Scoliosis affects many different aspects of your life but one of the most self esteem knocking ones is the general appearance of your body. As teens at this time in our lives, we want to have that amazing figure that every girl dreams of - but of course scoliosis can't let that happen. Instead, it causes us to have uneven hips, wonky shoulder blades, rib humps on front and back and an overall slouching position. Because of this, we're forced to wear baggy clothes that hide all of this. This is not how things have should be. We can't let our scoliosis stop us from wearing what we want. We can't let it make us feel upset and self conscious. It is so important to learn to rise above this and realize that you are perfect the way you are. Scoliosis does not make you ugly or unatural. You are you and you are beautiful. Keep fighting.💪💚🌻

In all forms, early diagnosis of scoliosis is a primary goal. Treatment is always focused on slowing or preventing progression of the curve. I recommend all children between the ages of 8-15 receive a scoliosis screening. If you'd like more information or schedule your child's scoliosis screening, please contact my office at (954) 567-1332 or visit cantorspine.com.
Gray has absolutely no chill. Cuddling for the first time in two weeks. I’m figuring that Gray does not have ringworm as he hasn’t shown any lesions yet, so it’s cuddle time for the Gray bae.
It’s kind of boring when you’re stuck in one room all the time. 😒
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of 🎶 NYC thanks for the memories! 🤩
Thank-you everyone for all your well wishes, prayers, and of course gifts! Michael’s casting went well and we are looking forward to putting this all behind us soon! #scoliosisstrong

Hace 15 años yo fui un patito feo. Llevaba el Corsé de Milwaukee y estaba rellenita. Si yo ya era una niña muy sensible e introvertida esto no ayudó.Y por supuesto sufrí Bullying en el colegio.
Todos los días al llegar a casa del colegio rompía a llorar. No entendía porque con lo que ya estaba sufriendo llevando el Corsé, tenía que aguantar las burlas de mis compañeros. No era fácil tener una mesa especial, muy grande e inclinada. Con una silla con ruedas más alta, estar siempre en un rincón y al final de la clase puesto que sino tapaba la pizarra a mis compañeros. Se me caían los libros cada dos por tres cuando no me los tiraban a propósito. Recogerlos era difícil y doloroso. Sobretodo cuando mis caderas empezaron a desarrollarse.
Fueron unos años muy duros, difíciles y tristes. Mis amigas tampoco me apoyaban mucho. Yo era llamada oficialmente Terminator. Y a veces Robocop. Ellos no sabían lo que dolían esas dos palabras. ¿Pero sabéis qué? Todo pasa. Tu cambias. Aprendes a quererte y a ignorar lo que dos o tres capullos digan de ti ya que ellos no te importan. Creces y tu mente contigo. Cambias. Para bien. Y cuando pasan los años esas personas que tanto daño te hicieron han cambiado. Para mal. Y tú te ríes porque ves como cambia la vida.
No permitas que las palabras de personas que no te importan te influyan. Son palabras vacías. No importan. Piensa en ti y en quererte.
PORQUE TU VALES MUCHO

The poses you avoid the most, are the ones you need the most💪
Since my back is weak, so is my core. This yoga wheel is AMAZING for core workouts💥, AND helping you stretch! Not to mention FUN!
I want to give a big THANK YOU to all my friends and followers showing my posts love ♡ I may be doing this for myself, but you can never have too much support in life😘
I have stared at this for far too long. I can't believe how much has changed in a year. 🙈
I often hate talking about money so I avoid it like the plague, but I want you guys to know that this is my legitimate job !
My insanely fun job! It is my job to take pictures, to be present on social media, to take care of myself, and to help other people. Heck yes this job takes work, but for those who are willing to learn, anything is possible !
For a good chunk of last year I was a senior taking 18+ credit hours. I was travelling A LOT, sometimes to see the babes I work with IRL. I spent the last few months wedding planning. I tell you all this to remind you that everyone's life is crazy, you can do this too! I'll show you how I did it !
If you want some info on how to make this happen for you, fill out the form in my bio, and I'll reach out to you! 🦄
My arch nemesis... meet ELDOA for rib 10!
So many moving parts, so many body parts to manage. So many muscles to engage and a rib head to decoap!
So important for mobility and rotation of the thoracic spine! Especially for those of us with scoliosis, golfers, fencers, baseball and tennis players! •••
I will master you rib 10 and 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 11 and 12!

When someone catches you off guard, you know you're on the right track.
Do I love what I do? Apparently & clients take notice. It's the best gift, when you receive such thoughts.
So if you have any questions about why I do what I do & what my purpose is, the answer is to your left.
If you're questioning yourself to hire a trainer & you're looking for someone who can relate to your physical limitations, stop looking & DM me.

Finishing up rounding on my patients this evening and got to see this lovely young lady who is staying at the Ronald McDonald House! Kaylee is doing very well and I am so excited to see her recover beautifully. Thumbs up for Kaylee and thank you to the team at Ronald McDonald House for welcoming our out of town patients!!!
is complete! Thank you for each and every prayer today. Plain and simple, today has been HARD, harder than I expected, but we are grateful that the procedure went really well. Even though Whit is exhausted, frustrated, weepy, and is re-learning skills that require balance (the cast is 4-5 pounds & makes her VERY top heavy), she still lights up a room with that infectious smile in the midst of a storm! Thank you Lord for all our blessings!

Read it again. Let it resonate. Do you know how many times someone has said to me, “Becky, I love your posts,and I’d like to get in better shape. I just can’t do what you do.” I’m here to tell you that you can! I do a 30 minute workout, and I eat real food. Is much of it healthy? Sure, but it’s delicious too! I also eat cupcakes, mac and cheese and I love the turtle pecan blizzards from DQ. 😋
I don’t deny myself. I am far from perfect. I don’t have six pack abs or a perfect body. I am healthy and fit, and happy for that matter. ...
So, whatever it is that you want to change-your body, your job, your relationship, your study habits, whatever! Get out of the comfort zone, toss the excuses out the window and do it! Not everyone will be supportive and not everyone will understand because even positive change is hard. Don’t get discouraged. In the end, you will be happier and you will be an inspiration to someone else. 💕
" Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is what you learn on the way down" -JIGAR GOR
This resonates with me in the deepest way possible. The simplest stretches and poses can be incredibly difficult for me. Scoliosis makes everything a challenge. To even just stand or sit, I have to mentally tell myself 24/7 to adjust, and sit proper. "Don't let your shoulders tighten up to your ears. Don't let your pelvis sit tilted forwards. Don't put all your pressure on your right side. Don't stand on the outside edges of your feet." The list goes on. But through yoga somehow I find peace in it all, peace in myself. And for that I am grateful💝
What is the difference between ultrasonic minimally invasive spine surgery and laser spine surgery? Ultrasonic technology makes "precision" spine surgery possible. Painful bone spurs are dissolved from the inside out. Only what is pinching the nerve is removed. The normal and necessary structures of the spine are not disrupted, and function and normal mobility are preserved. Learn more at cantorspine.com/neck-surgery

Every day is a work in progress. Sometimes because of the cold my back aches, it's sore & I don't want to do anything.
That is NOT an option. To keep as mobile as possible with limited mobility, I do what my body allows me to. Why? Because I'VE GOT WORK TO DO!
My body stays healthy my body stays strong. I'm not "jacked" that's not my world. My world is long term, staying safe to my limitations & keeping my flexibility.
Tell me your long term goals & what your intentions are.
If you're body is limited through a spinal fusion, scoliosis or just good old back pain (not really), tell me about it. DM me for help.
