I would like to share my story about pain, disappointment and salvation, no matter how pathetic it may sound...
As a child, I had a spinal injury. No measures were taken to prevent the consequences. Many years passed, and when I was at university, my back started hurting. I decided to take a picture of the spine and go to the manualist. At the reception, I learned that the vertebrae in the thoracic section were not formed correctly. The muscles in the area of the injury were clamped. After a session of bone-healing and acupuncture it became easier, but the manualist said that there was nothing to be done, it would be necessary to live like this. Well, I lived like that. Until at some point, I did not feel that everything was getting worse. The patient's back was very spoiled, the whole body was suffering.
I started going to the doctors. Doctors put me a lot of diagnoses (scoliosis, osteochondrosis, torsion, etc., etc.) and began to treat. I did not see the results. Problems only worsened. After a while, I realized that in my case they are powerless. There was nothing to do but try to solve the problem on your own.
Began to look for a way. I did not deduct anything good, basically everyone wrote that this is a very complicated process and I need a quality specialist. In the specialists at that time, I was, to put it mildly, disappointed. Finally I decided that I should at least start something for the back and, in search of exercises, accidentally got on video, in the title of which it was said: "thoracic department", "treatment", "osteochondrosis" and all that.
This video was about an hour long. In it, a man on the beach practiced yoga. Voice-over voice calmly commented on what was happening, and the background was pleasant music. I decided to try it and started to study every morning.
It was very hard. Everything was pulling me, it hurt and ached. It was difficult to repeat, sometimes unbearable. I could not do even half what was required. But I was patient. Literally on the third day, I felt relieved. Various constrictions, pain and anxiety began to go away. The discomfort in his back was getting smaller. Every time, finishing the exercises, I felt that I was getting better. And after a couple of months I felt myself again a healthy person. For me it was a turning point in my life.
Since then, I began to practice yoga every day and advise everyone on it. The man in the video was Vyacheslav Orlov. I do not know him personally, but he helped me a lot.
I express my deep gratitude to him! 🙏️

All of the above I did at my own scare and risk. I do not call anyone for anything and I do not impose anything on anyone. I had a problem that I tried to solve. Without a professional accompaniment, this is all very dangerous. There are also some nuances. For example, if you start doing something, you will most likely have to do this for the rest of your life, because problems will return or get worse, if you decide to quit. Also, you need to do everything carefully, because it's easier to hurt yourself, than to help.
Responsibility will be entirely upon you, if you decide to do something.
