"Following a number of physician visits to identify a persistent issue with pain in my right hip, it was determined I had osteoarthritis present. I had the option to have a steroid injection to relieve the pain but after a conversation about alternatives elected to try PT before taking that step. The team at Madden quickly evaluated my condition and limitations and set up a routine series of visits for PT and related exercises for me to do at home. With each visit, I felt the staff was truly interested in my well-being, and patient with my questions. I felt respected and welcome - a rare thing in this age of quick in / quick out treatment.
As each week progressed, the pain was not only more manageable, but actually reduced. At the end of my series I can honestly say my use of pain medications is near zero, and I am back to doing many of the activities I was unable to do before treatment. I still have arthritis, and I do have limits, but I understand how to live with it in ways that I feel will keep me active for years to come. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend the Madden team for any type of physical therapy. By far one of the most pleasant medical professional experiences I have had. "

"I’ve had years of shoulder pain and was restricted to the motion I had with my shoulder, thanks to Madden Therapy I’ve been able to regain my shoulder back to full motion. I no longer have pain doing certain jobs I had difficulty with in the past it was all done without medication or surgery. I owe it all to my team I was assigned to at Madden Therapy and I owe them a huge thank you, I wouldn’t be were I am now and able to do what I able to do now without them. Thank you Madden Therapy!!"

"Chose Madden PT for my rehab after a knee replacement. Jan, Aly, Ryan, and Laura provide easy to follow instructions, correction when you're doing the exercise incorrectly, and wonderful encouragement. They are very thorough, take into account all your physical issues, and do an outstanding job. Reception always has a warm greeting and a cheerful goodbye! My improvement is 100% in flexibility and strength, and is great at scheduling your visits to meet your needs."

"I was experiencing intermittent shoulder pain and was sent to madden for physical therapy. The staff was very friendly and had a genuine concern for my problem. Everyone was very friendly and they provided me with exercises and therapy to alleviate this problem. After four weeks of therapy and 6 laser therapy sessions, I have not experienced any more episodes of the pain. I highly recommend them for knowledge and friendliness."

"Dear Chad, I seen your carpal tunnel video on-line and thank God I seen it! Although you look different in your picture, I know it is you without the beard. I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel by my family doctor and my specialist who he sent me to but nobody ever told me about the carpal tunnel exercises I could be doing so my condition would be livable with until I have the operation. It got to the point I could not even tie my shoes until I started doing your exercises. Thank You ever so much!! It seems that all they want to do now days is operate and not give you anything to go on to give you even temporary relief. All I got is me to help me if you know what I mean. I am single with pretty much no family. Again thanks ever so much!! Lived 2 years not too far from Pennsylvania in the town of Ellicottville by my dad. Talk to you hopefully later on!!"

"After seeing my orthopedic for ankle pain, he prescribed PT and specifically cold laser therapy. Madden was the first practice I found that advertised having a cold laser. The staff was so caring and helpful. Special shout out to Conner Pierce and his staff. They went above and beyond with my care. I am happy to report that the laser therapy was so effective that I was able to cancel an upcoming Cortizone shot because after just 2 treatments the swelling and pain completely disappeared."

The team was patient, and as hard working as I was. With their therapy sessions and my home exercise program, I've achieved amazing progress. My Orthopedist was stunned, and said that I have better range of motion now than If I'd have had surgery. Thank you Madden!"

I had a total knee replacement and my first visit after surgery I could barely bend, straighten or lift my knee. Nicole, Jordon and Teann were so patient with me, they would just say "do what you can do". Nicole came up with a plan and we all worked at it. My knee feels great and they know how to make PT fun and productive every visit. I couldn't have done it with Nicole, Jordan and TeAnn. Thank you so much!!!!"

Their goal is to get you moving and they work together flawlessly to make sure that happens. Prior to walking in there I was just hopeful to be free of pain that I suffered with for several years. Not only am I 100% pain free but my daily quality of life has been restored due to being back to normal with my mobility. I cannot thank them enough and I am so incredibly grateful."

