"After suffering horrible pain for over two years Jim Tuckers' rolfing techniques game me back my life.
I was diagnosed with De Quirvaines Disease, which is very similar to carpel tunnel only it affects the thumbs and tendons connecting to the forearms. As carpel tunnel this is also a repetitive stress injury obtained by years of computer overuse, which I acquired after 1 years in the graphic arts profession, or according to doctors a bad workstation set up.
I had been through four different specialists with treatments ranging from cortisone shots, pain and nerve medications, extensive (painful) physical therapy to full arm and hand immobilization splints. None of this treatment worked, the pain always returned.
Desperately I decided to try Rolfing. After the first visit I had immediate relief, I could actually grip the steering wheel to drive home. A few days later the pain returned but Mr. Tucker told me to be patient. The more visits the longer I went without pain.
Rolfing enabled me to work full time while commuting 2 hours a day, before Rolfing I could barely drive at all. I am so glad I took the chance and tried Rolfing and would recommend it to anyone suffering in pain, what have you go to lose?"
