Value! Care! Quality! Excellence!
In her words...
"Two years ago I started having problems with my left arm and shoulder. I tried quite a few different types of treatments and nothing seemed to help. In fact, it progressively grew worse and I was in constant deep pain, with very restricted movement. I felt depressed and tired, and thought, and was told, by a medical practitioner that perhaps this was how old age was going to be for me.
It was wonderful to become pain free and hopeful again. I couldn’t believe I was able to to have a beautiful morning kayaking on the lake, come back and work in the garden, play with my grandsons, bath and put them to bed, without a twinge of pain." Thank you Greg for giving me my life back. "
Sincerely, Kathryn Vezerian

What makes Greg unique?
Teaching you to fish.
“When I herniated two discs in my low back, I wanted to learn what was really going on, so I could figure out how to fix it, but after 8 years of pain, I was left disappointed.” We grow up with a cultural model and mindset that someone else is the expert of us. They have all this knowledge and if I have problem they will be able to fix me. “For years that’s what I thought, until I realized, I needed to and wanted to take more control. Control of my pain, of my how my body works and of how I can improve as I age.” Unfortunately most of the systems we grow up with are oriented around treatment and dependency. Treating someone who is injured is critical but leaving that person in a mindset and position where they need to keep coming back leaves them in a position where they are powerless and dependent on someone else. Greg turns this picture around. He helps you get back in the driver seat of your recovery and your resilience.
Root Cause vs. Symptoms:
Symptoms are also important however the symptoms are only one part of the story. The symptoms are useful to help uncover and discover where the root cause or source of the ailment is.
