Foot and Ankle Success Stories

I have been physically active for all of my young like and have been fortunate enough to not have suffered any bad injuries. However, one day walking on uneven pavement, that all changed. The ankle injury I endured that day was enough to knock me off my feet for weeks. Thanks to the loves ladies at the Shrewsbury Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC office, I am ready to get back to being active. Their dedication and patients helped reduce the swelling, improve strength, stability, and return my ankle to a non painful state. The exercises were imperative to my recovery and I will continue them at home. The massages helped to loosen my ankle and calf so that the pain would go away. It is with much thanks that I write this note. Because of their skills and expertise I am ready to get back to what I love—dancing!

Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC has helped me recover so much. After getting a stress fracture in my foot in December, I was weary about running in the future. However, after starting at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC in January, I couldn’t wait to start running. Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me go from not being able to walk to back to my normal routine of running 4-5 miles a day for the Shrewsbury High School track team. The physical therapists were very helpful and explain the reasoning for all the exercises. They also made sure I was pushing myself but never in pain. They also taught me many stretches which I plan to use on my own so I don’t get injured in the future.

I fell down, I hurt myself, I couldn’t walk. The doctors couldn’t fix me, but Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC did. YAY, thanks Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. End of story.

The physical therapy experience I have had here at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC is the most effective I have ever had. I have had a lot of PT in the past. In a short time, grade 3 ankle sprain and broken fibula, I have improved greatly. The staff has been very professional, educational, and informative. I highly recommend this team of therapists to anyone in need of physical therapy.

Having been through physical therapy multiple times for past injuries and surgery, I can confidently say Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC was the most professional and dedicated team of therapists I have ever encountered. From the first call to Cindy, to the early morning appointment with Alicia and final session, my treatment has been first class. Thanks to the team’s effort, I have been back to playing soccer faster than expected.

I received great treatment from the Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC office when I started back in November 2010. I was not able to walk on my foot, now I have full mobility. Thank you for your help!

I have been to other physical therapy facilities not related to Greendale. I find the physical therapists at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC in Shrewsbury to be outstanding. Both therapists were knowledgeable, focused on the patient, and considerate. My plantar fasciitis improved considerably as compared to the other facility. I especially appreciate the secretary for her friendliness and attentiveness to my work schedule. Cindy was her name and she always remembered mine. Cindy was on top of the insurance demands and made my visits non stressful. I appreciate the dedicated service of the staff here in Shrewsbury and my recovery thanks to their knowledge of the problems with my physical problem. I will highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC and have already to my fellow employees and friends.

I came to physical therapy with foot and toe joint pain, it was constant. I was having trouble walking, jumping, squatting, and had a lot of pain at night when I was sleeping. Now I can do all those things without pain and my foot is stronger than before I started PT.

Thank you Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for aiding me in resuming my hobbies of tennis and skiing without pain resulting from these activities. My case is a complex one involving an old ankle fracture, diabetes, and having a physical demanding occupation and lifestyle and excess weight. When I went in to my podiatrist with sharp pain in my feet, I thought it was a combination of the onset of neuropathy from my diabetes, mediocre blood sugar control and stress on my feet from my new physical fitness regime. My podiatrist referred me to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC where a comprehensive approach included diagnosis, exercises, manual mobilization, counseling with monitoring which culminated in a significant reduction of pain while resuming and increasing my activity levels, gaining blood sugar control and regulation, and 10 lb weight loss in about a 3 month period.

Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC has been a great experience for me. They got me back on my feet and back to my normal life when I didn’t think I could. The therapists are all so helpful and are always there to motivate you. I broke my ankle and didn’t think I would be able to get back to work as an RN. They got me back in top shape t get back to work. I am very grateful for their help and compassion.

Before physical therapy I couldn’t run or jump. I had trouble with balancing and hopping on one foot. But thanks to the help of the excellent staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC I am back in action. Everything from the ice and stim, to the evaluation and the sometimes painful massages led me to a full recovery. I highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC.

I came to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC after having surgery to repair my Achilles tendon and having haglund heal shaved down. Prior to coming to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC I was partial weight bearing with crutches. Soon after beginning therapy 2 days a week, the crutches were gone and range of motion increased greatly. Now my range of motion is very good, my tolerance for being on my feet improves daily. The manual therapy and exercises have helped with my recovery. I will continue with the exercises so my recovery continues and soon I will be running again.

