Hi, I’m Dr. Steve Gardner, chiropractor, practitioner of Network Spinal Analysis Care.
I’m going to you talk a little bit about scoliosis. I know it can be a big concern for many people, not just because of how it looks and feels, but it even starts to compress the organs when it goes unchecked.
It may seem like that scoliotic curve is a fixed and permanent. But once you’re under care, you’ll be noticing changes. And all of those changes have to do with your spine becoming more flexible.
What that flexibility will feel is like will be completely unique for each person, depending on the stress and trauma you’ve been thru over the course of your life, going all the way back to when you were born.
It’s those areas of the spine back there that have been traumatized, abused, wounded, neglected, so much so that they’ve been pushed out-of-sight, out-of-mind; It’s those areas, being right alongside your spinal column, right where the spinal cord is that communicates between brain and body, it’s those unresponsive areas that make so many health problems seem insurmountable.
What I do is follow what you’re physically ready for, guiding you with my hands very gently, just on the edge of what you’re inclined to do on your own initiative. So that way, even between your care sessions, no matter what you’re doing, you’ll be enticed to continue unwinding all the stress patterns that have gripped your posture for so many years.
Your posture is a result of how you posture yourself naturally throughout the day, without having to think about it. And that’s what I hone in on, what you do naturally. (That’s where the sustainable, life-supporting changes are.)
That way, the flexibility will grow on you no matter what you’re doing – any activity: Whether you’re sitting at a desk at a computer, or something more active like playing soccer, or playing with your children, or playing a violin, or cleaning house. We want that flexibility to grow no matter what the activity or position has to be.
Now, I know with scoliosis we think of the curves that deviate off to the side or rotate, but we’re going to be working with the front-to-back curves as well, so there can be more breathing room between the segments of the spine. Otherwise, it can be like a traffic jam back there, where nothing can move.
You’ll see such a big difference once you’re under care. And it will be my pleasure to help you.
