A friend referred me to Teresa for treatment of my upper back pain. I had tried virtually everything, including physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage for many years before starting treatment with Teresa. But my pain was just getting worse, and eventually it became so bad that I started taking time off from work every single week. Because of limited success with all my previous treatments I did not have high hopes for my work with Teresa. But I was proven wrong. At my first appointment Teresa explained to me what she thought were the causes of my pain. Her explanation was clear and logical – I am a scientist, and I was glad to see that my physical therapist uses a scientific approach. We started working together, and within a short period of time (4-5 weeks) I no longer experienced pain at rest. It took longer to resolve pain triggered by activity, but we were able to get to that point through carefully chosen exercises that I performed at work (while sitting in a chair) and at home. The entire treatment was well structured and practical and I came out of it with an understanding how to take care of my body and prevent recurrences of pain.
