Our Success Stories

What an adventure! My story started with a lot of pain, frustration, and confusion. Here I was, about to turn 30 with neck problems from years of weightlifting with incorrect posture, not sure what to do next. Thankfully, I found Bettina and her wonderful practice, she was patient, yet challenged me with a plethora of knowledge + experience. She pushed me in all the right ways, and here I am nearly 2 months later PAIN-FREE, and feeling good again for the first time in a long time.

Our Success Stories

Before coming to Rising Sun, I was very unhappy with my physical condition. I was having constant headaches, neck pain and dizziness. These things were having a drastic effect on my personal and professional life. Working with Bettina over the past few months has really changed my life, all of my symptoms have gotten drastically better and I am feeling so much better in my day to day life.

-- Christopher R.

Our Success Stories

When I came to Rising Sun, I was hobbled from intense back pain and in really bad shape. I couldn’t sleep, lift anything, exercise or even sit for a long time. After sessions with Thomas and Bettina I was finally able to do all those things and I feel great! No medications needed, just tailored exercise and stretching routines that I will use for many years with no more pain!

-- Everett P.
