"When my shoulder was in excruciating pain, my primary care doctor spent 10 minutes diagnosing it, decided it was a rotator cuff inflammation, gave me a cortisol shot, and sent me on my way.  When that didn't fix it, he suggested that the next step was going to be expensive and painful shoulder surgery that would take years of therapy to heal.  Instead, Amanda worked with my chiropractor to diagnose my TOS, and develop a treatment plan with her, her staff, and a physical trainer, that had me healed in 8 months!" - S.E.
 
"Amanda tailors her massage to my needs. I have recurring problems with my back,
left hip & left knee due to flat feet. She ads rock tape to increase my ability to heal.
Great facility & staff. Fusion is an awesome place!" - J.G.
