In this episode, Linda discusses what a rare condition infantile scoliosis is, what it's like to be part of her son's physical therapy team, and the big gains her little patient is making. Evan's pediatric physical therapist joins her.

July 17, 2014: Back pain is common, but for Barbara Jones, it created a domino effect that affected her whole body. As a teenager, she had rod fusion surgery to address a severe case of scoliosis. Years later, she had back surgery again to address symptoms of degenerative disk disease.
In this episode, she and her physical therapist discuss how these conditions didn't just affect her back, but her whole body. She had severe tightness throughout her whole body that affected her mobility and ability to exercise, and ultimately caused her to tear a rotator cuff.

What is our true potential to heal and awaken? Sara Chetkin has a powerful personal story to share about her own healing journey, as revealed in her critically acclaimed book The Healing Curve: A Catalyst to Consciousness.
Diagnosed with severe scoliosis at the age of fifteen, a curvature of the spine causing debilitating back pain which often leads to deformity and loss of mobility, Sara embarked on a life path of astonishing discovery, profound healing and dramatic spiritual awakening. Sara traveled the world in search of healing for body and soul, encountering gifted healers and shamans. Ultimately she realized the key to healing and awakening was releasing her own deceptions and illusions, embracing true humility and acceptance of her place in the Universe. Her life completely transformed, Sara finally saw through the blinding limitations of her own fears, unfolding a life of true Joy and vitality.
Now a Ro-Hun therapist and an ordained minister, Sara has a BA in Anthropology from Skidmore College and an MS in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the New England School of Acupuncture.
An interesting synchronicity, Frontier Beyond Fear host Susan Larison Danz was also told she had scoliosis at a young age, though thankfully a mild case.
"As thoughtful and thought-provoking as it is inspired and inspiring, Sara Chetkin's introspective commentary on her personal life experiences is a deftly written and thoroughly engaging story from beginning to end." - Julie Summers, Midwest Book Review
