    I have alot of soft tissue problems, and the doctor thinks he can help me immensly. Its nice to go to a doctor who does NOT tell you to "stop lifting weights."

    It was crazy to feel all the places where my body was not symmetrical and had some sort of lumps or built up shit where I had pain. It was also very interesting to see how much smaller the the "build-ups" became with repetition of the treatment in one area.

    He thinks it will take 6-9 sessions for a full rehabilitation. Maybe I can stop getting prescriptions for prednisone now, and start getting the problem fixed.

    Thanks again for enlightening me on this type of therapy.

    maybe 30-45 minutes or so. Alot of time was spent locating the places where I had pain.

    Some of it hurt like fucking hell, but never enough to stop the process.

    Interesting, after my first consultation, my appointments were 9-10 minutes long and very painfull (the therapy)... I left feeling like a million bucks, but the pain was strong enough that 10 mins felt like an eternity.

    Um, it was like he found places on my body where I had pain, then matched it up with the other side to feel for symmetry (unsymmetrical = problem area...of course most of teh time he just know what was up).

    One example of the many he had me do was to lie on my stomach, then he gripped my pectoral minor with two fingers and a thumb, applied some funky pressure with a twisting motion as I drove my arm straight out then bent my elbow to put my hand behind my head. I could feel the lump he broke up shrink each time. That and another shoulder one were fucking excrutiating, but I left feeling much better.
