Alexa and Chris
Click image to hear Alexa and Chris talk about their experience with laser therapy.

Chris Knierim injured his knee a year ago in January 2017, sustaining a tear to his patellar tendon. He underwent a variety of treatments over the next 10 months, including physical therapy and 3 separate PRP injections, reporting only marginal help with these treatments for this particular injury.

He then decided to try Low Level Laser Therapy at our office for the 4 weeks prior to the U.S. Nationals Competition (the competition that helps determine the Olympic Team).

Laser therapy worked! His knee pain largely resolved and they won the U.S. Championships.  Alexa and Chris are now headed to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang!

We wish them the best of luck! Go Team USA!

More Core Stabilization Exercises

Here are 4 more Core Stabilization Exercises that are a little more advanced than the previous 6 exercise videos we posted earlier this fall. Please be sure that you are able to perform the Level One Core Exercises that we posted previously without difficulty before you attempt these new exercises. And remember that all exercises should be pain-free. Never push through pain or you might be creating injury! We have recommended starting with 8 repetitions of each exercise during the first several weeks. You may then perform 2 sets of 8 or rotate through the series twice resulting in 2 sets of 8.
