12yo male. Diagnosed with scoliosis. Initial postural assessment (12/29/20). Between initial assessment and second assessment: 9 sessions over 4 weeks. Second postural assessment (1/30/21) shows more symmetry in the shoulders and ribcage as well as spinal decompression. Client reports significantly less discomfort and more mobility. Using only Functional Patterns techniques.
“These past 9 sessions have been incredible. I honestly thought that my only option to fix my scoliosis would be surgery but Greg changed that. He made me see a new path, a less painful path, one that wouldnt involve surgery but it would still fix my scoliosis. Ever since I started I've been feeling better, my back feels better, and I feel more energetic. I'm very grateful for Greg and his sessions. Without them I wouldn't have this high probability to escape surgery and I wouldn't have been able to feel as good as I do now. Greg is very knowledgeable in what he does he knows the names of many muscles and bones and how to adjust them so that they can tell my body to fix its scoliosis by itself.” - Yulio G.
April 2020 > September 2020 > November 2020 My client has been suffering from scoliosis for many years. He is an amateur baseball player, he often feels his body is so restricted when playing games. Therefore, he found us to make some change. We used @functionalpatterns training only to optimize his sprinting and throwing mechanisms. We can see some changes here: ✅ Improved scoliotic curve ✅ Improved joint stacking and scapula positioning ✅ Improved left lateral line compression ✅ Fat loss and muscle gain
Sometimes compensations/dysfunctions that we have reveal our personalities or our lack of abilities to face and solve the real problems. I don’t think I can change a person’s structure without changing what is inside of them. Still working on it. But this kid is getting more confidence because he knows how to use @functionalpatterns methods to maintain his posture. He is building a little machinist inside of him. That is very encouraging to see.
His scoliosis was getting worse every year. Practicing only one or two days a week wasn’t enough for him. So, I asked him to come to practice 6 days a week and also to pay attention to his own behaviors and consciously adjust those compensated postures on a daily basis. Five months later, we finally can see some differences and improvements.
