Athlete Success Spotlight


videotaping my golf swing, he was able to see some structural issues that were causing my back to undergo so much stress. He also showed me a photo of what my back would look like with a rod and pins, and described some of the potential new complications I could experience. He suggested a 6-month program of core strengthening to get my body in alignment and better support my back. I signed up that day and haven’t looked back. Because of Greg and his amazing staff of trainers and therapists, I have my life back. I regularly play golf, paddle tennis, take long bike rides, dance, workout, walk my dog, and in 2017 I celebrated my 60th birthday by easily completing the 7.5 mile Bay to Breakers race in SF!"

"I have always had back issues as an adult, but managed to ‘just deal with it.’ As I got older, the pain – similar to a pinched nerve or bulging disk – caused me to quit many of my favorite activities. Finally, in 2015 when I couldn’t even walk my dog a block without turning around in pain I saw a surgeon who diagnosed me with Spondylolisthesis (the displacement of one vertebra compared to another). In my case, the S5 and L1 were out of sync. I worked my way up the ladder of suggested remedies – massage, acupuncture, PT, epidural injections in my back, and even some ‘not approved’ options but nothing helped. Finally, in 2016 I was resigned to needing the last possible solution – surgery. That’s when I met Greg at a seminar called ‘Strengthen Your Back for Golf.’ By

5 Tips For Shoveling Snow

Snow shoveling can lead to a number of health risks for many people, from back injuries to heart attacks. The following tips can help keep you safer when you set out to shovel: Warm up. Warm your muscles before heading out to shovel by doing some light movements, such as bending side to side or walking in place. Push rather than lift. Pushing the snow with the shovel instead of lifting can help reduce the strain on your body. Lighten your load. Consider using a lighter-weight plastic shovel instead of a metal one to help decrease the weight being lifted. Consider multiple trips. Consider shoveling periodically throughout the storm to avoid having to move large amounts of snow at once. Keep up with snowfall. Try to shovel snow shortly after it falls, when it is lighter and fluffier. The longer snow stays on the ground, the wetter it can become. Wet snow is heavier and harder to move.
