Body Tonic has had a profound positive impact on my recovery and mental well being since I’ve been going class. and it’s only been three months.
To say that the Brian and Body Tonic has been a game changer for me is an extreme understatement. Last December I broke my ankle and fractured my tibia in 13 places (it was a Pilon Fracture). I was non-weight bearing, on bed rest, for 3 months. That was followed by another 3 months of gradually increasing the amount of weight I could put on my left foot. That process took me from a walker, a knee scooter, crutches and finally a walking boot.
On August 8, 2018 I went to my 8-month check-up with my surgeon and received a devastating diagnosis. That was that my range of motion would likely not improve EVER. At the same time my physical therapist discharged me from my weekly therapy because she felt there was no longer a value add to my recovery. It was a serendipitous 3 days later that someone in my apartment building who had seen me through my stages of recovery told me about the Body Tonic.
I called Brian the next day. He asked about my injury and my recovery to date. Brian’s response was respectfully, he wouldn’t accept the diagnosis of the surgeon and that he could help. He said it would just take time and dedication on my part. I went to my first class that same day. I’ve been going to class regularly and have seen and felt a radical improvement in my ankle range of motion, the strength of my ankle and foot and my walking stamina. Before I started going to class, I was limited to a few block walking radius. Today, I don’t have those limitations. My journey so far has been fantastic and I am so thankful for my improvement. But what’s even more exciting and motivating is that I know my journey and recovery is really only starting now. I couldn’t be more appreciative of the amazing space and experience that the Body Tonic has given me.
