I came to PT because I have (chronically) bad knees, and I was concerned that my mobility was decreasing and my pain was increasing. My doctor suggested I try PT to improve the situation. I had met Noah at a health fair at work, and had previously come here for a free 30 min evaluation. But I did my homework before selecting APM, because it was not a convenient location to work or home. I read lots of reviews from 3 different sources, and was intrigued by the fact that APM was consistently rated high, no negative reviews, and many mentioned that Noah was great or even bordering on miraculous.

So I came and met with Noah and was impressed by his positive, encouraging attitude and by his willingness to meet me where I was and work with me. (At that point I was feeling discouraged and at times hopeless.) But Noah helped flip that feeling and got me back on track.

I have been to PT several times before and I believe that at least 50% of the healing comes from keeping up the spirit to persevere. All the staff here have been great at that, and very respectful, and this point is not lost on me.

So I still have pain but the trend is reversed. Instead of getting worse, I believe it can gradually get better or at least get to a more manageable level.

Importantly, I have learned strategies for stretching and strengthening that I can take forward, and I intend to do so. I do have more “good days” now with my knees and look forward to that continuing.

Thanks for everything. I’ve already recommended you to two people. See you in a few months.
