(Minghui.org) Hunchback is a common form of spinal deformity that can be congenital or caused by spinal trauma or tuberculosis. It not only affects the sufferer’s appearance, vision, and freedom of movement but may also lead to paraplegia if it gets bad enough.

Treatment for hunchback usually includes posture correction, orthosis correction, and/or surgery. Surgical correction can be a bit risky, especially for the elderly with a 90-degree hunchback.

However, there are a group of people whose hunchbacks have straightened without medication, corrective devices or exercises, or surgery. They achieved this through practicing Falun Dafa, an ancient spiritual discipline.

20-Year-Hunchback Straightened Up in Three Days

My name is Wu Weiyu and I live in Yishan Village in Liuzhou City, Guangxi Province. When I was 50 years old, my back began to curve. For the next 20 years, there wasn’t a single day my back, which was almost 90-degree hunched, didn’t hurt. I went to many places to seek medical help and spent all our savings on medications, but to no avail.

Whenever my son heard that there was a good Chinese medicine doctor somewhere, he would take me there. He often said, “If my mom’s illness can be cured, I am willing to spend everything I have.”

One day, a neighbor named Ms. Li Fengyun told me that she knew someone whose decades-long hunchback was cured within a year by practicing Falun Dafa. She recommended that I practice it.

She gave me a booklet with cultivation stories about Falun Dafa practitioners. I finished reading it that afternoon.

That night, I started to feel something rotating in my belly. When I mentioned this to Ms. Li the next day, she said, “You’re destined to learn Dafa! You are already given the Falun just by reading that booklet.” She gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, and told me to study it well. Then she began to teach me the exercises.

I understood many principles from reading Zhuan Falun, and I realized that all the hardships and tribulations I had suffered were caused by the karma I had accumulated life after life. Now I can repay my karmic debts through cultivation in Dafa.

I got up at 4:30 a.m. on December 25, 1998, three days after I began to learn Falun Dafa, and went to the park to do the exercises. I had only learned the first two exercises and still couldn’t sit in the full lotus position.

On my way to the park, I felt a bit different and very light. My belly also felt very relaxed. Over a dozen people were already there. When we were doing the second exercise with the music, I heard my backbones cracking. Everyone could hear it. I felt I could gradually straighten my back and began to stand up straight, like everyone else. In the past I could only see as high as people’s calves, but now I could see the backs of their heads!

For 20 years, I had endured humiliation and pain, and I didn’t know the purpose of life. But now, Dafa’s Master picked me up from hell and gave me a healthy body. I couldn’t describe my feelings in words. I said to Master in my heart, “Master, I will never be able to repay your kindness and compassion!”

When people opened their eyes after the exercises and saw me standing up straight, they were overwhelmed by the miracle. Everyone was in tears. We pressed our hands together in front of our chest and thanked Master for his immense compassion and salvation.

Not long after, in July 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Dafa. The police once ordered me to write a guarantee statement to give up Falun Dafa. I wrote: “The Master of Falun Dafa is the kindest person on earth. I owe so much to him that I can never repay his kindness. I am determined to follow Master in this life, and life after life, forever and ever.”

On July 28, 1999, two reporters came to my house with a camera. They tried to force me to read a prepared script, saying my hunchback was cured by taking medication.

I said, “I was hunchbacked for nearly 20 years and my life was a misery all that time. The government never cared about me. Now, Falun Dafa’s Master Li has cured me, but you want me to betray him and do things against my conscience. There’s no way I’ll do it.”

A police officer warned me, “If you don’t cooperate with us, we will send you to a labor camp.”

No matter how they threatened me, I stood my ground. In the end, they left, achieving nothing.

84-Year-Old Hunchbacked Woman Straightened Her Back

Ms. Chen Meihe, of Chinese descent, was born in Burma on January 16, 1920. She used to be a fashion designer and was involved in designing Levi’s jeans. She also ran her own fashion design school. She believed in Buddhism since childhood and has four children.

In 1996 when Ms. Chen was 76, her eldest daughter Ms. Zeng Baoguo told her about Falun Dafa. Soon after, her heart disease and high blood pressure disappeared. Her younger brother is a doctor, who used to always bring her medications every time he visited. Later, he no longer needed to do that because she had become so healthy.

In 2004 when her daughter Ms. Zeng visited her in San Francisco, she noticed that her mother was badly hunchbacked.

“When my mom was doing the second exercise, her position wasn’t quite right,” her daughter said, “so I pulled her hands up higher and heard a crack in her back, which straightened up instantly. Since then, my mom has been able to sleep on her back comfortably.”

When she was in her 80s, Ms. Chen often went to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to people in front of the Chinese Consulate. “Mom is a very kind person, and she never gets angry,” her daughter said. “Cultivating Dafa has made her happy. She always said she wanted to live to be a hundred years old, and she did.”

Ms. Chen celebrating her 100th birthday

On her 100th birthday, she received a congratulatory letter signed by then-President Trump and his wife. Former First Lady Melania Trump said in the letter: “Congratulations to you on this beautiful occasion and wish you a happy 100th birthday. We wish you and your loved ones a beautiful and glorious day. We are inspired by your enduring strength and spirit. We celebrate this grand milestone moment with your family and friends.”

“I Can Finally See the Backs of People’s Heads!”

I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and a medical doctor in Beijing’s rural area, and I run my own clinic. In 2001, a 27-year-old man from Chaoyang County, Liaoning Province, came to see me. He had had pain in his lower back since he was 17, and over the years he had become hunchbacked. He was bent over 45 degrees and had been looking for a cure for the past 10 years, but nothing helped.

He told me that one night in a dream, a voice told him to seek medical help in Beijing, and he saw the face of a doctor.

His aunt was living in my neighborhood, and he stayed at his aunt’s place when he went to Beijing. His aunt brought him to me and asked if I could help him. Seeing the severity of his hunched back, I said, “I have been a doctor for over 40 years, but I have to be honest with you—I can’t help you. You should find someone else to fix your back.”

The young man said, “The man I saw in my dream was very much like you. Only you can help me.”

I couldn’t turn him down and began to treat him. I was able to treat two of his other ailments but not his hunchback.

I remembered Falun Dafa and told him about its miraculous healing power. I also clarified the facts to him about the persecution. “You can try practicing Falun Dafa,” I said. He listened carefully and agreed to give it a try. I gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun and taught him the exercises.

He came to visit me at the clinic 23 days later, and his back was straight! He told me excitedly, “Doctor, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your help. For the past 10 years I could only see other people’s heels. Now I can see the backs of their heads.”

I told the young man, “Don’t thank me. It was the founder of Falun Dafa that helped you. You should thank Master Li.”

Editors’ note: Falun Dafa is extraordinary and magnificent, and its mighty power reaches both the macrocosm and the microcosm. The case detailed in this article is just a tiny manifestation of the power of Dafa on the level of the secular world. While Dafa can bring blessings to humankind, Dafa's extraordinariness and magnificence are more for people to return to their true origins.
