I have had problems with my back since college, so for about the past 8 years. I was an athlete in college and would do regular stretching and various strengthening exercises to alleviate the pain and soreness that was what seemed to be up and down my spine. I guess after so many years I just got used to the pain. A couple years after college I was tired of just doing the same old thing in the gym every day, so I decided to pick up MMA. I loved it right away, I got into the best shape of my life and started to really get into it. However, my back issues came back and I was hurting my back regularly during the intense MMA workouts. So I went to a chiropractor twice a week for 3 months. It helped with the day to day but it was really only temporary, soon after I stopped going my back pain came back. I knew Ujjwal from class and that he did physical therapy sessions, so when I started to hurt my back again in class, some of my classmates and instructors suggested I talk to him about some therapy sessions, and that was probably one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. During our private sessions, he would slowly work out the pain and kinks in my back, and then showed me how to strengthen it with exercises and stretches, and the to top it all off we got to do a little sparring and mma which brought the whole thing together. I started focusing on strengthening my back at the gym as a result, and performing the stretches and exercises he showed me. I havent seen Ujjwal in about a month, and I can honestly say my back has never felt better. No pain at all. I am the strongest I have ever been and I am in the best shape I have ever been in, and I really believe its because of the strength of my back and core and the flexibility I have gained from Ujjwal’s techniques. Im not just saying all this, its true. Again, I was a Division 1 lacrosse player with access to the best athletic trainers and doctors in sports, and Ujjwal did for me what athletic trainers and chiropractors couldn’t. If you have any issues with your body like this, soreness of the muscles or aches and pains, go to Ujjwal. He is incredibly knowledgeable and pushes you to get better, and before you know it you will be. Best thing I’ve done for my body in a very long time.
