Chronic Pain Solutions


I saw Marlene a few months ago for what she believed to be PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME.  Although she had some fairly intense FASCIAL ADHESIONS in her hip / buttock region, that was just for starters.  She had the same stuff in her quad, HAMSTRING, calf, and HIP FLEXORS as well.  She also had some severe lower back issues related to her THORACOLUMBAR FASCIA.   After treatment, she went home with a protocol that mostly involved STRETCHING, the EXERCISE BALL & PLANKS, and INVERSION.  And even though her diet was good by any measure, we discussed a few things that she could do to quell INFLAMMATION just a bit better.

Marlene is one of those super fit Colorado women who looks like she’s about 25 years younger than she really is.  But the pain was destroying her ability to live life on her terms.  Something about our site deeply resonated with her, and she decided to make the trip to the Ozarks.  This email was received unsolicited just a couple of days ago. 

Hi Dr. Russ,

Thank you again for saving my life!  I know that sounds dramatic, but it’s how I feel. I can do all these things now [athletic endeavors, skiing, sitting, working out, etc] without pain now and I am forever grateful.  I can even sleep now without drugs; It’s so weird to me that that happened.  What serendipity!  It’s shocking actually.

I have been using the inversion table a little every day and it seems to be helping the little pain I have left. I have learned to NOT overdo exercise which would set me back for a few days. I am also able to stretch now without suffering badly. I am excited to be on a better path for my health.  I so enjoyed my stay in your beautiful little town and hope to return some day.  Hope you and your family are doing well.

Sincerely, Marlene Luczkow, Eagle, Colorado

I enjoyed our time as well Marlene.  If there is ever anything I can do for you, make sure to let me know. As much as I would enjoy seeing you again, my goal is always to provide my patients with an EXIT STRATEGY — a way to get off the MEDICAL MERRY-GO-ROUND and get their lives back.  I love seeing patients become self reliant, taking charge of their health as well as their healthcare.
