I would like to commend and thank the wonderful physical therapy team at Dr. Esce's office. After experiencing severe neck and shoulder pain, including numbness in the fingers of my left hand, I was diagnosed with a pinched spine from bone spurs on C1 and C2. I was given two options, one being surgery and the other being physical therapy. Being 67 years old and having had many other surgeries over the years, I opted for physical therapy.
After my first session in PT, I knew that this group was going to do all they could to help me avoid the surgery. The entire staff at PT are so dedicated to each patient that enters the doors, I could tell that on my first visit. As they were taking down my information, they greeted each patient as they entered the door calling them by name. It was very evident that the patients felt "at home" as they greeted the therapists in return.
After 6 weeks of wonderful, but sometimes a little intimidating I have to admit,visits I became so close and confident in each one of them that it was sad to have to leave them. The whole staff is so dedicated to each individual client with such understanding and patience, always with a smile as they encourage us in every way!
With, I must admit, mixed emotions, I saw Dr. Esce for that final appointment knowing that I was not going to have to have surgery. I told him that it was made possible by the PT group that had been working with me for those 6 weeks and I was so impressed with the whole staff and was really going to miss them. He just smiled and told me that if I ever needed to be checked again for my neck problem, just call and he could remedy that with a referral back to PT!
Thanks again to Dr. Esce and his entire teams of people in his office for relieving my fears of yet another surgery!!
