Nicola Folino, Personal Trainer

I love it when I get an email from a trainer who really gets it!

Nicola Folino is a 46-year-old mother of two, a former low back pain sufferer and a personal trainer.  Due to her own issues with crippling lower back pain, that at times prevented her from engaging in her love for fitness, she embarked on a mission to try to fix the problem.

From Nicola:

"I spoke with doctors and chiropractors and read and read and read some more! I eventually discovered Stuart McGill and it changed my world. I read all of his books, watched his videos, attended his seminars and I am waiting to sign up for his "McGill Certification Program" which is coming soon!  I have "fixed" my own back pain and enjoy fitness full time again!  I have developed a Personal Training Program based on Stuart McGill's methods for my clients with low back pain and have had great success!  I also just invested in one of the spine models from Dynamic Disc Designs which is a phenomenal teaching tool."

Sibley Spine Center

Sibley Spine focuses on identifying and effectively treating the specific underlying root problem - not just covering up the symptoms with medication. Their advanced systems and state-of-art technology allows them, utilizing spinal isolation technique, to carefully deliver precisely calculated healing forces of progressive resistive dynamic resistance and motion to the injured areas of the spine. This stimulates tissue, disc and joint cartilage growth and repair.  Designated supplements secondarily supply some of the necessary building blocks to enhance healing.

Function continues to improve as the discs and cartilage joints of the spine (facets) continue to heal, allowing pain to progressively diminish. The surrounding muscles can now relax and secondary muscular pain improves as well. As pain is alleviated, function is allowed to improve. During each brief treatment, your body's healing response is guided by custom treatment protocols that are individually designed for your unique and specific problems.

Their highly trained expert staff works closely with a board certified, double fellowshipped orthopedic surgeon who specializes in Disorders of the Spine, and sub-specializes in spinal diagnostics and advanced non-surgical orthopedic treatment approaches.