"Recently I received therapy at Madden for a shoulder/neck injury. I had prepared myself for the cold, impersonal treatment so common with today’s health care providers. Instead, everyone at Madden, from the reception staff to the therapy team, was personable, professional and knowledgeable. During every session, each team member worked with me separately on specific exercises and other therapeutic remedies, yet the cohesiveness of the team was obvious and reassuring. Within a month, I regained the strength in my arm and I was pain free. I highly recommend this group of young professionals."

"I started with Nicole and her team 5 weeks after rotator cuff repair surgery. Progress was very slow in the beginning. We were all rather concerned because my shoulder was very uncooperative. Movement was next to impossible. Regaining my strength and mobility was going to be a very long process. Now, 4 months post surgery, I have made remarkable strides. Both strength and mobility are at about 75%. I couldn't have done it without the constant encouragement and positive attitude of Nicole and her team. They made my 3 times a week visits fun while always productive. I can't thank them enough for everything they helped me accomplish."

"Before I began treatment at Madden PT in Dauphin, PA, I had limited neck mobility and progressive TMJ dysfunction. In a last effort to avoid open joint surgery, I was referred to Madden PT in Dauphin for specialized TMJ therapy. When I met Dan and his team, I felt instantly at ease. The environment and location were ideal. Dan developed a TMJ Program catered to my specific needs. After a short time, I began to show true, measurable improvement and felt much relief! Dan, Britany, Natalie and Leslie are a great team. They really made every effort to provide me with an exceptional level of care. It's been almost a year and I continue to live with the benefits of this experience! If you are suffering from TMJ, and you are looking for treatment options prior to surgery, please consider calling Madden PT in Dauphin! It's been such a blessing to me!"

"Previously, I had a very negative experience at a different physical therapy provider. I was misdiagnosed and unheard, which exacerbated my symptoms and left me with limited options. After advocating for better care, I was referred for hip surgery. When it was time for me to begin my recovery, I asked my friends who they would recommend. The overwhelming response was Madden Physical Therapy! Upon my first visit, I could immediately feel the difference. Dr. Nicole listened to me, and, more importantly, she asked me to identify my goals of treatment. This approach truly resonated with me! I finally felt heard! Her level of compassionate listening is a gift!
Prior to beginning therapy, I had limited range of motion in my hip and minimal strength, but Dr. Nicole and her amazing team continued to develop an individualized plan that pushed me to new heights.
During my two-month follow up, my surgeon indicated that he had never seen a patient make as much progress as I had! This is truly a testament to the expertise and level of care at Madden. Their PTs and assistants are top notch. I give them the highest level of recommendation, especially Dr. Nicole’s team!"

"I recently finished my PT with Madden Physical Therapy in Dauphin, PA. Never having gone through lower back pain that put me in such a debilitating state before, I never would have though that I would have the results I did. The first time through the door I needed to use a cane. My second visit I walked slowly but without the cane. I now have no sign of the severe pain that brought me to PT. I must say that Danny, Nate and Leslie are so welcoming and reassuring every step of the way. I would and will highly recommend Madden Physical Therapy to anyone who needs a PT!"

"In the Fall of 2018 I came back to Madden with tingling and pain down my left leg to the point where I would have to stop walking in order to calm down whatever was going on with my leg and hip. Nichole Doni and Lauren got me back to normal with hands on manipulation, traction and exercises. So this spring when I incorrectly uprighted a fallen motorcycle and had extreme back pain that prevented me from laying flat or even sitting correctly, I returned to Madden and Nichole and crew had me back on my motorcycle in less than a month. Madden is highly recommended in my book! Thank you, Ladies!

I had a knee replacement and not in the best frame of mind. Danny and Nate listened to me wine and complain and still helped me. I limped when I first walked in Madden and when finished with PT walked out without a limp and feeling 100%.
Thank you Danny, you are the best! Thank you Nate, Leslie, Natalie, Dan and Britany, you all do a wonderful job."

