What's Your CORA Story?
I was referred by my orthopedist for cervical spine issues with protruding disks and one herniated disk in c4-7. I had a lot of pain and radiating numbness and tingling in my right arm and was having difficulty even sleeping as no position was pain free.
My therapist was Brian Frost at the Palm Beach Gardens clinic, but as this was during COVID-19 it was through telehealth sessions. The individualized treatment plan specific to my symptoms was very thorough and progressed with my gradual improvement until it was a maintenance plan to prevent further problems. I had gradual improvement but what surprised me was that by the time I was practicing maintenance exercises I was feeling better than I had before my injury. Posture and strength building in my thoracic region also gave me freedom from neck and back pain that had been common but not problematic. I have a desk job with a lot of computer work and was used to feeling stiff and sore most mornings. That is all in the past now and I feel better than ever thanks to CORA.
I learned about how to properly exercise and take care of myself. Before I injured my knee, I was able to do 188 air squats. I had a goal of doing 300. I decided to go back to work on that goal after I finished PT for my knee, but when I assessed how many squats I can do now, I did 419! I learned that you don't have to push your body to extremes to get huge results. Just be consistent and strategic about how you train. I am very happy about the results I got from the training. My quads have never been stronger. In fact, everything from my ankles to my knees and hips are stronger. I am more flexible and stable. I feel about 150% improved of where I was before I hurt my knee. However, I think the bigger deal is that I will train in a more balanced and safer way for the rest of my life because of what I learned at CORA Palm Beach Gardens.
