I tore a disc in my lumbar spine in December 2009 and had nerve blocks, epidurals, pain killers, PT, acupuncture, swimming, massage therapy and Pilates out in the DC area for seven months and still couldn’t be out of the house for more than two hours, sit for more than 30 minutes or even walk my dog.
I moved out to San Diego in August 2010 and found an excellent Pilates instructor who enabled me to be out of the house for several hours without using excessive pills. My instructor told me that I was so bound up that if I wanted fast results I needed to see a Rolfer who specialized in Egoscue to ensure that I would stay loose and properly aligned. She knew Matt b/c one of her other clients saw him, but I was a little skeptical at first because Egoscue seemed like a new age PT regime.
My goal when I saw Matt in late September 2010 was to dance at my wedding, and that gave him two weeks…He gave me plenty of exercises to do and I’ll be honest – at first I was doing every single one of them twice a day, but then I wanted more sleep, so I slacked off, BUT I did dance at my wedding!
If you want someone who will make you feel like you’re getting pampered, don’t see Matt; go to a spa. If, however, you want to get better and feel better, then please go see Matt.
