WOW! I have had problems with my back due to a construction accident when I was in High School… 30 years ago. Now, I am a dentist and have been practicing for almost 20 years. During that time, due to poor ergonomics and lack of physical/core conditioning, I have had my back go into spasm many times. In the past, I would seek help from a Chiropractor. I even had to resort to steroid injections…They would alleviate my pain, but not solve the underlying condition.
In July of this year, my wife and I were planning on leaving town for our anniversary and my back went into spasm so badly that I literally could not get off the floor. It was the worst that it’s ever been.
Matt Holbrook was kind enough to see me after his regularly scheduled patients at 6pm. I limped/crawled into his office, and WALKED out. Matt is a wonderful combination of intelligence, compassion, and unparalleled skill. He took the time to get to know me and my entire history. He asked poignant questions and discovered that a lot of my underlying problem was an imbalance that could be traced back to scar tissue from an abdominal surgery I had when I was 5 years old! Along with a lack of core strength, tight hamstrings and hip flexors.
That first session, he was able to release the spasm I had gently with functional manual therapy and he printed out exercises for me to do at home ever morning to increase my flexibility and core strength. He also recommended I start to take Pilates. I have been seeing him regularly since July and doing Pilates, and I have not felt this good since I was in my 20s!
Matt Holbrook is an incredible and truly gifted therapist and I recommend him to all my family, friends and patients. In fact, my wife recently suffered whiplash in a car accident. He has helped her out tremendously in her recovery.
Whether you have nagging joint pain or are debilitated by joint or muscle pain, you should give Matt a call…you will NOT be disappointed.
