How Functional Training Institute – FTI (oh and my doctor) helped me go olive harvesting in Italy!! I recall FTI's words very clearly, "Carol you should see your doctor, your shoulder pain is not an issue we can correct" the pain is different and thank you FTI you were so RIGHT!

 

My orthopedic Surgeon found via all the MRI's that the tendon in my right shoulder had a ~ 20% tear and of course the ol' bone spurs in the area were not helping matters. Fix it he says, or in 5 years you may not be able to use your arm. 27 May 2011 the surgery was done.

 

I started my rehabilitation at FTI and the "joy's" of the release work along with various exercise techniques to restore my shoulder movement and strength in 3 months, my doctor was amazed. "Carol you are progressing better than 80% of my clients with similar surgery". The fitness pays off!

Three years ago, 2012, I had nerve and muscle pain in my lower back. The curvature of my lower spine has gone out of alignment. Doctors said that it was bone generation and had no cure for it. They gave me a big bag of painkiller.
 

 Since I have muscle pain and my whole body was stiff, I contacted Nelson of FTI, and started training. My Trainer is Joseph, he is very patient with me and helpful. I have been with FTI for about two years and will continue with them for many years to come.

 

My training with FTI was tough in the beginning, because all my muscles were still and harden. Joseph was very patient with me and was a great help. I started with three times training a week, 6 months later it was twice a week. After 1 1/2 years of exercise I am pain free. Thank you Joseph.
