I have been a regular patient of Lino's for 15 years. Playing for the Sacramento Monarchs in the WNBA, traveling all over the world with USA Basketball, and weekly transcontinental trips for my television duties, he has kept me in one piece. The ability to recover from the pounding my body takes on a daily basis is critical to my productivity. I know that Lino can fix anything and that gives me a lot of confidence. I also know he will tell me the truth always about when I need to back off or change my form in a particular area. His advice and methods have been as valuable to me in my professional career as any I've come across. Thank you Lino!
I came to Lino at the suggestion of Justin Lau (YAY, Justin!!!) because I was beyond what Justin could help me with and Lino is his trainer. I came in July 2018. I was a mess. I had had a 'routine' gallbladder removal in 2013. Immediately after that surgery I was in intense pain. All core, in the right rib cage. I went to every doctor, had every test, and was even told it was in my head. I sought help on and off for over 4 plus years but to no avail. I was reduced to using a wheelchair if I wanted to walk anywhere beyond 100 yards. I could not do regular routine things around my home. Our life as a family was turned upside down. I chose not to take pain medication because I did not want to become an addict, and quite frankly, there was nothing to ease the pain as it was. Not even Advil. Nothing. I suffered, and suffered. It was awful. Finally, I decided to give sports medicine type doctors a try. I found Justin and went to him a few times and he found that I was indeed a mess. He then referred me to Lino. The minute I walked in Kinections Lino told me he knew exactly what was wrong with me! What????? Stanford couldn't figure it out. UCDavis couldn't figure it out. No meds worked. How did he know?????!!!! All he did was tell me to get on the table. He knew. Boy did he know. He pulled, pushed and every other thing that he does to work out the problem. If you have been to his office, you would know that my screams were added to the others in there. It's painful to have the treatment, but the results are amazing. I went twice in that week of July 15. On July 20, 2018 I was HEALED. I kissed that wheelchair goodbye. No more brace. No more long hours in my bed with a heating pad. I could get my life back!!!! I am forever grateful Lino. Truly.
