My spine might have limited mobility but that doesn't mean the rest of my body can't work. - A few kettle bell halos with a press keeps my upper body flexible & strong. Though my scoiliis causes me to have perfect posture that doesn't mean I am allowed to NOT contract my abs, keeping them compressed. - The extension of my legs while keeping them straight with me feet flexed is just as important. - If you are someone you has scoliosis or knows someone who needs guidance please reach out. - - - #scoliosis #mom #thisismylife #scoliosissurgery #scoliosisawareness #scoliosisstrong #ballet #flex #kettlebellworkout #militarypress #bentandbroken
tb to #funktionx a week ago where I saw MY ALL TIME FAVORITE DANCERS 😱 @kayceericeofficial @seanlew #kayceerice #seanlew #kayceeandsean #dance This was the first time I am brave enough to go and see a dance showcase after my spinal fusion surgery. It was definitely hard for me watching awesome dancers doing what I could be doing but unable to. #spinalfusion *a little bit of background: There are rods and screws in my back that holds my whole spine up straight, therefore I have lost total flexibility in my back for specific moves like chest bumps, body rolls, back bridge, ...* #dancejourney Even though it was emotionally hard to watch, their energy has brought me so much inspiration and appreciation for young talented dancers like them 💃🏻💃🏻 thank you all for a great night ❤️ #scoliosissurgery #scoliosis #spinalfusion
being constantly bombarded by images of perfection has made me feel self conscious about my back many times. As someone who’s back wouldn’t be described as “flawless” I kept seeing these images of ideal bodies and spines and I constantly fell into this cycle of wanting what it seemed like everyone else had. If you’re beautiful and a Victoria’s Secret model, you have to have a perfect spine right? No, look at @marthahunt We need more people like her to redefine what “beautiful” means. YOU are beautiful WITH your flaws. Perfect is unrealistic and boring. If everyone Redefined their definition of beauty, soon the industry would also change and we could overcome this feeling. So what is beautiful? You. #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #redifinebeauty #change #marthahunt #victoriasecretfashionshow #scoliosisawareness #scoliosiswarrior #scoliosisstrong #bentbutnotbroken #victoriassecret #scoliosisprobs #scoliosisbrace

I want to apologize that i was so inactive. I go to school now and i also write tests. I obviously forgot to post. I had no stress but i did so many things like meeting friends, going to school... What ever, i'm back and i'll try to post more. I have no pain and i feel very good. My scar is healing very well and yess. Nothing special. Sometimes i feel uncomfortable because i can't bend or stuff like that but it's ok🤷🏼‍♀️ • • • • • • • • • • • #skoliose #skolioseop #scoliosissurgery #sugerery #scoliosis #scoliosisawareness #scoliosisstrong #scolifam #scoliosiswarrior #scoliosissupport #scoliosisstory #scoliosisgirl #backbrace #pain #scolio #scoliosisbrace #scoliosisfamily #backpain #skoliosekorsett #skolioseinfoblog #skoliose #skoliosefighter #skolioseseite #spinalfusion #bentbutnotbroken

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Part 3 of 5 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this video I show you the remaining movements with the pelvis, then introduce you to ’hand drivers’. This is simply a way of using the hand/arm to create an unconscious reaction throughout the body. • You’ll see how by simply moving your hand you will actually start to move your pelvis. • Try 3-5 reps of each movement. Take it easy when you first do this movement as you don’t want to be too sore the next day. • Part 4 coming soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag someone you know who would like this. #Scoliosis , #Ribhump #SpinalRotation #Upperbackflexibility #ScoliosisSurgery #BentButNotBroken #ScoliosisExercises ,

