“Bottom line, what changed was that I had a faster, easier recovery time so I was able to get back to work and my daily activities.” Lisa P. (51)
What prompted you to seek help?
I was scheduled for a hysterectomy and fearful that the recovery time would be long and affect my ability to work. One of my concerns was that the mass in my uterus was the size of a baseball and the surgeon was concerned that he wouldn’t be able to do the surgery laparoscopically. If not, recovery time with an incision in the abdomen would be much longer.
What unique insight did Kinetic Konnections have?
Pre-surgery there were some key things that stood out from my past history – I was a breech baby – so they explained that I probably had problems from literally Day One that could affect my surgery recovery time. That was a little hard to grasp and believe at the time. But their point was that breech birth plus everything that has happened to me growing up added up to a non-ideal body situation that might make surgical recovery slower.
Post-surgery Becki knew some of the most common challenges to look for in order to help me.
In my post-surgery sessions, she identified that I had fluid and air trapped in my body from the surgical procedures that were impeding my movement and full functionality. She addressed all of these areas post-surgery to help me get my mobility and functionality back.
First, I was able to have a less invasive surgery option. My midsection was in such great shape!
Second, Kinetic Konnections treated my whole body post-surgery, not just the surgical area. The Bridging specialists were able to pinpoint stress triggers from prior surgeries, as well as identify other trouble areas on the body due to surgical procedures, like the neck.
Bottom line, what changed was that I had a faster, easier recovery time so I was able to get back to work and my daily activities.
In fact, after I saw Becki post-surgery I immediately felt much better. I didn’t realize how poorly I felt until I visited her. I sent her a thank you note for the session, because I felt so great afterwards!
Then five days later, I felt so much better that I inadvertently lifted something that was beyond my 10lb. limit. I felt an odd twinge in my abdomen so I went back and saw Joanna and she was able to get me back on track.
On a recent visit, I commented to Becki that the movement in hips was very limited. She worked with me and my range of motion was much better at the end of the session. Ever since that visit I’ve been able to walk much faster, as my stride is not as limited and I feel more stable when I walk.
Every time I go to Kinetic Konnections I think about difficulties I’ve experienced with my movement since the previous session. Becki is able to help me every time, no matter what odd pain I bring up! Sometimes I feel better right away and sometimes I notice it later. I always stand straighter and can breathe better after each visit.
It’s almost an hour drive for me to get to the Northbrook office but it is well worth it, as I always walk out of Kinetic Konnections feeling like a new woman!
