Because of Greg and his amazing staff of trainers and therapists, I have my life back. I regularly play golf, tennis, long bike rides, and workout!
I have always had back issues as an adult, but managed to ‘just deal with it’. As I got older, the pain – similar to a pinched nerve or bulging disk – cause me to quit many of my favorite activities. Finally, in 2015 when I couldn’t even walk my dog a block without turning around in pain I saw a surgeon who diagnosed me with Spondylolisthesis (the displacement of one vertebra compared to another).
In my case, the S5 and L1 were out of sync. I worked my way up the ladder of suggested remedies – massage, acupuncture, PT, epidural injections in my back, and a even some ‘not approved’ options but nothing helped. Finally, in 2016 I was resigned to needing the last possible solution – surgery.
That’s when I met Greg at a seminar called ‘Strengthen Your Back for Golf’. By video taping my golf swing he was able to see some structural issues that were causing my back to under so much stress. He also showed me a photo of what my back would look like with a rod and pins, and described some of the potential new complications I could experience. He suggested a 6-month program of core strengthening to get my body in alignment and better support my back. I signed up that day and haven’t looked back.
Because of Greg and his amazing staff of trainers and therapists, I have my life back. I regularly play golf, paddle tennis, long bike rides, dance, workout, walk my dog, and in 2017 I celebrated my 60th birthday by easily completing the 7.5 mile Bay to Breakers race in SF!
