    I was very stiff and not flexible in my mid-back and hips. I feel normal and flexible again. Very happy with the treatment. I truly believe in applied functional science for physical therapy. Can’t thank you enough Alex!

    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”.

    I heard about SPT back in June 2017 from a friend who still goes there for knee pain. My lousy insurance didn’t cover PT but I called and made an appointment any way. I’d had left hip pain for three months and had tried chiropractic, massage, new shoes with no success. It was painful to stand for more than ten minutes and walking was getting difficult too. After my first visit with Sarah, the hip pain disappeared and we started to focus on strengthening my right ankle which was weak and now I am back to walking a mile on the TART trail again.

    After lifting a wooden canoe over my head I severely hurt my shoulder, I realized I needed help. I knew I should come to Superior after attending exercise classes. I couldn’t exercise, wasn’t sleeping well, and my quality of life was going down the
    tubes. Enter Dr. Nathaniel Wittenbach (with help from Dr. Nick) and Superior’s unique and successful method of helping the WHOLE patient. Nathaniel walked with me through a three-month process of healing my shoulder.

    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 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!

    When I first came to Superior I was experiencing sciatic nerve pain which ran all the way down my leg, in addition to severe pain across my entire lower back. After seeing my doctor I was diagnosed with sciatic nerve pain, a bulging disc, scoliosis, stenosis and nodes on my spinal cord. I could not move my hop to my right side without severe pain and I could not sleep for more than two hours at a time. I was close to giving up
    any idea of returning to my previously active lifestyle of dancing, daily aerobic dance exercising, walking three to five miles per day and doing extensive travelling.

    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.
