Here's what some of our clients are saying about our Nashville, TN clinic.

I was in very bad shape with immediate plans on seeing a neurosurgeon for more neurosurgery because I could not sit up for more than an hour without serious neck and back pain. I had an auto accident thirty years ago that caused a small bulge in my C5-C6 cervical disc (neck injury). A titanium implant replacing the C5-C6 disc did not fix the problem. I had icepick-type stabbing eye pain radiating from my neck which eventually caused my peripheral vision to decline in that eye. The pain radiated down my arms into my hands and down my upper back. Suicide was on my mind.

As an uninsurable non-entity, all my money had gone to the medical industry over the last twenty years, but the pain worsened every year. The pharmaceuticals prescribed caused a myriad of other health issues including brain fog and IBS. I have three scars from where I tried different surgeries, one is a horizontal scar on the front of my neck. Nothing worked until…Egoscue.

After 30 hours over a ten day period, gravity started pulling my shoulders back to where they were supposed to be. I was able to get out of bed. The eye pain lessened significantly. I could sit up for awhile. My friend was told he needed hip replacement surgery if he did not correct his posture. We both worked with Amanda. Under her professional guidance my posture improved week by week. Both my friend and I benefited greatly. After four sessions, he avoided surgery and was able to pursue a new career path that requires standing. I got my life back. The pain level has decreased by 50-75%.

These exercises are anti-aging. I recommend them for everyone, even those not in pain (yet). I highly recommend Amanda as a therapist because of her expertise and because she listens.

Moderate exercise for fun has always been an important part of my life. It has always been my way to cope with stress, balance my life, and stay in good physical and mental health.

Usually I did get better after a few days, with the help of some ice and pills. I knew the origin of my back pain was a winter ski fall that happened 30 years ago. Since then my vertebral column is pretty shifted to the left and I had been wearing a sole in my left shoe to reestablish my balance.

Instead of being limited to my back I felt it in my neck/shoulder, right knee, back and upper leg. No more jogging, skiing, tennis. Driving more than an hour was a very painful experience.

My sister visited the first Egoscue clinic in California more than 20 years ago suffering a very acute hernia that the doctors said has to be operated. After a few months she was good and stayed mobile since. She even lived on a sailboat for almost 3 years, something that you really need a strong back to do, believe me.

Amanda Packer kind of saved my life since I feel 10 years younger then a year ago with twice the energy level. It took me 2 months to be able to jog again 3-5 kilometers. Four to play tennis, first once a week to 3 times after a while. I started to water ski again this summer and I can drive the 4 and a half hour to Montreal without fear.

The sole that I use to wear for 30 years is now in the garbage. I save all the money that I used to spend on physiotherapist and chiropractor and need no painkillers.

Thank you Amanda for helping me retake my life again.

My advice: If you are in chronic pain, don't let it take over your life.

After battling back pain for years, the Egoscue approach has truly changed my life. I've been an Egoscue disciple for 15+ years. My current therapist, John Elder, knows the method as well as anyone I've worked with over the years. John is energetic and highly motivational. These are important characteristics since the Egoscue approach relies heavily on self-discipline. I live pain free now and don't rely on any pain medicine.

I am an avid outdoorsman, particularly when it comes to hunting and fishing. At almost 60 years old, however, my congenital scoliosis finally began to catch up with me in recent years; I found that spending hours standing in a fishing boat or hunting blind resulted in low back pain/soreness and tension in my neck, shoulders and hips. Finally, at the advice of a couple of family members who had found relief in the Egoscue method, I contacted John Elder and began my menu in March 2010. I regularly completed my menu for more than 2 months, when it came time for my annual fishing trip with 2 friends. Our destination was the Pacific Ocean off Costa Rica, our targets were marlin and sailfish. As we planned on spending the nite on our fishing boat 60 miles offshore, I was anxious about how my body would react to the constantly unstable platform of a fiberglass boat for almost 72 hours, not to mention the stress of fighting big fish on light tackle. Well, we had the trip of a lifetime, hooking almost 30 billfish in 3 days fishing; AND, I hooked and brought to the boat a 250 lb. blue marlin on a fly rod, after almost two hours. The most amazing part of the trip, however, was how my body felt during the trip and after getting off the boat. For the first time in 15 years, I had no soreness or any sort of pain during and after the trip. I frankly was shocked as to the lack of ill effects particularly after the long fight on fly tackle with the marlin. Clearly, the being diligent with John Elder's recommended menu thru the Egoscue method paid big dividends and taught me a valuable lesson about the importance of regular, intelligent e-cises in taking care of the old body!
