Evie

I am a practicing physical therapist, and I was diagnosed with FAI in my left hip in 2013. My MRI arthrogram showed a small posterior labral tear, but no arthritis. Two orthopedists told me that I should have surgery because I have retroverted hips with deep sockets and my acetabulum should be shaved down. This […]

I had extreme pain in my groin, inner thighs, hips, tailbone and SI joint area for five years straight on both sides of my body. My lower back was also extremely bad and would give out often.  Later on, even my knees started giving out and having pain. It was never ending and got worse […]

Years ago I ran five Triathlons, 3 sprints and 2 olympic size ones. It was a fun thing to do as my forties started, and I figured a great way to get in shape. However, it took it’s toll on my aging body and things started to hurt all over. Two years ago, my back […]

B.K., Former NFL Player

After more than a dozen orthopedic surgeries during my high school, college, and NFL career I thought my days of dealing with injuries were behind me. Over the course of the last couple of years I noticed a burning pain in my right hip that steadily increased. As the pain got worse I found myself […]

I recently came across your channel and found many of your videos extremely relieving as well as beneficial. I had been suffering from FAI for about a year now. I’ve had many low points due to this and have been slightly depressed for a while. Prior to that I had about an 8 month long adductor strain. […]

Thanks again for the awesome session! Thinking back, it was helpful to meet in the gym to actually go through the exercises with weights. I had never met a physiotherapist/osteopath in an actual gym which actually is a bit bizarre. The diagnostic testing you do is really key. Most health professionals take a narrow approach, […]

I first saw Matt in September 2016 for several pain and discomfort issues concerning both hips, my right shoulder and toe. It’s been five months since I started seeing him and my hips are much better, my shoulder issue is controlled, and even my toe has improved. About 8 years ago, I started having discomfort […]

I had been challenged by hip mobility for many years as the result of an inflammatory condition. Pain was just part of a typical day – which was incredibly draining. One session with Matt over Skype provided me the tailored methods to reduce the issue. Following a relatively simple protocol, I received a step change […]

Wow!  That pretty much sums up my experience thus far at Upright Health.  There’s few times in my life where I would feel this excited to write a review, but I guess there’s a first time for everything :). I do olympic lifting and I was having a hard time going all the way down […]

When I started with Upright Health, I didn’t know much about the origin of my body’s tension, weakness, or pain. I just knew that I was uncomfortable and tense, and I didn’t have the knowledge or tools to get better. Matt and Josh have answered all of my questions, spotted areas of weakness, and helped […]

Dr. Pam P.

So, briefly about myself, I am a 60 year old physician, and if I can’t fix myself with non acute musculoskeletal issues, I don’t usually go to the doctor.  I’ve been lucky enough to have sought out massage therapy, chiropractic treatment, and have gotten involved on my own with yoga, Alexander technique, and the Egoscue […]

I was starting to develop chronic hip pain, something that had been building up over years. I finally went to a well respected hip surgeon at Stanford and she told me to STOP stretching in certain position because of the way my hips were shaped. She said stretching in this position would only grind my […]

3 years ago I had developed (seemingly out of nowhere) a real weakness and pain in my right hip. Simple tasks like walking up hills were a challenge as I could barely put much of my weight onto my right-hand side. Things got even worse when riding the bumpy London subway, as my hip would […]

I have a herniated disk in my lower back, and I could see I was losing strength and muscle, so I decided to seek out a trainer. I was partnered with Vincent and he was great. We discussed my goals and talked a lot about what movements strain my lower back, and from there he […]

Happy new year! I’ve been wanting to send you an e-mail thanking you for all of the work you and Shane put into the FAI Fix program. The program helped me get my life back together. My story: I’m an avid cyclist and cycling is an integral part of my life. In April 2014, I […]

I teach and practice Aikido, a martial art that involves rolling, falling, and knee-walking. Beginning in 2010 (when I was living in Japan and practicing Shotokan karate as well as Aikido and Japanese swordsmanship) I was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis in my left hip that eventually resulted in bone spurs and constant debilitating pain. I […]

Prior to starting with Vincent, I was concerned about being able to stay interested in training. I had tried a few trainers before, but none were able to keep my interest for long. It’s amazing that I have been coming to Vincent for almost two years now. Since then I have seen a significant increase […]

Here’s my story: About eight years ago, in the midst of the very emotionally, mentally and physically draining process of separating from my husband, I awoke with some pain in my right hip. It wasn’t excruciating, just noticeable, and it made getting around a little more challenging than usual. I thought it must be a […]

Tamsyn E.

When I first started, I had not engaged in any activity or sport for well over 5 years. Needless to say I was very out of shape! I was terrified at my first session, but that feeling quickly went away… Since then, I’ve dropped 40lbs and increased my strength and overall health dramatically. I never […]

I have worked with many trainers over the years with little to no results, so I was reluctant to continue spending more money on trainers. Vincent came recommended to me, so I gave him a try and, to my surprise, I saw immediate, drastic improvements in my fitness. As of this writing, I have been […]

Nagmeh S.

I have had MRI’s, tests and visited with several PT’s for several years to find a solution for my neck and back pain. I have done hours of research trying to find a solution and the right place, were they are not your “typical” PT telling you to go home and do all the “typical” […]

I was born with congenital hip dysplasia and walked around with a completely dislocated hip until 2 years old when I had major pelvic surgery (osteotomy) to reshape the right hip joint. I was very active throughout childhood and as an adult- cheerleading, running, skiing, what I now know was excessive yoga, mountain biking/ spin […]

Five stars to Matt and his team at Upright Health for all the help I got in dealing with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Just before starting with Matt and Kristen, I was walking with a limp and I couldn’t sit without feeling a constant pain in my right hip. I was waiting for my scheduled FAI […]

Evan A., Scientist

About two months after starting a desk job, my right hip started hurting. I’m 23, active, and a clinical self-diagnoser, so I tried all kinds of stretches and exercises on my own. Of course none of this worked because I didn’t have a fundamental understanding of the problem. I was feeling pain, discomfort, or tightness […]

Bonnie T., Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

I woke up one morning in January 2016 with nagging anterior hip pain. 3 days later I couldn’t get out of bed or walk without crying in pain. 3 weeks later an MRI showed bilateral labral tears in both hips, but only one was inflamed in soft tissue and bone and there were bilateral tiny […]

Matt is, by far, the best trainer/physical therapist/person who can help you fix whatever is wrong with your body I have encountered, and I have encountered far too many (over 20). I  have had problems with my hip, back, and shoulder for over 5 years and have been told that I have FAI, a labral […]

Alex K., Student

I’ve been lifting weights for about a year now, flipping from program to program without truly understanding midline stabilization or motor control. I found Josh’s channel by accident and immediately started implementing his cues, and I saw a significant difference in all my movements and also saw where my mobility restrictions were. These guys are […]

 I found Upright Health, because after five years of CrossFit I started to experience pain while squatting in my IT band. It was hard to describe and didn’t happen all the time. It felt like my IT band was sliding or shifting whenever I would do a squat. I didn’t want it to get any […]

Cinna W., Facebook Software Engineer

Three years ago, I started working at my first desk job as an engineer. Two years into the job, I started to experience a lot of neck, shoulder and hip pain. For months, I tried everything I could think of – ergonomic evaluations, multiple physical therapists, medications, chiropractor, acupuncture, deep tissue massages – but nothing […]
