“For many years, I have been struggling with lower back pain caused by disc degeneration and a nagging discomfort from my left rhomboid. Over the years, I have tried chiropractic treatments, deep tissue massages, and a variety of exercises with only temporary relief at best. In January and February of this year, I had two pain blocks in my lower back because I was experiencing pain and spasms.
I began seeing Rebecca O’Neal at Therapy South Hoover in late September of this year. On my first visit, Rebecca treated me with dry needling therapy, and the results have been outstanding. I am no longer having lower back spasms and my rhomboid condition is improving as well.
Not only has the dry needling therapy helped, but Rebecca has also me to a variety of exercises that help both conditions. Unfortunately, many of the exercises I have done over the years have been counterproductive. Even though I played sports in high school and college and exercised for many years, I did not have the physical therapy knowledge to exercises properly to help my conditions.
Now that I’m having less pain and discomfort, I’ve been able to increase my overall exercise program significantly.
Over the years, I’ve been to other physical therapists, but I can honestly say that the professionalism, knowledge, and skill at Therapy South surpass any of my past experiences.” -Ed R.
