I suffered from lower back pain for years, but two years go, I developed severe, acute pain on my right side, which effected my entire lifestyle. I reached a point where I could not get out of bed without holding on to the night stand to help me up. I was limping, and unable to bend to do daily chores. The pain was exhausting and debilitating, draining my energy and impacting my mood. For two years, I saw physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, yoga therapists, and I even tried mindful meditation, seeking relief. I found a specific, non-invasive chiropractic method called Activator which offered temporary relief, but nobody could explain why the condition was not getting better. A day or two after getting relief, the pain was back again. Finally I discussed this with my Doctor at my physical, and she recommended Darly at Revive Rehab, whom she heard about from another patient, and saw Darly herself for treatment. I’m so glad I booked that appointment! After a few visits, Darly not only started relieving my pain through specialized Myofascial work, but diagnosed the source as coming from my psoas muscle (hip flexor) in front. The reason adjustments never held was because the myofascial tissue in the psoas and surrounding area was pulling my hip front again, knocking out my alignment. Each visit, she followed the tight fascial tissue, releasing different connecting areas. I began to realize that each of the specialists I’d seen for years had identified and worked on a specific area, but Darly used her myofascial training to identify that the source of my back pain was actually in my front. She uses the John Barnes’ Myofascial Release Techniques to release all of the myofascial restrictions in my body. It was like magic. Additionally, she taught me specific core exercises to help my specific weak spots, and exercises to avoid.I am no longer “acute”, and if I do my exercise regularly, I am close to pain free on a regular basis! Before I met Darly, I had almost given up thinking I would feel “normal” again. Darly is a wonderful, caring, gifted person, who understands and works with the entire body, spends the time, listens, cares, and obviously loves her work.
