Most people, as they get older, resign themselves to living with various sorts of pain and age-related health issues. Anna Pesce was one of them.
For decades, she had been living with a herniated disc, scoliosis and osteoporosis – all of which meant the 85-year-old grandmother walked around with a hunchback.
And then, in 2014, Anna nearly collapsed trying to climb a set of stairs while visiting her children.
“I had this horrible pain shooting up my back,” she told the New York Post. “I had to be carried up the stairs and put into a wheelchair for the rest of my stay.”
At that point, enough was enough for Anna. She had tried acupuncture and visited a chiropractor to no avail. This time she decided to enlist the help of certified yoga instructor Rachel Jesien.
Rachel, 28, specializes in back care – just what Anna needed.
