Check back soon to see the nice things our patients have to say about us.
My recent PT experience has been uniquely positive.. directing me to activities designed to return function.
20 Years ago I accidentally severed the bundle of dorsal tendons on my right ankle. The tendons to the small toes were never reattached but I continued running, tennis, and other activities but began to have difficulty on my right side. My knee became a problem as my entire gait was wrong. My dropped right foot changed my gait increasingly to the point that even normal walking was a challenge. I had done PT a few times but therapists were treating the symptoms without a proper diagnosis. It wasn’t until I began seeing Susan Pender that I understood how problems with my foot, hip, knee, and back were all related. I got to the point where I was avoiding even simple activities like going to a restaurant or even a short walk. My recent PT experience has been uniquely positive. Instead of simply doing the same exercises and activities, the therapist was observing my motions and directing me to activities designed to return function. A wholistic approach was used to help me realize that my entire skeleton is a system and when one part isn’t working right the others don’t either. I even had sensory problems with my right hand that I suspect may relate back to my gait. I’ve noticed more feeling in my hand as I begin to walk properly. Before therapy I thought my problem was the need for a knee replacement. I’ve learned that even with my bone on bone knee, proper walking posture and the constant use of a brace has allowed me to resume many activities that I had foregone.
I am impressed with the professional care and steady improvement in all activities
I would recommend AIPS for anyone who has need of physical training. Together we have met our goals!
My experience with AIPS has been a surprising opportunity for me on a daily basis to make me feel more confident with daily activities.
My knee pain has decreased and I am able to enjoy moving, going up stairs, and walking.
Physical Therapy has helped me. The most important thing is that I am more comfortable walking, feel stronger, and am sure of myself.
I have been able to get around much better in the house and can do things without holding on as much.
