Thank you so much for all of your help. I am totally “pain free”. I am still amazed at how quickly I was able to get some relief from my neck pain. I have been so busy that I wasn't able to follow-up, but just know that I am so pleased with the outcome. I wish you much success with your practice, continue doing what you're doing and it's guaranteed!
I was referred to Frank McCabe about a problem that I had been dealing with in the upper left side of my back for 5 years. This pain made my job as a hairstylist harder and harder to handle. I had been advised by previous physicians and chiropractors to change my profession. Frank addressed my history and came up with a strategy to deal with my problem which was a bulged disc in my neck. After one week of treatment by Frank I was pain free! He taught me to move my neck in a way that brought my disc back to a position that would not give me as much referred pain in my back. I am thankful to finally be pain free!
I just wanted to thank you again for improving the quality of my life. After going to other therapists who were unable to help me I was fortunate to have been sent to you. After only a few sessions I started to see improvement from my tennis elbow and am now symptom free. You certainly are in a league of your own. If I ever know anyone who needs a physical therapist I would not hesitate to recommend you.
I basically came to see Frank to avoid a second surgery for a ruptured L5 disc. I had no pain after my first surgery but the disc ruptured again after 7 months. I could have had a second surgery, but if there was a third recurrence I would need a fusion according to my doctor. I wanted to avoid that if at all possible. I had been doing exercises from a sciatica handbook but getting no relief. Frank taught me the correct exercises and after 12 visits my calf, ankle and buttock pain was completely gone. When I first came to Frank I could hardly walk without pain. I was wearing the brace I got after my surgery just to get through the day. Pain pills do nothing for nerve pain. A few of the exercises were uncomfortable, but as I repeated them at home at least three times a day the pain gradually disappeared. I would highly recommend physical therapy. You have to learn the CORRECT EXERCISES FOR YOUR CONDITION and Frank will guide you thought that process. He will not allow you to do anything that will increase your pain. In closing, do the exercises faithfully, be patient, and I hope you have the same success I had.
For 6 months I had experienced severe pain in the region of my right hip. I had been evaluated by a neurologist and physiatrist, an orthopedist I had had two epidurals and one nerve block in addition, I had had a course of physical therapy at a very reputable place. All of the above were to no avail. In desperation I came to McCabe & Brady Physical Therapy. Mr. McCabe diagnosed my hip problem on my first evaluation visit. He worked to alleviate my pain and then made it possible for me to ask for an x-ray. As a result, the x-ray changed my diagnosis from pre-existing back problems (scoliosis, stenosis) to a new hip replacement problem. I am having surgery in two days and will come back for some more excellent physical therapy.
Recently I had two episodes of vertigo. The first episode was treated by my doctor with medication. It took approximately one week for the condition to go away. The second episode was treated at McCabe & Brady Physical Therapy. They had me on a table and maneuvered my head and neck in various positions which cured the vertigo instantly.
