“Rachel is pain free for periods of time and she is able to do more activities. She is less fatigued. We have had phenomenal results.” Julie (mom of Rachel, 10)
What prompted you to seek help?
My daughter has had some medical challenges like food allergies, chronic constipation, but the tipping point was when she started to experience terrible back and neck pain. She started to complain that it was too hard for her to walk. The doctors said she hit all of her growth milestones, so they weren’t concerned, but she was always complaining of pain.
I took her to an orthopedic, did x-rays, but they came back totally clean. They eventually diagnosed her with hypermobility and recommended physical therapy. We did that for 1.5 years and although she improved some, she didn’t improve as much as we hoped. We didn’t know what to do next. The pain was a major issue. We found out about Kinetic Konnections because of another specialist we saw regarding constipation. The specialist thought they might help with both issues.
What unique insight did Kinetic Konnections have?
This is a more zen treatment. You relax while the Bridging® specialist does the work.
It’s mostly all passive instead of going home and doing a bunch of exercises yourself.
This is nice from a parent perspective – I don’t have to go home and help Rachel with all of these exercises. The specialist is able to do the technique and send you home to relax and continue with regular activities. As a busy parent, this is a real asset.
Rachel is pain free for periods of time and she is able to do more activities. She is less fatigued. We have had phenomenal results. This has been very beneficial for Rachel.
As she grows, some of the pain comes back. But then we go to Kinetic Konnections for a tune-up and she is pain free again.
She is now a swimmer and Bridging has helped her swimming technique. She even participated in a 5K with the family recently and was able to do it.
She says she feels so much better after each session! Almost like her joints are all wobbly but the Bridging helps makes them tighten up so the hypermobility is less.
