Recovery is a journey. . . . I stuck with it because I never, ever want to be in that kind of pain. I have a routine now that is part of my life.
I am a 60 year old woman . . . and I decided to overcome my shyness about the issue of pelvic pain . . . I would encourage anyone suffering from pelvic pain to try physical therapy as a possible solution to their problem.
After 12 years of working with doctors . . . I had little to no relief from my trigeminal neuralgia – nor did I have an accurate diagnosis. . . . Through education and resources available at Homer Physical Therapy, I’ve come to understand more about how my body works as a WHOLE SYSTEM . . .
Walking through the doors of Homer Physical Therapy has been one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. . . . They are efficient and able to think outside of the box, all the while keeping advice practical.
I felt that I was given the time to learn and understand what was going on with my body.
I thought the incontinence I was having was part of getting older and exacerbated by being pregnant (at age 41). . . . expertise with biofeedback and deep tissue physical therapy and the exercises she taught me that put me in control before surgery.
She teaches you how to correct your lazy habits all by yourself. What a sense of autonomy that instills
After the birth of my first child I had pain for over two years and didn’t know what to do . . . I hope that other women with similar problems will take the time to make an appointment. The wealth of information and skill available at Homer Physical Therapy is amazing!
I credit Homer Physical Therapy with keeping me in a condition where I can Alpine ski all day long, seven days a week, compete in bike races and do most anything else I desire. Hopefully they will be in my corner when I hit my 60’s and 70’s for I do not plan on giving up any of these activities without one heck of a fight!
When I was 12 years old . . . I was afflicted with polio . . . She was actually trained in a post-polio clinic and knew how to approach my problems.
It never occurred to me that physical therapy could help my trigeminal neuralgia symptoms.
I have learned how to strengthen and engage my core muscles in daily movement and to avoid injury. I have learned to focus my mind, as well as my body.
The therapeutic massages I’ve received at Homer Physical Therapy have all been a unique learning experience. The folks explain as they go along what they are attempting to accomplish with their movements, and how I can enhance those efforts at that time and in the future.
My physical therapist was instrumental in diagnosing a long-standing skeletal issue that had eluded x-rays and MRI’s for decades. She realigned my pelvis manually with a minimum amount of discomfort and taught me how to check my condition and remedy it with the stretches and exercise. I feel better than I have for years and feel in control of my recovery.
Treatment along with specific exercises and instruction how to walk correctly have let me function with less pain and given me a better life.
I have learned pacing and problem solving for addressing my chronic pain. I am able to use less medication which helps me stay more clear-headed and engaged.
I just wish my doctor had sent me here right after my complicated delivery. I suffered for months and after one appointment, I felt confident that I was going to get the help I needed to take care of myself and my baby.
(Although) I’m not a regular recipient of body work, I recently received a massage from Homer Physical Therapy’s massage therapist, Serena. I most appreciated the communication and her manner. She inquired about pressure, body position, and general comfort. A person in pain, or with an injury, or simply a highly sensitive person needs this type of caring dialogue during a massage. I also appreciated her calm “energy” throughout the experience…
“I was happy and thrilled at the results. The clinic felt like family. The exercises came at a rate that wasn’t overwhelming. You get an A+ from me.”
