"I am Back to Normal"

“I came to Maccio Physical Therapy with pain in my thumb and wrist, bad enough to interfere with my job, my leisure activities, and even my sleep.  After a few visits, there was a huge improvement thanks to the exercises I was given.  I am happy to say that as of today I am back to normal – I can use a mouse, hold a video game controller, and go for a bike ride without pain.  I couldn’t be happier with the results and will absolutely return should I ever need to in the future.” – Derek

"Telehealth Worked For Me"

Is Online Teaching Right for Me?
"I contacted Joseph Maccio about two weeks ago, in mid-April due to significant lower back pain due to a wrong movement in my back, some extended construction work that required bending, and intense virtual teaching that required long periods of sitting, I was having pain in my lower back that made it difficult to sit, stand and even lay down. I wasn’t sure how to deal with it as nothing seemed to feel right. Due to Covid-19 I hesitated to go to the doctor and tried to find videos online that gave advice, when I realized some things helped while others made things worse. I have gone to Maccio in the past and realized they might be doing telehealth and can recommend the correct treatment. 
In the telehealth sessions we analyzed the movements I was having trouble with and when they got better and worse, and found the correct course of action. In less than a week I saw a drastic improvement, and now I think I am back to almost full function. I highly recommend Maccio and find that the Tele-Medicine worked very well for me, especially under the unique circumstances we are in."

"Without Maccio PT I Wouldn't Be Where I am Today"

"As a teenager and avid athlete, stress on muscles and injuries occur. Over the summer I hurt my knee and was in some considerable pain. Multiple doctors and treatments were not helping decrease the pain. Upon getting the suggestion to attend physical therapy, I decided to give Maccio Physical Therapy a try. Immediately, my injury was assessed in a whole new way. They not only looked at increasing my knee movement but also other factors that had not been examined before. With the help of the physical therapy team I was able to find exercises that took my pain away. Not only my knees but my back, neck, and entire body movements increased. Being able to gradually find ways to stop the pain was eye-opening. I had not been without some type of pain for several months. I have now been able to return to physical activity such as running and basketball without experiencing pain. Without the help of Maccio Physical Therapy I would not be where I am today and would still be seeking alternative treatments as the pain would still exist." - Matthew
