From KNEE and HIP pain while walking to pain free, unrestricted exercise
"When I first saw you, I was having trouble walking. Stepping wrong would put me down for over a week. Yesterday, I played tennis for the first time! Yeah, I'm sore, but I did it!.. I cried the first time I came in, right?? Yeah, I'm sure you get that a lot... People get convinced that they're locked in a space thinking that there's no escape. When you see a change, it's unbelievable."
Neck, shoulder, and arm agony to clearing out an entire house (or three)
"I remember seeing my grandfather have pain in the neck and arm when I was 7 or 8. When this started, I thought life had to be like this for the rest of my life. He was around 70, so I have what, 43 more years of this? After the sessions we have had already, I've cleared out my grandparents house, broken up concrete, carried appliances, and slept on the floor. There's no way I would have thought 5 weeks ago that I could be doing this right now."
Neck and back pain one year, skiing the next
"When I first saw you, I remember that anything would flare up my neck and back pain. Snow fell off a tree and hit my car - I was flared up for 3 months. I bumped into a doorway - 2 weeks of pain. You showed me a different way to look at pain and medication. I have not taken pain meds for over a year - I don't even carry them around any more. I was able to teach my granddaughter how to ski. I workout every morning. I lift heavy weight. I cycle 20 miles without even thinking about it."
