I was suffering from back pain that had started from an injury about 10 years prior and had gotten bad over the years but I had a significant flare up after running regularly to train for a race. I sought help from a doctor who initially wanted to give me an injection and provide pain and anti-inflammatory meds with no treatment plan in sight. I asked the doctor for a physical therapy referral as I was seeking initial treatment that avoided meds and surgery. I began seeing a chiropractor for a few weeks which provided some initial relief but didn't seem to last. I then began seeing a physical therapist at a large well-known facility but unfortunately was met with a cookie cutter approach that didn't seem to address my issues. I had seen several different practitioners but wasn't able to get relief for my symptoms for longer than a few days.
I had been referred to Claire by a friend who had gotten treatment for a running injury to his knee. She got me running and lifting again better than I was before and gave me a solid plan to manage my back pain and prevent it from getting worse. I also have been getting treatment from Kari for a shoulder injury from jiu-jitsu that limited my range of motion and caused pain. After 2 sessions my mobility has improved, pain has been reduced, and I'm able to lift again. Not only do they get you back on your feet but they take the time to educate you so you can understand their methodology. Can't recommend Prevail enough.
The therapists at Prevail have extensive knowledge in the field and many years of experience on top of being life-long athletes themselves. Their treatments involve dry-needling, deep massage, and their modality has truly provided lasting relief. My wife and I have been happily seeing the physical therapists at Prevail for several years now.
Laura is the superwoman who helps my child keep her bendy body together so she can function. We were lucky to find her as working with hypermobile patients is not everyone’s forte. She is patient and kind with a kid who hates doctors and who doesn’t always follow her therapy plan. She also helped me through foot rehabilitation so I could walk again. We would be lost without her!
Jenny Lennon is my trusted source for help in alleviating my back pain. She is patient-focused and science-minded. She is understanding and compassionate. I not only receive a concrete plan of help but encouragement as well.
Laura has been my "body mechanic" for several years, and has helped me deal with lower back pain (scoliosis, bad posture), bilateral knee replacements (3 months apart), shoulder issues, a complete avulsion of the right hamstring, and multiple other acute or nagging injuries and health problems. Through all of these myriad treatments Laura has leveraged a vast breadth of knowledge coupled with practical application to help me stay active well into my 60s. Her ability to come up with a comprehensive, but not overwhelming, treatment plan, communicated in a very understandable manner, works really well for me. Thanks, Laura!
