After over 30 years in the sport and 10k+ jumps, my body is definitely not what it used to be, especially not my back. Broke it twice, but only once jumping, doing a ridiculously heavy test jump. Long story. One day right before I was about to start a new job with another group, had to move a 75lbs box full of skydiving stuff in my garage and, BOOM, there went my bag! I was going to do a bunch of AFF starting in two days and I had not time for this. Called upon by a mutual friend, Nancy came to my rescue. She showed me a number of great stretched and exercises to do that would put my back "back in it's place".
Most of the stuff Nancy showed me I had never seen before despite a career of trying to rehab my back, neck and shoulders. Most injuries caused by jumping and snowboarding. What she showed me made wonders. I could not believe how some simple stretches and exercises made correctly would make such a huge difference to my health. As soon as my back starts acting up I revert back to what Nancy taught me and I back in shape in no time. Nancy, you have made a world of difference for my ability to continue working with what I love to do, Skydiving. THANK YOU!! And, yes, she is super nice too.
Following an injury sustained from continued AFF beat up in the tunnel and in the air, I was in a position where I was struggling to get out of bed in the morning. Following 1 consultation with Nancy, I was able to continue jumping the following day and within 3 days I was pain free despite continued jumping activity. Highly recommended and thank you very much for keeping me jumping, as well as providing long term solutions to prevent further injury.
Nancy, thanks for the PT session on my wrist at Nationals. I was resigned to not jumping, but you made the pain disappear. Better yet, thanks for the exercises you showed me that I can do myself. It's getting better! Blues Skies Physical Therapy really works!
