Great story out of our Nashville clinic

This is a cool little testimonial sent from Carrie Elder, wife of Nashville clinic director John Elder and fellow clinic owner. They are a great team and do a wonderful job serving the folks in that area.

Now, before I post below what she sent out I want to explain why I post this kind of stuff. It’s not to show how cool Egoscue is (although Egoscue is WAY cool). It’s not to show how great we are or the Nashville clinic is or any other clinic whose testimonial I’m posting here. We are well confident in our abilities and what this Method can do for people. But what we consistently see is so many people just need some hope, at a fundamental level they believe they can get better, that they can take proactive steps to improve how their bodies work, to improve the quality of their lives. But they are just relentlessly beaten down by a society and a system that tells people that aging means a necessary loss of function, pain is normal, just put up with it and realize you’re not 25 any more.


Do NOT stand for this. I don’t care if you choose to use Egoscue as the tool to address your issues or if you use yoga or Pilates or Feldenkrais or the Alexander Technique or whatever. The most important thing to do is raise your standards, realize life can be better than this. Whether you are 5 or 15 or 35 or 55 or 75 or 95, you are NOT designed to hurt, you are NOT designed to fall apart simply because another page on the calendar turned. We routinely see clients become more functional as they age. One of our clients in Austin will be 90 in a few months and the difference in her now compared to 3 months ago is startling. She is getting younger functionally and it’s a privilege to see it.

Raise your standards, don’t accept pain and limitation as a necessary part of your life. Decide to make it better. I applaud the woman Carrie is writing about below. I’m really proud of her because she could’ve given in and just decided to sit on the couch and watch TV all day but she chose to make things better and she WORKED. And now she is reaping the benefit.

Whew, so after all that, here’s the testimonial:

Hey all,

I just wanted to give you a little encouragement today–

Yesterday I had the privilege of seeing a woman walk without crutches for the 1st time in SIX YEARS! She was on her 5th visit and it was a very emotional thing to watch her walk out and say, “No, I don’t want my crutch, I can do it.” She was also amazed that John could recreate pain in her heel by putting her into a certain position after years of specialists trying to do the same with no luck.
