I am happy with everything Orthopedic & Balance Therapy Specialists has done for me. My vertigo attack was very scary, but in just 3 sessions with my therapist, he has given me my confidence back to feel I wasn’t helpless. I was able to go back to my normal activities without a fear of falling down.
When I 1st started my therapy, I had a very hard time keeping my balance during assessment and therapy. After six visits I have noticed a marked difference in my balancing ability. One of the areas of vast improvement is driving for periods of more than 45 minutes. Prior to therapy, I would sometimes have to stop or arrive completely exhausted. Now I find that I can drive for the period of time without rest and arrive to my destination completely focused.
I came in with pain in my legs, knee and foot. I had a hard time moving up and down stocking shelves at work. Now I am able to move more with very little pain. My legs and knees feel much better. I can bend them without my knee giving out. I love the people who work here and how they made me feel like a new person without surgery.
Since taking physical therapy at Orthopedic & Balance Therapy Specialists my back pain has improved 95%. I can now do things that I haven’t done in 2 years. After being hit by a car while riding my bicycle I was in constant pain for almost 2 years, getting no sleep or exercise due to the physical pain. I am now back on my bike, riding a full 6 miles 2x a week and sleeping soundly through the night. This has been an awesome experience and I am forever grateful!
Before treatments I could not lie on my back on the floor to do yoga – now I can without pain. When I went grocery shopping before I would have to sit down because of back pain, now I don’t. Also I found standing in line or at the kitchen sink very hard to do (without pain) before my physical therapy treatments here. Everyone on staff is so pleasant and caring.
The dizziness has stopped. I feel stronger in the legs and I am walking better than I was before I started. My balance has improved 100% since I started therapy. I can go on walks without stumbling and I can work on my job now without having a dizzy spell.
