Dr. Bernard is one of the kind of chiropractic doctors that are hard to find! I was lucky to rely on his expertise twice in the course of the last 10 months, due to fairly serious athletic (grappling, BJJ) injuries – a meniscus tear and the recent shoulder injury. In both cases, my situation was such that I felt I’d be out of the line-up for at least 3-4 months, no training, slow path to recovery. But Duriell not only accurately diagnosed the injury in the first assessment session (later confirmed by an MRI scan), but immediately proceeded to apply the needed therapy, restoring me to almost 90% mobility in the affected area within the first 3-4 sessions. With my first, meniscus injury I was back to training in 6-7 weeks and my knee still going strong. With the second injury, shoulder tendons, two weeks ago, I was restored to almost 90% of my full capacity, after the first 3 sessions (first week) and will start my slow paced return to BJJ training with full recovery expected. Two weeks ago I couldn’t use my right arm at all, suffering from horrendous, debilitating shoulder pain, no sleep for three straight days/night, swelling down the entire arm, pinched nerve shooting pain starting in the shoulder all the way down to the wrist. Two weeks and 5 sessions later, doing push-ups and pull-ups, 20 reps at a time – though cautiously, but still, back to normal. It feels like a miracle, but really it’s Dr. Bernard full spectrum expertise at work! Not a bit of exaggeration, just facts. Thank you!!!