"Be willing to allow your challenges to become motivation" 🖤 It has officially been 11 years since I had my spinal fusion surgery that left me with two titanium rods and 19 screws running down my spine. Every year, I am reminded of the impact that the 11.5 hour surgery to correct my 60 degree curve has had on my life. 🖤 While it may always be difficult for me to stand for extended periods of time, lift heavy items, and participate in sports without pain, I try to allow my personal challenges to fuel my drive to succeed in the areas I know I can excel in. 🖤 Over the past 11 years, I have had countless opportunities and so much support as I work to follow my dreams and pursue my creative business. From designing and self-publishing two books to starting my business right out of college to working with incredible clients and everything in between, I try to take time each year to celebrate how far I've come. In so many ways, I've accomplished more than I ever thought possible after learning about my scoliosis diagnosis. 🖤 For anyone struggling with something out of your control, my advice is this: focus on the positives, focus on what you *can* do, keep trying, and never give up. Hard work pays off and you are almost always capable of more than you think you are, regardless of the challenges you face. And always remember to be kind... everyone is fighting their own hard battle. . . . . . . #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #scoliosisawareness #scoliosiswarrior #scoliosisfighter #surgery #smallbusinessowner #creativeentrepreneur #hustle #followyourdreams #challenge #challengeyourlimits #challengeyourbody #risingtidesociety #tuesdaystogether #communityovercompetition #letteringartist #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bodypositivityishard #curvedspine #hiddenbattles #nevergiveup #peoriaartist #hellopeoria #peoriaillinois #rushmedicalcenter #rushhospitalchicago #rushhospital #xrays
When people think of scoliosis i don’t think they grasp the full spectrum of it and what it can become if left untreated. This is Amiyah’s spine. She currently has a 50 degree Thoracic curve. I believe God made her and all the other #scolikids extra extra special! • • • Never doubt #godsplan ✨🙏 • • •

It is hurting to walk, I can feel pulling, tearing and sharp pains. My pain level is getting high. Everything feels like it is shifting again. I know my head has fallen more, even with this brace. The crunching and hurtful popping I have in my neck to mid back is getting crazy. It is so weird to feel my spine popping and shifting especially when 95% is already fused. It is sad that I get in so much pain I am actually wanting surgery. On the other hand, I know I'm blessed because after recovery I lose some pain and many zebras do not. In two days I get to be reminded that there is an extremely high chance I will be awake for intubation. That's always fun. These are the things you get to look forward to after being fused from occiput/skull to T1. Be that as it may, I am so blessed to be able to take steps again. Lucky that, I don't know anything else but to be my positive self even through these dark and hard times. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Therefore, I will continue to smile, I will continue to fight. I know I got this, because I'm Shorte with the stripes! @themightysite @ehlers.danlos #MiraclesAndMesses #MyCrazilyCurvedStory #AlwaysLookingForward #FusedFromSkullToPelvis #MyStoryMyStrength

Эстафета от @remedgroup #сколиоз_флешмоб_rmg Приняла от @meduniza_psy передаю @pugacheva.nv До моей дружбы с титаном, а она началась в июне 2018 года, я вела активную спортивную жизнь. Плавание, йога, ролики, тренажёры. Даже все это не смогло удержать мой позвоночник. А мануалка его расшатала. Могла ли я знать тогда, что эти манипуляции усугубят моё состояние, что мануалка противопоказана сколиозу? Нет конечно!! Все же говорят, только Я и моя супер метода в силах вам помочь!! А мы верим и хватаемся за все возможные варианты. Я не исключение. Моя искривленная опора стала гнуться и появились боли в спине и в ногах. В итоге: 🔖 Грудопоясничная деформация позвоночника четвёртой степени (грудной 65° поясничный 70°), 🔖 грыжи дисков L3-L4, L4-L5. Листай⏩⏩

