In 2016, I threw out my back for the 3rd time and my daily activity and mental health took a toll. After trying multiple different types of help including massages, Osteopathic Manipulative Treatments, Rolfing, and even just seeing my general doctor none of the medicine or treatments gave me long lasting results. I needed to find out how I could help lead my own recovery, especially while traveling the world and Dr. Lalk gave me the tools to do so. After continuing your exercises you taught me for a year, I was able to accomplish one of my biggest physical dreams to hike the Torres Del Paine W Trek in Patagonia. Even though it wasn’t easy, I was able to complete 45 miles in 4 days. I am very grateful that I don’t live with daily back pain anymore and I owe a great deal to what Dr. Lalk taught me.
He is extremely skilled and knowledgeable and knows that with physical pain comes mental stress and makes the road to recovery a positive one. I never felt like just another patient, I had a support system and knew he wanted to see me succeed and be happy just as much as I wanted to. In addition, he made sure that I did the exercises correctly and taught me if I consistently stuck to them, I could take the world by storm. I think back to my lowest times and how walking a lap around my house was a success and now I walk an average of 9,000 steps. If you are thinking of working with Spencer, the quality of care he offers made all of the difference in my recovery.
