[Chronic Neck & Back Pain] Janet St Paul Shares Her Success Story at CORE




How did you find about us at CORE?

So when I moved here back in ’07, I realized that my back was much worse than I thought because it moved from my lumbar to my cervical. Stephen’s name showed up with three different caregivers that I was seeing at the time, my acupuncturist, my chiropractor and my therapist and I thought well this guy keeps appearing, he must be worth it…

How Long Did You Wait To Come To CORE?

It took me a while to actually get to Stephen after I learned about him. I had to figure it out and then it just kept showing up so much I was like I’ve got to try to figure out how to make this work for myself… two years… about two years… before I could make it work to get in…

What Was Your Back & Neck Pain Causing You To Miss Out On?

So the things that we’re impeding me the most is I’m a hair stylist and my arms are always up away from my body and I stand many hours during the day. I’ve dealt with my lumbar since my 20s but the cervical connection and where the disc was bad was something new and totally different to manage and it was so excruciatingly painful. I had to figure out like if I can’t work how do I get better to allow myself to do work or more of it. I needed some immediate relief and all the standard channels that I was doing that helped my lumbar were not helping my neck…

What Else Did You Try Before Coming To CORE?

Before I came to CORE I was trying acupuncture, bodywork, cranial sacral therapy, I was trying exercise, trainers, different physical therapists and then I realized it just was not getting me where I needed to be, it wasn’t having enough results that was lasting…

What Did Know About Physical Therapy Before Coming To CORE?

I knew very little about physical therapy before coming here relative to how Stephen and CORE do it. I was used to a very standardized physical therapy where it wasn’t much hands-on, I didn’t learn anything or very little about my own body. I didn’t know how to feel certain things and help myself correct them on my own, which was huge because I traveled a lot. I would go back and forth from Austin to New York at the time and I was flying a tremendous amount so I needed tools that helped me to help myself. I didn’t learn any of that until I came here…

What did you Know About Pilates & GYROTONIC® Exercise Before Coming To Us?

I knew zero about Pilates and Gyrotonic exercise before I came to the studio. I was always fascinated by it but I didn’t ever have the time or try to fit it into my schedule. Now it’s just something that I constantly do and if I don’t do it, I don’t feel well…

What Would You Say To Someone With Back or Neck Pain That Is Skeptical About Coming To See Us At CORE?

The irony about talking to someone in pain about how different this is, is my 81 year old mother just moved to Austin and out of nowhere she started to feel some of the degeneration. I think part of it is because it’s the first time in her life she ever allowed herself to take a breath, so when she took that breath for the first time in 81 years she had a little pain.

I was like, I know exactly where to take you and she was very nervous about it but the beauty is Stephen can relate to people on many different levels and explain things in a simple way. I always say you’ve got to try everything at least once and then if you don’t feel like you make a little headway, totally understandable… But for me the difference was huge and sharp just the first time and the way that he was speaking to me and the way that he was touching my body was so different. I felt like okay I gotta keep doing this because I feel so much better…

What Did You Like Most About Coming To See Us At CORE?

What did I enjoy the most about coming here? I would say how easy and pleasant it is, how flexible they are and working with your schedule because my schedule is crazy and it could be a little difficult and tricky. I think it’s just how I feel so different and so much better and my body feels lighter and I wish I could come more often actually… awesome all right that’s it…
