Back Pain

“I believe my posture has improved since I have had the PT. I can stand for longer periods of time and maintain good posture. The PT has also reduced the pain I have had in my back considerably. I have been able to cut down on OTC and prescription medication as a result of massage and exercises I have been given. For my shoulder, again the pain I had has been reduced considerably. The exercises I was given have helped as has the manipulation and massage.”

“When I first came to Focus Physical Therapy – I could barely walk due to severe back and sciatica pain. After doing the exercises and working with Julian, I am now on track to ensure I know the steps to prevent a reoccurrence. Thank you!”

“Focus PT helped my back pain tremendously. I could not bend backwards at all and felt radiating pain down my left leg from pretty much anything. Daniel and Julian helped release the pain and my back pain is pretty much gone. The stretches and massages helped drastically. I appreciate all the help and would definitely recommend Focus PT.”

“I came to focus during an episode of extreme lower back pain. It was so bad that I could barely get in and out of bed. I couldn’t tie my own shoes and driving a car was impossible. My entire upper body was dramatically shifted in compensation. After my very first appointment… I already started feeling relief… I made more improvement than I thought was possible. My back pain is largely gone and I have learned plenty of exercises and techniques for preventing future injury. I’m incredibly thankful that I found Focus PT and was able to get my life back.”

“When I started PT at Focus, my lower back was in pretty bad shape. Gold and retirement activities seemed to aggravate my condition which has been diagnosed as a degenerative disk. Julian started PT on me and within days I was able to function without a constant pain and it literally changed my life! My condition won’t disappear, but I can now live my life without that nagging pain which was there all the time. My experience here at Focus was an A+.
P.S. The staff is excellent too, friendly and knowledgeable! Thank you!”

Shoulder Pain

“My experience at Focus has been nothing short of magnificent. I presented with a partial tear in my left rotator cuff of my shoulder with significant disability to the point that I feared surgery would be necessary because my shoulder was essentially frozen and the pain gently impacted my daily activities. Julian worked very closely with me and gradually over a period of several months I began to experience relief from the shoulder and an increase in my range of motion. Julian and all the staff were always very positive and encouraging during my therapy sessions. Julian persevered with a combination of various types of manipulation and stretches until I was able to realize significant improvement. I am extremely grateful to Julian and the rest of the Focus staff for all their efforts. It is a blessing to no longer have to deal with the pain from my shoulder and to have my range of motion that I was without for so long. In conclusion, I want to thank Julian and the Focus staff for allowing me to return to my previous quality of life!”

“I came in for shoulder impingement and rotator cuff tendinitis. Before PT I could barely move my arm and had limited range of motion. Julian and his staff were great and got me playing tennis again in 3-4 weeks. Everyone was very knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks so much for getting me back on track. I feel better and stronger than before my injury.”

“My shoulder has been deteriorating for years. It got to the point where I was in pain 24 hours a day. I could not function – could not sleep. I had surgery June 26th with 4 different procedures. I was not allowed to move at all for 6 weeks after surgery. I did not think I would ever be normal. However, with the help of Focus team, I am happy to say I am a new woman. I have NO pain – can do push-ups, play golf, and all the things I haven’t done for years. Thank you Julian and all the rest of the team. I am forever grateful!”

Knee Pain

“I came to Focus (this time) with pain in both knees due to a fall. Shannon worked extensively with me for several weeks to improve stability in the knees with massage and exercise to strengthen the muscles around the knees. Everyone at Focus has been great to work with. I’m pretty close to “back to normal” in terms of activities I normally engage in. One of the improvements I’ve noticed is a reduction in fear of doing normal activities.”

” My biggest complain before coming to Focus PT was the stabbing, burning pain I was experiencing in both knees every time I knelt down to play on the flood with my grandson. Ming quickly recognized what was happening specific to each knee and began his work. Within a few short weeks, the pain had completely diminished. I now have exercises I can continue at home and am happy to report I am back on the floor playing with my grandson without hesitation. Thank Julia, Ming, and the wonderful staff at Focus!”

“Left knee pain while walking. Dr. Galbraith recommended therapy in lieu of surgery. I agreed with a bit of skepticism. Therapists evaluated my walking patterns and adjusted my toe out pattern. I had immediate improvement. My take away from these sessions is a conscious effort to keep my left foot straight; that and prescribed exercises has resulted in vast improvement.
My goal coming in was to walk with less pain. That has been accomplished. I’m better leaving than when I came in. Ming and Nona were excellent. Thanks to all!”

Hip Pain

“I have experience a great improvement with my goal to walk comfortably for one mile! I feel I have my life back… I know the exercises and how to maintain the best back and hip health as possible through my sessions with PT and especially with the support and knowledge I have received from Ming, my PT and the Focus PT team! Thank so very much!”

Knee Back Hip Pain

“I came to Focus for terrible neck pain and spasms. I was so worried not knowing why this was happening to me, especially since all of my reports were normal.
Julian started working on my neck after a detailed evaluation of my condition. After 2 sessions everything started to loosen up and today, after 4 weeks of physical therapy, I am completely pain and spasm free. I feel so great that I feel I have a totally new life. I am very thankful to Julian and all his wonderful, talented staff. Best place to come to put you life back on track. PAIN FREE ☺”

Neck Pain

“When I came to Focus PT I was experiencing a lot of pain on my right side – neck to knee. My hip flexors were on fire and incredibly tight. That region of my body is the most improved. Before I came to Focus, walking was difficult – I felt a lot of resistance in the hip area. Now walking is relatively pain free. What I like the most about Focus is their philosophy on movement. The exercises given are designed to strengthen forward and lateral movements. I do feel more flexible now. My therapist, Ming, truly wanted me to feel better and tried to address all my issues. “
