Patient Results:Post-Surgery

  • Many years ago I was told by my doctor after having rotator cuff surgery that I was to go for PT and that I should be under Estee Saylor’s supervision.   My experience was great and to this day I have to remember which shoulder it was that I had surgery and PT on.

    Since that time I have followed Ron and Estee for PT on my lower back, post-op knee surgery, and ankle injury.  I sincerely do not believe that I could have gotten better care anywhere– my results have returned to my “pre-problem” status.  Actually, my results have been beyond excellent.

    I truly admire Ron and Estee for their quality of care, great problem solving, and the friendliness of their of their wonderful staff.  I have been so fortunate to have been introduced to such wonderful, more than competent people. As a bonus Estee does enjoy training and I have been lucky enough to train with her.  She has had an uncanny knack for keeping my osteo-arthritis manageable.  Her deep knowledge of physical therapy has been a blessing that has allowed me to continue living a productive and highly functional life. I cannot recommend these good people enough for both physical therapy and training.

  • I first came to Estee for rehab after shoulder surgery.  She did an amazing job!  After the second shoulder surgery and subsequent rehabilitation with Estee, ( she was instrumental in finding another tear in the rotator cuff), I progressed wonderfully!  I have been a patient now for several years for various issues.  Ron took over my care once they purchased Advantage Physical Therapy and he has worked miracles!  I had neck pain from a significant multi-level cervical fusion, and after one session of dry needling, I was pain free.  Now I ‘m a patient for life!

  • Nine months after Surgery for a spinal fusion L4/L5 I was still experiencing pain that was curtailing my ability to be as active as I like to be.  My physician assistant from the neuorosurgery that I attend recommended that I make an appointment with Advantage Physical Therapy as they had previously helped many of her patients recover well from their surgeries.

    Upon meeting Ron and his staff I immediately felt very comfortable with my initial consultation and felt that with a regime of dry needling and pool therapy that I would finally feel some relief.  I am very happy to report that within a month of treatment I felt some immediate improvement and was able to increase my exercise level by at least 50 per cent without increased pain. I loved walking and gradually running on the treadmill in the pool and doing my exercises in the water along with dry needling. By three months of treatment I was pain free and had a greater range of mobility.

    I cannot begin to even express how thankful I am for the treatment that I received from Ron, Estee, and their staff. I always felt extremely comfortable asking questions and receiving great advice. One of the things about Ron and Estee that impressed me is that they truly care about their patients and if they feel someone else may be able to help them in another town or city or in a different field of therapy they make great recommendations.
    I also love the fact that you can make appointments without a referral from a Physician and they are very accommodating about fitting you in as soon as possible. To say that I am a fan of Ron, Estee and their staff would be an understatement!  I am very grateful to be able to be pain free and back to being active again!

    I have also recommended Advantage Physical Therapy to several friends and I know that they have both been extremely happy with the great level of care that they have received. It is always comforting to know that in the future that if I need further treatment that I can always call and ask a question or make an appointment and will always receive great treatment!
