Patient Praises

Two plus years ago I was able to:
Run, bike, hike up long steep hills 7 or 8 miles, and workout with weights at the gym. Two years ago, I also started yoga. I hurt my lower back while doing an upward dog and downward dog (quickly) when I first began yoga. I continued to run, bike, hike, lift weights, and do yoga. I began to notice I was getting weaker. For example, I didn’t have much strength when trying to pick something up. I began doing more and more yoga. Eventually I noticed it was painful in my low back/right hip area when I rode in a vehicle. This area over the last two years continued to feel tighter and more uncomfortable. It felt like my right hip and right leg were in a vice (tight, weak and constricted). I thought more yoga would help. The discomfort eventually was felt in the right calf (upper right side of calf). At times I thought the pain was subsiding, thus I would do lots of squats, lunges, hike etc. The pain would come back with a vengeance.

Eventually I had to stop running, biking, hiking, lifting weights, swimming, and doing yoga due to the pain! Even going up stairs and being on uneven ground was and continues to be uncomfortable. Putting my shoes and socks on continues to be a challenge.

Currently I’m improving thanks to Turning Point!! I am able to walk 5 miles a day and do all my PT exercises. I’m beginning to feel less pain and stronger in the back hip area:) Thank you Mike.
