After many years of playing sports, stress, and a severe car accident, I found myself in a lot of pain. My shoulder, neck, and back area were a mess. I couldn’t even raise my hands over my head because it was so painful. I had been to a doctor been prescribed muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medicine which didn’t help. Then I decided to undergo physical therapy which didn’t work. I even tried acupuncture which also didn’t alleviate my pain in my shoulder. I found it difficult to run my business and take care of my children because of the pain.
I was referred to Karen at CIMT by a friend of mine who saw me at a dinner party and could see how much pain I was in. I had tried everything else why not try manual physical therapy. After just one session with Karen, I was able to raise my arms over my head. It was unbelievable. If anyone had told me this story, I wouldn’t have believed them but it was true. I started getting treated by Karen every week for months and my pain started to diminish to the point where I am pain free. Manual therapy was the only treatment that worked for me.
Now I was able to go back to doing my yoga classes which I wasn’t able to do because I couldn’t hold myself up in “plank” position or any other position. It was just too painful.
For anyone who is suffering with pain, I would highly recommend Karen’s practice. She takes time with her patients and is committed to getting you pain free.
