Praise for UPRISE

 

Dr. Dan LorenzDr. Dan LorenzSports and orthopedic physical therapy authority Dr. Dan Lorenz is a respected clinician, educator and published numerous times in peer-reviewed journals.

Elite athletes from the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, WNBA and other professional and collegiate sports turn to Dr. Lorenz as their provider of choice. In addition, he has worked at institutions such as the U.S. Olympic Training Center, and consults with professional sports clients such as National Football League teams on "return to play" criteria.

Dr. Lorenz has this to say about UPRISE: Back Pain Liberation, by Tuning Your Body Guitar, the new book by sports medicine and back pain authority Dr. Sean Wheeler

"The ideal treatment for low back pain has evaded health care providers for decades. We see countless approaches proposed to treat chronic back pain with little to no success. As medical professionals, it is our responsibility to make the complexities of pathology simple for our patients to understand the hows and whys of their condition, and what must be done to address it.

In UPRISE, Dr. Sean Wheeler boldly offers a refreshing perspective on the causes and ultimately the true cure for modern low back pain.

With an easy-to-read discussion of this complex condition, and an even easier to understand approach, the Body Guitar, Dr. Wheeler's book will help people maximize pain relief and function by a committed approach to changing habits, including the 'tuning' of your individual Body Guitar."

Building on earlier praise for UPRISE from experts such as the alpha doc to professional athletes Dr. James Andrews, the Architect of the Greatest Turnaround in College Football History in Hall of Fame Coach Bill Snyder, and award-winning Television Writer and Producer Lynne Litt, as well as literary praise from critics such as Publisher's WeeklyUPRISE adds a powerful new understanding to the true cause of modern low back pain.

UPRISE is available at Amazon.com, providers globally, and select book stores.

Shelley Lewis PTShelley L. Lewis, MS, PT Shelley L. Lewis, P.T., is a Director of Physical Therapy, overseeing a staff of 16 physical therapists at four outpatient clinics in greater Kansas City. Early in life Lewis realized how much she loved the study of human anatomy, physiology and kinesiology, a love later pointing to her career. 

With over two decades of experience in treating patients with pain, Lewis has this to say about sports medicine and back pain expert Dr. Sean Wheeler, and Dr. Wheeler's soon-to-be-published book, UPRISE:

In UPRISE, Dr. Sean Wheeler changes the way we look at back pain and musculoskeletal pain. As physical therapists, there has never been "one way" to treat back pain, but often we traditionally focused on 4-6 weeks of stretches, strengthening, and modalities. Instead, Dr. Wheeler focuses on incorporating long-term stabilization into functional activities and sport.

As a result, the diagnosis has changed, the prognosis has changed, even the vocabulary we use with our patients has changed. For example, we now speak of Bracing Muscles in need of Circulation Training. There is no more "core".

This refreshing physical therapy-centered model relies not only upon sports medicine and pain management doctors, but encourages collaboration with other healthcare professionals to offer the patient a period of pain relief, which then allows us to begin the stabilization—or Circulation Training—process. UPRISE offers a fundamental shift in the mind-set of treating back pain sure to impress and influence patients, medical providers, and healthcare insurance carriers worldwide.

Lewis received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology—Exercise Science from the University of Nebraska, and was awarded her Masters of Science degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Kansas Medical Center School of Professions. 

Building on earlier praise for UPRISE from experts such as the alpha doc to professional athletes Dr. James Andrews, Hall of Fame Coach Bill Snyder, credited as Architect of the Greatest Turnaround in College Football History, award-winning Television Writer and Producer Lynne Litt, and Dr. Marc Valley, who advocates that the healthcare industry — from medical insurance providers to doctors themselves — become familiar with its teachings, UPRISE will soon add a powerful new understanding to the medical treatment of chronic back pain.

Kansas State University Coach Bill SnyderKansas State University Coach Bill Snyder With the College Football Playoff complete and the 2015 National Championship game now entered into sports history, another significant story emerged during the week's run-up to the Championship Game, centered on Kansas State University Head Football Coach Bill Snyder, now Hall of Fame Coach Bill Snyder.

Snyder, selected for the National Football Foundation's College Football Hall of Fame Induction Class of 2015, is credited as The Architect of the Greatest Turnaround in College Football History, demonstrated in this video presentation prepared by the Kansas State University Athletics Department.

As another Hall of Fame football coach, Barry Switzer, once stated about Bill Snyder: 

"He's not the coach of the year, he's not the coach of the decade, he's the coach of the century."

With a meticulous approach to his craft and his 16 goals for success, Coach Snyder continues to impact the lives of his student-athletes and so many more.

Here's what newly inducted Hall of Fame Coach Bill Snyder says about Dr. Sean Wheeler, and Dr. Wheeler's soon to be published book UPRISE:

“Coaching Sean as a student-athlete in our football program at Kansas State University allowed me great insight into his capabilities. This very precise, well-written, and passionate book, written for the benefit of others, does not surprise me. UPRISE is meaningful and eye opening.”

Now with Coach Snyder's insights, building on earlier praise for UPRISE from experts such as the alpha doc to professional athletes Dr. James Andrews, award-winning Television Writer and Producer Lynne Litt, and Dr. Marc Valley, who advocates that the healthcare industry — from medical insurance providers to doctors themselves — become familiar with its teachings, UPRISE will soon add a powerful new understanding to the medical treatment of chronic back pain.

Dr. Valley says this in advance of the publishing of UPRISE, a new book by sports medicine and back pain expert Dr. Sean Wheeler: 

"UPRISE is a wonderful book. Filling an important void in patient education options, it focuses patients on ownership of their condition as well as offering a firm basis for self-directed rehabilitation. I also recommend this book for the practitioner who coordinates patient care as well as insurance caseworkers. UPRISE is an important addition for anyone interested in pain management."

Dr. Valley received his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the University of California, and was awarded his medical degree from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California. He is a member of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the International Spinal Injection Society,  and the International Neuromodulation Society
