Hello I’m Kim!
I’ve been diagnosed with scoliosis at my upper thoraic a very young age and was recommended to start swimming to help my spine. I went into competitive swimming and over the years, due to the complication of the sun and chlorine – I had to stop swimming.
I ventured into yoga and light weights training. Due to my flexibility, I injured myself and had a annular sprain (L3-L4). I wasn’t able to sit, run, jump or do any activities that had impact for 3-4 months. I couldn’t even sit down for more than 20 min without pain. I was adivsed to do physio and pilates as rehab.
I did Pilates/ rehab for almost 4-5 times a week. I started from scratch with really ‘easy movements’ and couldn’t understand why i had to do them knowing i was stronger. Over time, i realized it was about Control and Movement and not the amount of ‘strength’ or ‘sweat’ i had in a class. With Pilates- It has elevated by lower back issue. I do not suffer from lower back pain any more unless I do too much flexion exercises. I’m very careful with myself since.
I decided to pick up Pilates and to learn about this wonderful exexrcise method. I incalculated this into my personal weight training as well- being more careful and wary with placements and control.
