PHYSICAL THERAPY - DRY NEEDLING AND AAPT’s POINT RESET™ METHOD
Updated: Aug 8
Master Chef, Professional Wrestler, musician and a super dad, Myk Diaz was struggling— physically and mentally.
“I could barely eat and I struggled with basic living.” With severe neck, LBP, and jaw pain. He was not able to swallow without problems and suffered heartburn and migraines.
After months of no relief having several healthcare visits, Myk’s pain remained unchanged. He was at the point where his pain was limiting not only his work but also his ability to do basic activities of daily living.
We sat down with Myk to talk about the road he took to find physical therapy, Point Reset™, and the importance of feeling healthy.
WHAT BROUGHT YOU INTO AAPT?
I once wrestled professionally and I still feel some of those head and neck injuries. My family is very active and having children ages 8, 6 and 3, I decided to take action to address the pain with Athletic Advantage Physical Therapy and get my life back.
WHAT MADE YOU REACH OUT TO AAPT SPECIFICALLY?
This past year was really tough for me. My jaw and throat just quit working. I was hospitalized not able to chew food, when I did eat I had heartburn, migraine, sinus problems and neck pain. I gained 60 lbs due to stress and not being able to workout with all the pain I was experiencing.
A doctor suggested physical therapy and dry needling for relief. I took that as a sign, I did my local research and set up my appointment.
