To whomever it may concern: Linda Nedilsky is both knowledgeable and professional. She helped me deal with chronic back pain over the course of several months. Not only did my condition improve, but Linda helped me to gain a deeper understanding of the causes of my ongoing pain. This in turn has helped me manage my condition better than I have in the past, despite years of failed approaches. I recommend Linda Nedilsky to anyone in need of pain management or body-work services. Thank you very much

In January 2010, I went to see a chiropractor for low back pain. At the time, I believed the problem was my SI joint (this is the area I felt the pain) and that my running workout has instigated the problem. After two months of sessions, I felt no better than when I began and after some research, and in March 2010, I decided to switch to a chiropractor who was advertised as also specializing in sports injuries and ART (Active Release Technique). These sessions consisted of electro stimulation around my SI joint (10 minutes) and then ART for 5... Read More

In January 2010, I went to see a chiropractor for low back pain. At the time, I believed the problem was my SI joint (this is the area I felt the pain) and that my running workout has instigated the problem. After two months of sessions, I felt no better than when I began and after some research, and in March 2010, I decided to switch to a chiropractor who was advertised as also specializing in sports injuries and ART (Active Release Technique). These sessions consisted of electro stimulation around my SI joint (10 minutes) and then ART for 5 to 10 minutes on my right hip area. This specialist advised me to get a foam roller and use that to “roll” out my hip flexor area muscles and my upper and lower back. I was also advised to do the seated QL stretch a few times a day, holding for at least 1 minute on each side. By doing this, I would be “good to go” in a few weeks. After a few weeks of this, I was sometimes better, sometimes worse and decided to see my primary care physician to get a referral for physical therapy. The PT clinic I was referred to was a bit different than your traditional PT that I was used to, and they introduced me to myofascial and trigger points. They also massaged out tight muscles that were contributing to the pain I felt in my lower back. I was taught many stretches to do and given exercise to do at home to build up my “core”. I felt better more days than not but still had days of low back pain and hop pain. I felt this was better than the other specialist I had seen and decided to get an extension from my primary care physical for more sessions of PT. During this visit, after explaining to him some of the techniques and excises we were doing, he gave me card for a myofascial release (MFR) specialist. He said that sometime this had worked when traditional forms of PT and chiropractic had not provided the desired results. After a few more weeks of PT, I decided to give the MFR a try. I contacted Linda in late summer. After our first session, I went days without pain. During the next months of sessions, Linda showed me exercises and proper stretches for managing the tight muscles that were contributing to the low back pain. I was able to begin running again in a limited capacity with a better awareness of what muscles were being used, and where the muscle tightness and imbalances were occurring. Linda also showed me how the muscles in distant locations of the body (i.e. psoas, IT band and others) are connected and how they can affect where pain is felt. In subsequent weeks Linda showed how to use balls of varying sizes to relax and stretch muscles. She also showed how to use a foam roller, not to roll but to provide compression against tight muscles to help relax and stretch. In conjunction with the rubber balls, the foam roller techniques have proven to be one of the most valuable self-help tools for dealing with tight muscles. This is in stark contrast to the “rolling” I was advised to do with previous physical therapist and chiropractors. Overall, what I have learned from Linda is that:

1. It took years for my muscles to get in this tight state that causes pain and it will take time to retrain them,
2. There are techniques, stretches and exercises that can assist with managing and alleviating the pain caused by tight muscles without resorting to medication, injections or surgery.

Receiving MFR from Linda has been a godsend for me. I had recurrent pain in my back, neck, shoulder, elbow and forearm for months that had not responded to typical treatment and was limiting my activities. After several sessions of MFR, I was much improved, pain free and able to return to my normal life and activities. She also balanced my hip after it had rotated incorrectly, causing pain and impacting mobility; it took only one session and my hip has been fine since then. I am a true believer in MFR and in Linda's therapeutic abilities.

As a personal chef I have suffered from tendinitis due to over use of my right arm. The tendinitis caused my muscles in my forearm to become extremely tight and painful. My arm actually felt heavy due to how tight the muscles were. After dealing with this pain for many years with little or no relief through other forms of therapy, Linda introduced me to MFR. She told me that this type of therapy has been very successful in helping people afflicted with tendinitis. I had three sessions with Linda over a month and was pleasantly surprised by the results.... Read More

I had three sessions with Linda over a month and was pleasantly surprised by the results. MFR therapy had decreased my pain considerably. Linda was vigilant in following up with me to be sure that my symptoms had not returned. I would highly recommend Linda if you are suffering as I had been. Cooking is my passion and it is so much nicer to be able to do what I love pain free.

There are no words to describe how knowledgeable, caring and understanding Linda was to my daughter Anna, who was in bad shape and was living in pain. Over the summer, Anna suffered a repetitive injury to her neck and shoulder causing her to have daily tension headaches, neck/shoulder pain and not able to comfortable sleep. We spent the entire summer going to doctors, neurologist, headache specialists, chiropractors, physical therapy, and having three different MRI/MRAs, and x-rays. Nothing seemed to provide any consistent relief; even muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatory medications did not work. Finally, the day before Anna was to return... Read More

Nothing seemed to provide any consistent relief; even muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatory medications did not work. Finally, the day before Anna was to return to college, her neurologist diagnosed with her myofascial syndrome. Now what we were going to do, she went to college 6 hours from home in New Jersey! While researching myofascial syndrome on the internet I came across Linda’s website and learned so much about myofascial therapy. I contacted her and she saw Anna a few days later. Linda went right to work on Anna spending three hours breaking down all her trapped fascia and providing Anna with so much pain relief, knowledge and follow up exercises. After her session, Anna called me and said this is the best she has felt all summer! While Anna will need more sessions, Linda has taken a vested interest in Anna and educating her on the best ways to tackle her myofascial syndrome.

