I had a lateral release surgery done 2 years ago to correct an alignment issue in my knee, and started working with Don 6 months later. He is now an integral part of my care team. Within a few months of working together last year I saw amazing results, and while the rehab process is ongoing he continues to challenge and encourage me. He's also been really good at dealing with other health issues that have complicated my recovery, and always has a plan to keep us on track.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

“At 73, after a bout with cancer and chemo, I felt very weak. My solution was Janaye Dzikewich at Medical Exercise Trainers. Janaye evaluated me and developed a program to correct my deficits. Janaye, who has a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology and is a certified Medical Exercise Specialist, helped me to build up my strength, balance and endurance. This experience has been a life-changer; I enjoy walking again, and feel more like I used to. I look forward to my twice-weekly sessions withthe always encouraging and supportive Janaye. I highly recommend her and Medical Exercise Trainers.”
