They are why I want to pursue a career in medicine

I have both a leader and an issue that has inspired me deeply as to why I want to get involved in the medical field. Two years ago, I was playing football for New Rochelle. It was the last play of the game and I was sent out for a pass play.  I ran to the end zone and jumped for the ball while one of the cornerbacks attempted to swipe the ball from me.  He ended up landing on top of me while I landed on my shoulder on the ground.  From there I got an MRI for the injury and the orthopedist didn’t find anything wrong when reading the disc.  I then transferred from New Rochelle High School to Mamaroneck High School where I continued my wrestling career.  I would experience very sharp pains occasionally while wrestling. I’m tough so I didn’t think much of it and thought it would just go away.  Till early January when I was wrestling at a tournament , I couldn’t continue wrestling in a match because of how much pain I was in.  My coaches, family, and I knew there was something very wrong.

I got another MRI and my orthopedist found out that I had torn my labrum.  I had gotten surgery a couple weeks later and was sent to Professional Physical Therapy in Equinox in Mamaroneck.  My Physical Therapist’s name is Melanie.  She was very sweet and kind when she would tell me what to do and she was very gentle when she would massage my shoulder.  Watching her work and help others while I was doing my therapy was amazing.  Watching the elderly become so content because of the amazing work she would do with them, helping them get their strength back to where they lacked. I love to help. I’m very respectful, kind, patient and genuine. I love to make others happy and joyful and watching her make others feel that made me want to become a physical therapist.  Two years later after the surgery and physical therapy I’ve become one of the most successful wrestlers in Mamaroneck wrestling history.  I’m the third person ever to be a section champion for Mamaroneck.  I accomplished that a couple weeks ago and last year I was the first All-Section sophomore. I wouldn’t be able to have done these accomplishments if it weren’t for Dr. Delamora, my orthopedist or my physical therapist, Melanie.  They are one of the inspirations as to why I want to pursue a career in medicine.

She is back skating and is pain free

Olivia is a 15 year old freshman at Masconomet High School in Boxford, MA and has been a competitive figure skater for 10 years. In the past year she suffered some minor injuries and experienced intermittent knee, hip, and ankle pain. Upon recommendations from her own pediatrician and an orthopedic sports medicine specialist, she underwent physical therapy treatment with Keith Cooper at Professional Physical Therapy in Beverly. Following these sessions and a structured treatment program over a number of weeks, she is back skating and is pain free and performing all her jumps and moves on the ice. Keith and his team developed a personalized plan that was tailored to Olivia’s needs and helped her recover and get back to her usual self in a very short time. They also recommended a program for off-ice training that has been a tremendous benefit to Olivia as she continues to develop her skating skills. We can’t thank Keith and his team enough for all they did and highly recommend anyone who requires physical therapy treatments to visit Keith and the group at Professional.

The staff at Professional Physical Therapy has changed our lives

I came to Professional Physical Therapy, a bit skeptical and a little hesitant. Having endured years of seeing my child in pain and having underwent the physical therapy route without success, it was a hard to commit again. My experience started with a phone fishing expedition, culminating with a thorough conversation that ended my search. I had made the decision to entrust my daughter to the expertise of Alex and his team.

My daughter’s first session came and I had bombarded Jennifer with questions, while making my presence known to Alex; I involved both therapists in my scrutiny. With patience I was addressed and I was reassured with a plan. Although anxious, I walked away knowing that my daughter would be in good hands.

In a couple visits, Jennifer and Alex proved to be miracle workers. After two years of constant leg numbness, PT made a difference! Within a month, my daughter is almost at 100%. I finally saw PT to be a cure. The therapists at PPT listened and analyzed my daughter’s story, they deciphered a plan to make recovery a reality.

I cannot thank Jennifer and Alex enough for their dedication and expertise. The staff at Professional Physical Therapy has changed our lives.

Watching her made me want to become a physical therapist

I am very fortunate that I have such strong support with my recovery

I have had the pleasure to work closely with LJ and Hedel after Shoulder surgery and Hip surgery.

They are so professional, kind, caring and compassionate. They are the dynamic duo 🙂

I enjoy going to PT. They always greet me with a smile and put me to work.  If I am in pain during the day I can stop in and grab ice any time.

I know people never have any problems writing emails when it is a complaint.I believe it is important to acknowledging people who go above and beyond at all times; that’s why I wanted to take some time and write this email.

LJ is amazing, he is patient and filled with knowledge. I am very fortunate that I have such strong support with my recovery.

It was one of the most incredible and special moments of my life

I am happy to report that the race went great! I barely had any IT Band issues at all for the entire race, which was incredible. I owe a major debt of gratitude to you and the team for helping me get to where that was not a factor in the race.

