Since I am very athletic, enjoying activities ranging from running, hiking to cross-country skiing, I was very fearful of surgery, which was recommended by a local doctor. You introduced me to stretching and strengthening methods and reassured me that I could alleviate my bunion dysfunction through specific exercise progression, concentrating on my body alignment. Through the course of the year, I followed the exercise program and noticed an increase in muscle balance, flexibility, and endurance. I am totally committed to continuing to work on the program you have set up for me which is correcting my body alignment, strength and flexibility. This has helped me more than I would have ever imagined and bunion surgery is something I do not even think about anymore.
