On August 5, 2013, I was in a car crash. For a second, my friend dozed off behind the wheel and crashed into the right-side highway border. Luckily he only suffered a couple of broken ribs, whereas I suffered a traumatic head injury that sent me into a coma for 16 days. I’ve had to endure severe back pain for nearly three years, as the impact aggravated a previous injury I had endured. I couldn’t sit in any chair that didn’t have proper back support, reach forward, or even drive for too long without experiencing excruciating discomfort. Through that experience, I’ve managed to perform everyday activities with some pain, but through very limited body movements. The same friend that was the driver on the day of the car accident was the one who recommended that I see Guillermo from Sensory Fitness.
Naturally, I had some concerns about starting rehabilitation again since I have already been to other clinics that only helped temporarily. But since the very first day I met him, aspiring to be a licensed Physical Therapist myself, I knew that we shared many of the same philosophies about self-healing. Guillermo was very kind and genuinely wanted me to get better quickly. His first assessment revealed to me that the source of my back pain stemmed from different muscles which I thought! Though his methods may have seemed unorthodox at first, I bought into it 100%. In ONLY 12 sessions, my back pain was virtually eliminated completely! Yes; in JUST 12 sessions, Guillermo helped me accomplish something other therapists failed to do for nearly THREE YEARS! I never imagined that I would be able to reach so far that I could touch my toes again! The fact that I could sit on any chair, without my handy lumbar roll, is amazing to me. As I type this, I’m sitting on an office chair I never thought that I would be able to sit on again. The pain used to be so bad I couldn’t sit on this chair even with my lumbar roll!
I hope Guillermo and I will be able to work together soon and help others heal the right way. I would definitely recommend him to anyone hoping to live PAIN-FREE! Thank you Guillermo for showing me that there are others in this world that care about studying the art of Physical Therapy and healing!
