"Time does not matter with MDT"
I have suffered with neck pain and migraines since an auto accident in 1992. I’ve had chiropractic treatments and other physical therapy. Joe Maccio is the only doctor that truly helped me. With a few exercises I am basically pain free and have movement in my neck again. I no longer have pain that interferes with everyday life. I highly recommend Maccio PT to anyone dealing with pain every day. Thank you!
"Why We Always Check The Spine"
I came to Maccio Physical Therapy after having debilitating knee pain for 3 months straight. Worried that it might be a meniscus tear due to recent tendon injuries, I saw an orthopedic doctor who completely dismissed me as soon as he saw me, claiming it was a result of slight bow leggedness due to being female.
Disheartened by this experience and determined to get better, I met Joe Jr and his team the following week. Joe was very respectful and listened to me intently as I described my symptoms. Since my pain came and went randomly, they suggested the problem wasn’t with my knees but instead with my spine. After just four or five visits my pain started to go away. I was amazed at the results and so happy Maccio Physical Therapy could help me. I’m happy to be pain free and back to my regular activities!
Another Self Taught Success Story x2
Due to the success of my lower back, when I encountered neck pain, I knew right where to go. Again, slowly but surely, with the exercises, my neck pain began to subside. This is one special place! I have maintenance routines to keep me going – I would be one big lump of pain without Maccio Physical Therapy.

MDT: The other option for pain relief!
When I first went to physical therapy at Maccio Physical Therapy, I was very doubtful that physical therapy alone was going to be able to help my pain. I was in excruciating pain to where I could not work, sleep or function. My neck, cervical spine and left arm were causing me to have severe, constant pain to where there was no comfortable position. I was given steroid medication, medication for nerve pain and then narcotic pain medication so that I could sleep, and none of it seemed to help. I also went to pain management, where the next step would be epidural injection if physical therapy did not help. Thankfully, my physical therapy with Lindsay Carlton was successful to where I could work and carry on in my life without extreme pain, and I regained strength in my hand that I was worried I would not do. I would highly recommend Lindsay and Maccio Physical Therapy to anyone!
