Make PT Happen“My name is Molly, I am 22 years old and I have lived in pain every day since high school. I have three protruding disks in my thoracic spine due to sports. I received three cortisone shots in each disk, but it only helped for a day or two, and medication barely helps at all. I felt I had nowhere to turn other than trying to do surgery and I couldn’t do that. So I let the pain take over my life. Driving was painful. Sitting, standing and walking was painful. I had trouble getting to sleep, and I couldn’t do anything fun I used to be able to do, like go out, or go to the gym. It got to the point where I could not take it any longer. I did some online searching and found Active Physical Therapy, which offered dry needling as well as Physical Therapy. I was hesitant at first because nothing before had helped me. But, after a few treatments I was already feeling better. I can sit, stand and walk for long periods of time and I am able to fall asleep without any pain. I can hang out with my friends and family without pain, and have returned to the gym. There is still progress to be made, but I would never be where I am without physical therapy.” –Patient, Molly
