Some people go through horrible injuries and never go back to their full self, while others do.
This topic is deeply fascinating for me, I decided to do a follow up interview with Chris after the publication of his testimonial a couple of months ago.
I think you will find it hugely inspiring and motivating.
Chris was hit by a car at age 8, and was in so much pain and discomfort that by age 21, his mum offered to buy him a walker.
He followed his intuitions to help restore balance in his body through physical training and therapy with mixed results. One of the modalities he found to help him like nothing else was swinging the pahlavandle.
Listen to the interview to find out how far he’s come when adversity was paving the road. It’s truly been an amazing road to recovery, and a great testimonial to how attitude can work for you or against you.
“I can’t say enough about the amount of shoulder and back health and even hip health (Heart shaped swings into an overhead squat are FANTASTIC for connecting tricky hips to tricky shoulders in a functional way) I’ve regained in the last 2 weeks. It’s like 10 years of progress. When I lift my arms now my core starts to automatically engage! This is after 2 weeks! It’s almost a miracle.” -Chris Webb-
