"I called Orca because I had a lower back injury while running. This injury was causing a lot of pain for a couple of days and it was really hard for me to concentrate at work and impossible for me to exercise
Doctor Tello explained to me not only the process for healing my injury but also explained the root cause for it and explained that the real problem was that I was not using my body as it was meant to be used. What I considered a straight posture was actually damaging my posture and weakening my back. I was misusing my legs and core and forcing my lower back to work in ways it is not supposed to.
I did not understand how the movements I was doing with my whole body were uncontrolled and that generated an injury in my lower back.
After Dr. Tello treated me I am now able to lift weights responsibly and to enjoy my cardio exercises more. I have become more aware of the movements that my body has to do in order to maximize the use of energy and minimize the impact to my back and my joints.
Orca has really helped me understand my body mechanics and has helped me expand my awareness when exercising. Not only do I feel like I can exercise safely in the future, but also I believe that now I am getting the best out of my workouts." - Michel T.
