About 6 years ago, I got under a squat rack for a workout. It had been quite a while since I did squats and was smart and took it very easy. It didn't matter.
I knew I was in trouble with how my lower back felt when I was done. From that point forward (about 2 years total) my back was destroyed. I woke every morning to a severe spasm. So much so, that my body was contorted (aka couldn't stand up straight) and I was in pain all day every day.
I am a chiropractor by trade, so of course, I was getting adjusted two times per week and also receiving spinal decompression two times per week. This treatment barely held me where I was and did not improve my condition. I received an MRI and was told that I had massive degenerative disc disease from all the years of football that I played. I was also told that I was not a surgical candidate. Which at the time disappointed me - that's how much pain I was in. I just wanted any help at all.
During the last 6 months of my two-year stint, I began wearing a back brace all-day. Prior to this point, I would usually would only wear it at times, but the condition was actually getting worse. At this point, I received two epidurals, approximately two months in a row. The first one actually gave me relief for 1 month! And the second worked for one day.
One day, I was working on one of my absolute favorite patients of mine, Linda Leonard. She told me about the guy she was working for and had known for years - Diamond Dallas Page. She informed me about his DDPY program and said I should give it a try. I was absolutely desperate and began the program shortly after talking with her.
I can honestly say (and I continue to tell at least 3 patients a week) that within two months of doing DDPY, my back pain was gone. Now 6 years later, it's still gone!
I have referred countless chiropractic patients to the program. It's easy because it saved me. Currently, I am a partner in the only stand-alone neurofeedback company in the southeast. We help those suffering with anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, ADD, headaches and even executives just trying to get a leg up on the competition. What better adjunct to helping those with the above conditions than to add in the DDPY workouts. I continue to refer to DDPY constantly in my chiropractic, functional medicine and neurofeedback worlds. I do it happily as I repeat, it saved my world.
