Past Injury, Present Pain
The Power of The Stance®

The Pain-Free Ann
The connection between a past injury and present pain was graphically demonstrated by Martha, whose painful right hip had not responded to medical treatment or chiropractic care. Through learning The Vance Stance®, Martha soon found out that the problem was deeper than a painful hip.
Seth, a man in his sixties, came to Dr. Bonner with an exaggerated case of one of the most common problems in older clients: a loss of mobility in the upper back that curves it forward and slumps it down. Seth worked with Dr. Bonner to stand tall, straight, and confident again.
What was particularly interesting about Louise’s case was the way Dr. Bonner got to the source of her problem. Louise, an attractive woman in her fifties, had pulled a hamstring in her left leg in a fall. Now she complained of an immobilizing pain in her left hip. But soon, she would discover much more.
Ellen, a waitress in her mid-thirties, came to Dr. Bonner with chronic lower back pain. She couldn’t afford many lessons, so Dr. Bonner decided to see how far she could get in just one session. Apart from her discomfort she was in very good shape, strong and limber, and had no other complaints.

He sat either too far back over his hips, so that his spine was stressed by squeezed-together abdominals, or with a swayback, which compressed the muscles of his lower back.
