  1. Hi Dr. Tom-
    Just watched this video of you activating Julian and I think my psoas is performing better just from watching the video!!!

    I haven’t talked to Yaman since she started dancing again (yesterday). I should connect with her tonight for an update. The PT folks were thinking that her ‘dead shoes’ may have caused some overextension which may have stretched or strained the muscle on the top of the foot.

    Thanks for returning my call last week. It really meant a lot to me.
    Warmly – Linda Durack

In November of 2014 I was diagnosed with mononucleosis and the parvo virus. The severe pain caused me to miss the whole 3rd quarter of school and my whole wrestling season. My days consisted of therapy, specialists and hospital testing. I was referred to a pain doctor, as at this point I had zero quality of life. He referred me to Dr. Thomas Nelson for a new type of manipulative therapy. At my first visit with Dr. Nelson, he explained what he does and he started treatment. When he was done I jumped off the table and I was able to run without pain for the first time in 3 months. The work Dr. Thomas Nelson is doing is amazing and a breakthrough that should be known to all. I’ll be forever grateful to him. I have my life back!
