Mark had experienced tendinitis throughout his lifetime, but at 49 years old, it became so severe that even small, everyday tasks at home and at work were painful. As someone who has spent over 30 years regularly lifting weights, he suddenly was unable to continue his normal exercise routine.
“I had now been out of my workout routine for three weeks and starting to get impatient and depressed.”
Mark found SPEAR through an online search and decided to try it because of the positive online reviews and how quickly he r
eceived a call back. “I made an appointment and started working with my SPEAR physical therapist. I saw some improvement right away and was optimistic.”
Mark noticed a decrease in pain but after a few weeks felt as though he might be plateauing. However, he didn’t give up.
“I started to become discouraged, but I kept coming, and I kept doing the physical therapy ‘homework’ I was given. Within a week, the pain was nearly gone, and I continued to cautiously work out, with light weight, slowly and focused on form. The week after I went back to the gym, the pain in my elbow was gone.”
Today, if Mark hears of someone who needs physical therapy he recommends SPEAR. “I can’t express how grateful to and impressed I am by the entire staff. The atmosphere is warm, they’re extremely knowledgeable, and most importantly, my pain is gone. I can’t imagine anyone working harder or caring more than everyone at SPEAR Physical Therapy.”
