Picking the Right Type of Treatment Makes All the Difference

"When I first came here I was in pain even after a cortisone shot. I didn’t know what to expect when I came here as I had physical therapy before- which didn’t help. The only thing that helped was the “shot” but this time it did not.

I’m telling you, after 3 visits I was out of pain! These guys showed me how to do moves to relieve my pain whenever I did experience pain down my arm from my neck. They literally gave me my life back.

Thank you so much! I would highly recommend this place to anyone I meet with neck and back pain."-Lori

The Power to Control Your Pain with MDT

"I have struggled with knee and ankle pain for two years. I had problems with everything from standing bending and walking. After two short weeks of continuing exercises my pain diminished. With the help of my physical therapist, my ankles now feel awesome. I never thought of how good and free they feel without the sharp and aching pain. It has been a wonderful experience being free and bouncing on my step again. Everyone was so nice here and I had a wonderful experience in this place." -Jennifer

The Importance of Looking for Directional Preference

"I’ve had a disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis (or A.S. for short) for over 40 years. It is a type of arthritis that affects the spine. It starts with pain from the lower back and progresses onward to the neck. The spine’s bones (called vertebrae) fuse together causing rigidness and stiffness. The disease usually creates additional diseases. For me, I developed Pelvic Pain Syndrome about 20 years ago. I was prescribed Elmiron and took it 3 times a day for 15 years.

Last year I was sent to Maccio Physical Therapy in Troy, NY to see if they could help with the pain. After a few minutes with Joe Maccio Jr. we started doing back bends which right away helped ease the pain and discomfort. After one year doing back bends 2-3 times a day the pain from this disease diminished by 90%. I’m so glad I came to Maccio Physical Therapy and will forever be grateful to Joe Maccio Jr." - Peter
