“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.
“My experience with TherapySouth is incomparable. As an athlete, I’ve experienced my fair share of injuries and unfortunately, I recently had to undergo surgery for both my knees. TherapySouth has been with me the whole way! My physical therapist is the best “coach” around. Just when I think I can’t, he is there to encourage me and tell me I can. The staff is compassionate and knowledgeable. They are always friendly and accommodating around my busy schedule.” -Laura C.
“I really enjoyed my experience at TherapySouth in Hoover. I have a long-standing friendship with the co-director, Ryan. They have a friendly staff as well as an outstanding reputation in terms of the knowledge and skill needed to provide exceptional care. I really appreciated the flexibility of treatment times they offered, and the best part is that they are conveniently located near me, a resident in the Hoover community.” -Larry S.
Trigger points, often a component of myofascial pain syndrome, are irritable, hard “knots” within a muscle that may cause pain over a large area. A potential treatment option is dry needling, which consists of a very thin needle that your therapist pushes through the skin to stimulate the trigger points, muscles, or connecting tissues.LEARN MORE
