PT Stories

This therapy helped so much. I have hip replacement and I didn’t feel well, so I came here. After 6 weeks I can see a big difference. I feel much better, thank you so much!

- Elmida A.

I have had a very good experience w/E.V. PT. Everyone has been very helpful and my pain is almost gone. I can walk better and do garden work I wasn’t previously able to do. I will highly recommend EV PT.

- Judy B.

It was difficult to stand up from a chair or to raise my feet enough to get in to or out of a car. All of those things are easier to do now. Everyone here has been very pleasant and nice to work with, and I appreciate their help.

- Roxie C.

A pinching pain in the back of my right thigh began last June or July and did not improve during the months prior to my beginning PT Nov. 7th. It slowly improved during the last 3 weeks with some ups and downs. While experiencing the improvement in my thigh, my lower back on the right side began to give me problems with piercing pain at times, lifting was particularly difficult. The back exercises from Dr. Whipples have really helped. While my back was hurting, I had difficulty with housecleaning – like vacuuming, laundry, etc. and am now able to do these activities again.

- Diane D.

When first starting my joints were extremely painful and swollen. My left shoulder, hips and knees were especially tight and painful. The people here were friendly, kind and considerate. Dr. Whipple was understanding and truly concerned. I feel so much better – it’s wonderful to be nearly pain free.

- Dianna E.

My experience has been very positive. My initial pain and discomfort has all but gone. Some activities such as long walks I can do without pain. Some sitting causes discomfort, probably bad chair, but is relived by walking and moving around. I feel I have improved greatly. Thank you all.

- Horace F.

Good progress especially the past week! The previous activities that caused me pain (extending arm forward/outward, laying on left shoulder side) aren’t a problem now! Great improvement!

- Hil G.

I am impressed with the kindness and understanding of my medical problems. The individualized physical therapy has been outstanding. When I arrived I was unable to sit for a length of time on a hard wooden chair. Driving was also difficult. Now, I can perform those and other activities I need for daily living. I am still unable to walk any distance without pain – I will be seeing the doctor in 3 days. I will be continuing the exercises if additional PT is not recommended, as “you all” have taught me several helpful exercises.

- Annabelle H.

Most of the time it was a good experience. I could hardly raise my arm at first, now I can. I am able to do a lot more with my arm now. I use it most of the time now. Everyone has been a great help. The girls are so helpful and always happy. Dr. Case is very patient with me.

- Marcia J.

I came to therapy with severe pain in my back and hands, many times unable to walk or cook/clean house without pain. Under Dr. Whipple’s direction, I began to feel better after my first visit – both physically and mentally. The care and attention of the therapists was like no other therapy I have ever had. Most of all, a daily therapy session/chat with an actual doctor was not only helpful, but made me feel “listened to” and know how to deal with my pain.

- Carol K.

This is my second time here for rehab. I’ve had a very good experience here and accomplished my goals. Doctors here have been so helpful and everyone so friendly. Thank you!

- Jeanine K.

I couldn’t turn my head without severe pain. I cried out in pain in the shower and in dressing. I have minimal pain now and my therapy has saved me. I had been to the chiropractor for six or more weeks with absolutely no relief.

- Janean L.

It was very difficult to do my housework due to pain in my right shoulder and neck. Headaches and pain almost constantly. Now I can do my normal activities without pain!! The doctor, Dr. Whipple and the entire staff are excellent and made this experience enjoyable. Thank you so much.

- Cora M.

I was having headaches and now am headache free from neck pain. No longer have neck pain. The staff was very courteous and helpful.

- April R.

My back had “discomfort” and some minor pain before my PT. Now, I seldom have any pain and discomfort only after standing for some time, or getting out of a low bench or seat. The exercises, especially in the pool, have helped very much. Great people here at EV PT.

- Richard S.

Great care and professional people. Allowed to sit more without the previous pain. Will continue exercising at home and health club. Thanks for your help!

- Steve S.

My improvement in my PT experience has been modest but progressive. The staff is positive, encouraging and constantly adapts to the ever changing needs of the patient. They listen to the patient – at least this patient – and adapt accordingly. I can’t emphasize this enough. My PT needs will most likely continue into the future given my ongoing medical issues. I wish to continue to return to this facility for ongoing future therapy and will highly recommend to others, as this need arises.

- Jean S.

I believe in my abilities more since being here. Dr. Whipple is very good, kind, understanding and also pushing when it is needed. I’m walking much more than before I came here. I’m also stronger and no longer afraid of steps and with Dr. Whipple and Dr. Case’s help I learned how to take steps. Thank you for everyone’s help and understanding.
