I have had scoliosis for almost as long as I can remember. When I was in elementary school, my pediatrician told my mom not to worry about the fact that I seemed to be leaning over, that it would sort itself out. Finally, in middle school, an orthopedist confirmed that I had scoliosis severe enough to qualify for surgery.
Surgery came with a laundry list of drawbacks, including a possible recurving of the spine, so my parents sought other options. My family spent thousands of dollars and I spent hundreds of hours seeing chiropractors, wearing a thick plastic back brace, eating limited diets, taking expensive supplements – we even tried hypnosis. The curve and pain in my spine didn’t improve, and by the time I had graduated from college, I was feeling burnt out, frustrated and helpless.
I don’t feel that way anymore. Now I’m 28 years old and I’ve been working with Dominic once a week for a few months. For the first time in my life, I stand up a little bit straighter. My shoulders and hips aren’t as sore as they always have been. After feeling let down by a myriad of treatment options, I wanted to give up and ignore my scoliosis.
I am so thankful that I reached out to Dominic and began treatment instead. I feel like I have the tools to live with a straighter and more pain-free back. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with him – he customizes everything to my specific needs and motivates me to take control of my body and health. I am so excited to continue this process with Dominic and I am so grateful to have finally found something that actually works.
