Initially, I was invited to a clinic presentation in August to a group of individuals who were in pain with limited mobility. Following the presentation a free assessment and a personal plan was developed that dealt with my condition. In choosing to become a Madden client, treated for a disabling lower back pain, and also complicated with a severe arthritis condition, Madden PT provided me with a skilled team of knowledgeable, friendly and compassionate staff members. A physical therapy team is assigned to each patient and you work with the same team for every visit utilizing all hands-on treatments. Sessions were scheduled three times per week; the goal of my program was just completed satisfactorily in a nine week period. Not only was the treatment plan geared to my lower-back condition, it also included the personalized attention to the improvement of my overall health and fitness! These exercises have been developed to allow the discharged patient to continue on their own at home. A special thank you to Madden PT and my team: Dr. Andrew and his assistants, Ryan and Heather.
