"I will not under estimate what Physical Therapy can do for me again.”
Pamela was having trouble sitting for long periods of time. This caused her to frequently call out, and leave work early. Standing and walking also caused her quite a deal of pain. When she came to Maccio Physical Therapy, her goal was to be pain free without medication.
“Prior to coming here, I was on two different pain meds for
the hip, and still was very uncomfortable, and walking slowly. After being put
through the paces, Colin let me know it was a lower back problem. He gave me exercises
to do, and gradually the pain has stopped. My knee had also been a problem for
me – swelling and discomfort. At times, I would need cortisone shots. At this
point, I am pain free in both my knee and my back. I will not under estimate
what Physical Therapy can do for me again.” – Pamela
