    I started at Superior Physical Therapy 90 days after spinal fusion surgery, L-4 and L-5. I had been in a back brace since the surgery and this was my second back surgery after having surgery 2 years prior.I didn’t know what to expect. Prior I kept active, golfing, running, biking, water skiing,downhill skiing, and cross country skiing. I have been amazed at my progress! I had been through lots of P.T at other places, Superior was completely different. Each visit felt like finding the target to where I was weakest and working at that point.

    When I came to Superior, I was close to the end of my options. I had gone to a chiropractor, traditional PT, and had an MRI—and went to a neurologist who told me I had carpal tunnel and
    needed surgery. My arm was going numb at night and I insisted my shoulder was involved. So I gave physical therapy another shot with Superior because my neurologist liked their methods.
    From the first appointment, I knew this was different. Movement was involved. This works from the first basic stretch I was given for “homework”.

    When I started physical therapy, I had severe right leg pain from my hip to my ankle. I was sure PT was not going to help me. But after one week of coming to Superior Physical Therapy my thinking totally changed! My pain was subsiding and my attitude about PT had changed. Sarah and Aaron were great and kept me on track here and with my home exercise program. I could not feel better!! Great people here, and I can finally say I am pain free!

  • Brittany Lautner

    My experience here has been amazing! I have suffered from migraines and headaches for years and for the first time in months, I have gone weeks without taking medication! I have also experienced lower back pain for the past four years. Not being able to lift laundry or even my own young children. With the help of Drew, Aaron, and Noah I can now do all of that and more! They were so unbelievably helpful. I am so thankful for their patience and at home stretching ideas! Thank you so much guys for fixing me!

  • Cheryl Thompson

    When I first came, I had extreme pain in my left hip down to my left heel. There were many things I could not do or had too much pain to participate in. Walking, bending, and standing for long times was very difficult.Brittany worked with me and each week my pain lessened. She introduced me to many exercises that totally helped my pain level. I can now do almost everything that I would do without pain. Thanks to Brittany and Superior Physical Therapy!

  • Audra Bildeaux

    I landed at Superior Physical Therapy after being diagnosed with a misaligned pelvis. The pain in my hip and pelvis would be extreme, preventing me from enjoying running. I would with Aaron and instantly I could tell it was going to be a positive experience. Aaron was extremely knowledgeable and was able to align my hips/pelvis at every visit. The home exercises provided via video were invaluable with my at home treatment. Though there is still work to be done, I can now get out and run, and will be completing in the Bayshore 10K, a feat not possible before Aaron and PT.

    I was in a car accident in 2013 and received a whiplash and a fractured sternum, which resulted in chest and back pain, headaches and some breathing issues.  I already had some issues with arthritis and of course, this interrupted my life… and my sleep.  I came to the October 2015 Low Back Pain Workshop after having been on a short vacation to Myrtle Beach, where it had been painful to sit, walk, lie down, tie my shoes.. And I needed help getting in and out of the car.

    I came to Sarah at Superior Physical Therapy a mess. She taught me so many new ways to move and stretch. I think of myself as pretty savvy when it comes to movement as I am a dancer, practice yoga and Pilates, former runner, and a good swimmer. I have a new and varied repertoire of stretches, core strengtheners, and overall strength exercises to compliment my activities and continue doing all the things I want to do.
