Show Notes

This is part 1 in our stigma series.

Brandy Novicka recently joined our team at The Doctor Patient Forum. Brandy is a resilient spinal advocate living with multiple conditions, including spina bifida occulta, scoliosis, rotoscoliosis, kyphosis, rotated rib cage, spondylolisthesis, spondylosis, pars defect, drop foot, SI joint dysfunction, DDD, nerve damage, and more. Despite undergoing extensive spinal fusions and coping with chronic pain, Brandy has defied the odds by pursuing her passion for fitness and athletics. A former college basketball player, high school basketball coach, and aspiring gym teacher, Brandy has transformed her experiences into a powerful advocacy platform. Through her journey, Brandy has developed a profound understanding of pain management and adaptive movement. Embracing the reality that her body can't be "fixed," she has learned to adapt and adjust, inspiring others to do the same. Brandy's unwavering determination and positivity have made her a beacon of hope for those navigating similar challenges. She continues to advocate for spinal health awareness and support, empowering others to embrace their unique strengths and find resilience in the face of adversity.
