Scoliosis is a condition that affects over 4 million patients in the USA.It can be caused by a bone abnormality at birth and traumatic injury, and standard treatment is usually a spinal-correcting brace, depending on the age of the person affected, or surgery. Many studies have shown one vital component for healing this condition: exercise.
A story of one grandmother that took her health into her own hands and was miraculously cured of her curved spine.
Anna Pesce suffered from her back condition for a long time, but at the age of eighty-six her health hit rock bottom .She went on a trip to Wagener, SC to visit her family members in 2014,her back was in anguish, and she suffered through the vacation instead of enjoying .
“I had this horrible pain shooting up my back,” says Pesce. ““I had to be carried up the stairs and put into a wheelchair for the rest of my stay.”
It took some time but it had finally caught up with the New Yorker. But Pesce refuses to accept her painful condition as fate.
“I tried everything: acupuncture, a physical therapist and seeing a chiropractor,” she explains. “You feel good temporarily, but (I’d be) in pain again soon after.”
At that time Anna Pesce’s daughter introduced her mother with Rachel Jesian, a certified yoga instructor and back specialist.
They decided to give it a try and began working on stretches and restorative poses. Pesce enjoyed the process and gave it her all.
After one month, she could walk .
“After two months, another big milestone was that (Anna) knew what poses to do whenever the usual pains would come up for her,” says Jesien. “For example, if she was having hip pain, she’d sit on a chair and do an ankle-to-knee pose.”
Rachel Jesian discovered back-restoration yoga when her massage therapist gave her a recommendation after a series of futile treatments.
“I had to wear a back brace for five years and went to physical therapy every week, but this was the only thing that worked,”
“I feel wonderful now because I can drive by myself and do the things I wasn’t able to do before,” Pesce says. “I would recommend this to other people.”
Yoga has been shown to prevent/heal:
– Diabetes type 2
– Heart disease
– Coronary heart disease
– Weak muscles
Anna Pesce’s showed that yoga can cure scoliosis.
Doctors should recommend yoga instead of offering drugs and treatment that may never work.
Live long and healthy life…
