I was treated at Fyzical by Jan Hanson for 20 visits this past summer. She is, without a doubt, the best physical therapist out there. I have been to countless therapists over the past 20 years, and particularly in the past 10 years, no one has been able to even touch my pain. I was diagnosed with MS 12 years ago, and since then, severe and chronic pain has become an overwhelming problem for me. From the first appointment at Fyzical, I felt relief. I have a complicated situation, and Jan was very thorough in assessing and treating my various pains as well as my oversensitivity to pain. By the end of the measly 20 visits my insurance allowed me, I was having lasting benefits from her treatment. It is incredibly unfortunate I was unable to continue with her, but I am fortunate that I found her at all. I am eagerly awaiting the turn of the calendar so I can return!
"I’ve been disabled by headaches for about 30 years. Several doctors have sent me packing saying they could not help me. I searched the internet for a physical therapist that had knowledge of and had experience with advanced techniques for headaches. I found Jan’s website and I wanted to further explore her treatments, hoping she would be able to help me. After being treated by Jan, my life has changed. She has helped me immensely and I have been able to manage my life much better. I feel better than I have felt in years. I enjoy reading and doing crossword puzzles again and I also work out at Lifetime 5 days a week. I always felt better after each appointment and I left feeling much improved each time a I saw her. I strongly recommend her expertise in diagnosing and treating my condition. My wife has also seen Jan with excellent results."
LOW BACK PAIN
"When first started with Jan I had a ruptured disk and was in a lot of pain. She helped to prepare my body for surgery and helped me deal with the pain. Shortly after surgery we started rehab with the hope of getting me back to where I was before I hurt my back. Between the techniques she uses to help reset my muscles and nervous system to help with the pain, and the exercises and tools she gave me to use at home, I’m back to where I was before seeing her. I have exercises I do every day at home to help me continue to improve and she has taught me some techniques to help keep my pelvis in check. I’m back to doing my true love of working in my gardens, mowing the lawn and other weekly home chores, etc. I’m able to do things with my young kids again without being in pain or worrying about having a flare up the next day. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge from all of her years of experience and would recommend her to anyone. As a healthcare worker myself, I know a good therapist when I see one."
LOW BACK PAIN
“My back pain was such that I could not ride in a car, sit at a desk or watch TV without pain. Whenever I sought treatment, the answer was medicate. I began treatment and after only two treatments experienced less pain when sitting and going about my daily activities. After a couple more treatments my pain is nearly non-existent. The therapist’s compassion and understanding has been very encouraging for me and I've bragged about her to my friends!”
LOW BACK PAIN
“Fifteen years ago I had back surgery. The surgery was successful and I have been doing fine. Four weeks ago, the pain returned. It went all the way down my leg. Bending hurt so bad and I couldn’t hold and walk with my grandchildren. After two treatments the severe pain was gone. After four treatments the pain was all gone.”
“I woke up one morning with a pain in my neck and I could not turn my head. The therapist (at FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers) felt so great and made me feel so much better. I could feel her working out the stiffness and pain in my neck. I returned for a second visit and her physical therapy treatment was a success in my neck! I have not had a pain at all and I would highly recommend FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers. The therapist had a very gentle manner and explained her treatment to me. It was greatly appreciated. It was a pleasant experience.”
“For the last 10 years I have periodically suffered from spasms in my neck and right shoulder. The pain brings my shoulder up to my ear and makes it difficult to function. My doctor has sent me to various therapists to relieve the pain and strengthen the area. Under the therapist’s plan (at FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers), I have greater range of motion, less pain and have had only minor spasm episodes that I have been able to stop on my own. I highly recommend the clinic. The therapist is a professional, competent therapist who gave excellent service, follow-up, and did not make me feel like just another insurance claim.”
“Before I went to FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers, I was having two-three migraines a week, lasting 24-36 hours. I was also being seen in urgent care/ER at least twice a month. Since I started treatment I am no longer being seen in Urgent Care/ER on a regular basis. And my migraines, when I do get them (maybe once a month), last for a much shorter period of time and I can treat them with home remedies! Thanks!”
“I have been in pain for almost 2 years. I had been to doctors over and over, with different diagnoses and different medications, but no relief. I went in (to FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers) out of desperation and with very little belief. After one treatment I had immediate relief and have just gotten better. I take no meds (now) and I wake up in the morning and go to bed at night with no pain.”
“For the past 5 years I have had chronic pain in my right hand, wrist, arm and shoulder blade. It had gotten progressively more uncomfortable. About two years ago, I sought help through physical therapy. At that time I had about 6 weeks of therapy by being put on a tens machine each visit (another clinic). This only relieved the pain while on the machine. I stopped the visits. The chronic pain persisted. I was then referred to FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers. My pain has diminished to an almost negligible status, which has also helped my emotional state. I am no longer in chronic pain. In fact, I am pain-free most of the time. Once in awhile it begins to flare and through the therapist’s direction have used the self-therapy Theracane. I know now what Physical Therapy should really involve and am thankful that I found someone who knew how to treat my situation.”
“I came to FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers with Tennis Elbow pain in my left arm. The pain would be so bad, at times, that I could not hold more than a pound. My pain is gone and I continue to improve my grip strength. Thank you for your help.”
