“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 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.
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!
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.
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!
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 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”.
