HOW PHYSICAL THERAPY CAN HELP
A Success Story: Proof Toward the Power of Physical Therapy One inspiring success story came from a 49-year-old man named Roberto. Roberto was suffering from spinal stenosis when he took a harsh fall, fracturing his shoulder. Anti- inflammatory medications weren’t an option for him, due to an additional diverticular disease, and during his physical evaluation by a pain management specialist, it was found that he was also suffering from degenerative disc disease. Due to all his health concerns, Roberto was apprehensive about receiving major surgery, so his pain management specialist referred him to a physical therapist. That was two years ago now! Roberto continues to consult with his therapist regularly and reports of radical
improvement with his back and shoulder pain: “My physical therapist, who really listens and cares, has enabled me to avoid back surgery and stop using anti-inflammatories. Instead of using medications, I have my mobility!” We’re Here to Help!
