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”.
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!
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.
“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. “
I came into Superior after having my knee surgically repaired after a football injury. I could barely bend my knee and the only activity I was doing was walking. Superior helped bring my knee back into shape and now I can do any activity I want. Therapy helped me be able to gain strength and trust back into my knee. I have experienced a 180-degree turn around from where I was in November to where I am in May today. Keith and the entire staff
made the process very personal and I could not be where I am today without them.
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.
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!
