dedicated client. Courtney had a 50 degree curve T6-T11 before having spinal fusion in 2002 via thoracotomy, bringing the curve to 7 degrees. A second curve developed in 2018 from T5-L2 of 40 degrees which can be seen in the photo on the left. With a steel rod in the thoracic spine, there is a limitation to what we are able to do. Nevertheless, her quality of life is improving along with the structure of her spine as it comes closer to neutral. Moreover, the changes that she is implementing to get these results are surgery-free and majorly reduce the risk of another curve appearing in the future. This is why it is SO important to address the underlying course and structure and avoid surgical bandaids when it comes to scoliosis. ✅ IMPROVEMENTS IN SCOLIOTIC CURVE✅ DECOMPRESSED LUMBAR✅ IMPROVED HIP POSTITIONING✅ DECREASED PAIN What Does Courtney Have To Say? “I have been training at Functional Patterns for 6 months now to help with my scoliosis pain. I’ve had significantly reduced levels of pain and a visibly straighter back. I look forward to making more improvements as we continue. Excellent trainer, I highly recommend Functional Patterns for anyone wanting to improve their lives ” Courtney Functional Patterns Client Case Study #3 Naturally Improved Scoliosis & Scapular Winging in Just 10 Months Biomechanical Improvements:Improved scoliosisImproved scapular positioningNo more neck and back painRibcage more neutral “I came into @fp_brisbane with back and neck pain that was limiting my work and social life. After training with FP protocols I am now totally pain free and feeling much more athletic than ever. Thanks to Max for his enormous efforts in addressing the multiple dysfunctions with my body. Looking forward to continue training hard and smashing these dysfunctions with FP protocols. Grateful for @functionalpatterns @naudiaguilar ” Kynan Tweet Final Thoughts Scoliosis can be naturally straightened to certain extents, often almost entirely. The benefits of doing so naturally vs surgically are massive. You are able to keep full spinal function and you have less chance of another curve appearing and also needing surgery. You are in far less pain and require less downtime. It is also much less expensive and traumatic. You spend your rehabilitation getting fitter and leaner instead of in bed getting stiffer.Visit our Straightening Scoliosis page to read more testimonials, see more before and afters of straightened scoliosis and read more about how you could achieve a similar result.
