Success Story – Betty Novy

Success with neck pain, shoulder pain, low back pain, and right hip & knee pain.

I first came to Optimal Performance Health Care Center in April 2018.  I had been suffering from daily neck pain for 5 years. I had also suffered from shoulder pain for 5 months, right hip, and right knee pain for 4 months, and low back pain for 1 year. The pain was so intense that it was affecting my ability to participate in yoga classes, and I had to stop my regular walking routines. My health problems were having a negative effect on my life and I knew if I did nothing the pain would only get worse. 

Prior to Optimal Performance, I had tried to exercise and stretch out the pain. These treatments did not fix my problems, I did not get any results only temporary relief. However, I was fortunate enough to become aware of Optimal Performance at a health fair I attended and no longer needed to seek out alternative treatments.

Since becoming accepted as a patient at Optimal Performance my neck & shoulder pain, low back pain, hip & knee pain have all improved. I thought at first that my symptoms were just apart of aging but, the treatments coupled with a new exercise routine have greatly improved my symptoms, posture, flexibility, & increased my energy throughout the day. I am feeling so much better & now I know that my symptoms were not normal.

Now with my improved health, I know my future will be better. It’s a lot easier to enjoy activities when you are not in pain. I will be able to resume past activities that I had backed out of due to pain and I am extremely thankful for Dr. Van Westen & his staff for helping me on my journey to achieve better wellness.

I would highly recommend the Optimal Performance Health Care Center to anyone who suffers from unnecessary illness & pain. Dr. Van Westen & staff are very professional & thorough. They work hard to make sure that you are happy with your care & are seeing long term results. – Betty Novy
