Egoscue Newport Beach, CA
Here's what some of our clients are saying about our Newport Beach, CA clinic.
What a fantastic surprise it was to find I could feel better. I've read the books, met with the clinicians in Newport Beach and followed a variety of menus for about 6 months. Now I feel a tremendous improvement in my physicality. I seldom have any pain at all, despite participating in a sport that punishes mistakes and maintaining a demanding workout and life schedule. I feel taller, straighter, more limber. Without changing anything else in my exercise routine, I now feel my walking stride is longer and "swingy-er" and my legs are in longer, stronger contact with my horse when I ride. I run up the stairs and skip down them - even mundane chores are more enjoyable when one feels good!
And, my relative is working with Egoscue via Skype to reduce her pain and experiencing results too!
An MRI says I have a bulging disc in my lower back and the pain can go as high as an 8/10 to a 3 on a daily basis. A surgeon told me to have the disc removed and the vertebrae fused and that would correct the problem. When I asked about being pain free, he replied "it's really a coin flip." Being the type of guy not to leave my wellbeing to chance I pushed on to other avenues.
I've always been active and not being able to do the things I love took its toll, not just physically but mentally too, I wouldn't call it depression but more of a sense of helplessness. What frustrated me was the somewhat all-consuming thought of doing something to cause more pain, knowing now, the lack of movement added to the root cause. With modern advancements in medical treatments one might expect a more holistic approach to treat both the symptoms and underlying root cause, I'm here to tell you it doesn't work that way.
While I can't say Egoscue has gotten me to be pain free yet, and I stress yet in that statement. I am so much more self-aware of my movement, posture and body position. I'm proud to say that my pain is very manageable with the highest getting to a 3 and most days less than that.
Being a very goal oriented individual I've committed to myself to continue with daily e-cises for 365 days in a row, no days off, no cheating but rather investing in my wellbeing. When I attend appointments Mita, Elliott and Britney are all super positive and supportive and send a encouraging emails and voicemails to check in on me. Thank you for my progress and I look forward to more of it!
