Before I came to PEAK Physical Therapy, I had been skeptical about the benefits of physical therapy. I used to view physical therapy as a way for doctors to hand off my care, instead of finding a solution to the underlying problem for my pain. I would be sent to a physical therapist, they would give me to their assistant, the assistant would give me exercises and after a few sessions the assistant would send me on my way.
Then I had an injury to my neck and upper back that needed extra help to heal, not just exercise and ice. A friend told me about PEAK Physical Therapy and also about the dry needling process. I decided with some skepticism, to try physical therapy again.
My experience at PEAK Physical Therapy was completely different than my previous physical therapy encounters. I learned about my injury and how the muscles that were connected to they injured muscles needed to be strengthened. Sasha, my physical therapist, had a personalized plan for my recovery and I worked with him for many sessions before I saw an assistant. The assistants were great! Sasha was always accessible for questions and concerns. The dry needling, although not pleasant, was a big part of my healing process. Sasha and his team definitely took the time to find the solution and the underlying problem for my pain.
I have been back two more times for elbow pain and each time my experience has been a positive one. Now when I go the doctor, I ask for a prescription to PEAK Physical Therapy.
