Knee Success Stories
I came to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC because of chronic pain in my knees due to degenerative joint disease. I had joined a gym and used a personal trainer in an attempt to improve my overall strength. Unfortunately every time I used the equipment I strained my knees or back.
The staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC taught me how to modify the exercises so I could increase strength and stamina without hurting my knees further. The educational aspect was as important to me as the actual physical therapy. I feel I can work out on my own now to keep improving.
I am writing to thank you all for your help in my recovery. About October of 2006, I had a problem with my left knee; the knee started hurting from exercise and not doing the proper exercises that I should have kept up from my physical therapy. I went to see another doctor who recommended that I have an MRI, so I did and surgery was recommended. I got another opinion from a doctor at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston who also recommended an MRI and physical therapy. I saw Jon and he helped me with simple exercises that brought my knee back to normal. The therapy was good and very helpful. The staff was excellent and I would recommend them to anyone who needs physical therapy.
Thank you for providing me with expert care and treatment for my knee injury. I will recommend this facility to anyone in need of therapy.
On December 8, 2009 I had a knee replacement. On January 18, 2010 I started therapy at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC where I found the staff highly qualified and dedicated. I had pain in the muscles at the back of the left knee and on my last visit I had very little pain. I found everyone to be very professional.
I would definitely recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone in need of therapy. I also found Cindy the secretary most accommodating. I thank you all!
The staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC was extremely friendly, accommodating and very professional. They met and exceeding all my needs and requests. They were excellent in listening to my concerns at every visit. I appreciate and truly enjoy my time here even due to it because of a torn MCL. Thank you to all of the staff.
I am very happy to write this letter with much gratitude to all the people at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. I was injured playing soccer after my surgery late in December 2009. The doctor advised me to have PT at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC.
Since then, 6 months have passed, with constant care and encouragement from the highly qualified staff. I am back to doing the things I love doing most. I highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for your physical therapy needs.
I would like to extend a personal thank you to everyone at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. Before beginning therapy, I was discouraged and my pain prevented me from walking around for more than 15 minutes at a time. With your help, I have been able to move around the whole day without discomfort. Above all, I feel encouraged that with time, patients and dedication, I will be able to resume my normal level of activity and compete in diving during my senior year of college.
I have done physical therapy at other locations, however, I have never felt as comfortable or enthusiastic about my therapy as I have at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. The staff is wonderful and truly take an interest in your well being. I particularly loved the manual therapy and stim. I will miss seeing them, thank you once again!
In June, I was injured in a fire, I am a firefighter. I tore my meniscus and had surgery in the end of June. I came to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC when I just got off crutches. They taught me exercises and worked me back to shape. The ulstrasound and stim they used along with stretches and exercises were great.
Thanks to all of you who made me feel welcome. I would recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone who asks.
My name is Kayla and at age 12 I suffered from a popping knee cap. I did gymnastics and landed wrong popping it out. I let it sit by not going to a doctor allowing swelling to build. I popped it out 4 times again after. I could not run, do sports, walk easily up and down stairs. I joined Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. The staff was really nice. They took an evaluation of my knee and immediately set me up with some exercises. Being a nerd buried in school work they adjusted the exercises and told me what the most important ones were. I really liked the bike, total gym, and the massage! Now, I am playing softball and am not using the brace to do household and school activities. They may give you lots of exercises, but do them and it will pay off!
I saw improvement with every visit, all my questions were answered to my satisfaction, very competent and friendly staff. A+ all around.
I would like to thank everyone here at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC in Shrewsbury. I arrived here in Jan. 2010 after tearing my ACL playing basketball. The staff was excellent and kept me motivated even when I was depressed because I wasn’t able to play basketball. In the beginning I was in a lot of pain, I wasn’t able to do much of anything. I am now able to bike ride, run, and do things I wasn’t able to do. I haven’t played basketball yet but hopefully I will be able to soon. I enjoyed both the manual and the physical part of physical therapy and I want to thank the staff for getting me back to where I would like to be. You ladies are the greatest, keep up the good work. You’re my friend forever, and Cindy you’re the best!
I would recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone looking for a physical therapy center to attend.
To all, the only thing that surpasses the care and treatment at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC is the staff. Kind, caring, and most important knowledgeable! They have taken the additional time to assure that I had the tools I needed to achieve success. The atmosphere is conducive to healing because of all the positive energy, from the upbeat front desk Cindy to the amazing Alicia and the leader of the pack. Thanks to all!
I wanted to thank the entire staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for their care and attention they gave during my recovery from knee surgery. The entire course of strength building exercises they put me through was more than I had expected. The improvements in stability, strength, and flexibility increased dramatically as my 14 weeks of therapy wound down. After going to several different companies in the past for my neck, elbow, ankle and 2 other knee surgeries I had, I would rank Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC as the best. Some of my recoveries would have been much faster had I been put through the some of the routines they were putting other through who had similar injuries to some of mine in the past. The exercise and stretching routine they gave me to do at home between visits brought daily improvement. It was nice to be in a facility with the positive attitudes they have and encouraging atmosphere they create.
I have Patello Femoral Syndrome and was treated at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. I am 13 years old and love the sport soccer. I play soccer in the fall, winter and spring. Prior to physical therapy for the last two years I have only been playing in the winter. When I did play soccer after every game I could barely walk especially up stairs and had extreme pain. I loved Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, everyone was so nice and did everything they could to help me. My favorite part was the manual work, and the massaging! At first it was very painful. My knee had extreme pain to the slightest tough. I am excited to play in the next session of soccer. Thank you to everyone at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for helping me.
I have been to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC 3 times in the past few years; first for migraine headaches, second for plantar fasciitis, and most recently for patella femoral syndrome. Suffice to say, I can be considered a “frequent flyer” and devoted fan of the staff in Shrewsbury. I have been given the utmost of professional therapy and exercise which has, in all cases, resulted in a much improved outcome.
The therapists, PT assistant, PT aides and secretary each go above and beyond in giving excellent treatment and services. I will miss everyone dearly and look forward to visiting when I go to world gym. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to share these thoughts.
The experience of PT has been terrific. I have more range of motion than I ever expected. The staff is exceptional. The women are exceptional in motivational skills which help to work through the discomfort and all have a great sense of humor. I would recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC above all other places. My ability to function has increased 100%.
Before I started physical therapy, my knees were a mess. The staff completely changed my outlook on how a healthy individual could be. On my first day, I could barely squat with my knees and get back up. I thought guys over six feet tall were simply doomed to struggle with bad knees. However after seeing the transformation in how my knees feel after just a few months. I now understand how in control of my own health I am. The ultrasound, massage and electric stimulation made my knees feel brand new, and the effectiveness of the exercises was beyond what I imagined and its apparent simply in how the massages feel, no more knots in my muscles. What I gained the most, was information and education. I know how to take care of my knees so that I feel as confident in the strength of my joints now at age 24 as I will at age 54. I owe the people at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC a great deal of thanks for that.
Being active in sports and exercise, I never realized how important my knee was until I got injured. From before my surgery, after surgery, and up to now, the staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC have helped me back to my original activity level. I tend to over do some activities, trying to rush my recovery. If it wasn’t for Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, I probably would’ve further injured my knee, delaying my recovery time. Thank you for your help and supports!
