Thank you Dr. Missimer! My 13 year old daughter was struggling with a painful and sore back for weeks that was prohibiting her from playing soccer. Dr. Missimer was able to diagnose and treat her, and after just 2 visits, she played a soccer game pain-free! With Dr. Missimer’s knowledge and treatment plan, and Jocelyn’s dedication and commitment to the exercises, she continues to be pain-free. I am so thankful for her!

Arianne is really one of a kind. I came to her after months of pain. I wasn’t getting any sleep, I was barely able to sit down and stand up on my own (I’m 28 years old), it took me 20 minutes to dress myself and I couldn’t put on my own socks and shoes. I was at a breaking point. I’m not someone who takes pain medication so I tried additional stretches, yoga, a chiropractor, rest, etc. Arianne had been recommended to my by someone at my gym so I finally gave her a call. During my first visit Arianne listened to me give her a long-winded history of all my injuries. I was rattling them off, thinking they meant nothing, until she explained that all of it, literally EVERYTHING was connected. She genuinely seemed excited to fix me. I started making progress almost immediately, starting with learning how to breathe properly! It’s hard for me to be “benched” from all activities but I got myself in the mindset of getting healthy. I don’t know if I could’ve done that with someone other than Arianne. Arianne was extremely invested in my success and because of that I wanted to get better for myself but also for her, so I listened! Fast forward, in less than 2 months I am back at the gym, building my strength and stamina back up. More importantly though, I know how to listen to my body, I know how to breathe properly and I know what signs to look for to avoid injury down the road. Like many, exercise for me is my therapy and I can’t thank Arianne enough for helping me get back into the swing of things (pun intended). Thank you so much!!”

“I had hurt my back when I was just 17 years old. 36 years, multiple doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, yoga instructors, fitness gurus later, I met you. You were giving a golf movement program, and from across the room you noticed my pain. You told me to get a script from my doctor and that you’d exam me. You were confident you could cure my back pain. I did what you asked, and you did what you said you would do. You cured my 36 year problem! You helped me with my shoulder too! You’ve shown yourself to be not just an expert in your field but an expert’s expert! Your positivity is contagious, and your genuine concern for all your patients is what I admire most and why I confidently recommend you to anyone in need.”
