My name is Tiffany Chan, I was pregnant with twins a couple years ago, and it was about 10 months after they were born where I was just standing, trying to give them a bath and five, 10 minutes in I realized that I couldn’t stand anymore and I had to sit down or lay down, and that was a common theme. So anytime I was standing or walking within five to 10 minutes at a time, I realized that I couldn’t do more than that. So my good friend who’s also my neighbor, used to come to Cornerstone for any pain that she was experiencing, so she suggested that I come to Cornerstone and check it out.
Cornerstone Health was the first clinic that I went to. I didn’t seek out any other clinics, so I didn’t really have any particular concerns. I think I just went in thinking let’s just see what they can do or what they can inform me of.
I started coming to Cornerstone February of 2018, yeah. And since then, it was about nine months into all the rehab, the physical therapy, where I was finally cleared to do some strength training. So I had a two-inch gap, so diastasis recti in between my abdominal muscles, so that was preventing me from being able to walk or stand for long periods of time. So nine months after coming here regularly, two to three times a week, I was finally able to you know, walk and stand for longer periods of time and starting in November of last year was when I began my strength training classes and so since then, I’ve begun to be able to lift weights and therefore carry both of my children, go to parks with them, run with them, do everything with them essentially and not be limited in any way.
One of my favorite things about coming here is that everyone basically treats you like family. They’re very attentive to your needs and to your concerns. They’re very good at educating you as well on what is going on with your body, why it’s happening, what you can do to correct it, and essentially they just care about you as a person, so it’s really comfortable coming in, you say hi to everybody and it really just feels like a family here.
If someone is hesitant about it, I would just tell them my experience and my story as well as a couple of other friends of mine who have come here and just to tell them to check it out and see what they can do for you.
