As many of you know, for years I have been often referred to as “Doc on the move in heels!” My professional practice, media appearances, dance competitions mom-role for my two girls and my workouts kept me moving, non-stop all day and all week long!
Well, that all came to a screeching halt a few months ago when a freak injury resulted in bilateral medial knee ligament tears in both my knees. It all happened in an instant, I was at home in my workout clothes heading to the gym when I slipped on an oily spot on the ceramic kitchen floor. As I twisted to try and land properly, I ripped ligaments in both of my knees!!! So, there I was, “Doc on the move….no more!” writhing in pain on the kitchen floor, immediately sidelined from my active life with an injury that usually victimizes football players!
Well, I received immediate medical care and was following a traditional recovery plan. However, my prescribed recovery lifestyle was overly sedentary and stifling. This not only impacted my physical well-being it also put great pressures on my usual positive spirit and attitude. Fortunately, a friend of mine, Ray Lewis, yes Super Bowl champ Ray Lewis, introduced me to an incredible new device called the Juvent Micro-Impact Platform™. Turns out Ray had discovered Juvent from his football world connections. Well, I was intrigued to give the Juvent a try given my long term interest in innovative, natural health technology. And after all, I did have a football type injury and I was at my wit’s end.
Well, that was one of the best choices I ever made! The positive impact that Juvent has had on my physical recovery and overall well-being has been nothing short of extraordinary!
Simply put, the way the Juvent platform works is that you stand on it for 20 minutes per session and it sends thousands of gentle, calibrated, relaxing pulses up through your feet, knees, legs and throughout your entire body. It is a very soothing experience and one that helps stimulate circulation and lymphatic flow inside the body which helps your body heal itself from the inside out!
Since making the Juvent part of my recovery, my knee pain has significantly decreased, I am finally walking better, walking faster and achieving more stability daily. I am not yet all the way back to my “Doc on the move in heels” self, But now with Juvent I know I will get there! Last but not least, one of the biggest surprises — I was especially delighted to notice that after using Juvent I noticed the added value of improved skin texture, softness and radiance which I attribute to the stimulation of lymphatic system and lymphatic fluids and improved circulation inside the body.
