Four months in the suit and what has happened to my spine is nothing short of amazing. The results so far are what I was hoping for but truly not expecting to be possible, this is scoliosis after all.
To be very honest, I’ve been having a tough couple of weeks with my scoliosis activity suit. I really haven’t wanted to wear it, I have not been walking as much as usual, and I was even questioning if there is much benefit to using it during pilates and yoga which is all I have felt like doing.
I know that the suit is working for me but I also know that the most beneficial way to see results is to walk in it or use it during exercise that is weight bearing and standing on the legs. That being said, this week I learned that it can be worn different ways for how you are using it. For example, you can remove the tension bands during longer periods of sitting or standing and put them on for moving activity like walking, cleaning the house, gardening, dancing, etc. Learn more about the suit.
The most exciting result, besides decreased pain, is that I’ve grown taller! Today my height was measured at 5’0″ which I haven’t been since, well, maybe ever. Usually I measure around 4’11.5″ (the .5 is important!!) Now, on top of feeling more open and generally in less pain, I’ve grown taller! What this really means is that my spine has untwisted enough to significantly measure the difference. I’m so jazzed about such a positive result!
On another awesome note, I recently learned that one of my friends also got a Scoliosis Activity Suit. She is unique in that she has also had multiple spinal fusion surgeries in her teens. Her results so far are that she feels the benefits from it such as her back feels more open. How about that?! She also mentioned having a lot of fatigue when she wears it.
I totally relate to the fatigue. Working the deep spinal muscles that haven’t seen that kind of action in a long time, if ever, is exhausting. So, I guess the lesson we have learned thus far is to take it slow. Ease into wearing it at first and listen to your body when it needs rest. Know that every time you put it on it can help, even if it may seem insignificant at the time.
To date, the Scoliosis Activity Suit Experience has been a very positive one. I am so grateful to have found something that works so well!
