More About the Author

I am a sports and orthopedic physical therapist, personal trainer, Pilates instructor, Hanna Somatics practitioner, and speaker living in Denver, CO. In my clinic, Body in Balance Physical Therapy, all my therapists have been trained in the approaches found in my books. I have been practicing physical therapy since 1996 and have attended hundreds of hours of seminars and clinics to create the Fixing You series (www.FixingYouBooks.com). I specialize in treating chronic pain and am deeply satisfied in helping someone who has had decades of pain become free of it.

In my seminars, I bring this information to life by evaluating and treating volunteers from the audience to show exactly how this information works. This is an exciting experience because it removes the mystique of treating back or neck pain. There's nothing that drives home the point more than seeing someone fixed right before your eyes!

I grew up on a farm in Ohio and traveled the world for several years before becoming a physical therapist. My world travels taught me to count my blessings and opened my eyes to other ways of thinking. Other than helping people fix their bodies, my passions are travel and exploration and hope to merge all three some day!

I was introduced to Rick Olderman's FixingYou books via an Amazon recommendation. After reading a few paragraphs using the "Look Inside" feature, I decided to give the book a try. I'm hoping to improve some symptoms from standing on one leg over time. A few things I'd like to share about the book:

1) The book is based on current medical research. It is very easy to read. The concepts make a lot of common sense.

2) The anatomy introduced in the book is very informative and not too hard to understand. I felt I got enough information to get on the right track of self help.

3) Rick pointed out some very common problems people have with a couple simple case studies. I once considered the issues unique to me. Now I realize that my case is typical among people of many different trades. And my issues have been corrected successfully.

4) Rick included some simple and effective exercises that really work. Besides verbal explanation and illustrations, he also loaded some online videos for people who purchased the book. This eliminated lots of guess work and errors when doing the exercises.

I highly recommend Rick's book. If you're reading this review, you owe it to yourself to get the book.

I read half the book and even though Rick advises to read the whole thing before doing the exercises, well, I couldn't help myself...I jumped right in. I did most of the exercises for the first time yesterday. Today I looked at a few of his on-line videos and did all of the exercises in the book. I can't believe how good my neck feels! It hasn't felt this loose and pain-free in many, many years...as far back as I can remember, practically. The concept of my shoulders being responsible for neck pain simply never occurred to me and was never mentioned as a possibility when I tried to get help through chiropractors, massage therapists, orthobionomy practitioners and acupuncturists. I really like the idea of helping myself too...going to all these health care practitioners can get really expensive and very frustrating when they don't "fix" you. I'm not a couch potato and I do stretching every day when I get up, but what with a couple of minor car accidents long ago, and falling down on our rocky terrain while hiking more than a few times, plus some bad posture habits, my whole body has gradually gotten so out of whack I didn't know where to start. Lately I've been constantly gulping down ibuprofen due to almost constant headaches. My neck was at the very least chronically tense, but also usually quite stiff and sore. I'm looking forward to Rick's books that focus on hip problems and shoulder problems because I need both of those too! I've had an extremely painful shoulder for the past month or so due to too much time at the computer, I think. But the exercises in the Neck Pain book have helped this as well.

This book is extremely easy to read and understand. You're given a batch of exercises as well as helpful tips to follow during your daily routine.

From this book I learned how certain standing, sitting, and walking habits can grind away cartilage and weaken muscles and joints. By using the movement guidelines presented in this book, my joints feel better and the muscles around the hip and knee joints feel stronger, taking some stress away from the bones.

Have you gone to the doctor and were told that one leg is shorter than the other? And you thought 'how in the world did my leg shrink'? Most likely your hip is out of alignment and the whole problem is muscular. You may be prescribed a heel lift that supposedly fixes everything, but it may make things worse, because now you're adding another issue for your body to deal with and it may even pull out your hip even more (like in my case).

This book explains what's happening with your hips, has some good drawings to explain the issue and some simple exercises. I've had this hip issue (and knee problems) for years and I tried all kinds of stuff, including physical therapy, yoga, pilates etc. This book is what finally took me from frustration to healing. Make no mistake, your hip may be out because of bad habits, or from an injury and the longer you've lived with your problem, the longer it will take to get better. But don't give up! It's so worth it! Besides what's the alternative...

The hardest thing about the healing process is to get rid of bad habits like crossing your legs or standing on one leg, slouching in the chair, sitting uneven etc. But this book will help you identify those and give you positive reinforcement that you can actually fix yourself. A big thank you to the author!!

Before I launch into this review I'd like to give some context to my comments, a frame for what follows about what I see as a remarkably helpful break-through approach to pain management and healing:

Context -- As someone who has lived and worked in chronic pain(CP) since 1984 following a botched lumbar fusion (back) surgery, I think I've read more books and articles on the subject than I care to remember, many of them redundant, overly theoretical or simply not helpful to me at all. So I began this book with a jaded eye, a sort of "show me something I don't know" mind-set.But after reading and using two books in this "Fixing You" series by Rick Olderman I felt compelled to spread the word so that more people might take advantage of this substantive yet practical handbook for dealing with specific pain areas. So here goes:

If you or someone you love is in CP then you already know that long-term intractable pain - at any degree of intensity - is a totally different creature than episodic pain. In fact, in my own and many other CP sufferers' cases, what works well for most episodic pain simply does not work for long-term pain. In fact, what works with episodic pain (tooth ache, broken bone etc) when applied to chronic conditions often leads to a whole secondary set of problems. Narcotics are perhaps the best known example of this compounding effect, for in chronic pain cases the dosage must be increased over time to provide the same relief. Then, unless guided by the holistic perspectives such as those of this book, so often CP worsens and leads to depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, suicidal ideation and anger control difficulties and more. It is a hell I would not wish on my worst enemy.
