I am no stranger to setbacks, injuries, and overcoming obstacles. A few years ago, I found out the daily low back pain I had been having was due to a fractured spine. My L5 vertebrae was slipping forward on the S1 vertebrae and was confirmed to be unstable. When I bent forward it would cause a further slip.
Determined to not let this get the best of me, I became obsessed with healing myself and avoiding surgery. I drove hours to see multiple specialists, read multiple books from some of the leaders in spine biomechanics, and thankfully I was surrounded by awesome health professionals. After rehabbing my spine for almost a year and a half until the pain finally started going away taught me so much about myself and the human body. It taught me how important optimal movements, postures, and positions are for removing the cause of pain and giving the body an opportunity to heal. It taught me how important staying consistent and persistent is even when you are down.
Being in the physical therapy field and seeking out further education helped me immensely, but there is something to be said for living it as well. The lowest point in my life turned out to be one the greatest gifts. It allowed me to gain a level of empathy and relate to others that I would have not have gotten otherwise. I enjoy being able to give my best to help others on their journey, just like so many people have helped me along the way.
In gratitude and health,
