Sue is the "ring leader" and super special...She is in charge and starts the new patients out with a plan. She greeted me with an encouraging smile and enthusiastic attitude (as she did every time she saw me!) and told me in our first session that I would absolutely get better if I followed the plan and she was right!...She spent time learning about my injury, recommending exercises and therapies, and patiently working with me through those. She encouraged me through the MRI and cortisone process, which was extremely helpful and even how to order the most amazing moist heating pad through Amazon! She was always professional and caring as well as funny and we had some great laughs together which helps through the sessions. I had the pleasure, and it really was, to work with Tricia who is just as awesome! She is sweet and super considerate and at the start of each and every session always asked how I was feeling and provided positive encouragement and energy! She was patient and always supportive even when I couldn't get those towel exercises right!. She was also so kind and always had great conversations and I always left feeling so energized and encouraged..and she taught me how to do exercises at home as well in between sessions.
