Patients and clients I have had the opportunity to work with have said some things...
Patient with neck pain
"You've already done more for me this first visit than anyone else has." Further stating he had been dealing with this for decades.
Patient with back pain
I thought I was going to live with back pain for the rest of my life. You gave me the tools to help myself when I start to notice any sign of back pain!
"...I wanted to let you know how much you guys helped me. No back pain in forever!!!!"
Patient with foot pain
"I am able to run again without my feet hurting. It kept getting worse util I started PT."
Patient with ankle fracture
She didn't want to miss her soccer tournament. With PT she was able to achieve the increased muscle and ankle stability required to be cleared to return to sports in time for her tournament.
Patient after shoulder replacement
"Breathe and relax" turned out to be a tip that helped me after shoulder surgery and on the golf course! If you listen and do what they say, you will get better. They know their stuff.
Patient after hip replacement
"I didn't know if I'd ever be able to get on and off the ground, and with PT I am able to get on and off the floor."
Commonly we hear things such as:
- I felt she was really listening and cared.
- I didn't realize PT would help.
- Knowledgeable and helpful
- highly educated and care about their patients wellbeing
- Attentive, provides personal instructions, and caring
- PT isn't always easy because you are in pain, but they make it a lot better.
- Friendly and encouraging!
- ...they gave me hope.
- I leave feeling I have done something.
- I am more confident
- I feel empowered
