A woman who suffered a case of a curved spine for ten years has told of how yoga-like exercises cured it.
According to the Huffington Post, Rebecca Berry’s dreams of travelling the world were abruptly halted when she was struck down by the crippling back condition.
For nearly ten years, she wore clothes more than four sizes too big to cover her spine and refused surgery which would have prevented her from walking for six months.
Instead Ms Berry, from Norfolk, contacted experts at Scoliosis SOS and found an exercise programme that cured her condition.
After a consultation, she began a four-week treatment of yoga-like exercises and massages – and her spine was corrected within a month.
Ms Berry said: “I feel like a new person now, my back is straighter and I feel like I look normal again. I have my confidence back and I am ready to travel the world.”
She added that she was also looking forward to buying clothes in the correct size, as opposed to ones that “look like a tent”.
