“My body deals with a lot of aches and pains over the course of a 162 game season. Using the DMS Stimulator on a regular basis speeds up my recovery time and helps with the flexibility and mobility I need to perform at the highest level. DMS gives me the comfort of knowing that my body will feel refreshed even after a long day at the ballpark or a tough workout in the gym.”

“As a former NFL Pro and active lifestyle today, Dr. Rumel is the best, not only for me, but my wife and children.”
“I have used Graston Technique for many years. I find it to be one of the best solutions for helping to recovery from injuries. Graston breaks up scar tissue and strips the muscles helping them to recovery. I recommend Graston to anyone looking for faster recovery”