I did face some other obstacles, as anybody would expect. For example, knowing that my friends and family were all waiting for me on First Avenue, I got a little excited going over the bridge and pushed a little too hard on the uphill part, as well as the uphill of First Ave. I ended up with some cramping in my quads and hammies. A few stops at the medical tent for a quick rub down and some biofreeze was able to remedy that for a few miles at a time. That made the last 6-8 miles tough, but they were going to be tough no matter what!

I didn’t run with my wife, but as luck would have it I spotted her around the mile 26 marker. We were able to cross the finish line hand in hand, and it was one of the most incredible and special moments of my life.

Again, can’t thank you guys enough for all the help over the last three months in getting me ready, not just with the IT band but with the overall strategy and the tips for training and for running the race. I look forward to thanking you guys in person next Tuesday!

Wonders do happen

I had a very extensive knee revision and replacement on my injured knee. My first knee replacement, I was up and in a few days. This surgery was a nightmare of recovery from August to October. Non-weight bearing, wheelchair and locked knee in a brace. October 1st, I got the ok for Physical Therapy. Professional Physical Therapy was recommended by my Doctor. I choose the East 84 Street location. I was taken there by wheelchair. I was greeted by the front desk, I felt relief. I had an evaluation with the clinical director, Audrey. A program was created for me, and I had three sessions per week. I also committed to the home program. This was all very intense for me, after being so idle. The therapists follow in Audrey’s steps. Empathy and positive encouragement were the greatest. Alyssa became one of the key therapists in my recovery. Whenever I visited, Audrey promised me she would get me out of the wheelchair. They helped me and by Thanksgiving Day, I was walking with a cane. I never gave up only because of their confidence in my recovery. I am also in PT for a torn rotator cuff. I know I am seeing a huge improvement. I wanted to and I do walk about two miles almost everyday. The TLC and empathy to all the patients is remarkable. Doctors are great and lay the foundation. The physical therapy is the main part of recovery. I am so very grateful to the team at the East 84 Street location. I must add that Audrey speaks to the staff in such a professional manner. The atmosphere is positive.  I wish anyone who chooses Professional Physical Therapy a speedy recovery!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was able to run the entire race without having to stop

I was dealing with chronic IT Band tightness and friction that caused intermittent knee pain for over a year. The pain was manageable for most of 2018 until I completed my 19-mile training run, five weeks prior to the NYC marathon. From that point on, the inflammation and associated pain sidelined me from continuing to run; I had only completed three taper runs in total in the last five weeks leading up to race day. I tried many various interventions in the past, but with a combined approach of dry needling therapy, rehab exercises, and other manual therapy techniques, Noah got me back on my feet and helped me cross the finish line at the 2018 NYC marathon with a 4:06 finish. I was just shy of my time goal, but happy to even finish considering the knee injury. I was able to run the entire race without having to stop at any medical tents along the way too. Thanks Noah and Professional PT!!

I couldn’t have picked a better place

After fracturing my patella, I needed some local PT and I chose Professional (formerly ProEx). I couldn’t have had a better experience. Tina worked out a treatment plan for me, explaining everything – showing clear knowledge of the bones, muscles, tendons, etc. She and Roger and the others were wonderful to me, even the receptionists. They made me feel comfortable and very confident in their ability to help me, which they did, and quickly. They were all right on top of my injury and what it took to get me back up and running very quickly. I guess there’s no better testimonial than the shock of my surgeon when he saw me and saw how well I was doing. To everything he asked if I was able to do yet, I replied “yes” and really he was so pleasantly surprised he asked for some business cards so he could refer others to Professional (formerly ProEx). I will miss the friendly and professional staff… they made it fun.. they worked together.. there was camaraderie.. If I had to go to PT, I couldn’t have picked a better place. Thanks to all of you.

No surgery needed!

I can only say great things about my rehab at this location. My doctor told me to try PT for a few months and if that does not work then I was looking at surgery. I worked with the amazing Jonathan and his wonderful team for about 12 weeks and went from not being able to use my right arm and being in major pain to now being pain free and my right arm is now back to 100 percent. No surgery needed…even my Doctor was impressed! Jonathan and his team really work with you and explain everything to you, I was never rushed and always had someone watching and helping me do my exercises. Everyone is very patient, caring and highly educated in their field. If you are serious about getting the best PT this is the place to come.

Delightful, helpful, and very encouraging

Rachel, Terri, Ken, Justin are delightful, helpful, and very encouraging each time I visited at Professional Physical Therapy. The environment here is friendly. Lastly, Sasha is wonderful, knowledgeable, and outstanding. Praise be to God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. To the entire staff, thank you so very much!

