Egoscue helped a tennis professional stay on the court!

Shelly came to us a few years ago with several different issues. I’ll let her tell you her story!


My name is Shelly Works. I am a 42-year-old tennis player. I had been battling plantar fasciitis and knee pain for over a year and a half before I cam to Rick at the Egoscue clinic in Austin, TX. I teach tennis for a living and compete at the state and national level. The pain was severely impacting my quality of life and my active lifestyle.

I had been to see several doctors and received the standard shots and treatment. All helped for a brief period, however, the pain always returned, and it was accompanied by another pain somewhere else. I had resorted to taping my feet and knee daily just to get by.

I had previously read and used the exercises in the Pain Free book by Pete Egoscue for a hip problem, and it had taken care of the problem. I did my E-cises daily with great results. All went well until we moved and my routine was disrupted. I went months without being able to resume my routine. By the time I could, I had developed plantar fasciitis in both feet and was dealing with knee and shoulder pain. I knew I had a dysfunction somewhere that was causing these problems, but I realized that I needed some help and direction on where to start. All the shots, taping, and treatment were not addressing the root problem. I had spent over $3,000 on orthotics; none of which helped.

I decided to call Rick at the Egoscue clinic in Austin, TX and see if he could help me get back to a life without pain. I was still teaching, training, and competing the whole time I saw him. The transformation was AMAZING!!!! Within one month, I was able to stop taking 8 ibuprofen a day as well as stop taping my feet! My knee pain subsided, and I was able to walk barefooted again with no pain! I had not been able to jog at all. After my 4th visit, I was able to run 4 miles and live to walk and talk about it the next day! I do my E-cises daily now and feel the best I have felt in 8 years. My speed is back, as well as my strength and flexibility.

I so believe in the Egoscue method that I have paid for family members and friends to go and experience the benefits themselves. I would recommend the Egoscue method to anyone who is suffering from pain. It is possible to live a life pain free without shots, surgery, and orthotic devices, which only alleviate the symptoms and do not address the root problem causing all the pain. I am living proof that it works, and so is Rick. His story is absolutely AMAZING!

I am so grateful to Rick and the Egoscue method for getting me back on the court at the level I was use to. I am able to train and do footwork as I previously had before I developed the problems. In the future, if I happen to develop any more problems, I know where I am going—to Rick at the Egoscue clinic in Austin, TX. Thanks, Rick! You are the BEST!
