I was first diagnosed with Idiopathic Scoliosis when I was 14 years old. I developed an S curve with a 40 degrees curvature on my upper body and 32 degrees on my lower body. My parents and I were very worried when we were told by the doctor that I may have to go for operation. We worked and prayed hard to find an alternative solution that does not involve surgery. God answered our prayers when a chiropractor introduced us to spine cor and from that day onwards I never looked back.
Initially I thought the spine cor braces would limit my activities but I was wrong.
I love to dance and enjoy sports such as rock climbing. The braces are so flexible that after awhile it feels like my second skin. I could dance and do rock climbing in it. I could wear normal clothes as the braces are fitted tightly to my body and cleverly concealed under my clothes. Unlike the other braces, spine cor is quite suitable for our climate as I did not feel uncomfortable wearing it even in places without air conditioners. Spine cor has turned out to be the support I needed most. I felt secured and strong with it as it strengthened my posture and spine. In fact, it lessened my back and muscle pain whenever I did my daily routines. I never thought I would be so dependent on it. Whenever I was not wearing it, I felt a big part of me was missing. Now I am almost completely weaned off the braces and only wear it whenever I have backaches. Even though my spine will not be perfect but my curvature has improved and I am no longer considered a high risk case that requires surgery.
I received a lot of support from friends, family, chiropractors and also the staffs at the chiropractic centre that I went to and I would like to thank them especially Dr Moira Robertson who has been with me from the beginning until now where I still go to see her for my regular reviews.
