3. I can get up from lower seats ; with palm support i am able to rise from floor level
The Chiropractor Ms Tracy explained what the problem was ; Understanding the problem helped me to relate to Dos and Don'ts . She focused on my back issue in the beginning ; relieving the pain helped me to start my walk gradually . The exercises which were simple in the beginning motivated me to do it regularly ; gradually she made them challenging . She also explained which muscle group or which part of the body i should feel the stretch while doing a particular exercise . I feel this is very important to have effectiveness . I had about 15 sittings ( there could be a slight variation in this number ) during my stay in Seattle . Once my back pain receded she worked on my knee . She is very committed , friendly and has lot of empathy . The exercises are really helping me . She customized the exercises for both back and knee issue . The key is to doing the exercises regularly ; By marking on the exercise program every day i am able to self monitor my regularity . It is a very useful tool Orca Wellness has provided . The front office executives are also very warm and helpful . Overall I had a good experience and quality of my life has improved with the exercise sessions ." Ann V.
