This is my third series of physical therapy sessions at TOSPT. The first two were after rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder. I have no complaints about the surgeon, no complaints about the physical therapists. The procedures simply didn't work well, and I had constant shoulder pain for approximately four years.
In February of 2012, I had total shoulder replacement surgery. After a month, I was allowed to go back to physical therapy. I chose TOSPT again and was pleased to learn that that was my surgeon's first choice of where I should go. I have not quite yet finished this session of therapy. I am delighted to have the physical therapist who has been assigned to me! I find everyone working in the gym to be friendly, helpful and patient. I still have some pain in my shoulder, but it's getting better, and I am optimistic this time. I do not think I would have made this progress without the professional and compassionate expertise of the therapists at TOSPT.
I love you folks! I love going to physical therapy! But I hope soon I won't have any need to come to TOSPT, unless it's just to drop by and say "hi."

I have difficulty putting my enthusiasm for going to physical therapy into a small amount of words. I have NO problem with describing how much better I feel since starting my personally directed exercises at TSOPT in early February.
THE PROBLEM: My lower back has hurt intermittently for my entire adult life. About 6 months ago my "hips" started bothering me so much that the pain interfered with my life. My hip specialist doctor said, "Your hips are fine, your back is the problem, let's try physical therapy." I was referred to TOSPT.
THE PHYSICAL THERAPY: The therapist's first question was, "Where does it hurt?" A good question because if it's a back problem, then why does it hurt in front? They KNEW and explained! From that day I was given exercises to strengthen and stretch the various "things" that needed it. As my weak muscles grow stronger and the tight muscles are relaxed, the prescribed movements are being changed to increase the good results. I look forward to how I will feel in another 4 weeks! My personal physical therapist is a gentle instructor, accurate in knowledge and professional in every way.
THE RESULT: After the second week, I became free of the disabling pain. Four weeks later I am able to walk vigorously for 30 minutes in the morning, accomplish my required daily tasks and do the outside gardening I enjoy with no more limping around in pain for the rest of the day! I still have a back, which is physically injured, and it still aches and my hips "twinge" after some activities I put them through. But instead of suffering through a 3-day hurt marathon of taking pain pills and wearing a back brace, I can assist my back to its new "normal" by doing my exercises! I REALLY appreciate being able to help myself.
THANK YOU, TOSPT!
