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.
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.
My sincerest appreciation for the excellent physical therapy I received during my visits. When I first arrived, I had pain on the right side of my neck, and range of motion was severely limited. I am now pain free and range of motion is back to normal again. Brittany Prior was my therapist and I found her to be very knowledgeable and professional during my sessions. She was also caring and enjoyable to work with.
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 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 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.
“When I first came to Superior PT, I had very little mobility and pain with anything overhead or lying on my right side. After working with the 2 Andrew’s I can sleep on my right side, reach overhead without pain and most importantly…look through an entire upper rack of clothing without burning pain! It was definitely worth the drive to Traverse City from Lake Leelanau twice a week. I’ll miss seeing you! Drew! P.S. Drew made coming in fun! His big smile and cheerful attitude made me almost forget I was working hard. “
Having dealt with back problems for many years, I am no stranger to physical therapy, yet what I encountered at Superior was unique in my experience. Scheduling was easy, and many of the exercises were tailored to my situation rather than simply going through “standard” procedures.Above and beyond just focusing on the problem at hand, what I learned will help me keep my back on the “straight and narrow”, so to speak. The entire staff was great to work with, but a special shout out to Ben and Brooke(with a tip of the hat to Adam).