I now feel I have the tools to keep working at home and continue to feel good.

"I had a right total knee replacement in April 2019. I was in a tremendous amount of pain, had swelling and came in using a walker a few days after surgery. I worked with Joe's team for a little over 12 weeks. Conner, Michelle, Becky and Jordon were wonderful. They were so nice and encouraging. I started looking forward to my PT sessions. They worked me hard but I always felt so much better leaving a session than when I came in. Now a little over 3 months later I am walking well, have improved my strength and my pain has greatly decreased. They always listened and gave me great suggestions. They truly care about each and every patient. I don't know what I would have done without them. Thank you all!"

"This is my third experience with Madden Physical Therapy. The previous two times it was a positive experience, so I expected nothing less for this incident & I wasn’t disappointed. Dan H. knows his stuff. When I first arrived, I was experiencing a sore, stiff neck that had lasted for three months. I had very little range of motion when I turned my head & even that was painful (turning). Dan prescribed exercises which strengthened & aligned the muscles & ligaments responsible for supporting my neck. By doing these exercises & submitting myself to the care & directions of the friendly & professional staff (thank you Britany, Natalie & Leslie) I am pretty much pain free today. I would not have believed this possible three months ago. You guys are magicians. Thanks again.”"

"I had knee discomfort on and off for about 2 months before deciding it was time to see my doctor. She recommended stating Physical Therapy to help strengthen my legs. I chose Madden for convenience. I LOVED every appointment. I was lucky enough to have Sarah, Luke and Josh as my team. They made myself and my son feel welcome from the minute I was introduced to them down to the minute I completed my therapy.
I had to take my son, who was shy at first, to almost every visit. They made him feel comfortable and helped keep him busy while I did my exercises. It got to the point where he would start asking for Sara on the days we didn't have therapy.
Through my experience at Madden, I have not only increased my leg strength, but I now push myself harder and enjoy exercising and walking more than ever. I learned some inner workings of my legs and how to keep them strong to ensure my knees stay strong. I appreciate all their hard work and assistance. I HIGHLY recommend Madden, especially Dr. Luke and his team.
The ladies at the front desk were just as amazing. They always remember your face and check you in without you having to make sure. Overall a VERY pleasant experience. I'm actually sad my appointments are over."

"After having a knee replacement this past July, I began to experience rather severe and frequent lower back pain. While I've tolerated mild to moderate back pain on occasion for several years, the onset of more severe pain following my knee replacement prompted me to seek relief.
Fortunately, Dan Hinnerschitz, DPT happened to be scheduled as a dinner speaker at our local Lions Club where he discussed the various aspects of lower back pain and the benefits that could be obtained from physical therapy...I immediately scheduled an evaluation with Dr. Dan at Madden Physical Therapy's Dauphin clinic.
Long story short...Dr. Dan's style of physical therapy including manual manipulation did the trick to minimize my recurring episodes of severe SI joint pain, as well as further improve the mobility of my new knee. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Dan and the kind and courteous folks currently staffing the Dauphin clinic...thanks Brittany, Natalie and Leslie.

"I was recently having some problems with my foot and seeing a podiatrist. We had tried shoe inserts, stretching, taping along with other things. I was getting very frustrated and not really feeling any better. I stopped doing Refit classes as well as walking on the treadmill because of the discomfort. I had resolved that I surgery was probably going to be the next step. I was told to talk to Dr. Dan and see what he could do. I thought that at least if I have to get surgery on my foot some stretching and exercise will benefit in recovery. Well guess what, the therapy was so successful that I cancelled my surgery within two weeks of therapy!!! I cannot express how happy I am to finally get back to Refit classes as well as walking on the treadmill again.
Dr. Dan and his staff are wonderful! They are a very caring group that really works together for the benefit of their patients. Thank you, Dr. Dan, Leslie, Britany and Natalie for all your help in my speedy recovery and not having to have surgery; you are "THE BEST""

They listened to what I was experiencing with my injury and showed me exercises that would help alleviate or lessen the problem. They answered any questions I had and made sure that if I were doing something wrong,I not only corrected it but they explained why it was important to do it in a specific way. They also showed me that even slight adjustments to my exercise would help in completing the exercise. They made me feel that my recovery was important to them. I am grateful for all they did for me.

