The past few years have been very difficult for me and my family. I had lumbar fusion in December of 2011 and the recovery road has taken a toll in every area of our lives. I have been to Physical Therapy, Decompression Therapy, steroid shots, Epidural shots and many other treatments, desperately looking for some relief. To be honest with you when I first came to Coach Joey I had lost hope of ever being able to exercise or have a life without pain. I am a very active person. I was heavily involved in ministry and I wanted with all that was in me to have my life back so I could do God’s work. Not being able to function as before affected not only me but my family and many others I worked with immensely. I believed God would touch my back and heal me but many times I was so weary from my pain and my faith would weaken. I was recommended to go to Joey’s program by my chiropractor who was a blessing to me through it all.
I remember sitting on my first consultation in tears because I really did not want to try “something else”. I thought I had done everything I could in the natural to help myself and nothing worked. I started working with Joey and after a few weeks I was shocked with some of the things I was able to do. At times I thought Joey had forgotten I have screws and rods in my spine. He pushed so hard until I lost my fear of not being able to do more. Many times I got in the car and just cried thanking God for the progress. In these past few months I have experienced many weeks with no pain! I am so thankful for Coach Joey and all he has done; not just for me but for my family. My husband now is part of Joey’s CrossTrain program as well. We are on our way to being a healthier and pain free family. ~ Yolanda Lilly
