What is Sciatica?
If I had PT for my back before and it didn’t help, why would it help now?
How does the PT assess my back and SI joint?
Your PT will sit down with you and discuss your current and past symptoms and what activities in your daily life are currently difficult or painful due to your back pain. Then your PT will conduct a thorough examination looking at your strength, range of motion, flexibility, stability of your lower back and both legs, how you are walking, balancing, standing and sitting and then palpate your area of pain. Then your PT will discuss the findings with you and, together, set up a plan that may include exercises, activities, manual hands on techniques and muscle activation training.

Cheryl is very knowledgeable and practical. She uses your time well and gives you exercises and feedback that maximize your healing. I would recommend her to any patient.
Cheryl is AMAZING!! I have several health issues that require long term Physical Therapy and I have tried multiple therapist but none meet the level of care I received from her. She is kind and tough which adds up to an improvement of quality of life for me. She always makes me feel comfortable and is attentive to my pain level and ability. If you need a therapist please please try Cheryl!!! I will continue to use her no matter what practice she is working at!

Dr. Cheryl’s techniques have produced amazing results. I started seeing her for knee pain after a fall while taking a walk. She is very professional and knew exactly what to do to not only eliminate my knee pain but also to improve my balance and fear of falling again. I felt unbelievable results quickly and I notice progress every day. She even walked with me to the spot where I fell to be sure I was confident enough to walk there again. I would definitely recommend her for any physical therapy needs.
Cheryl has been awesome. I've suffered from back issues for a long time and she has helped me so much. Her kindness and expertise show through with every visit. She helped me make a life plan of exercises that I do every day now. She's terrific!
