medical fitness clientAt age 87 I came to Kinetic Edge to participate in the medical fitness program for three reasons: severe lack of balance, neck pain and lower back pain were making my life pretty unbearable.

With Rachel’s continuous help I have recovered some of my balance. While sudden and unexpected movements still put me seriously at risk of falling, these incidents are increasingly rare and when they occur I usually manage to prevent a fall now.

The exercises performed at Kinetic Edge and at home have also reduced the pain levels in my neck and lower back and there is reason to believe that they will continue to do so.

The physical therapists, Rachel Johnson and Tim Vander Wilt have been involved in the design and execution of my exercises. They supervised and evaluated these exercises throughout the entire session, making corrections whenever necessary and making sure I understood their directives. Exercising is never boring because of the great variety of things we do. During and at the end of each session Rachel also keeps me informed about her assessment of my progress.

I most appreciate that throughout the session Rachel remains entirely focused on me, encourages me when I become discouraged, challenges me when I want to rest on my laurels, and always maintains a positive atmosphere. We laugh together and despite having to work very hard and at times deal with discomfort and pain I always look forward to our sessions together.” – Deiter D.
