I recently met Jennifer Edwards, the Clinical Director and a Physical Therapist at Apple Physical Therapy. Apple Physical Therapy is an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Washington. Jennifer has lived a very active lifestyle and has been a Physical Therapist for nearly 13 years. We asked Jennifer to test our CoreStretch product and give us some feedback. Jennifer has been using the CoreStretch for about 3 weeks.
Jennifer has suffered from tight muscles and fascia her whole life, and really feels it in her hamstrings, IT band, and lats.
Medi-Dyne: What Medi-Dyne products do you currently use? Had you heard of Medi-Dyne before the CSM?
Medi-Dyne: A few weeks ago we asked you to test the CoreStretch. What did you think?
Jennifer: I love the Core Stretch, as does my staff. The majority of my patients really like it as well. We have been using it as part of a stretching regime after doing a cardio warm-up or after exercises. We’ve mainly used it while sitting in a chair for hamstrings, Piriformis and lats.
Medi-Dyne: Would you continue to recommend the CoreStretch to patients?
Jennifer: There’s nothing like the CoreStretch so we weren’t using anything like this. We just had people doing basic stretching without any assistive device. We have recommended the CoreStretch to patients!
The Medi-Dyne Team would like to thank Jennifer for sharing her thoughts on the CoreStretch and wish Jennifer, her staff, and patients the best of luck in their recovery process!
