Puyallup (Meridian Physical Therapy)

“ I came to Meridian Physical Therapy with a shoulder injury diagnosis of muscle strain and frozen shoulder.  I was unable to lift with my left arm and had a very small range of motion without experiencing pain.  My range of motion is almost back to original and it will take time to regain full strength, but my strength is much improved.  I would not hesitate to recommend my doctor and Meridian Physical Therapy to anyone who has similar injury or medical need. ”

“It took me about five years to finally admit that I needed to do something about my hip pain and lack of mobility. I finally went to a surgeon who told me I needed my hips replaced, but first I needed to strengthen my muscles surrounding the hips and lose weight. He prescribed physical and nutrition therapy. After the first visit, I was given a few easy exercises to do on my bed, and I was immediately impressed at how how big of a difference it made! I could move better and some movement (like a pivoting) stopped hurting so much. I got great information from the nutritionist and I started to lose weight. I knew that being in the water made exercise a lot easier and less painful, so I asked to start there. I was soon stronger, and I felt so much better; the rewards for my work were so great. The staff was so supportive and encouraging. My first hip surgery is coming up and thanks to Maya, my physical therapist, and Margret, my nutritionist, I am ready. Pounds lighter and much stronger. These guys improved the quality of my life so much, and I am grateful for that.”

“I came to the desert with severe pain in my buttoxks.  I had back surgery a year ago and a device was placed in my back.  I had no hope of success but went through with the therapy anyway. Lo and behold, I have little to no pain left!  Thank you Gino, Jessica and Barbara.”

“ I started physical therapy in mid June, following ACL repair and a partial knee replacement surgery on my left knee is in late may.  Travis and Scott educated me in the fact that it was not going to happen overnight, I needed to be patient, ACL rehab takes longer than knee, so it was going to be a challenge.  We would need to push hard to get my muscles stronger and my knee in good shape, but always being careful of my ACL.  They were helpful and patient with me as scar tissue pain gave me trouble at times and knew different treatment to help me through that.  Also taught me the way I walked, taking bigger strides would help with some of the pain I was having.  They always explained where I was and what to expect next, and "Yes" it would stop hurting soon, which it did!! I always looked forward to going to PT even though thats all I did all summer.  Thank you for helping me feel like me again.  I am back at work and so happy. ”

“When I began feeling pain in my hip and upper leg, I hobbled around for several weeks waiting for things to get better... My wife urged me to seek a referral for physical therapy, which I later asked my doctor to provide... It wasn't more than four weeks at physical therapy before I began to feel real relief. I was able to stand without experiencing pain after only a few minutes and have been returning to my regular activities after months of dealing with being incapacitated by my pain. I thank the team at Lake Sammamish PT for their terrific help and look forward to hiking again this spring.”

“Over the past couple of years, my shoulder had been getting worse and worse. I kept asking my doctor for a referral - he would tell me I didn't need it and show me some stretches to do. But it kept getting worse. Finally - after realizing how many activities of daily life I couldn't do, like gardening and housecleaning, I took matters into my own hands. I couldn't even sleep without taking ibuprofen to prevent the sharp pain that i'd get just rolling onto my "bad" side. I called my insurance company and found out that I didn't need a doctor's referral. I already knew Andrea through business networking. It was close to my home and office, so i just did it! Even after the first treatment, my shoulder felt a little better. At every visit, Andrea would test my range of motion before and after her muscle-loosening treatments. She'd query me about any pain that I might be feeling, and then showed me strengthening exercises - starting with very mild movements, and then as the weeks went on to more strenuous exercises. She patiently showed me small modifications to make each exercise work for maximum benefit. It took a few weeks, but my shoulder gradually improved. My garden is great, now that I don't have to figure out in advance how long I can work in it without hurting myself! I still do the exercises about five days a week, just to keep everything in good working order. But if something happens, I know I can go back, and that she will show me what needs to change. Thanks, Andrea!”
