02/16/2005: Ode to My Magician
Dr. G and his partner Dr. T are the most fabulous Magicians.
(Dr. Emmanuel A. Giovannis and Dr. Steven Tirabaso; Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine and Sport's Related Injury Therapy at Body Solutions - no website yet - here in St. Charles)
I come from a family of back problems (Gramma Rose had severe Hypho-camphosis; Dowager's Hump; that left her half her size by the time she was 90.) I have this too...so it's a constant battle to keep my back flexible and prevent other strains on my shoulders and lower back.
But these magicians have the most awesome of latest techniques that really make a difference. One is their Anodyne Therapy: an infrared heat treatment originally designed to improve circulation in extremities for Diabetics...works wonders on back problems too.
Then there is their latest (they keep up and take classes in the newest stuff out there for their patients): The Graston Technique; stainless steel instruments (like various shaped ingots or bars with rounded edges) that properly used, help break down soft tissue adhesions in muscles, ligaments or tendons to help repair and provide greater flexiblity and motion.
In addtion to the usual heat packs, electro-stimulation, phsysio-manipulations and exercises...these new treatments are the BOMB..and so are the Magicians who perform them. Ahhh.... ;-)
(p.s. if you would like their Business address & phone number....just e-mail me and I'll get back to ya.)
As an Aside, Dr. G. and his long time girlfriend, Julie, have just gotten Engaged. So, Congratulations are in order...as they join the long line of predecessors in that road to a Lifetime of Happiness and Companionship. (Plus, there's the "wedding planning" madness for a TBA date some 6 months from now.)
All my Best to Dr. G. and Julie - Hip-hip-hooray!!!