"After a shoulder injury, I had pain every day trying to do my job as a Dental Hygienist. I came to Madden Physical Therapy, and specifically to Dr Dan Hinnerschitz, on the recommendation of a friend. I had ZERO expectations having already been through 8 weeks of physical therapy with another group. After only a few sessions with Dan and his team, I noticed an incredible difference and realized the importance of their "hands-on therapy" apporoach. I also noticed that "the team" never takes their eyes off you, so you are forced to do all the exercises and do them correctly. (Human nature tends to make you want to take the 'path of least resistance") I feel strongly that this way of treatment guides you along more smoothly and that the end result is much more successful.
On a personal level, Dan is knowledgeable and serious about is work, yet relaxed and fun. He is constantly learning new philosophies and treatments and conducts clinics nationwide to share this information with other Physical Therapists.
In Madden's newly-opened Dauphin office, Dan invites the general public to NO-COST evening seminars - each one focusing on a specific body part. I recently attended one and can say that everyone in attendance was surprised at what they learned and was eager to make an appointment.
I could say many more positive things, but one thing for sure is that I would have had to give up my profession 5 years ago had I not met Dr Dan!!"

I wanted to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to your team at the Harrisburg Office.
I came to your clinic this past July with SI joint pain. I was a bit skeptical, but I thought what do I have to lose. I couldn't sleep well with the pain and was attempting to do stretches on my own as well as popping advil throughout the day. I decided to try the self referral option and my first appointment was with Dan Hinnerschitz. Dan, was exceptional! He listened to everything I had to say and he put me at ease. After my evaluation, Dan introduced me to his team---Britt, Josh and Sarah. I can't say enough about all of them. They were all so kind and they genuinely seem to love what they do! As I watched all of them throughout my few weeks of therapy, they take a keen interest in every patient. They ask about what they did over the weekend and take a personal interest in everyone.
Your clinic is super. I couldn't believe that I actually saw the actual physical therapist each and every visit and they actually did some manipulation on you.
I actually am now 1 week post therapy with a check in next week and I'm following my exercises. I think the Harrisburg Clinic will definitely miss Dan, however, I can see why you chose him to be your new Clinical Director at your Dauphin office.
I thought it was important for me to write you and let you know how good your facility and team is---all too often, people only write letters of their dissatisfaction. Everyone at the check in desk was also very nice as well.
Thank you Chad and your team! I have told others of the great experience I had and I would recommend your clinic to anyone. Sometimes, word of mouth, is the best advertisement!
Please do me a favor and pass on my thanks to Dan, Britt, Josh and Sarah. They deserve it!

"Well, it’s been three years since I’ve written these words to Dan, my Physical Therapist at Madden Physical Therapy but well worth posting publicly especially now that he is running a Brand New Clinic located in Dauphin, PA!!!
Dan...with you as my Physical Therapist along with your team, YOU made it possible for me to actually ride a bicycle again, go zip lining with my grandson and I'm now pain free!!!
When I first came to see you, I had seen an Orthopaedic doctor who wanted to do injections into my spine or surgery. If that didn’t work, which I didn’t want either option, so my regular doctor sent me to Madden Physical Therapy where I was lucky enough to be assigned to Dan and his team.
I had dreaded my long work days where I'm on my feet 100% of the time and prayed I was going to see you the next day for some relief. But...with the core and stretching exercises you gave to me for my bulging disk, I've found that I'm literally pain free. I faithfully do these exercises to this very day.
I found that the staff was also extremely friendly and helpful along with Leslie (who is now the receptionist in Dauphin) were also outstanding!!!
Madden Physical Therapy is number 1 in my book for certain!!! Thank you doesn't seem to be adequate enough, but thank you dearly!!!"

