Research being conducted by medical bio-mechanical engineers is lending solid scientific credence to this approach to re-building the fascia. Every day, in the scientific community, the fascia is gaining a higher prominence in its role in movement, structure and function.
Our past six months with ABR and Adam have been nothing short of extra-ordinary. The upper two thirds of his vertebral column have straightened. This resulted in some rather dramatic shifts in the pelvic floor and a twist in the sacrum and illiacs. The coccyx became more pronounced. It appeared that change was moving downward.
Change, however, it not without transitional consequences. For months, Adam couldn't sit in his wheelchair because of the resulting discomfort. After consulting with Leonid, we began egg rolling along the illiacs, soft ball rolling down the sacrum and egg rolling along the hip bones toward the pubis. We have noticed a resulting change in alignment of the pelvic floor. So, now the boy is sitting comfortably and much more serene.
We have maintained between 3.5 and 5 hours of ABR daily and we have chosen not to take a day off until the comfort issues were resolved. I think that we are there.
Our greatest fear was the 8 hour ride to Montreal, but with intense ABR and perhaps a small dose of valium, we will make the return trip. Given the week that we have chosen we were able to double up training sessions on Wednesday and Thursday next week and compress four days into two. We are excited to gain more skills, newer exercises and a renewed enthusiasm.
