Pain Free After 10 years!

I had back pain on and off for about 10 years, with a sudden severe pain one morning in December 2019. I took a couple medications to help control the inflammation and relax the muscles, but the side effects made me stop taking the medications.  At my primary doctor’s referral, I came to seek physical therapy at Maccio Physical Therapy.  In the first week I felt much better following Dr. Maccio’s instructions and in two weeks I had a lot of improvement, feeling 80% back to normal.  In the third week, I went to ski twice in a week without feeling any pain in my back.  It does make me feel assured that I can always come back for help if I have any back problems again, and to avoid taking medications. – Jimmy

Constructing the Pain Away

In the summer of 2019 I injured my back constructing at Stone Wall. I tried working with a chiropractor for almost half a year and was not getting better. I had trouble getting in and out of my car, couldn’t sit on anything but hard wooden chairs, and could no longer run. I also had trouble sleeping because of the pain. Within several of weeks of starting physical therapy, I started getting my range of motion back and the pain went away. Within a month the remaining pain I had sleeping went away. Sticking with the stretching plan paid off and has helped me recover almost all of my range of motion.

Knee Pain No More!

I had been suffering with knee pain and lack of mobility and extension before coming into see Joe.  I have had great success with some other issues in the past with Maccio Physical Therapy and was hopeful and confident Joe could help me with this issue.  After an assessment of what was wrong with the front of my knee, I was started on a series of exercises that have eliminated the pain in the front of my knee.  I am able to fully extend my knee now and all the other activities I enjoy I never thought I would be able to fully regain the use and flexibility. I would recommend Joe and Maccio Physical Therapy to anyone.  – William