"When I was referred to Madden Physical Therapy I was in bad shape. I was in extreme pain in my neck and shoulders and could barely move my arms. My initial evaluation with Joe and Conner was excellent. They were compassionate about my pain and immediately began building a therapy program to help me get my range of motion back. I've been seeing them three times a week and two weeks later I have seen 70% improvement in my range of motion and I'm almost pain free. The facility is clean, the staff is kind, efficient, and professional, and I can't imagine a better experience."

"After being referred to Madden by my physician I was called promptly and scheduled and mailed a health questionnaire to fill out in advance of my appointment.
Initial appointment, evaluation and PT sessions have been professional, helpful and friendly. The facility is clean and well lit providing a cheerful environment no matter what kind of pain you are trying to mitigate.
Entire staff is very helpful and pleasant. Overall this has been a very good experience with physical therapy."

"After many years of appointments I finally was able to get some relief in my neck and shoulders. The team approach and genuine concern by each member of Nicoles team paid off. I can move my neck better than I have been able to in years and my shoulders are noticeably less tight. I was most impressed by a team who worked together to figure out the best approach to help me, it wasn't just one therapist who went with their opinion of what was going to work. I was also impressed by the card exercise system. What a brilliant idea! Now I can and do exercise at home on a regular basis. "

"I have had rehab at several places after a hospital stay some of overnight and than afterwards when you get home. Madden is the best of all of them. They really listen and care about how you are advancing. They don't tell you what to do and go away somewhere else. They watch, encourage, remind and correct every aspect of your therapy. There are two people at all times guiding you. One with many years of college and the other rehab assistant. You are first checked in by the office workers.Than talk with a person that takes care of all the paperwork and works and explains everything. There are no unknowns or surprises. They are the best team I have ever worked with."

"After 6 months of PT at a major Hospital in the area, I had all but given up the thought of a complete recovery from an ankle replacement surgery. finally after two years of suffering I followed the advice of a friend who had used Madden. In a few short months they had me walking without pain, and finally walking totally limp free. In my mind Dr. Dan H. is a miracle worker. If it can be done, He will do it. Thanks from a very satisfied customer."

I went to them twice, first for siatica and then I severely sprained my back. I never thought I would be able to walk comfortable again. The exercises and instructions they provided were invaluable. I highly recommend them. I have moved to SW Florida and I'm still searching for a facility that I trust for physical therapy like Madden, they're the best in my experience."

The exercises I'm doing are good for me and the manual manipulation they perform on me is right on. Plus their smiles, attentiveness and encouragement are an added bonus and help to make the therapy sessions more pleasant! With continued therapy, I hope to see lots of improvement. Susan Bay"

"My doctor has told me the "aging isn't for the timid" I now understand what he means. I started having pain and loss of movement in my hip. The folk at Madden have put me on the road to better flexibility and mobility. When it's tough to put your socks on in the morning you start to believe it's old age and that is the way it's going to be... Madden PT has proven to me that this isn't so. With their help I'm improving and feeling less pain. That's a good thing."

"What can I say... Andrew Dulak and his team are the absolute BEST. Always welcoming, always professional, shows empathy and understanding. Explains everything with excellent knowledge. They are not only the best tag-team PT's, they are also the most fun, and has the ability to make me smile and even laugh when I'm in pain. They have encouraged me to keep up my home PT sessions and reminded me of my end goal when I seemed discouraged. I know physically I would not be where I am today if not for their care, which was not limited to just my physical needs but also mentally. Thank you... to my boys...
But lets not forget the rest of the staff, from the pretty smiles and happy faces at the front desk, to Amy in Accounting and the rest of the Madden staff. HIGH5's... keep up the good work. Jeni Ford"

"Madden PT is filled with professionals who have a way of making clients feel very comfortable. I've been to a few other PT groups over past years and there seemed to be a "pressure" to relate to them that I felt better after anything they did to me or had me do. Madden PTs understand that patience is key and improvement doesn't happen overnight or with one adjustment or exercise. Thank you, Madden PT, for your patience, attitude and warming welcome!"