2.5 years, 20kgs bodyweight added and 50kg added to my bench press. • It’s a huge transformation, and it’s helped me a lot mentally. But I genuinely think I’ve gained more mentally than physically, when I started this I hated my body, I was insecure I had no morals or hard set values. • Now I am confident in who I am, I have morals that I abide and live my life by and I will stand up for the issues and people I care about, that is seriously where I have gained the most. • #addedasolid8 ”tomyheart
Vor genau einem Jahr um diese Uhrzeit sah ich noch so aus und die Op war nur wenige Stunden entfernt. Als ich ins Bett gegangen bin war ich überraschend wenig aufgeregt. I habe mich hauptsächlich gefragt, wie es wohl sein würde wenn ich aufwache. Das war tatsächlich meine größte Angst, die Vollnarkose. Ich hab natürlich gehofft, dass alles gut gehen würde und gleichzeitig war ich einfach irgendwie positiv aufgeregt und wollte es endlich machen. Heute, genau ein Jahr später hatte ich den normalsten Tag überhaupt. Ich habe 8 Stunden gearbeitet und mich entschieden kein Sport zu machen, sondern auf der Couch zu liegen. Wie jeder normale Mensch. Wer hätte das gedacht, ist fast schon enttäuschend wie normal ich mich fühle 😜 . One year ago today at this time, I still looked like this and surgery was only a few hours away. When I went to bed I was not half as nervous as I thought I would be. I was wondering what it would be like after surgery. What it would be like to wake up. That was really my biggest worry, the anesthesia. I hoped everything would go well during surgery, but at the same time I was weirdly excited and just wanted it to finally happen. Today, one your later, I had the most ordinary day you can imagine. I worked 8 hours and then decided not to go to the gym but lay on the couch instead. Just like any other person. Who would have thought, it’s almost disappointing how normal I feel 😜 . #scoliosissurgery #spinalfusion #scoliosis #skoliose #scoliose #skoliosis #wirbelsäulenoperation
Part 2 of 5 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this post I introduce the sagittal plane and frontal plane hip drivers • These exercises help strengthen the obliques, abdominals, Quatradus Lumborum (of the side that is down) and erector spinae. In addition you are providing strength training to your down side hip, shoulder and neck. • Try 3-5 reps of each movement. Take it easy when you first do this movement as you don’t want to be too sore the next day. • Part 3 coming soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag someone you know who would like this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Scoliosis , #Ribhump #SpinalRotation #Upperbackflexibility #ScoliosisSurgery #BentButNotBroken #ScoliosisExercises ,

Take 2. I've still got a few things to work on. My left shoulder has s few issues. Though it has definitely got better through rolling, correctives & some hard core release it is apparent that upon landing the impact is more aggressive then on the right. - Continue to work on the not so exciting but necessary's are exactly that, necessary. - Working out doesn't always mean fun, crush it, burn with fury! It also means being mobile. Being able to pick up a can of paint (I just painted my daughter's room), putting something down without feeling your lumbar get struck with pain. Reaching to the top shelf to put a container away that is packed with summer clothes. - It means to move effectively. My body is sometimes compromised to do exactly that. My back gets tight, it's cold, my back hurts. I stretch , I get warm, I get my body mobile. I can move. - If your body is compromised by a spinal fusion because of scoliosis & you are in need of guidance please reach out. - - - #take2 #plankrotation #plank #scoliosis #thisisme #thisis48 #spinalfusion #stretch #scoliosissurgery #scoliosisstrong #trainer #coach #mylife #scoliosisawareness #rollingstones

Member Spotlight, Dr. Cristina Vila. Why do you do pilates? In her own words: “Im a new devout true believer in Pilates. I have a medical history of scoliosis and back surgery for it 21 years ago. I began experiencing lower back and hip pain about a year ago as an expected side effect of my spinal fusion. My physical therapist recommended I start pilates for core strengthening so I joined club pilates. After my free intro class I was automatically hooked, I felt soreness in muscles I had not felt in years, and even though it was challenging to do the exercises there was no stress on my joints because I felt the reformer was helping me. I immediately felt the difference in my back and hip. After a week of doing pilates I was pain free, which I am so thankful for. And now 3 weeks into my membership at club pilates I am doing daily clases and feel stronger and healthier. Its fun, every class is challenging, the studio is spectacular, and every instructor is amazing in their own way, but as a physician myself with medical issues what gave me the most confidence in trusting them with my care is that they are safe and many of them have extensive medical knowledge. Don’t think that means they are gonna take it easy on you, they are just gonna make sure the exercises you do are tailored for you to get a safe and effective work out. I have already encourage many of my friends and family members to try it out, and I will recommend it to anyone of any age looking forward to becoming more active and healthy”. Cristina V.

