"Over the course of 8 years, I had been to numerous chiropractors, physical therapists, pain doctors & a neurologist for back pain. I tried anything, including taking most of the anti inflammatories on the market, facet injects, nerve blocks and epidurals. All helped to some degree, but they were very temporary. Not only did I have children to raise, but competing in a 140.6 mi Ironman triathlon was on my bucket list. Finally, I was told about Edward Drangle at Ageless Health & Fitness. After a lot of hard work and diligent compliance to the program he assigned me, I became pain free! I trained with Edward for 15 months and in 2017 I completed Ironman Florida. Edward was dedicated to getting me to the start line, as was the entire staff at Ageless Health & Fitness!"
"I sought Melanie's expertise to revamp my exercise routine. Melanie obtained a health history which included rotator cuff surgery and cervical disc problems. She formulated an exercise program tailored to meet my specific needs. Melanie is very professional, extremely knowledgeable, an excellent teacher and great physical therapist."
"I've been working with Melanie for about a year, and she has made such a difference in the way I live my life. Her expertise in dealing with my scoliosis has helped relieve my back pain in such a way that it is more healing than just a temporary fix. She is the best."
