"THIS IS MY BACK!!!" : Jillian, 5 years after getting her 60+ degree scoliosis fixed as young adult takes her new posture to a new level!
One of the benefits people often comment on after kyphosis and scoliosis surgery is the big improvement to their posture, which helps improve self-image.
This past week, I received this nice note from one of my postop scoliosis young ladies, who is doctor of physical therapy, who is now five years out from her scoliosis corrective surgery. She had a very large right rib hump preop and oblique shoulders, and had a dramatic improvement in her posture since then. She actually has helped treat many of my patients with scoliosis across the age spectrum in her physical therapy practice since then.
Recently, she has taken her body to a whole new level doing body building. She sent me several pictures that she had taken recently that show her back musculature well, and her great posture.
She said it would be ok to share one of these photos with you, and we’ll see about getting a print made as she requested to hang in Hey Clinic!
In addition to suffering with pain, and progressive deformity, many times I have met young ladies, and young gentleman who seek to hide their spinal deformity under long hair, sweaters, sweatshirts and the like. That’s a lot different from this encouraging message from “J” ---