"My daughter is a softball pitcher. She injured her shoulder in the preseason and I was very concerned about PT. I have heard plenty of horror stories about young athletes and PT. Finally, we decided to try Madden Physical Therapy. It was an amazing experience. I called the office and shared my concerns with the receptionist. The receptionist was great. We talked for quite a while and she told me I could bring my daughter in for an assessment and speak with a therapist and then decide if we wanted to continue. We did the assessment and we were very please with Joe. He really listened to our concerns and during the conversation got a full understanding of the problem my daughter was experiencing as well as how the injury occurred and the nature of the pain. We began physical therapy the very next day. Another thing we thought was amazing was that every time we went in for therapy Joe touched based with us and talked to my daughter about her progress. The people she worked with during the process were equally fantastic. They guided her and encouraged her, as well as checking on her status frequently to make sure her shoulder and arm were progressing. As they added exercises to her workout they explained the importance of each one. After she was completed with her program she had several follow up appointments to just ensure no difficulties as her season progressed. If we ever need PT we will not hesitate to return to Madden Physical Therapy. They really care about their patients!!!!"

"I have only been here for my IE (inital eval, 97001) so far and exercises. All of the staff from the front desk to the owner are exceptional. I got a phone call on a Sunday to remind me about my appointment. I was taken back to the PT by a very kind aide who knew I was extremely nervous, so she took the time to be even more nice. The PT introduced himself - he had great manners and took the time to REALLY evaluate me. I felt like my PT covered aspects of my limited movement I was initially unaware of. When the eval ended I received help and support as I got walked through the prescribed exercises.
While my initial prognosis is a bit scary -- I am comforted knowing I will be receiving care from an exceptional team. "

"I acquired a stress fracture of the L-5 during my days of soccer. My doctors put me in a brace and hoped it would heal itself. After nine months they told me I would never have a healthy back again. I didn't like that so I went to Madden Physical Therapy. In just four months, Madden's proven rehabilitation routine got me back to running and riding bike. If it wasn't for the wonderful service provided by Chad and his great staff, I would be limited to walking. Thanks Madden PT for making me pain free!"

