Driving & Chronic Pain

Garry is 52 year old Beverage Chemical Manager at US Foods. He was on the road driving 4,000 miles a month, often struggling to get out of his car from the pain. His doctor recently told him he would eventually need a double knee replacement. The pain started 30 years ago when he had a serious motorcycle accident, tearing 3 of the 4 ligaments in his knee. After the accident, he developed chronic knee pain.

Reaching Goals with 1-on-1 Coaching

Garry refused to let his pain limit his lifestyle. He started the Hinge Health program offered through US Foods, and set a goal with his health coach: being able to jump across rocks while fishing without worrying about pain or injury. Within two weeks, he felt a difference in the way he walked and the pain he felt. Garry is now back to hiking long distances and rock climbing like he used to over 30 years ago.
