Avoided Hip Surgery
“At age 68, it seemed pretty normal for me to have chronic pain from osteoarthritis of my right hip. Many of my friends had already had hip or knee replacements, so walking with a limp without much pain meant that I was doing quite well.
To avoid limping so much, I had been using walking poles on my three-mile daily exercise walk for the past four years. I also used to stumble slightly when I got up from a sitting position (meaning that my hip would feel like it was “giving out”). And I had pain at night when I rolled on to that right hip. My orthopedic surgeon told me I would need a new hip in a few years.
I was amazed and pleased that after three months of working with Anna Forliti and doing my daily posture exercises, I am pain free and limp free. I have not used my walking poles since. I no longer stumble or feel like my hip is giving out when I get up.
I did not believe this kind of recovery was possible. Postural Healing allows my body to return to its original (younger) alignment and then whatever is wrong with my musculoskeletal system reverts to its normal and healthy state.
Rather than treating a specific problem or disease, this therapy encourages the body to revisit its normal postural positioning so it can heal itself. I highly recommend seeing Anna Forliti. She is a superb and compassionate healer and person.”
