We are so grateful to work in such a rewarding specialty, and we love helping people get back to their peak physical function. However, sometimes we never get to hear about all the successes of our former patients because they no longer need our assistance and are on to bigger and better things. And while that’s great, we really love when our former patients reconnect on Facebook or Google and let us know what they’re up to and how we were able to help them reach their goals.
With that in mind, with Thanksgiving approaching, we’ve decided to feature some of our favorite patient success stories on the blog. And if you’re thankful for how your physical therapist was able to help you achieve your dreams, please consider leaving a review on any of our social channels!
Showing A Little Thanks This Year
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and here’s a look at some of the patients that we’re thankful to have worked with over the years. And please consider sharing your story with us on Facebook or our Google page!
“Such a well-run clinic – I will be back, but hopefully not anytime soon :-). My therapist, Rebecca, was so smart, personable, and down to earth. Her ability to understand my issues and explain them to me in a way that I could understand really put my mind at ease. I’m feeling great and have returned to all of my activities that I love to do just in time for summer!” ~ M.L.
My physical therapist Lu (Lois) changed my life! I was experiencing chronic pain after having babies and no one knew what to do about it. After an intensive internet search, I found Lu. I saw her for visceral therapy on my abdomen. She found my pain points and has given me so much relief! She also found painful areas on my sacrum and spine that I didn’t even know existed. She fixed the root of my problems and I can now do pilates, walk, bike, swim, play with my kids and do all the things I could do before! I’m so thankful for her knowledge and ability to heal! ~ S.J.
“I am so grateful for orthorehab specialists! The therapists are wonderful in not only treating your injuries but working with you to prevent future injuries. I have been here for both ankles and my knee. They have saved my active lifestyle. Highly recommend for your physical therapy needs!” ~ L.N.
“I have been a patient of Orthorehab Specialists for more than 5 years, across a range of injuries that I have sustained as a competitive dancer. I have worked with a handful of therapists, but more so on a dedicated basis with Andy Massis, who simply put, is exceptional. Andy has tons of passion around his work, and a depth of experience that is astounding…my latest injury was a combo of a plantar plate issue, along with a bunion, which had literally put me into a limp (of course no training) for months. I went to Andy and he quickly put me on a plan – it has been nuanced and evolving each week or two weeks – and I am now back training at an 8 out of 10 about 8 weeks later. My dance is such a huge part of my life and being able to get back at it has been huge…tons of kudos and respect to Andy and crew!!” ~ M.H.
“Matt and Samantha at Ortho Rehab transformed me in record time! I entered as a hobbling gimpy person who couldn’t straighten her very weak left leg. I just “graduated” and can now fully pursue a wide variety of recreational activities that had become so difficult. Both were knowledgeable and yet personable. They listened well and tailored the program to my specific needs.” ~ M.S.
“After an MRI, my rheumatologist gave me 2 choices to alleviate the severe pain and limited motion of my shoulder: Total joint replacement or PT. My choice was obvious. He insisted I visit THIS clinic because “they have better outcomes.” When I walked in, I’m greeted with a smile by glowing Brittany who helped me with billing and insurance needs with such ease. I was blown away with Terry’s knowledge, skill, and ability to educate. There’s a peace about him that told me I was in good hands and I believed him when he said, “nothing should hurt.” Terry’s assistant is Ani, a free spirit. She made it fun to learn what I needed to know in order to heal, making it a personal experience. Nothing hurt. After my first visit (seriously) I walked tall through the parking lot on Cloud Nine, because my shoulder was already better!!! I couldn’t be happier or more amazed at the results of my therapy. I suffered needlessly for 2 years without treatment expecting it to go away. Now ‘off to the garden!” ~ N.P.
“The OrthoRehab Specialists Staff at the Edina, MN office are all phenomenal. They treat you with the utmost care and provide great treatment. Due to certain circumstances I was able to pull my appointments forward a month and boy was that the right choice. In just two visits Dr. Masis and his team have me back in great condition and learning how to not return to a poor physical state. Thank you ORTHOREHAB SPECIALISTS!” ~ R.W.
