When I came to start therapy I was having aching, and burning pain frequently in my lower back, and numbness in my foot, which made it very difficult to walk. This impacted on my ability to get exercise and enjoy time with my dog on daily walks. It was also hard to stand and sometimes to sit without experiencing pain. I was starting to rely on taking Alleve in high doses and thought I would just have to get used to it. I am pleasantly surprised that the problem has resolved! I only occasionally feel pain or numbness when I've done some heavy lifting or cleaning and this goes away quickly. All this despite the degeneration/osteoarthritis in my spine. I also feel much stronger in general. Thanks Zac (my PT) and all at Cioffredi!
My experience with Cioffredi and Associates was outstanding.
The three PTs that worked with me before and after my shoulder surgery were all excellent.
Kate, who worked with me to stretch and strengthen my shoulder prior to surgery, was friendly, and knowledgeable. She was particularly adept at explaining the root causes to my shoulder issues and the path she was prescribing to help remedy them. The results that were achieved from our sessions were great. The pain and shoulder tightness I had experienced prior to our visits were significantly reduced, so much so that I even considered cancelling my surgery. Her work allowed me to continue with sports and everyday life until I ultimately decided to proceed with the procedure and it could be fit into my schedule.
Becca and Amanda worked with me through the rehabilitation process post-surgery. Each of them was friendly, funny, personable, knowledgeable and encouraging. Because of them, I truly looked forward to each visit, without exception.
The results they helped provide are better than I expected. I am pain free and have recovered nearly all my shoulder strength. I’m confident that my strength will recover 100% (or more) with the exercises and techniques they have shown me. I am also confident that without their guidance, my healing would have traveled a longer, circuitous path to a less desirable end-result.
A side note:
Amanda had just started on her 11 or 12 week clinical assignment as I started therapy, post-surgery. Initially, Becca did most of the "heavy lifting" of defining and executing my rehabilitation. It was interesting for me to watch Amanda as she gradually took more responsibility and transitioned from a quiet observer into the “leader” during the latter weeks of my sessions. I’m certain that Amanda’s training, combined with her exceptional personality and professional manners, will be the foundation she will build on to achieve any personal and professional goals she sets. I wish her the absolute best as she moves on to complete her studies, begins her next assignment and ultimately her career.
Lastly, I appreciated Becca’s nomination and Cindy’s invite to participate as a judge in Cioffredi’s annual pie baking contest. It was a fun event that made me feel like I was “part of the family” rather than just a “regular” client.
Thanks so much to all.
I had bilateral knee replacements 7 months ago. While I had a much better than average recovery experience, I was still having some pain sitting cross-legged and leg strength was still an issue. Anna evaluated me and gave me easy to follow exercises to do at home as well as in therapy. After 6 weeks of physical therapy, I have gained increased strength that is quite noticeable. The pain in my IT band has decreased with use of the foam roller. I now have the tools and the information to continue my year long recovery from my surgery.
This was a wonderful experience! Personal interactions were excellent, always encouraging and building on successes. Lots of humor in our sessions. This helped greatly. Free of judgement and fixed expectations. I felt I was free to do what I could during each session.
Thanks to Becca & Amanda for their patience and expertise AND gentle persistence. I feel I have my leg back and frankly, didn't expect this as an outcome.
With much gratitude & appreciation to you both.
I had the good fortune to work under the very knowledgeable eye of Richie. My specific health issues made the normal training regiment a little more difficult to navigate. Richie was keenly sensitive to my limitations and totally supported and encouraged my efforts. His professionalism and friendly nature made coming in for each session enjoyable. Armed with the materials and instruction Richie provided, I now feel there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I would also like to thank Billy for the moral support and attentive ear, it was all very assuring and positive. Thanks Billy, Richie, the fantastic ladies up front, and the rest of the friendly, professional staff at Cioffredi's.
