I think I always knew it would be important to keep moving, keep those muscles working — but somehow, along the way, I cut back on going to the gym and cut back on walking. Next thing I knew, I was 80 years old, in pain, and weak almost everywhere … legs, hips, back, shoulders. I had trouble sleeping, and getting out of bed, I couldn’t bend over to tie my shoes or pick up things that had fallen to the floor, I couldn’t get things from high or low cupboards, I had trouble getting into and out of my car, and much hip and leg pain when I drove more than just a few miles. I was a mess! Now … a few short months later … thanks to the wonderful staff at Therapeutic Associates … I am pain-free, and deeply committed to what is now my own exercise program, designed to go the distance with me. Jennifer was my therapist and was so very skilled, tuning in to my slightest need, or change – and her warmth and encouragement kept me dedicated to the program and eager to attend my appointments. The entire staff works as one, and I can’t say a big enough thank you.
