A post-vacation thank you note

Just got this wonderful little note from a client last week. She had been struggling with back and hip pain and sciatica-like issues before coming to Upright Health. After several months of postural exercises, she was confident that she’d be able to enjoy a vacation to England and France with her daughter.  Here’s her quick report on how she did…

Hi Matt,

Just got back from England last night. Two trans-atlantic flights, miles and miles and miles of walking, sleeping in an unfamiliar bed, away from my tower (a therapy device she now owns): I did absolutely fantastic!!

I only had 2 minor episodes of achey back. The first one was our second day in Paris. Our tour to Versailles was canceled due to a strike, so we found ourselves alone in Paris for 12 hours on foot. My back was a little achey, so we stopped along the Seine and I did air bench (an exercise she learned while coming to Upright Health) against a building. The street was deserted due to it being Bastille Day. Feet slipped out from under me and I was on my butt! Tried an area where there was more traction, and my back was fine in under 2 minutes. Another day I had some minor discomfort but again, the air bench worked in just a couple of minutes. Thanks for teaching me how to take care of myself! I hope all is well with you!
