“I have to admit that I was more than skeptical when Dr. Shakya told me he could help me with my back pain. When we met, I was in tremendous pain from a training injury. And I had just undergone a fourth shot (in three months) in my spine to help relieve at least some of the pain. A surgeon at the GW medical center diagnosed me with spinal stenosis and multiple bulging discs. Due to the pain, I was unable to workout and thought for sure that I’d never to train like I had been all of my life. And I figured surgery was inevitable. Now, several months later, I am pain free, thanks to Dr. Shakya. I am more than impressed with the depth of Dr. Shakya’s knowledge - he seems to know exactly what to do to treat my symptoms. And he’s doesn’t rely on just one technique. Rather, he uses a variety of techniques to treat me, including manual manipulation, prescribed therapeutic exercises, dry needling, and personalized training to teach me how to move correctly as well as movements to avoid. Under Dr. Shakya’s care and direction, I have returned to my P90X, P90X2, and P90X3 training routines. Although there are some training movements I must avoid, like anything explosive (e.g., plyometrics) and pressing over my head, and many I must modify in accordance with Dr. Shakya’s instruction, I am still able to do most of them. Without Dr. Shakya’s help, I do not think I would be able to do any of them. Dr. Shakya has helped me return to the active life I thought I had lost forever. Thank you!” - Rich
