“I am a senior with essentially untreated scoliosis which was diagnosed when I was six years old. Despite the severity of the curvatures, I did very well until about three years ago when I began to experience muscle spasms and difficulty standing for more than a few minutes. I have depended on walking as my primary exercise, but got the the point where I could not walk more than twenty yard without having to sit down. My internist and my orthopedic doctor could only offer pain medication which I knew would need to be continually increased. At an International Scoliosis meeting in Boston, a patient introduced me to Dr. Moramarco. Dr. Moramarco started me on a series of exercises to expand my lung constriction and to help reduce rigidity in various parts of my spine. Now there are days when I do not need to take any pain medication and many days when I can walk a mile without sitting down. This has set me on a path to continue being mobile and to prevent lung complication during these senior years.”
