WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I had been suffering continuous knee pains and aches, to the point where it had been affecting my training and ability to perform certain tasks in the day. I have had a history of injuries from herniated discs to ruptured patellar tendon. I had approached Dr. Ray through a contact, in Late 2019, that was familiar with the platform being used at the time, at which point we spoke and then started rehabbing/training with a goal of being able to compete in powerlifting. The experience has been incredible to say the least. I got stronger than I had ever been before, my pains and aches became manageable and I developed a level of self awareness and understanding of how to navigate pains, symptoms or injuries along the way. Thank you Dr. Ray for all the help and guidance you had shared. It really was life changing.
I worked with Dr. Ray after having surgery to repair a meniscus root tear. As a middle aged woman, I was in the exact cohort of people for whom this surgery often fails and I was incredibly fearful of re-injuring myself during the rehabilitation process. I was also afraid that I'd never regain full use of my knee and be able to return to so many of the activities I love which include cycling and hiking. Dr. Ray prescribed rehab exercises remotely and we communicated daily. He answered my questions, provided reassurance when I became discouraged, and patiently worked with me through the inevitable ups and downs of rehab. By the time I finished with Dr. Ray, my knee was pain free and I was much stronger overall than I was before I was injured.
During my time as a patient with Mike, Mike has been an excellent clinician, coach, friend, mentor, trainer and any other 'role' that I've needed at the time. Pain rehab and performance coaching is a great two-way process with Dr Ray, and he regularly asks for my feedback as well as sharing his. I do recommend Mike's services to friends and family regularly. A browse of Dr Ray's IG will show how knowledgeable and passionate he is about educating and helping people, and that comes across in his coaching.
