It has been over fifteen years since I had two falls, sustaining injury to my neck and lower back. The multi level injuries and multiple degenerative spinal changes caused increasingly severe pain and lessening of my ability to engage in routine daily activities. The period of time I could stand, sit or walk diminished greatly. The level of discomfort was unresponsive to traditional treatment modes. Traditional physical therapy, medication, epidurals, and chiropractic each resulted in varying degrees of temporary and short-lived  relief. Much to my dismay I had to give up tennis, which physicians and I agreed was aggravating the situation. A little over two years ago, a family member, herself a physical therapist, was visiting from out of town. She suggested that I look for a physical therapist with training in manual manipulation of the musculoskeletal system. I went immediately to the Internet and I found Sam!!! What a blessing he has been! Sam is warm, friendly and genuinely concerned about his patients. IN addition he brings special skills and valuable knowledge to the treatment experience. The staff working with Sam further enhances the atmosphere in the office. Chatting with other patients during my first few visits, I was assured that "Sam works miracles". Working with Sam three times a week initially, the pain began to lessen and I was gradually able to resume some daily activities without the previous level of discomfort. It became clear that pacing myself differently was also imperative. We eventually agreed that return to the tennis court was not advisable. In addition to the manual manipulation, treatment included heat, electrical stimulation, ultrasound and specific exercises recommended by Sam. At the conclusion of the treatment I was essentially pain free and only infrequently needing to use medication. Sam told me that he "could not eliminate the problem but he could make the spine function better" and that he did. This is definitely the mode of treatment for me! Two years later, I am now completing a "tune-up" series of treatments. I can now personally vouch for Sam's ability to "work miracles".
