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 started my physical therapy program with Ben and Sarah a couple of months ago, I suffer from cervical degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and bone spurs. I was in immense pain for about 10 years and could no longer stand the pain. I could not bike ride, or do simple daily activities without a certain level of pain. Sarah and Ben improved my flexibility, mobility, and strength. I no longer feel the pain I did prior to physical therapy, they have given me the tools to apply to my daily routine and exercises that help me improve daily. I would highly recommend Superior Therapy to anyone and many thanks to Sarah and Ben!!
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 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.
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 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.
