Helene, age 77, NYC
I woke in the middle of the night in excruciating pain, unable to stand erect. It was scary. I saw an orthopedist, had an MRI, and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis, nerve impingement, and various low back problems. The solution: pain pills and epidural injections, which were also very scary. I had to find a better way than epidural injections every six months. I searched online for a physical therapist. Pamela Morrison Physical Therapy website attracted me as it is informative, filled with testimonials like this one and statements of the different therapies going on in the practice. I had accompanied my husband to his physical therapy sessions at another practice and his treatment consisted mostly of ice packs, heat packs, and various machines. I did not want that. When you meet Pam you know she is smart; she is listening to you and she really wants to help you. She is very hands-on, not relying on machines. If I didn’t know it was science, I would say that Pam’s hands are magic. In a 45-minute session with her she finds all the knots, all the tight and hard spots. She brings energy and relaxation to the area. She works on the body to make it healthy and strong. Each time I left I felt stronger, until now I am mostly pain free. Pam devised an exercise program specifically for me – to do at home. I follow the program and I am doing well. I have been discharged. She is an amazing physical therapist. I consider myself lucky to have found her and I absolutely recommend her to you!
