“This is a heartfelt thank you to Taiga Whole Health and Margot Freitag for the effective assistance in recovering from a painful and prolonged lower back injury.
Eleven weeks ago I woke one morning with debilitating lower back pain. I could not remember a specific accident but had recently returned to demanding exercise classes as well as spending an afternoon swinging a gas powered weed-eater around our cottage lot. After three weeks of taking over-the-counter pain killers I read the fine print and decided to stop taking them. The symptoms continued, I could stand and walk pain-free but when I sat for more than one minute the pain in my lower back and down my left leg was excruciating. In addition, I had to sleep on my back with my legs hooked over a stack of pillows. During the initial assessment with Margot she found that my pelvis was misaligned. After six consecutive sessions of therapy with Margot, daily exercises and walking I was able to sit for lengthy periods and to sleep on my side.
The outstanding component of this treatment was the on-going assessment and personal care. I received daily calls from Margot monitoring my symptoms, progress and exercise regime. In this way Taiga Whole Health offers a unique and effective injury recovery program.
Thank you Taiga Whole Health for providing treatment to relieve the debilitating pain I was experiencing, and for continuing to provide information including exercises to maintain a healthy life-style for my lower back.”
