Meet a few of the ninjas who have conquered pain.

“I want to run and lift for as long as my body will let me and I’m confident that Dr. Lily has helped me to continue doing what I love pain free for many more decades.”

Types of pain: Hip and low back.

Affected: Running, lifting, competing, working, playing with kids.

“Pushing through the pain is the technique the military likes to use, but I feel there had to be a better option, and this was definitely the better option.”

Type of pain: Low back and sciatica.

Affected: Work, sleep, shooting competitions.

“Not only do I not need surgery after completing my course of therapy here, I can squat and deadlift completely pain free.”

Type of pain: Hip and shoulder.

Affected: Powerlifting, work, playing with kids.

“I went from unable to do real Judo for about five months, and after two months of treatment, I was able to compete at a world tournament, which is amazing.”

Type of pain: Knee.

Affected: Judo performance.

“When you’re injured, you have to put stuff on pause and be limited. I don’t want to be limited.”

Type of pain: Knee and low back.

Affected: Running, jumping, lifting, playing with kids.

“I’m huge leaps and bounds from where I was before. I knew that I’d be pain free, but I wasn’t expecting everything that I’ve gained after.”

Type of pain: Low back and knee.

Affected: Jiu jitsu, deadlifting, squatting.

Rick: Ranching

When you have a ranch, an insurance agency, and are a volunteer firefighter, there’s no time for the hindrances of pain. So when Rick started having recurring neck pain, and then headaches, he had to do something about it.
Worried that it was something serious, he thought of getting an MRI, but since his symptoms were of classic neck pain and had no red flags, we knew it was something we could help with and that an MRI wouldn’t be useful.
It’s been a year since he completed his physio program, and he’s still pain free. Ranching ain’t easy, but it’s easier without neck pain and headaches.

Tammy: Running

Tammy had already had two ACL repair surgeries on her right knee when it started hurting again and locking up. After taking an MRI, the doctor told her that she had a torn ACL and meniscus and that she’d need another surgery. Otherwise, she’d have to stop running and drastically reduce her activity levels the rest of her life. 

Like any athlete and active mom, this was unacceptable, so she tried chiro, massage, and physical therapy with temporary or no results. 

She heard of Ninja Physio through her friend’s social media posts, and rather than get another surgery, she decided to give us a call. After a few months of diligently following her program, Tammy avoided ACL surgery, can play tennis with her kids, and run again!

Jarrod: CrossFit and running

In 2012, Jarrod was in a motorcycle accident where he injured his back, neck, knee, and shoulder, which required surgery. The doctors told him that he was lucky to walk and would be very limited in his physical abilities the rest of his life. 

He was inactive for a few years, until his son got older and he wanted to help him get in better shape for martial arts and sports. Jarrod started participating in 5Ks in the Centex Race Series and being active with Team Red, White & Blue (RWB), but had to hold back because of the knee pain

Jarrod heard about Ninja Physio through a friend in RWB and signed up. In just a few months, he’s the strongest and fittest he’s been in a decade! He goes to CrossFit Bluestone 5X a week and is consistently lowering his 5K times, which he runs with his son.

Missy: CrossFit

Years of shoulder pain were preventing Missy from progressing with her upper body workouts. She was told by a chiropractor that her shoulder pain was due to scoliosis and that there was nothing to do about it. She was also dealing with months of hip pain that was keeping her up at night and causing her to compensate with squatting and running.

But after Ninja Physio, Missy has been crushing her workouts at CrossFit Bluestone, got her first pull up, dominated the Spring Festivus Games competition, and completed her first Spartan race!

Matt: Soccer, skiing, dancing

After experiencing hip pain in 2020, Matt went to get an MRI. It showed that there was no cartilage in his hips, and Matt was told by 7 doctors that he would need a hip replacement… at 40 years old. He knew that the rehab process would take years, after which he wouldn’t be able to be as active, so surgery was out of the question.

Matt tried many other options to reduce the pain, including a chiropractor, massages, physical therapy, and acupuncture. He was making little progress with these options, and to make matters worse, he started having sciatic pain in 2021. Matt was unable to sleep or even use the bathroom for a week because the pain was so intense.

But as luck would have it, he bumped into Ninja Physio at TruFit Killeen. Glad to find someone who thinks outside the box, Matt signed up, and within three months of following his program, he was sciatica free AND avoided hip surgery! 

Matt has been back to lifting weights, playing soccer at Gametime Indoor Soccer, skiing, and has even added competitive ballroom dancing into the mix. He also coaches several kid’s soccer teams and is happy to be able to demonstrate the soccer moves because it helps them learn it better. 

Lisa: CrossFit and running

Lisa really enjoys being active, so when her shoulder started hurting over ten years ago, it was a problem. Physical therapy helped reduce the pain, but it still hurt to do pushups and lift weight overhead. Then in 2019, her hip started hurting, too, and she had to stop running. 

She got an MRI and the doctor said that she had a labral tear and needed surgery. She stopped going to her favorite group fitness classes and tried doing her own modified workouts at her garage gym. Some friends encouraged her to try CrossFit in 2021, and she loved it, but had to modify many of the workouts since movements like squatting, snatching, pushups, dips, and running were still painful. Even getting in and out of her car and sleeping hurt. 

Lisa met Dr. Lily at CrossFit Centex and signed up for her own program. Within a few weeks, both her shoulder and hip were pain free, and instead of holding back for the rest of her life and getting a risky surgery that mostly likely wouldn’t have fixed the problem, she is now running 5Ks, 10Ks, and enjoying CrossFit more than ever!

Lou: Staying fit

Being 20 years in the Army, Lou was used to jumping out of airplanes and intense workouts. He injured his back over a decade ago, and got surgery in 2012. Three years later, the back pain was back. 

He tried multiple rounds of physical therapy, the chiropractor, massages, and injections, but none provided long term relief. He also tried cryotherapy, and it helped reduce the pain, but his left leg still felt much weaker than his right. He could hardly do calf raises or walk up stairs. 

A doctor told Lou that he had nerve damage and would need surgery to possibly fix it. Otherwise, he’d just have to live with it the rest of his life. Having exhausted his options and not wanting another surgery, Lou figured that his athletic days were over and limited his workouts to upper body lifts. 

In 2022, Lou heard about Ninja Physio through his wife and decided to give it a shot. In only a few months, he’s regained significant strength in his leg, even doing single leg box jumps!
