I've had back and hip problems for most of my adult life while cautiously maintaining an active lifestyle of travel, tennis, skiing and other outdoor activities. I'd tried all kinds of exercises and treatments and had been in and out of PT and doctor's offices for years until I finally hit a wall, where I was not making any fundamental improvement and still having pain in basic activities like walking, sitting and standing for extended periods. I was skeptical that there was anything out there that would truly make a difference and was fortunate to be introduced to IPA, where they address the whole system - not just the limitation or injury - and Ryan has been expert in treating me on both levels. Since my issues are long-standing, he had to sort through a lot quickly in order to treat me immediately as well as develop the best plan going forward. He has persistently focused on the big picture while also relieving specific areas of pain or discomfort, so that I leave each visit not just feeling better but also making real progress. In the past year, the pain has decreased while the "quality" of movement has improved in everything from walking to hiking and biking. On a separate but equally important note - getting treatment for "chronic" issues can be a pretty negative experience. Some people don't want to treat these cases or aren't sure how to help, but Ryan did not hesitate to take on the challenge. He has been positive and encouraging from day one, helping to make a tedious process easier and ultimately more rewarding.
