The Crooked Truth

This is my spine....not so straight huh?
But can you see how well my body has adapted to keep me upright?
My tailbone & C spine are stacked right on top of each other.
The beauty of the human body is its ability to heal itself.

The truth about me, is that I cannot train like a person who doesn't have scoliosis.
I have aches and pains that most people don't regularly have.
BUT what I do have is the knowledge of how to heal myself.
I know what I need to do to keep my body healthy.
Training single sided helps me to neuromuscularly learn how to counter balance my imbalances.
Now that I have been through injuries and gone months unable to train,
I understand that beach muscles only tighten me in places my body should be open & fluid.

Vanity aside, I want to be pain free.
I want to make smart choices.
I want to be able to explain to someone in pain that is can subside.
That we need to learn how to adapt.
How to train our brains to understand that we are all different.
Balance, is the key.
