For the past 25 years, I have suffered with neurological symptoms in my hands and arms due to what western medicine diagnosed as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. In the past, I have managed my symptoms and flare-ups with a reduced work schedule and physical therapy or massage therapy sessions. After receiving myofascial release treatments from Page, I have been nearly symptom-free, even with an increased in my workload!
Many years ago, I began losing the normal use of my muscles. I found I was unable to voluntarily contract them when necessary and unable to release involuntary contractions. Both my regular and fine motor skills were affected. My problems began with tingling and muscle spasms in my right hand, arm, leg and progressed to a point, over a period of years, where I lost the use of my lower body.
I was confined to a wheelchair in 2001, by 2008 had become a quadriplegic. Over the next two years, I was under the care of many doctors with no real solutions and I was given the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. I also suffered a number of health issues and was medicated heavily. I was in constant pain and was treated by a physical therapist, chiropractor, neurologist, internist, as well as a spine specialist. I also tried a massage therapist. Nothing seem to alleviate my suffering.
Years later, I was recommended to Page Rumer for help and after years of tremendous pain, I was open to receiving the new form of treatment she described as Myofascial Release. To my surprise after just a few sessions with her, I no longer have any hip pain and my spasms have dissipated! My medications have also been reduced and I hope to someday be rid of them completely.
In addition, to being virtually pain-free I now have a straighter and more elongated spine that allows me to lay down and sit more comfortably. My mobility is greater than I would have ever thought possible. Thanks to Page, Im in a better position to enjoy more and live more comfortably.
