We feel fortunate to have received reflections from our patients on how Brewer Physical Therapy has helped them. Here are some of our favorites:
"Prior to my therapy sessions, I had limited range of motion (rotational) in my neck. This resulted from a vehicle accident that occurred many years ago. This limited mobility came with dull, constant, nagging pain. After completing my treatment, I am now able to turn my head more easily, and the pain is significantly less than before. I also learned how to correct the issue with exercises and about things that may aggravate my problem. I appreciate the kindness and positive environment provided to me at Brewer Physical Therapy. My thanks to Adam and the staff for the success of my treatment." -John E.
"The treatment and care I received was very good. I am very satisfied with the results I got from my treatments. I went from a pain level that was 8 – 9 to a 2 – 0. I believe I can now put off back surgery for quite a few years or maybe never have to get it done. Thanks again for the excellent service I received from everyone at Brewer." ~ Margaret C.
"During my time at Brewer Physical Therapy, I learned and performed many exercises and stretches to ease/manage my hip and back pain. All the staff is knowledgeable and thorough in their approaches." ~ Heather W.

"I started having trouble with my shoulder/left arm about 4 months ago, and my doctor recommended Brewer Physical Therapy. I was treated for 2 months, and the therapy was a great success. The entire staff are very uplifting, positive, and so enjoyable to work with! I would recommend this physical therapy clinic to anyone!" ~ Celeste E.
"I have a history of migraines. My women's health nurse practitioner recommended dry needling and referred me here. This has been the best relief for my migraines in years. The staff is very knowledgeable and just a delight to work with. My pain level has decreased from 8/10 to 0/10, and I have only had 1 major migraine compared to having 2-3 a month. Thanks." ~ Rhonda H.

"Prior to treatment at Brewer PT, I had significant pelvic pain. This pain kept me from truly enjoying daily activities. After treatment, I found relief and am able to enjoy so many things in my day.

After eight weeks, the pain is next to completely gone. I will be back for sure in the future! The team and staff are wonderful! I'm sad my therapy is complete because I will truly miss my weekly visits. Thanks guys! :)" ~ Courtney Y.

"My physical therapy experience at Brewer Physical Therapy following my total knee replacement has been a positive one from my first appointment. Everyone from the office personnel to the therapist was very helpful and always encouraging. Even the unpleasant parts of my therapy were made better by someone sitting and talking me through it to keep my mind off of the discomfort. Thank you for being upbeat and always greeting me with a smile when I walked in. Should I ever need physical therapy again, I will choose Brewer PT." ~ Judy W.
"When I first started physical therapy, I had very little movement in my hip. I now have full range of motion and no pain. Everyone here is incredible. I felt very comfortable here, and everyone is so nice. They really take the time to get to know you, and I am very thankful for that. My last day was bittersweet. I am thankful for all of the help in making me better, but I will miss all of the wonderful people I have met here. Thank you to everyone at Brewer Physical Therapy, you are amazing!" ~ Sherri G.

I came to Brewer Physical Therapy after spine fusion surgery. When I first walked into the clinic, I had a very difficult (almost impossible) time performing basic household tasks. Adam and Amanda met with me and decided on a plan to make my recovery as easy as possible. I started coming two times a week. The staff at the clinic have become like a second family to me. They’re very down-to-earth and dedicated to getting you better. You can tell they actually care about their patients instead of just treating their work like an assembly line as I’ve experienced in other clinics. Even though it hurts sometimes, I look forward to my weekly visits. When I first started going, I walked into the clinic to meet with physical therapists and techs. Now, I walk in to see my friends and extended family...oh, and to do exercises to help my back! Highly recommend!” ~ Kris S.

LATEST PHYSICAL THERAPY RESEARCH
Is physical therapy (PT) better than steroid injections? A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that patients with knee osteoarthritis treated with PT experienced less pain and better physical function after one year than patients who received steroid injections. These findings suggest the benefits of PT for knee osteoarthritis may be more long-lasting than earlier believed.
