"Life is good"...
A serious fall years ago left me with back pain that continued to diminish my quality of life. My wife of 47 years finally convinced me to seek help from Maccio Physical Therapy, where she had been a patient before. My first visit was amazing...after answering Joe’s questions and following his instructions, the years of agony were disappearing quickly. At first I was afraid my relief would be short-lived, but I was wrong.
Fear of surgery kept me from looking for treatment, not realizing my physical restrictions had crept up on me over the years, rendering my activity to just about nothing. Over these years I’ve missed out on so much…my grandson’s football, basketball and wrestling events, treasure hunting with a metal detector or having a motorcycle were ideas of the past. Now, since my initial visit, my daily activity has returned and my confidence is increasing with every move. It’s been so long, you kind of forget how to walk…but now, “life is good”!
The exercises both during and after treatment are easy, with results that keep me sticking with it. My association with the Maccio clinic was 31 days, from coming in just about cripple to walking out pain free, and Joe sent me on my way like he had little to do with my incredible results. My expectation was an embarrassment after witnessing what the staff, the McKenzie Method and especially Joe have done for me. Thank you all! -Gerald
