Dr. Field's developed a regimen to help with my situation. He used office anatomy/skeleton charts to show me origin and problem areas to help with my understanding of why the prescribed regimen was needed. He reviewed each technique with me (which was very helpful) prior to my release. Additionally, he fitted me for orthodics.