“I was almost killed in a work-related accident in March (2019); when I was pinned between two truck trailers. I had severe pressure on my lower left back and left pelvis. Within a few weeks my pain in these areas became intolerable. Several times I was unable to stand after sitting for even a few minutes and the easiest of household tasks became nearly impossible to do.
I sought help from Madden at their Dauphin center. The staff is so pleasant, caring, and knowledgeable. My therapist, Danny Willey listened intently to my concerns during my free consult; and went to work immediately. He determined I likely had a displaced left sacroiliac joint and with one nearly painless maneuver, we heard the joint pop back into place. Within 2 days I was completely pain-free in my left hip/pelvis. Following with just a few visits where I was taught simple stretching/strengthening exercises; I am completely pain-free. My outcome exceeded my expectations! Thank you Madden team.”
“When I came to Madden PT, I was having lower back pain that interfered with my ability to do many activities. I thought I was just getting old and this was how I would have to live. I would have pain during and after my exercise classes and while doing normal household chores and especially yardwork. I also had constant neck pain. Now I can do all these activities without having the pain. I have more flexibility (I can touch my toes) and can turn my head without pain! Thank you, Luke, Josh, Sara, and Aly, for helping me to feel young again! You all are the best. This is my first PT experience and it far exceeded my expectations."
“When I began with Madden, I could not walk without a walker, and could not lift my right leg myself. I could not do any house chores or make any meals. Now, through therapy and home exercises, I can do all my own cooking and house chores. I am walking by myself without any assistance. Steps are the only thing I have a little trouble with.
The experience I have had here was very pleasant. The staff are very pleasant and accommodating, and they’re fun to be around. Dr. Danny Willey was great and always answered all of my questions. I will continue to recommend this place of therapy.”
“Dan & his team have been my saving grace. I re-injured my hip & lost a lot of mobility in my hip & low back because of it. After my first visit my mobility was much better. By the end, I’m back to my normal self, and my hips are pain free. Dan helped me find stretches that work for me, and I’m able to keep up with my workouts now and not have pain. Thanks Dan, Britany & Natalie!”
“When I started, I could barely move my arm and shoulder without pain. Now that I have done the exercises at Madden and at home, I can move freely without pain. Working in a cafeteria was tough at times, but with the exercises and pointers I have learned and use on a daily basis, it is much easier working each day. Thank you to Christian, Robin, Meagan, and Austin. I am feeling 100% better."
“Dr. Luke, Josh, and Sara have been incredible to work with each week. When I started treatment, my pain limited my ability to do all of my normal day to day activities; I could not work out, sleep, or play with my children without experiencing constant pain. During my seven weeks with my PT team, I’ve been able to get back to living my normal life. I’m very appreciative of the care that Luke, Sara, and Josh have provided.”
“My experience with Madden has been great, I tried shots, other therapy, chiropractic, and nothing worked. I couldn’t ride for more than 10 minutes in a car, couldn’t walk in a store for long. Could not do so many things like picking up my granddaughter. Now I can do all these things so I am so thankful for everyone here at Madden. Everyone has been great. It has been a long 13 months.
Thank you so much, I can never thank you enough, Christian, Robin, and Austin for giving me a pain free leg and back.”
“Had trouble turning head side to side and couldn’t raise my right arm. Pain in my back on the left side, balance a little off, and pain.
Today I am pain free, feel wonderful, back to my old self one more time. I turn 75 years young today, and I feel much younger, moving better, thinking better without pain. Thanks to the team that worked on me."
“Coming to Madden PT was the best decision I made. Before I came I could not sit or stand for more than a few minutes without pain. My life activities were on hold, and my job was suffering. With dedication to my PT program my life had resumed back to normal. I can walk, drive, lift, and sleep through the night without any pain. I am able to participate in family activities again with no pain at all. I am very thankful to Jan, Ryan, and Josh for all they did for me, the best caring staff. Thank you so much!”
Before starting – I was concerned I would need surgery again because my pain was consistently getting worse. Attended one of Chad’s workshops & he was confident that PT would help and gradually reduce likelihood for surgery! Now, when I am consistent with my exercises I can be pretty much pain free! I enjoy playing with my dog, walking with friends, and riding my horse again! Way better than surgery 😊
And even though staying seated to do work—when I do my stretches—it definitely helps!! Thanks to Joe and the team for putting up with me and making the healing process fun!
“When a surgeon told me that physical therapy was the only way I could get relief for my back pain my heart sunk. I did not get relief from physical therapy in the past, but after working with Jan, Ryan, and Josh I am doing much better. My pain level is greatly decreased as well as less frequent.”
“I am very pleased with my results. I went from not being able to lift my arm above shoulder height to having nearly restored 100% range of motion. I was having trouble doing simple things like putting on a coat or putting my hair yup to being able to do all that and more! I would recommend Madden PT to friends and family. I loved the team that I worked with, Jan, Ryan, and Josh are the best!”
“I found the staff to be very welcoming. I had difficulty sleeping on my right shoulder and occasional shoulder pain after playing tennis. Now I have discomfort rarely when sleeping and no pain after tennis. The PT was just what I needed to strengthen the shoulder area and loosen up the muscles to have more flexibility. The “hands on” technique was especially helpful as I felt it loosened up my upper back. Thank you.”
