“Dr. Damien has helped me overcome back pain that persisted well over a year! I was skeptical at first, but I am now back to playing pickleball, going on walks with my husband, and I can now say “YES” to fun family activities with the kids again. He has also helped my teenage daughter with her hip and knee problems she suffered with during high school sports. Thank you Bodyworx!”
