Why We Love TMR
Amazing. I have been working with TMR for over a year and a half. I have had 100% success with myself (or so I thought) and huge success with many different people. Today, I found out there was a whole lot more to learn. Tom has come a long way with teaching techniques especially the paperwork. After just one day I feel much better prepared to help my stubborn "patients" I have struggled with. I now have a much better systematic approach to pinpoint the "issue" and hold teh patient to the process. Thanks Tom amazing! My life will never be the same (understatement)! Doug Duncan, IT Guy. The patients Doug talks about are friends and co-workers he as been graceful enough to show the FAB 5 to.
I think this is the answer for most of my questions in my treatments. Thank you for sharing this to the therapy world.
I learned first hand the extent of muscle/motion imbalances throughout my body that I knew were present & have ignored. Ignored because I thought my function was acceptable & rather good. Testing out the imbalances brought attention to these deficits and with emphasis on exercise on the strong sie has changed the extent of the deficits. Nice approach to addressing pain & motion deficits. Dan Norkiewicz, PT
I came in with bad rib pain. The staff here helped me work out what was wrong and how to quickly fix the problem. I have been to all kinds of physical therapy due to years of playing rugby. This really works!
I originally hurt my hip 14 years ago, since then my symptoms of pain had become progressively worse. Massage was helpful, but the relief was temporary. Since following the TMR plan I have had a huge improvement that has allowed me to have consistent pain relief and the ability to return to moderate exercise. I have found the program easy to understand and it has helped me immeasurably.
I was rear ended causing back, neck and shoulder pain. After a 5 minute session I was in the best shape. I could hardly feel any of the pain I felt walking in. I can truly say I have achieved "Total Motion."
At first I was skeptical of the techniques, but my results proved it to me. I can self treat when things get tight and I am almost 100% better. I no longer have to sleep on a heating pad and I can actually walk in the morning.
It was not at all what I expected. I guess that I expected not to get any relief and I did. It's pretty amazing.
Came in for one visit with severe back pain and within 30 minutes of treatment had great relief. I went home and completed the post treatment directions to further my recovery and was very pleased with the results. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with back problems.
My foot was injured playing tennis. After learning the TMR way, my flexibility has increased, my tennis game has improved as a result, and my foot pain is relieved. I've learned a great deal about how my body works and reacts to the releases and I expect to have my body react differently now when I play and it does! All sports people - recreational or professional should learn this process.
I was hoping to (1) improve knee pain and mobility so I wouldn't need the recommended surgery for torn meniscus, which I have already had 10 years ago, and (2) improve range of motion & eliminate pain in my shoulder due to bone spur and tendonitis. The shoulder pain is now almost completely gone, and my knee pain is greatly improved. I will continue with the regimen and do not plan to have the knee surgery anytime soon!
After this past session, I feel complete rotation in my lower back. I can turn equally to the right and to the left. This completely frees my body, which in turn frees my mind and relaxes my body and soul.
I was having pain (in a number of places in my back and neck) that were waking me up. After learning the initial exercises, I was shocked to learn that the pain was just camouflaged. The exercises were great to pinpoint "which areas" needed to be targeted - I've had real improvement with the pain and exercises - This works!
TMR eliminated my back pain and taught me techniques to prevent future injury. The program worked for me.
I had pain in my shoulder and neck area that I had been suffering with for 5 years +. I've had PT, chiro, and it helped some, but not enough. I have been very impressed with the results. I have felt better than I have in 5 years. Thanks.
I was in pain all the time, the pain was located in my left shoulder and neck. The program developed by Total Motion did a remarkable job of relieving my pain and gave me the tools to keep it from coming back. Thank you.
This therapy was an entirely new approach! It is something I will always remember and be able to use in the future.
After many years of back, shoulder, muscle pain, and difficulty with energy level, I have found that the program at TMR has given me the tools I need to decrease my pain substantially and increase my energy level to a level that I thought was impossible. I am very grateful. Thank you everyone.
For several years I have had back pain and tightness. I believed that I would always have to adapt to those problems by restricting certain activities or positions. I have discovered that I can reduce the back pain and tightness to the point that I no longer have to restrict my activities. Total Motion has made a wonderful difference in my life!
I injured left shoulder in a fall. I could not raise it above horizontal. Total Motion gave me the ability to figure out what muscles are causing problems and the techniques to get rid of the problems of pain and lack of range of motion. My left shoulder now works at least as well as the right one - a tremendous improvement. The exercises and techniques I learned here also help free up the movement of my torso, hips, and legs.
I have been through PT for practically my entire life. Never was it like this, or this effective! The thought of working my legs to fix my shoulder seemed strange, but logical. Using the principles of physics is ingenious. What a difference!
During a seminar the presenter showed us all several core TMR techniques and used me as a volunteer to show the others what was happening. When I was able to raise my left arm behind my head without pain in the shoulder or arm shaking I felt such relief I was brought to tears! During the past three weeks I have made much progress both in stabilizing weak areas and in reduction of pain. I am energized by both in-office and home sessions and now have the beginning tools to allow me to release tight and painful areas on my own. Additionally, I've been able to increase my walking distance to about one mile/day. Anyone who can open their mind to this technique should be able to benefit. There are so many symptoms which belong to fibromyalgia patients . . .I can't wait to see them get knocked down to a manageable levels!
I was totally amazed at the improvement of the motion in lifting my arm. It helped with some of the pain in my neck and I'm going to try all of the 5 tests to help my whole body. Thanks so much - this is incredible!
I constantly suffer from tightness in my back and hands, feet, knees . . . As a scientist by trade, I am skeptical of EVERYTHING. What I saw and experienced was amazing. I almost immediately regained my range of motion and my back pain improved dramatically! I am a believer!
I experienced unusual lower back pain last week and pain relief pills and heat pad gave me only minor relief. The program itself makes sense and works very well. It has given me some tools that I can use on my own to treat future discomfort.
Total Motion has helped me to rid myself of pain I have been carrying for years! What I like best is that I can do this for myself now instead of needing the assistance of a therapist continually.
I had migraine headaches. In only 4 sessions, my areas of restricted movement were moving more freely than I can ever recall. The migraine medication dosage has been cut by half. I know what to do if I ever feel a headache coming on or if I start to stiffen up again. Total Motion has definitely improved my quality of life!
Total Motion is truly amazing! After 5 sessions, I have gone to zero pain in every area. On my shopping trips to the mall, I can walk around with no pain. Also TMR has helped my heel pain quite a bit. With continued work I am hopeful that that pain will go away also.
I had chronic low back pain for many years and never was able to treat it other than rest and Motrin. After 2 sessions I was able to self-treat myself to relieve the pain and make myself pain free. I still get back pain at times but a few minutes of "self therapy" and I can get rid of it. I am looking forward to starting doing some of my favorite activities (golf, running, playing with my kids) knowing that I won't have the same back pain and if it does happen - I can treat myself.