When I started my physical therapy here, I was in a lot of pain and couldn’t get around without a cane. I had very little motion of my foot and ankle. I had been in a cash/wheelchair for over 6 months and my muscles were very weak. The staff here helped me very much with exercises, massage, and therapy. Now I am walking a mile every day, doing laps in the pool, among other activities I was unable to do at all. I have regained most of the strength in my foot and leg muscles, and my range of motion has greatly improved. The staff have all been very caring and helpful in my recovery.

Over the years I have been to many different physical therapists. I found that here at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC they are very attentive to your problems. They are very knowledgeable in their treatment program. They are one on one and making sure you have proper form has been great. I came in with heel pain and could not stand for a length of time. During that time I therapy, I also had ankle pain, which they treated as well. Due to their help, I am now pain free. Thanks.

Prior to the start of my course of therapy at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, I experienced stiffness and pain due to a ruptured Achilles tendon which was surgically repaired resulting in neurological involvement and scar tissue. The staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC was wonderful from m intake assessment through my discharge assessment. The PT’s, PTA’s and assistants were caring and knowledgeable. The Receptionist always greeted me by name and with a smile. I always received exercises to do at home. These exercises were always explained well and accompanied by printouts. The staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC are very qualified individuals who are dedicated to the improvement of their clients’ well being. I thank you for your help.

It was a great experience here at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. I came here with foot pain. With the massages, exercises and stim therapy- the pain subsided 95%. The therapist Tarah is excellent. The whole staff is extremely friendly. It was an enjoyable experience.

I sprained my ankle badly and it wasn’t getting any better on my own. Through the exercises and help of the friendly staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, I have improved greatly and am back to the same activity level as before my sprain. I highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC.

Right ankle was painful upon exercises and is much improved after four sessions. I enjoyed the leg and foot massage. I learned the value of daily exercises to maintain improvement. The staff is personal, friendly, courteous and professional.

For an athlete such as myself, a serious injury liked my fibula fracture can turn your life upside down. When I started at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC my spirits were low and I had a hard time believing that I would gain all of my strength and agility back. However, the therapists at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC were able to help me overcome this injury and regain my athleticism. I was excited to see the gains I was making with every appointment and looked forward to my weekly chat with the therapists. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It is obvious that they are dedicated to improving lives by giving each and every patient a warm touch and a kind smile. Within six short months, they helped me progress from walking with crutches and a bad limp to running and jumping with confidence. When my soccer team wins our next championship, ill have to give the credit to the team at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. Thank you to everyone for your support and dedication, I couldn’t have done it without you!

I’ve had an amazing improvement with my knee and ankle during dance, thanks to this therapy! I don’t think that I would have improved if I didn’t do at least a few of my exercises from therapy, every day at home. I was always challenged, but I worked hard because I knew that the exercises would get harder as I improve. This would mean that each time I get a harder exercise, my therapists see me improving which overall is the goal that you want as an outcome of going to physical therapy. I trusted that my therapist knows what is best for me and I never argued. That is how I was successful in improving my problems with physical therapy!

I would like to thank you for assisting me through my recovery process. This past summer I dislocated my foot, tearing the ligaments and tendons that connect my foot and ankle. When I started PT in November I had just been given the ok to week bear with crutches and a brace. I visited PT 2 times a week at first. Cindy and Josh at the front desk always welcomed me with a smile. They assisted me with changing appointment and did so with enthusiasm in their job. I will especially miss Cindy who went out of her way to make me feel important. As for the treatment, both PT’s Tara and Alicia were encouraging and knowledgeable.

They explained why they were giving me the exercise and what the expected timeline for my recovery was. They each also worked on my ankle with manipulation and massage. Well that leaves Deb, she is the PTA that pushed me only far as I could go and added humor and a personal touch to each and every visit.

Today, two months after starting with them I am jogging over 3 miles and spent last weekend snowmobiling. I would sum up this team as caring and professional.

Coming to PT every week helped my ankle and hip very much. Before PT I couldn’t do very much in dance and my hip and ankle were sore. Now after dance it doesn’t hurt at all. If it does, I know my exercises to help it. I enjoyed the foam roller for my hip. I feel like the therapists here become close to everyone they work with. They got to know my favorite color.