We are all still a work in progress. My body isn't "perfect," whatever that means. I have worked and worked to get to a mind set where I can mentally & physically take on new challenges. - Today's movement was a goody. While not having any spinal rotation, I was still able to do a rotating plank. - This was my first attempt. As you will see, I caught my fall. Without previous work, I would not have been able to do so. - My spinal fusion prevents any spinal mobility. HOWEVER! There's more of my body that is. - If you have scoliosis & are in need of guidance please reach out. - - - #rotatingplank #plank #stretch #glorykickboxing #rollingstones #bodywork #scoliosis #spinalfusion #scurve #scoliosissurgery #scoliosisawareness #scoliose #isshereallygoneforgood

Okay here’s a little fact about me: when I was 2 years old I was diagnosed with scoliosis. Scoliosis is the curve of the spine. In this photo I have rods and screws holding my spine in place ⬆️. Every six months I would have to go back and they would lengthen them or something. I had my last surgery when I was 12. I had a total of 29 surgeries (yes, if you did the math that wouldn’t be right) I “broke” my back 3 times. I still have pain everyday, but I am forever grateful. Omaha, Nebraska Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, Thank You!!! 🙏🏼 #omaha #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #nebraska #surgery #thankyou #thankful #blessed
It is a couch day today and I don't care! Oh the pain is intense and tough today. However, I'm SO PROUD of myself... You see I have still managed to not take prescription pain meds of any kind before and up to surgery. This is because I have so many allergies to meds and by body has such an immunity to meds as well. So if I start now, trying to control it afterwards during recovery would be even harder! Also, I am strong enough to say this now... I was very addicted to pain meds. It was so bad, it almost took my life. Well these surgeries are a bit hard to do without pain meds so I am taking all the necessary steps I can to get relief after my surgery and only be on pain medication for a month at the longest. Two weeks is my current goal though, two weeks after the time I get home I would love to be off pain medicine. I constantly feel like I'm in a catch-22 situation. However, I HATE what pain meds do to my body. Therefore, I will conquer this with my strength. Addiction and chronic illness is tough but today I'm tougher... on my couch. 🖤💙🖤 🦓 🦓 🦓 #InvisibleIllnessWarrior #InvisibleIllness #AlwaysLookingForward #BrainBleed #FusedFromSkullToPelvis #Scoliosis #ScoliosisWarrior #ScoliosisFighter #ScoliosisSurgery #TetheredCord #EDS #EhlersDanlosSyndromeKyphoscoliosis #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #ZebraStrong #MentalHealth #MentalHealthAwareness #MentalBattles #MyCrazilyCurvedStory @themightysite @miraclesandmesses @ehlers.danlos @edsawareness_official
Bent and Broken 🥴🤷🏼‍♀️ #scoliosis #spine #bentnotbroken #scoliosissurgery #spinalfusion
"She is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future. Proverbs 31:25" . . . I found out I had scoliosis when I was 13. It hit me after puberty as it does with many people. I went to the doctor and he told me my curve was 35° and that we would keep an eye on it as it was too bad for a brace but not bad enough for surgery. The next year, my curve had gone up to 45° and we continued to keep an eye on it. I started going to a massage therapist who helped a lot but when at my next appointment when I was 17 my curve had gotten to 57° we decided that spinal fusion surgery would be the best option for me. I had my surgery on April 7th, 2017 and I got 2 titanium rods and 20 screws in my spine. I grew 2 inches as a result and my back pain has decreased immensely. I'm happy to say that with the help of God, my family and my friends I am back to doing everything I was doing before my surgery. Plus, I now have a pretty kickass scar! Its 14 inches long! (PS. They dont check for scoliosis in normal doctors checkups! Make sure you ask your doctor to look at you or your childs back to see if anything looks off!❤)
