New Series: Helping my Dad Avoid Back Surgery (35 year veteran Fireman with JFRD)

The new video goes live on Thursday,1.18.24, at 9 am EST

In this next mini-series, you get a look into working with my Dad, a retired firefighter of 35 years, getting him to become pain-free and reducing his intake of tramadol. In this video, we sit down and talk about his current and past history of injuries and pain and what his goals are through this process.

I hope you enjoy this – much more to come over the next two weeks as we start the intake and assessment, then move on to the gym, where we find what makes him feel better and worse.

As an aside – I first noticed that my Dad was hurting when we watched a movie in January of 2023. He was sitting very awkwardly, so this started the conversation about his back. He told me his leg and butt were on fire. It only got worse from there!

Edit: I’m going to go more in-depth in the coming weeks with this series, but a quick note: 

I’ve had the chance to work with many fabulous clients over the years. It’s different when it’s your own Father, and he’s in rough shape, and you can see how much his back injury impacts a life that should be enjoyable as he’s now retired. Helping people with their back pain is not something I take lightly. I’m thankful my Dad has trusted me with his care. I’m not going to put out all of what we went over/and have covered together, but as we go through the physical coaching & assessment in the following video then, the third video will be current with an update on his improvement and follow-up; you will see the difference in his posture, movement, and general disposition as he’s currently feeling much better. Stay tuned.
