‘As I think back to first attending PT and being in so much pain, it’s amazing to see how much improvement I’ve made since then – all because of Teri and her dry needling technique! She truly is a gifted physical therapist and through dry needling and stretching activities, it’s been nothing short of a miracle that my daily health has been returned to me! Teri, Ginny, and the staff are exceptional therapists who genuinely want to see their patients improve to a full quality of life! I’m so grateful my doctor referred me to Teri! She and the other members of NPT provided the most wonderful care to me and I will always be forever grateful! If ever I need to return to PT it’s comforting to know, I’ll be in the best of hands!’
‘Teri’s demeanor was very calming and the process was much easier than I anticipated. She put 13 needles in my calf and ankle. A few felt like a small mosquito bite but most I did not feel at all…The outcome was that my pain level went from a 9 to a 1 in about two hours. It has not come back.’ – M.C.
‘After breaking my ankle in March of this year, having a surgical repair and enduring five weeks with crutches, I showed up for PT with Annie Pappas at Norwood PT. I was anxious about rehab because my job as a fitness instructor and yoga teacher took a big hit and I needed to get back to my life. I had lots of one on one time with Annie. She and the entire staff were kind, helpful, and pushed me just enough. I’m happy to say that today, five months later, I just finished a five mile run and could not be more appreciative of everyone at Norwood PT.’
‘My son is lucky to have Barbara as his PT and has benefitted from her knowledge and attention. She knows how to handle an athlete’s injuries. The staff are also quite helpful and the atmosphere is pleasant.’
‘I have been a patient at Norwood Physical Therapy since March 2017 through September 2017, receiving physical therapy treatment for a torn Achilles tendon. Michael Kane, MSPT, the owner of the clinic runs a great physical therapy operation. He and his entire staff have been professional and accommodating…They set me up with the proper exercises and worked with me letting me know if I was not doing them correctly. They also set the tone with friendly conversation asking about family and activities that were part of my life, showing that they care about each patient. I would recommend anyone who has physical therapy needs to look in to receiving therapy at Norwood Physical therapy.’
‘Thank you for your help with my sciatica issue while I travel for the MA/RI State Powerlifting Championship. I’m pleased to report that I medaled in the Masters Class and my weight class! I especially want to thank you for teaching me the “nerve glide” exercise… I do a few glides and am able to get the pain under control and get back to play. Thanks again for everything!’
‘Thank you all for helping me with my knees. I have made great progress and enjoyed working with everyone! I hope to be riding my bike again soon!’
‘I just want to thank you for everything you did for me while I was under your care at Norwood Physical Therapy. You were amazing, very warm, kind, and incredibly patient repeatedly fixing me so that I could continue my stubborn running. Thank you so much again for everything! I will truly miss seeing you all and will always recommend you to all my friends.’