What a life altering experience

It’s unreal to think that today was the last day of my first clinical rotation at Professional PT in my pursuit of attaining my Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). What a life altering experience. To the amazing physical therapists and athletic trainers I worked with up in Mamaroneck – thank you all SO much for being such fantastic role models. I’m proud to have worked and learned alongside you. And to the many patients I was able to work with – thank you for being so sincere and hard working. Blessed is an understatement for being offered this amazing opportunity.

Strong at work

Joel and Ian at Tyngsboro Ma. gave me the tools to Succeed at work. I believe that continuing my PT while I was back at work made me so much stronger and they were able to give me exercise that help me thru the areas that I was weak. These guys gave me quality of work life thanks for everything.

Nothing but praise for her ability and knowledge

I have been seeing Nicole for three different reasons in the last 2 years, I have nothing but praise for her ability and knowledge, she is conscientious and informative. She not only Treats but she cares. What else could you ask for in a physical therapist?

Jim M.

My entire experience has been nothing but positive

I had had my rotator cuff repaired last November and was ready to start PT a month later. My initial plan was to start the therapy at Equinox and then transition into the city where I work. However, after starting the therapy with Melanie, I didn’t want to go anywhere else. She is intelligent, knowledgeable, and nice. I was confident immediately that she was providing excellent care of my shoulder, and my surgeon has been extremely satisfied with my results. My entire experience these last 3 months has been nothing but positive – even when Melanie was away, the other therapists (Katie, Rebecca, JulieAnn) knew me and were able to step in and provide the same high level of care and professionalism in a friendly environment. I recommend this group without hesitation.

It was one of the best decisions I made

I decided to go to Professional Physical Therapy for convenience because it was across the street from my office and knew it would be easy to go during my lunch break. Little did I know, it was one of the best decisions I made. Sarah was my physical therapist and Peter was my athletic trainer. I went in with a rotator cuff tear and bursitis in my right shoulder, which caused severe pain from certain movements, and especially after working out, and after 8 weeks of working with Sarah and Peter, I am happy to say I do not have any pain. Sarah did a great job working on my shoulder and was very gentle and openly communicated everything she was doing. Pete gave me great exercises and stretches to help me get the strength back in my shoulder to get back to fully functioning in the gym. I would recommend them to anyone, everyone was always so friendly and willing to help with anything. It was a great environment and I would definitely go back for another injury, but hopefully I don’t have to. 🙂

I was able to challenge myself

I could not see myself where I am today when I 1st entered Professional PT. The Hartsdale team is strong and supportive everyone from the front desk to the therapist and aides. Mansi is awesome knows when to push you and when you need nurturing to get thru your session. With her dedication and knowledge I was able to challenge myself and push thru the harder days. Returning to the field seemed like a long shot, but though it may take time I know there are more snaps in my future…. Thanks PPT!

This is PT at its best!

I came to PT 3 weeks post op. My therapists Ellen and Ildiko have helped me to regain my my strength and maintain a positive attitude even when I felt down with a wonderful therapy plan that continues to be updated based upon my progress. This is PT at its best! Words of encouragement, smiles and positive affirmations helped my progress even faster than I had hoped for. Everyone there is wonderful, Margaret, Timothy, Charles always lending a helping hand as well as the wonderful gals who great you upon entering with a big smile. Totally recommend this place. They have helped me so on my road to recovery!

Carol Lee S.

Patient and positive

I just wanted to thank your entire staff, especially Christine, for making my recovery from shoulder surgery a success. Even though I thought the progress was slow, you all helped me to keep my hopes high and never give up. Everyone was patient and positive. I hope the recovery from my back injury goes just as well.  Thanks again for everything!

These people are truly PHENOMENAL

I had 3 ankle surgeries. I was in PT for 2 Years before discovering Professional Physical Therapy @ 1250 Waters Pl. 12th Floor (Bronx Hutchinson Metro Center).

I will always remember the first day, July 12, 2017. Vivek calls me to come in and begin his evaluation on me. As I became more and more familiar with the other staff – Louis, Nick, Africa –  they were always professional, encouraging, helpful in whatever manner they could be. These people are truly PHENOMENAL. I highly recommend them. They’re also striving with you to see the results. It is Oct 2017…the progress that I have made is simply phenomenal. The staff honestly cares about their clients and it shows in their dedication and compassion and commitment. Vivek…you’re absolutely the BEST. Louis…thank you for all the times I said I couldn’t and you insisted that I could. ANETA…you’re an angel and you know your stuff. Love you guys. God Bless all of the Staff @ 1250 Waters Pl. 12th floor staff.. You’re a phenomenal team.
