“Liz knew right away that one of my legs didn’t line up with the other. She had me do some simple exercises to help find the root cause and where to begin. She gave me great feedback and information I needed to understand what was going on and what I needed to do. She was also very encouraging and positive that I could be helped!! She also helped me navigate some visual images to see the exercises I needed to do on my own to make it all come together. Liz really knows a lot and I feel like I have hope to get better. Thank you!” ~ Wylly S.
