Testimonial Tuesday – From Nearly Disabled to Running Again!
I wanted to let you know how much Egoscue has helped me. I’m now doing two hours a day in the tower, generally 5-6 days per week along with about 20 minutes of other egoscue exercises. I’ve been doing it for over six months now after previous Egoscue exercises for about a year and a half. I resisted the two hours a day in the tower once you suggested it a while back, but since I tried it, it has changed my life. Egoscue has always helped, a big, big help from the beginning, but the two hours a day has been phenomenal. As you know I suffered from chronic pain, especially lower back pain, for over 25 years, and was nearly disabled many times. I took the highest level medically possible of pain medications for over 15 years, and just barely functioned from day-to-day. I could hardly travel for periods longer than an hour and had difficulty sitting through a movie. I limped and could barely get around. Now, I rarely, if ever, take any medications.
I recently went on a 5 day airline trip to Vegas, followed by a four day driving trip, alone, of over 1,000 miles the next week, and took no medication. I did my egoscue routine every day with the collapsible tower and inflatable pillow. I now drive approximately 300-400 miles per week across the state for my work and often stay overnight- virtually no problems- if I keep up my Egoscue routine. I’m not exaggerating when I sincerely attest that I feel more comfortable and mobile driving and traveling today with my Egoscue exercises than I did in my late teens and 20’s.
To quote a cliche- at 58, it has truly given me a new lease on life. I can now do regular walks and some running, which I had stopped years ago. I was approaching my later years in life with trepidation wondering how was was going to get around as I got older. My back and pain just seemed to always be getting worse, and I was getting less and less mobile, and this was with daily “stretches” and weekly, sometimes bi-weekly chiropractic sessions. My approaching golden years now look golden.
Thank you and Guilly in New Orleans who first trained me on Egoscue. And please thank Peter Egoscue. I hope he knows he has given me my life back. I know he’s done this for thousands of others. Please let me know if he ever comes this way. I’d love to meet him.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I think it’s safe to say, Dan is living life. In short, he’s living fearlessly!
