Working Out Post Rehab: Low Back Injury

Kathy doesn’t stay in one place long. Not only does she run all over the University of Michigan’s campus as part of her job, she gracefully glides across water on skis and can shoot a solid round of golf. Needless to say, an unexpected back injury had a huge impact on her life.

Recovery was slow, but sure and physical therapy helped. As Kathy approached the end of her PT, she knew she still needed more. That is when she reached out to Body Within. Kathy needed guidance around appropriate exercises. She needed insights on technique, so stretches and exercises were done safely and effectively. She needed to work on both stability and mobility, but through a thoughtful progression so she didn’t get hurt or waste her time.

We began working together in the summer of 2012. We still work together to this day! Kathy and I now meet monthly and work on whatever sport is in season. Golfing. Gardening. Skiing…water or snow! I am happy to say a strong and stable core paired with a stretching routine has kept Kathy injury and pain free.

Body Within has helped me set very obtainable fitness goals. I have been recovering from a lower back injury and after completing physical therapy, it was difficult and sometimes scary to workout. I was in constant pain and wasn't able to do some of my favorite activities. The program Body Within set up worked within my abilities, focusing on building up the muscles to support the injured area, AND it was also convenient for my busy work schedule. Within two short months I was back on the water skiing which I hadn't been able to do in years.  I have since played 18 holes of golf which felt great! In essence, we are working smarter and get more accomplished in a shorter period!  --Kathy, South Lyon
