“I came to Biojunction because I had hurt my back at Crossfit about 6 weeks previous and was sent to physical therapy after my injury failed to improve with rest and medication. I literally could not sit for more than 5 minutes at a time. I specifically requested to work with Andrew Gray because I knew he had extensive experience with Crossfit and wasn’t going to shake his head at me and tell me that Crossfit is bad for everyone… Andrew is a very smart and intuitive provider whose knowledge of biomechanics is top-notch. We worked on my pain, the injury itself, and on the larger muscular imbalances that contributed to it. He helped me manage my expectations for recovery more realistically… Recovery is not an overnight process but my pain decreased dramatically with our treatment plan and I walked away with a set of exercises and modifications to my daily activities that I continue to use to stay functional. I’m back to where I was pre-injury, pain-free for the most part, and when my back does flare up, I have the tools to deal with it on my own.”
