I had suffered a major ski accident four years ago, causing me debilitating pain and requiring reconstructive surgery of my knee. I came to see Dr. Armitage in the middle of May, and after 4 weeks of treatment I successfully completed my first full squat in 4 years!

A year and a half ago, I was told by a specialist that I may never play golf or hockey again at the age of 32. After trying physio for a year and getting no results, I took the advice of a teammate and former patient of Dr. Armitage, and began to see Robert. It has been 20 visits now and I am back on the golf course. The ice rink, which was once a dream, now appears to be a reality for me very soon.
I came to Dr. Armitage 4 years ago with severe lower back and neck problems that interfered with my life and my desire to mountain trail-run at a competitive level. He has worked with me not only to overcome the pain, but to help with my movement and flexibility so that I am consistently placing in the top 3 of my age group and the top third of total female racers.
