Feeling Much Better

by Lina Bel

Dear Stephen O'Dwyer,

I can not find words to tell you how grateful I am! You literally saved my life from every day and every night pain.

It all started 5 years ago. I decided to loose weight and began to workout regularly. Soon enough I noticed pain in my right hip and leg. I went to the doctor, he made an X-ray and told me I have "Probable tiny osteofit" in my hip and that is a sign of osteoarthritis. There is no cure, so I tried diet, homeopathy, chiropractic, stretches, different regime of exercises and some days I was without pain, but more often nothing helped.

This year I went again to the doctor with hope there is something new in treatment. This time I was lucky to be seen by better doctor. After looking at my X-rays he told me it is not arthritis, it is my back and Iliopsoas and Physical therapy should help. I was arguing with him and been very skeptical. But I found your site and tried your stretching exercises. I could not believe myself: it helped immediately! Next day I was feeling much better, first time in 4 years! I still have some pain, but I know for sure what to do.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
