When I first came to Maccio PT I was in a great deal of pain. My primary care physician, Dr. Jeff Ryan referred me to Maccio PT and indicated that I had a herniated disc. My pain level was initially 8-9-10 at the worst. Joe Jr. first helped me to understand what had happened and gave me exercises that immediately started to help begin the healing process. I had been prescribed muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory by my primary physician, however I chose not to use them because of the initial relief that I felt from the exercise that Joe recommended. I continued with PT appointments and gradually healed from the injury. Joe’s professionalism, positive feedback, and consistent reassurance contributed to a positive outcome. I’m back to jogging and have started biking as part of my ongoing health maintenance. - Gretchen N.
