I was suffering from a pinched nerve, which began in my neck and slowly traveled to my shoulder, shoulder blade, arm and fingers. During this time, I was in extreme discomfort while doing simple tasks such as driving a car or carrying anything with my left arm. I initially sought medical help with a spine specialist which helped calm down some of the pain with a series of injections. While this helped somewhat, I found I still was in occasional pain and my range of motion and strength had deteriorated. I began working with Michele Pond to build my strength, range of motion and most importantly, look to proactively work to keep this from happening again. Through a series of treatments using massage, bands, stretches and various strengthening exercises, I began to find relief and my pain began to subside. Michele does a great job of thoroughly explaining the reason/result for each excercise and follows up each appointment with detailed instructions so I can continue treatment on my own at home. Happy to report I am MUCH better than I was months ago and will not hesitate to reach out to Michele if I ever need additional physical therapy!
