New Series: Part 2 Helping my Dad Avoid Back Surgery (35 year veteran Fireman with JFRD) – the assessment

Part 2 video goes live on Thursday,1.30.24, at 9 am EST.

Editors 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 fourth 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.

In part 1, we did the interview process and found out what makes him hurt and feel better, as well as his symptoms and pains. In part 2, we do the physical assessment, which I do not show you in this video. However, I show you some essential parts of the assessment and how we identify his pain levels. We also work on ways to help remedy his pain. The prone shear test helps me identify which level or levels are impacted and potential remedies.

Stay tuned for part 3 next week, where we will review movement patterns and coaching, and I will give my prognosis. Part 4, which we just filmed (after 6months of healing) will be an update of where he is now, vs last summer. He is doing very well currently.
