“Doctors make the worst patients.” This cliché characterizes my behavior is not coming to terms with low back pain. I persisted in over-exercising, sought out curbside consults from my peers, ordered unnecessary tests and continued to suffer. All this changed when I met Rachel Krentzman. I care for countless patients with spinal stenosis and am familiar with all the traditional treatments that our healthcare system offers. Rachel is able to blend her physical therapy education and yoga training to offer a unique approach. She prescribed asanas (poses) that combined strengthening and flexibility which never aggravated my pain. She understood my emotional reaction to having chronic spine degeneration and tailored the program which reduced my stress. Spine degeneration is a lifelong condition that requires active participation by the patient. I am motivated to practice at home daily because Rachel’s approach is gratifying, challenging and never boring. I may still not be the best patient, however I no longer have pain but rather a new approach to maintaining a healthy spine and mind.”
