From Opioid Addiction, To Healthy Pain Managment: Sean's Success Story

“My first day going to PT was like most days where my motivation, mood and overall outlook on life was affected by the amount of pain I was experiencing in my lower back and jaw. Both areas had been injured in my past and the only way I knew of to help me with the pain was through the use of opioids. 

Painkillers, heroin and other narcotics became an issue that has plagued my life on and off for the last 10 years. This addiction was often triggered during relapse because of the amount of pain I was dealing with throughout the day. I didn’t think there was anything that could help with the pain or the addiction. I felt trapped, helpless and doomed to live a life of misery and pain. I eventually sought help to treat the addiction and held out hope that I could find a way to manage my pain in a healthy way. 

When I talked to my doctor at Upstate Medical in Troy, NY, she said that she could refer me to the best physical therapy treatment center in New York. I was skeptical at first because I thought this was something that all doctors say when they refer you somewhere, but after a few weeks with my physical therapist, I knew that I found the right place. 

I felt welcomed by the staff on my first day and explained my situation to my therapist, who was very understanding of what I was going through in my recovery. The approach was very simple and after a few movements of my back and neck, My therapist recommended the exercises that would help me make a full recovery from the scapegoat that played a major role during my active addition. 

Maccio Physical Therapy has made a great difference in my life today and for that I am extremely grateful. I would recommend anyone who is suffering through the same circumstances that put me through years of active addiction to give this team a chance to improve your quality of life.“
