After the doctors diagnosis I knew surgery was not an option. I decided to look for another plan. I had tried rest, chiropractics and working out on my own. Nothing had helped. After the doctors diagnosis I thought I was doomed to live in pain as I was limited to how much anti-inflammatory drugs I could take. After being so active all my life I thought I would never be able to do just the “normal” day-to-day chores again, at least not without a lot of pain.
Then one day I ran into a friend who was in excellent shape and asked her about her workout. She had been and still is a regular at Ashley’s Holistic Movements classes.
I called Ashley and together we formulated a plan of starting with 3 times a week in private sessions. I had been walking incorrectly due to the pain I was in. Not knowing walking incorrectly exasperated the problem. Ashley immediately got to work on my body alignment.
We stretched my legs and hips where they needed to be stretched and strengthened the muscles in my body that were weak. It took five weeks but suddenly I crossed a threshold.
