Neftali’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?
I waited about two months to come in because I thought the pain would go away on it’s own. My pride wouldn’t let me to admit that there was a real problem.

What was it and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
Severe back pain.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?
My back pain prevented me from completing my daily activities comfortably. I was in so much pain that I couldn’t exercise at the gym.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
Don’t procrastinate. Stop waiting. Come in to PPT. They do a great job!

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
Everyone was friendly and talkative and professional. While they were working on someone’s pain or struggle that someone is going through, the staff was easy to talk to during that entire experience.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
​​​​​​​I wanted to gain strength in my back, so that I can do my daily activities without any strain.
