How Do We Get These Incredible scoliosis before & After Results?

In order to begin to naturally straighten a scoliosis, you will need to activate the muscles that have deactivated due to the curve. As your spine pulls in one direction, the muscles pull to that side, disengaging important muscles that are supposed to be keeping your spine in alignment.

Although Functional Patterns cannot be explained in a couple of sentences, the basic premise involves the activation of necessary muscles through the use of functional movement in line with the gait cycle. Reactivating these muscles can take some time. However, with the help of an experienced Functional Patterns practitioner, you can be assisted into positions during exercise that may help to switch your muscles back on. Once you begin to feel these muscles again while training, you may begin to notice more symmetry in your structure and less pain.

While everybody is different, this has been the experience of many people who have given Functional Patterns a chance. We have helped many people avoid spinal surgery by straightening their scoliosis naturally. If you are unsure, take a look at the various case studies and relaxed before & after results that Functional Patterns presents.

We Look At The Whole Picture​

Most professionals see scoliosis as a ‘spinal issue.’ We see scoliosis as a biomechanics issue. We understand that the entire body is connected and that the body is continually adapting to make way for our dysfunctions. When we move incorrectly, the muscles, pressure and fascia around our spine begin to function A-symmetrically. This can often be reversed using very specific movements over time.​

We Are Patient.​

It often takes a long time for the body to develop a scoliosis. Because of this, it can take some time before your body is able address and correct the dysfunctions that are causing and maintaining the scoliosis. This can be a long and frustrating process. Knowing that your trainer is fully equipped to help and is willing to go on the long journey with you can be just what you need.​

You Know You're In The Best Hands.​

Nothing is worse than investing time, effort and money into something that doesn’t work. When dealing with complex, structural issues that require significant effort to correct, having concrete evidence that the method you are using works for your specific condition is a must. Whether you work with Functional Patterns or not, never settle for less than concrete results.​

Straighten Scoliosis - CASE STUDIES

Let’s take a dive into some Functional Patterns scoliosis results, testimonials & before-after’s.

5 month scoliosis and cognitive transformation

✅ Improvements in scoliotic curve

✅ Improved joint stacking and scapular positioning

✅ Improved balance and coordination

✅ Improved cognitive function and proprioception

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.

What Does Melissa Have To Say?
“I have seen significant improvement to my coordination, posture and proprioception through Functional Patterns. 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.”

Straighten Scoliosis Naturally After Post-Surgery Relapse

✅ Improvements in scoliotic curve

✅ Decompressed lumbar

✅ Improved hip positioning

✅ Decreased Pain

✅ Improved head position

✅ Improved quality of life and sleep

✅ Improved Symmetry

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.

How Does Courtney Feel About This?

“I have been training with Shane 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 ”

Naturally Straightened Scoliosis + No More Pain

✅ Improvements in scoliotic curve

✅ Decompressed lumbar

✅ Improved hip positioning

✅ Improved Scapular Positioning

✅ Decreased Pain

✅ Improved quality of life and sleep

✅ Improved Symmetry

Our Client Says:

“I’ve had a very active background and been involved in martial arts, traditional training and yoga for many years, some of which has attributed to the chronic pain I suffered with until late last year.

Some of the pains were, foot arch pain on both feet, my right knee, my lower back and thoracic spine. I’ve been to countless osteos, physios, chiros and yogis but still lived with the daily pains and strains. This recurring theme forced me to reconsider my approach to training. My FP training started in April 2020. From this point on, my pain has gradually reduced using the techniques as directed by Fe. Thanks to FP I am getting relief and slowly my issues are disappearing. Both my feet and my right knee no longer cause me pain and my lower and upper back go for long periods with zero pain, occasionally coming back to about 20% of what they used to.

I’ve tried many other practices and seen specialist and I have had the best results with functional patterns so far.

At last I am seeing amazing improvements in all areas of my body. This is not a short term once off approach and it takes consistency and time to work.”

(what training with functional patterns Melbourne looks like)

First - you will have a discussion on the phone with one of our professionals

During this call you will discuss a brief history of your condition, your goals and availability. From this information, we will match you with one of our Biomechanics Specialists. You can meet the entire team here. Each and every specialist in the clinic is trained in Human Biomechanics and has extensive experience working with and significantly improving scoliosis in our clients.

organise your initial phone call

Your first session will be 90 minutes long.

Your initial consult consists of a gait cycle analysis (running and walking on a self-propelled treadmill) and static posture photos. This is captured in slow motion and reveals the more obvious biomechanical distortions and gives us a start point for your training.

It also acts as a reference point and can be referred to by your trainer specifically to assess your progress. Minimal gym clothing is required so the joints and the ribcage are as visible as possible.

Following this, we will take you through myofascial release techniques that may help you to get on top of any dysfunctions we have pointed out. Specific postural correctives, chambers and dynamic exercises may follow depending on how your body handles each level of exercise.

What Happens After My First Session?

So you have completed your initial assessment and session, what now? Your Biomechanics Instructor will discuss their recommendations while taking into consideration your unique situation and their assessment findings. Although estimating the duration of improvement of scoliosis can be like predicting the length of string, we do know that the more time you are able to spend doing your Functional Patterns training, the faster you will make progress. Most protocols include 2-3 60 minute sessions per week alongside homework. You can also include some group classes to practice your fundamentals.

Following your initial consult, we will continue to build on the techniques you learned through chambers, correctives and dynamic exercise. As gait cycle results are our number one metric to judge objectively your progress, we will usually take video again of running/sprinting/your specific activity during these sessions. Throughout your sessions, we will work on breaking down the dysfunctions that lead to your scoliosis and pain while building new, functional patterns. This will result in a dramatic decrease in pain and an improvement in spinal alignment while also improving movement, agility, strength, posture, aesthetic and overall quality of life.

And Finally, Your Result!

Our goal is to get you an incredible result. Our entire business and methodology is based around noticeably straightening spines and decreasing pain to the point where people cannot ignore the work we do. If you want to change your life and be our next result, get in touch and start your incredible journey with Functional Patterns Melbourne.
