I was pretty unsteady when walking when I first came here. I was dizzy and falling often. The balance machine has reprogrammed me to use my muscles, weight shifts, eyes, and even my inner ear for better balance. I have not fallen since! This has been so valuable for me. Thanks OBTS!!!
When I began treatment it was difficult (to) put on a “pullover” shirt. Now there is no pain at all. It was difficult to bend my arm and raise it above my head. I can move it freely and pain free now. I had difficulty sleeping through the night. Now I can get a good night’s sleep and wake up refreshed. Before I found it difficult/painful to turn the steering wheel of my car with parking. Now it is not a problem. I have been to other treatment centers – about 5, but here I feel I really received help immediately.
Physical therapy has significantly improved my left arm and hand weakness as well as my neck stiffness and discomfort. As a professional harpist, my condition had become very stressful and difficult during my performances. Through my therapist’s explanations, I now understand my condition and how to prevent future problems. It is wonderful to be able to do such activities as driving, cooking and playing the harp. Thank you, OBTS!
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.
Physical therapy let me play volleyball to my full potential. My back doesn’t get in the way. Also, I can focus in class better because I’m not constantly in horrible pain. My back no longer gets in the way.
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.
