I've known Joanna since she was a little girl. However, I never realized until just how bad her chronic "hip" problem has been for the past 12-14 years. Although her problem responded some to my PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME Treatment a couple of years ago, it would not last as long as I see it last on most patients. On top of that, she would not hold adjustments for very long. Stupid me; I just chalked it up to the fact that she is a hardcore hiker --- a woman who goes on multi-week hiking trips on the Appalachian and Colorado Trails (something she has done since her days growing up at DISCOVERY MINISTRIES). Well, about a year ago, I started experimenting and figured out that her problem was not a traditional Piriformis Syndrome that I see so much of, but a Piriformis TENDINOSIS. That was the key. Now she is doing fabulous, holding adjustment, and running without pain ---- for the first time since high school.
