Igor and Irina:
A good thing for me to have met you both!
Charles’ personality is well known in the Boston area, because he was of one of the best DJs in the country and a prominent TV personality in the 1970's, 1980's, and 1990's. Many people listened to his WBCN morning show. He developed severe pain in his lower back; it was so bad that it jeopardized his work on the radio and TV. Through his radio program he asked the public to recommend him a “Miracle Man.” Somebody called him and gave Igor’s name. Charles had to lie down on a futon in the back of his wife’s car while she was driving him to see Igor for the first time. Igor developed a program for Charles. It included simple exercises (how to lay down, how to sit, how to stand, how to walk, how to turn, how to go up and down the stairs, etc...) focusing on reducing impact to his joints. Igor was teaching Charles how to move painlessly. Charles started practicing this routine in the water (to decompress the body) and on land. At the beginning Charles was skeptical. Once Charles’ pain began to diminish and he saw steady progress, he became more confident in the Burdenko Method. He was surprised how simple exercises can reduce pain significantly. In less than a year, he participated in a fundraising event – a 10K run in downtown Boston. His friends, listeners, and colleagues congratulated him. He was back in the "game!" From that point on, Charles talked very often about the Burdenko Method. He wanted to share his experience in order to help the public. Even today, Charles continues to implement his water and land programs every day to maintain his great shape physically, spiritually, and to lead a productive life.
