Last summer, in a split second, cleaning the bottom freezer of my refrigerator, I was in sudden and excruciating back pain. I tried everything for 36 hours, ice, heat, lying down, standing up, moving slowly – NOTHING was helping and I was in constant pain. I could not function nor sleep. I finally went to Urgent Care and got painkillers. They only took the ‘edge off’ so I could, with utter exhaustion, fall asleep for a while. Every time I moved, I woke up with sharp pain. I called Atlas Physical Therapy. Sam and the team ‘fit me into the schedule’ and I began my healing journey. I am so grateful! Not only is Sam extremely knowledgeable and capable, but he also has naturally ‘healing hands’. If it weren’t for him, I would have truly gone insane from the pain! Within the first session or two, I could already tell the difference. I stopped taking the pain meds after 3 days and embraced physical therapy and healing 100%. Physical therapy is an investment in time and effort. Not only do you need a good therapist and team but, you need a relaxing and supportive environment since you spend so much time there. Sam and his team make you feel ‘at home’, taking care to really know you and talk to you when you arrive and during your treatments so that the time passes more quickly and you feel ‘taken care’ of. Once my back was relatively pain-free and I had exercises and stretches I could do at home, I moved on to have Sam ‘fix’ my neck. I have had chronic pain in my neck and shoulder and, tingling in my shoulder and right arm. Sam fixed my neck too and taught me how to maintain it!! I highly recommend Atlas Physical Therapy. I am happy to say, with my maintenance exercises and stretches, I am able to live without chronic pain after 30+ years!!   Kuan Y., West Orange, NJ July 3, 2018
