Jim Verners (Verners Chiropractic) is a true master of his profession. He's also an ART (active release techniques) guru, having studied under Dr. Leahy himself. Jim is continually updating his skills and learning innovative new procedures. So when I presented to him last week, his prognosis was that with 3 or so treatments of FAKTR my knee would be better than new.
FAKTR is Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehab - sounds harmless, doesn't it? The idea behind it is to heal soft tissue and fascial disorders through the use of instruments. He used the Graston technique on me, which involves treating me while under load - as in he has me do movements while applying treatment with his surgical-steel grade instrument and hands.
