Successfully managing your pain through MDT: Edward's success story

“I have been to Maccio Physical Therapy several times over the past 10 years. Each time, I have learned how to successfully manage my severe disc problem without surgery, which was originally recommended to me. I would recommend that everyone with back problems try the McKenzie Method first before considering injections, surgery or any invasive treatment. It gave me my life back.”

Breaking through the fear of falling

"I was in so much pain that I couldn't even walk. I wasn't able to sit up or do any work around the house.  My doctor recommended Maccio Physical Therapy. Thank goodness I started therapy within a couple of days and noticed the results happening. Joe and his staff worked wonders and I never would be where I am without them. Now I feel confident about going up and down the stairs without being afraid of falling. I will definitely recommend Maccio to anyone who needs therapy." -Nancy, July 2016

Lynne said no to cortisone injections, yes to PT

"I came to Maccio Physical Therapy for sciatica and back pain relief.  I had previously been to see an Orthopedic doctor, who only suggested cortisone injections, which I declined. For this recent episode of pain, I couldn't get an appointment to see an Ortopedic doctor for four weeks. I knew of the excellent reputation of Maccio Physical Therapy, so I went there. After 8 sessions, I am pain free and feel that I can do all the movements I could previously do. It feels great to be pain free thanks to the help of the therapists at Maccio PT. I will continue to do the exercises as needed to maintain my spine health. So glad I decided to come to this office for help!" -Lynne, July 2016

After four years of lower back pain and sciatica, Dan is "back to normal!"

"I started going to Maccio Physical Therapy after about four years of suffering from lower back pain and sciatic nerve issues that caused shooting pain down my leg and into my foot. I decided it was time to get help after muscle relaxers prescribed to me by multiple doctors did nothing to alleviate the issues I was having. 

After about my third or fourth visit with Amber, I noticed I was able to bend over fully and touch my toes - something I hadn't been able to do without pain in years!

I saw Amber a total of eight times and by the last visit I was pain free for the first time in a year. I now not only know how to prevent the back problems I once had, but how to correct them in the future if they ever present again. Thank you Maccio Physical Therapy and Amber for helping me get back to normal!" -Dan, June 2016
