“I wanted to sit down and write this letter so I could share with you the dramatic improvements that have taken place with my body since our neuromuscular therapy began. I need to bore you with a few details about my health history and background first.
I played football for 16 years which took a negative toll on m body. Within a three year period, I had reconstructive knee surgery, tore my hip flexor, severely strained my lower back, not to mention numerous concussions, broken hands, ribs, etc. While I had a love affair with the game of football, I began to realize that it took away my health, mobility, and at times my normal frame of mind. Once my time on the gridiron ran out, all of the past injuries came back to haunt me. I developed severe pain in my hips and upper back. I have visited dozens of chiropractors and specialists with no luck of ridding myself of the pain. The constant pain began to also impact on my frame of mind. Just a few years ago, I felt invincible, always ready to rise to any physical challenge. Suddenly I could not even get up from the floor or climb the stairs without considerable help. At 27 years old, I felt 77 and in my mind was a constant feeling of defeat. My three-year-old daughter would ask me to sit on the floor and read her books. I would have to explain to her that Daddy just couldn’t do that. I was missing out on precious moments with my little girl. Simple tasks like finding my shoes were no longer possible and had to be done by my wife because I just couldn’t bend down to get on my knees to look under the bed.
After these last couple of years of pain and low self-esteem, I sought your help. In today’s world, society loosely uses the term “great.” I have always felt that this term “great” should be used for things like the Mona Lisa, Babe Ruth, the Sistine Chapel. Let me say this: Art Jaffe is GREAT. My pain is entirely gone. I can run, jump, and most importantly, sit on the floor and read to my daughter. My mental frame of mind has improved 100 fold. Nothing seems like a challenge anymore and I feel like I could play football again. Everyday when I wake up, I smile because I knew that my worse day being pain free will be better than my best day when I was in pain. Thank you, Art, for giving me a new lease on life.”
