Gardening Hurting your Back?

Hopefully, the message we received from Mother Nature this past weekend is going to stick around. Of course, many of us spent that time outdoors thanks to the bright sunshine and pleasant temperatures. 

As we continue rolling into spring, we are getting outside more often. 

Maybe that means golf, tennis, swimming, kayaking, jogging or good old yard work. Getting the yard cleaned up, planting those pots, mowing the grass, bending down and using muscles that have been dormant all winter surely feels great in the moment, but it might mean some of you are sore the next day. You also may be experiencing tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, shin splints and more.

Doctor Sheri Russell has been helping people eliminate pain for 25 years! This is a great time of year to prioritize caring for your body so you can remain active, healthy & strong. Doing the things you love to do, pain free!

For their twenty-fifth year, The Russell Center now has a new logo and a brand-new sign to catch your eye as you drive through Beverly. Located at 319 Elliot Street in Beverly, MA, Doc Sheri is seeing new patients and offering a special introductory package on SoftWave Therapy. The Russell Center also has a Massage Therapist and Doctor of Acupuncture to offer an entire wellness experience.

Remember, Mother’s Day is this weekend and what better gift for mom than the gift of wellness? Perhaps a visit to The Russell Center is just what the doctor ordered. Take away her aches & pains so she feels like new again and Mom will definitely thank you! 

Kilimanjaro or Bust!

If you have heard of SoftWave therapy but have not yet tried it, here’s a TESTIMONIAL you need to read:

Johanna Hughes, visiting from the UK came to see Dr. Sheri Russell at The RUSSELL CENTER in July 2022 as a referral. Pre-Covid, she had planned a trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro which had been canceled or postponed several times.

Finally, the trip was back on her calendar and scheduled for September 2022.

Unfortunately, her body and her calendar weren’t aligning. Johanna suffered a hip injury about six years ago that gradually led to other issues in her right leg including her knee, adductor muscles, and IT band.

A fit and active person, Johanna regularly practiced yoga & pilates as well as played Padel (a racquet sport that is a mix between tennis and squash) and (English) football.

Unfortunately, her injury got to the point where her leg was giving way when she made any fast-paced change in direction or on any downhill slope.

By April of last year, she was fraught to think she would miss out on this trip of a lifetime as every step had become painful.

In July, she signed up for eight sessions of SoftWave therapy. This treatment coincided with training time for the trek to the top and no rigorous training was allowed during these sessions so that was challenging.

Doc Sheri was able to alleviate all the issues related to Johanna’s hip injury and after her eight sessions, she put her treatment to the test. On September 11, 2022, Johanna did the Yorkshire three peaks challenge, climbing 23 miles in 11 hrs. and 24 minutes!

Anything under 12 hrs. is considered a good result. She told us, “I practically jogged down the last hour and my leg hadn’t given way once. Now I knew I had a chance at Kilimanjaro!”

In October, Johanna fulfilled her dream and completed the hardest physical challenge of her life. She successfully climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro- six days up and two days down. “Summit day” required 16 hours of hiking both up and down to reach the top and only on the eighth day did she say she felt any very mild discomfort.

SoftWave therapy got her body back to peak performance! While you may not have plans as lofty as Kilimanjaro, any pain that is standing in your way and preventing you from doing things you love is pain that Doc Sheri can help treat.

As they say at The Russell Center, “We take care of the most important piece of equipment you own- YOU!”
