I am a single Mom of 2 young daughters and my favorite pastime is holding them on my lap. About a year and a half ago, I started having pain in my hips that I ignored. The pain traveled to my lower back and the back of my thighs and became so excruciating that I could not sit up in bed in the morning. I knew I had to do something. So, I went to a chiropractor for a number of months. Then, I tried decompression therapy for a few months. After that, I tried a series of corticosteroid shots in my lower back. I was wearing a back brace from the moment I woke up until the moment I went to bed. I hadn’t been able to hold my princesses on my lap in over a year and it felt like their childhood was quickly slipping away without me being able to hold them. I was desperate and considering surgery.
Then, a work colleague told me about Dr. Gianna and Fluid Physio. In 3 short months of working with Dr. Gianna, I no longer wear the back brace and my pain has decreased exponentially. I am able to snuggle my daughters in my lap and that is the best feeling in the entire world. Working with Dr. Gianna has enabled me to start Pilates so I can make my body strong and be there for my children. Dr. Gianna has given me my children, motherhood and my life back.
