Patty Carafa was seen in our Southampton Clinic after two years of dealing with Achilles pain. She is now able to run after her granddaughter!
“Due to an ineffective past experience, I did not have much faith in Physical Therapy! but after dealing with Achilles Tendonitis for about two years, I was willing to give it another try! Luckily, a brand new Excel Physical Therapy office had just opened in Southampton, PA. I did a quick drive by and was impressed by the looks of the clinic (spacious, well lit, and clean).
My first positive experience was when I called for an appointment and spoke with Barbara. She was professional and at the same time so friendly. She was understanding when I had to cancel a few sessions. Best of all, when I went in for my sessions at almost the end of the day it was nice to be greeted by such a pleasant young lady!
At my first appointment I met my therapist, Ryan Mark. He was polite, professional, and knowledgeable about my condition, which he explained in anatomical terms and then translated into “English” He completed my assessment, established our goals and began instructing me on what exercises to do, explaining their purposes and how to do them correctly. At all times during the sessions he showed concern about my comfort while doing the exercises, checked for proper posture always in a calm and supportive manner which made me feel at ease.
I must say that my new Physical Therapy experience with Excel, particularly with Ryan, who I consider a healer, has been tremendous. My Achilles tendon is 99.9% back to normal, I feel strong and comfortable. I am back to Zumba, Kempo, Horseback riding and what I love the most running after our Granddaughter!!
Thank You Ryan! Thank You Barb! Thank You Excel!”