I was skeptical when Linda first told me about MFR. I had never heard of it before, but it kind of made sense. I have been dealing with chronic back pain for over 20 years (back to high school). I’ve seen my share of doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists. Sure, I have gotten some relief, but unfortunately, the pain always returned. And, after back surgery for bone cancer, I added scar tissue and trauma to further exasperate my symptoms. Heavy pain killers were only a temporary fix and for me, they cannot be a way of life. I always feel... Read More

I was skeptical when Linda first told me about MFR. I had never heard of it before, but it kind of made sense. I have been dealing with chronic back pain for over 20 years (back to high school). I’ve seen my share of doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists. Sure, I have gotten some relief, but unfortunately, the pain always returned. And, after back surgery for bone cancer, I added scar tissue and trauma to further exasperate my symptoms. Heavy pain killers were only a temporary fix and for me, they cannot be a way of life.

I always feel better after a session. I feel a release of tension that greatly diminishes my pain and helps my body restore a sense of balance. Through MFR, I have learned to listen to my body, relax, get relief without drugs, and most importantly, to identify and avoid some of the triggers that make my body respond with tension. I explain MFR to my friends and family as a kind of message therapy…the relaxation of a massage with the intense work of therapy – physical and emotional. I feel like I am taking care of myself when I get a treatment, releasing tension and pain in order to function at my body’s optimum level.

Linda, I wanted to let you know how amazing the myofascial release sessions have been. Since my last three sessions my back has not felt this great in a long time. I know I have been seeing you for great massages but the myofascial release is a thousand times better. My chiropractor was impressed at how well I adjusted and even saw a change in my behavior. He has also yet to adjust me for my back being out of alignment and I truly owe it all to you and the treatments. One last thing I would like to share... Read More

Linda,

I wanted to let you know how amazing the myofascial release sessions have been. Since my last three sessions my back has not felt this great in a long time. I know I have been seeing you for great massages but the myofascial release is a thousand times better. My chiropractor was impressed at how well I adjusted and even saw a change in my behavior. He has also yet to adjust me for my back being out of alignment and I truly owe it all to you and the treatments.

One last thing I would like to share with you and we have talked about this before. I played golf this past Monday and usually when I play a round of golf I am out of commission for the rest of the day because my back just stiffens up. This time I felt no tightness and completed my workout and completed chores around the house after golf.

Thanks again for being very patient with me and Suzanne and spending the time in going over the benefits of myofascial release. I can’t wait to get some more sessions.

As an athlete, I used to think that my body was indestructible and that I could never suffer a serious injury. I always thought that as long as I could play the game that my body would naturally just keep up through all the wear and tear I was putting it through. But that wasn’t the case; I injured my back while playing and I thought with that injury would come the end of my career. Then I met Mrs. Linda Nedilsky and I have been very fortunate to have Linda in my life. First of all, nobody asks to... Read More

As an athlete, I used to think that my body was indestructible and that I could never suffer a serious injury. I always thought that as long as I could play the game that my body would naturally just keep up through all the wear and tear I was putting it through. But that wasn’t the case; I injured my back while playing and I thought with that injury would come the end of my career.

Then I met Mrs. Linda Nedilsky and I have been very fortunate to have Linda in my life. First of all, nobody asks to get hurt, but if injury occurs is important to be treated by someone who genuinely wants to see you get healthy. After the first week of Myofascia release, treatment I started to see results and feel better. She not only helps me physically with the treatment, but mentally she continually helps me mentally build my confidence which in turn leads to a faster recovery.

Since the first day I met her, Linda has only one goal in mind to help. She has vastly improved my body physically and continues to help me build my confidence on the court and perform to the best of my ability. Her treatment has helped me return to playing professional basketball. I am currently playing for the Bakersfield Jam of the National Basketball Association Developmental League. I cannot say enough about Linda and words cannot describe the way she has impacted my life.

After going to primary doctor and orthopedic surgeon who both recommended cortisone shots, I found Linda!!!!! After the first session, I actually got off her table and felt taller and straighter and my back pain was almost gone! After a few more sessions my body feels great and she has been my lifesaver. I highly recommend going to Linda. I don’t have shots and life is good.

RECENT SURVEY RESULTS
A recent survey (2013) by Occupational Therapy Students students from Creighton University asked a large group of Occupational Therapists about the use of MFR and their patients results or outcomes regarding the use of MFR exclusively for their patients. The students under the direction of Dr. Amy Matthews, an OT, used a cross section email questionnaire and asked the OT's what type of MFR they used and their reasons for using it. 91% of the people responded were students of John Barnes MFR.

The average success rate for OTHER therapy treatments for pain was around 60%. When asked about the success rate of JB MFR Therapy, the success rate was 98%. This is well beyond what traditional and even some alternative approaches percentages are.

Participants in this survey reported that patients being treated with JOHN BARNES MYOFASCIAL RELEASE TECHNIQUES had the following outcome:

INCREASED RANGE OF MOTION - 97.30%
INCREASED QUALITY OF LIFE - 96.07%
IMPROVE POSTURE - 98.02%
DECREASE PAIN - 99.01%
