My name is Tris Ann Gaydos. I am a wife and mother of two sons. In November of 2014 at the age of 46, I was Diagnosed with Cervical Dystonia.
I have created this blog to share my journey with Cervical Dystonia and a later diagnosis of Oral Dystonia (Meige's Syndrome) as well.
I made the decision to take a non-traditional approach to my healing by using Functional Neurology along with traditional medicine and wanted to share my story.
As a young dancer Elaine Petrone suffered a crippling back injury. Orthopedists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and others told her she might never walk again without a cane. Unwilling to accept pain and inactivity, she set out to find a way to heal herself. Her quest for health in the world of alternative medicine and body work resulted in the creation of her own method of pain relief- The Miracle Ball Method. She discovered that by letting her body’s weight be absorbed by two small balls, breathing fully, and performing some simple un-exercises, her own body was able to cure itself. She has dedicated her life to showing others the power of the balls and of their own bodies.
I have used these everyday to stretch my aching neck, hips, arms, etc...
