Sveta, Massachusetts USA

I am so happy I found Sterling Structural Therapy! I was diagnosed with a bulging disk last year. The pain was excruciating. I couldn’t walk for more than 15 minutes, couldn’t sleep, sit, and was depressed as I felt that I couldn’t live my normal life. I went through chiropractors, physical therapy but nothing helped. I didn’t want to do a back surgery knowing that the success rate is not high. Finally, I was searching the Internet for solutions …

Rick’s Story

VIRTUAL CLIENT
Lindsay Boccardo, Indiana USA

At first I was hesitant to not be in person. I have gone through so many different types of treatment – Chiropractor, Sports Medicine and PT, massage, Active Release Therapy, at home treatments… and nothing could stop my chronic pain except Advil. Ugh.

I started working with Anna and felt very supported and understood. She could still “see” all my issues through my laptop and would be tweaking …

VIRTUAL CLIENT
Margaret Mountford, California USA

I have been working with Anna at Sterling Structural for about 10 sessions. The pain of my frozen shoulder has greatly diminished and I have increased mobility in that shoulder. I’m not 100% yet, but I am confident with continuing with the exercises and being conscious of my body placement I will increase movement in that shoulder. I have also had issues with pain in the coccyx area which makes sitting uncomfortable. Anna has taught me an exercise which has eliminated this completely …

VIRTUAL CLIENT
Lexi Harrison, Tokyo JAPAN

When I had a herniated disc earlier this year, I was living with horrendous pain daily, and it was all I could do to just walk around each day. I found out about Sterling Structural Therapy through a video of their LIFE TALK 2018 presentation. I wanted to reach out but was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get help because I live outside the US. My worries quickly dissipated when I met with Dana virtually

I have been recovering from an ankle injury for 8 months. I made more progress after 4 sessions with SST than I had after 6 months of traditional physical therapy. My sessions have all been virtual. The therapist was incredible and the results speak for themselves!

Steve’s Story

VIRTUAL CLIENT
Valerie Leonatti, Illinois USA

Over the past year, during the Covid pandemic, we had virtual sessions. It’s amazing how the therapists can detect almost imperceptible imbalances. The personalized “exercises “are not difficult, but are very precise and do take time … but it has made a difference in eliminating pain over this past year.

VIRTUAL CLIENT
Shadia Derbyshire, Michigan USA

I am writing this to give you hope – I dealt with chronic back pain for 3.5 years… and this was on the heels of a 4 year issue with my hip that resulted in surgery. I tried chiropractic care (3 different practices), physical therapy (4 different practices), 2 different back specialists… I tried fascial stretch therapy, massage therapy, Graston, PEMF, trigger point injections…and on and on. Really, you name it and I’m sure I tried it. I foam rolled, massaged it and stretched it. I was desperate to find a solution …

Lynne W.P.

Working with SST has taken me from debilitating off-&-on pain in my back, hip, and knee, to a place of understanding of the “why” it is happening, and how to keep myself out of pain. Importantly, they have given me the tools to help me keep myself pain-free. Even now, when I do slip up, and wake up with back discomfort or unable to do even a basic side bend, I am amazed at how quickly I can remedy that on my own.

VIRTUAL CLIENT
Mercedes Lohnen, THE NETHERLANDS

I have been dealing with chronic pain for the last 4 years due to an accident when I was a teenager. I would wake up with pain, go to bed with pain and even wake up in the middle of the night with pain. I tried everything and was feeling quite hopeless. When I saw Dana’s video about fascia I decided to give it a try. During the intake Dana gave me an exercise and I experienced pain relief immediately. Still I was skeptical. It has been 2 weeks now …

Sterling Structural Therapy has been a lifesaver for me! When starting out the program (100% virtually), I had multiple issues – hips, back, shoulders, neck, and more. And I had tried everything, literally – from acupuncture to traditional PT to steroid injections to surgery and on and on, but I couldn’t find lasting results. I can’t describe how incredible the results from Sterling have been …

Over three decades ago, I underwent a spinal fusion and assumed that would put an end to my back and neck issues. Little did I know that it was just the beginning. With increasing pain in the ensuing years and desperate to avoid more surgery, I sought every kind of treatment — nerve ablation, epidurals, cortisone, PRP, acupuncture, physical therapy, oral medication, massage therapy, and an experimental procedure out of Germany …

In 2017 I developed a sharp pain in my right shin. It was so severe that I could not walk more than a few steps. I went to my internal medicine doctor, then to a pain management doctor and finally to the Cleveland Clinic. The Clinic diagnosed the problem as a pinched nerve at the base of my vertebrae and recommended an operation. It was a complicated operation …

I began working with the SST team almost 12 months ago to alleviate lower back pain, which had been “managed” with a dose of chiropractor visits, yoga and other forms of strengthening. As a relatively active and health conscious person, I thought SST may offer some additional insights on how to alleviate my chronic back pain. What I found working with SST was not only a way to alleviate pain but also …

For 3 years, I have suffered with lower back pain caused by herniated discs and arthritis of the facet joint. I felt like I had a steel plate in my spine. I have been through injections, physical therapy (2X), muscle manipulation and lots of daily pain pills. I was in constant stabbing pain. Could not stand or sit for long periods of time. My friend kept telling me I should go to SST. I finally went and wished I had gone 2 years sooner…

Why I chose Sterling Structural Therapy? I had excruciating pain in my neck and right shoulder. I was diagnosed with cervical facet syndrome. After weeks of doctor appointments, physical therapy, cortisone shots, massage and finally 2 surgical treatments of lidocaine shots in my neck, I was barely mildly better. When one is in constant pain it saps one’s energy as well as affects our emotional and mental state. I was referred to SST by my Physician …
