First of all, I’m one of the biggest skeptics out there when it comes to things that sound “too good to be true.” I’ve had a bad knee since college (dealing with pain, swelling and popping for 10 years sucks). I’ve had 4 total surgeries on one knee, 2 major ACL/meniscus tears, a tibia plateau fracture, a knee scope and all of that resulted in Kaiser telling me that I was partial bone on bone, that I have an arthritic knee and that they couldn’t do anything else to help me. They basically said stop running, working out, and doing the things you love. I’d always tried to tough it out because if my knee was going to hurt I might as well have the rest of my body feel good after exercising.
I first heard about Rodie through one of the awesome trainers, Raul Reyes, at the Boxing Club. He said Rodie was a “Witch Dr” who’s helped numerous athletes recover from devastating injuries. I blew off Raul’s advice for a while to meet Rodie until my knee got so bad that it was hurting just walking around the office and getting out of bed that week. I called Rodie, told him some of my symptoms and we set an appointment for a consultation.
It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, hands down! Rodie had a unique way of repairing some of the clicking/popping issues I had going on in my knee (lots of pain at the moment he does it, followed by a “too good to be true” feeling of relief, lightness, and fluidity). He also tells you straight up about the areas you need to improve (my right leg was way weaker than my left from years of babying it) and how to go about doing it. Rodie really has a gift for healing and my knee feels WAY better than before I first started treatment with him. I really did feel a hopelessness with that knee and he blew my expectations out of the water. I wish I had reached out to him or been introduced to him sooner.
Also, as you get to know Rodie, he has a ton of wisdom outside the traditional health benefits of whatever’s bugging you (he does more than knees). He also has a lot of very practical and helpful life advice on life philosophy, diet, exercise, sales (my profession), etc. He has a no-nonsense approach and it’s one that you have to work at, but literally results are up to you if you listen to what Rodie tells you and put in the work.
Rodie is an awesome guy and I can’t recommend him strongly enough!
