Overcoming Chronic Pain & Injuries

• “I’m finally moving in the right direction. I resolved my Achilles tendon injury and my joint pain and stiffness– JoAnn Siros (CrossFit Newbury Park Member)

After herniating a disc in my lower back two years ago and doing extensive physical therapy with only some improvement, I decided to go to Kevin. I am now playing competitive tennis and just did a triathlon. Kevin is a master in his field.” – Chuck Warshaver

• “After chronic hip pain of 22 years improved in one-hour. Kevin explained to me why I was in pain, which no one else was able to do.” – Lois Hansen

• “After one-hour I felt lighter on my feet and my range of motion, and posture improved remarkably.” – Helen Cobb

· “I have struggled with chronic jaw pain for years.  Despite wearing a mouth guard at night I still had constant tension in my neck and jaw.  Kevin explained to me that the laxity in my hamstrings, ribcage flare, and stressed breathing pattern is what contributes to this type of tension.  After doing one hamstring/core exercise in office and later that day, I spent the next day free of jaw pain for the first time in years.”Julie Nelson

• “After my last session with Kevin three months ago, I haven’t had any of my chronic neck or shoulder pain, none at all.” –Eileen Waldmann

•”A neck injury resulted in phrenic nerve damage which caused paralysis of my left diaphragm.  I had a nerve transplant and after 18 months of nerve regeneration, my respiratory therapist evaluated my left diaphragm function at 35%.  Kevin worked with me to train the muscles that support the left diaphragm and I am now at 80% functionality.” – Ed Plum

• I am 39 years old and I have had chiropractic work and massage in the past, but I am now more flexible, stronger and faster than I have been in my whole life. – Kenny Aschbacher

• “Kevin’s help in rehabbing my shoulder has been more effective than Mayo Clinic Physical Therapy.” – Mary Schwartz

• “I tried a whole bunch of other things and nothing worked. Kevin was my last option before getting surgery. Between getting surgery and going to see Kevin, I decided to make the investment. Kevin gave me back my ability to run, my ability to train, he gave me my life back essentially.” – Lucas Thomas

· “I have struggled with vertigo for years despite chiropractic adjustments.  After three sessions with Kevin doing core stability and vision exercises my vertigo is now gone.”  - Linda

• “I’ve utilized Active Release Technique, foam rolling, and massage in the past.
