"I was diagnosed with Dystonia about 5½ years ago, a few months after hip replacement surgery. Prior to my surgery, I led a very active lifestyle. I did not regain a normal walking gait following my surgery, notwithstanding lots of physical therapy. I was eventually referred to a neurologist who diagnosed my problem as Dystonia. Through my neurologist, I tried Botox and drugs and neither worked and my walking became very impaired. After years of frustration, I began working with people focused on the brain and its impact on movement, and was eventually referred to Dr. Farias. After reading Dr. Farias’ book, Limitless, I attended Dr. Farias’ workshop on foot/leg/ankle Dystonia in Toronto in early December, 2018.
I found Dr. Farias’ workshop very informative and helpful. I was extremely impressed by Dr. Farias’ and his presentation. At the beginning of the workshop, Dr. Farias stated that the goals of the workshop were to get a clear idea of what is wrong and get a clear idea of what I can do to recover function. I believe those goals were soundly achieved. The time during the workshop flew by. I learned much about Dystonia and my specific condition. I feel I now have the tools to regain my mobility. I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Farias and to have attended his workshop."
