Testimonials from Our Patients
I am pleased to express my wonderful experience with my PT with Erica and Callye. They are professional and caring. This goes for the rest of the staff as well. They seem to enjoy their work and bend over backwards to ensure the best possible results for their efforts. It seems all of their patients are very satisfied. I will continue my PT as I feel my progress is positive. Thank you very much!
After coming to a knee pain workshop at Hayes Physical Therapy I decided to try their class IV laser treatment. I had been living with chronic knee pain for several years. I had one total knee replacement in 2011, Initially successful until bone spurs grew in that knee and I was back dealing with pain again. Because of this, I decided not to have my other knee replaced which was painful as well.
I saw online that I could try laser and therapy for a potential pain-free life. I doubted that would work however I was wrong. Before having laser therapy my pain levels were 10 out of 10 on both knees bringing me to tears and requiring me to use my walker 3-4 times a week.
After my first session of laser on both knees, I walked out without pain for 4 days, 0 out of 10 pain! Over the course of 10 laser treatments, I have become pain-free and do not need the use of my walker. I am so grateful for Hayes Physical Therapist care, knowledge, treatment, and laser therapy. I am a totally happy client. I have told many people I know about my success in dealing with my painful knees.
I came to this practice in August 2018, after experiencing nerve pain in L5/S1. A year prior I’d herniated that disk and thought I’d improved enough. But swimming only 10 laps in July caused the pain to flare up, lower back and calf pain.
In August 2017 I had some nerve pain in lower back, pain in my left calf resulting from herniation, balance issues due to numb left foot. I’d stopped doing any type of exercise except walking. I was fearful to bend forward fully.
Now, in late November my balance is much better. We have been working to strengthen my left side and left foot and it has been successful. We worked on strengthening my inner core, which is something I’d never done before. This has helped strengthen my back greatly. I have learned how to tilt/scoop/stretch to alleviate any back discomfort.
New activities – I can now do most of a yoga class with no pain. I can carefully carry heavy things, having learned better body mechanics. My posture is improving due to targeted exercises. My balance on my left side is much better, as we’ve worked together to tweak exercises specific to my needs. I can now swim laps, lift small weights, do yoga and look forward to continuing to increase my physical activity.
Erica has been instrumental in my recovery from a complex cervical surgery. When I first came to this office I was in pain and wearing a cervical collar. I had an extremely limited range of motion in my neck. It is now 4 months since that visit, and I am feeling well and
confident in performing ALL my daily activities. My range of motion and muscle strength have returned. I am back enjoying my favorite activities like teaching, swimming, hiking, and walking longer distances.
Erica always welcomed me with a smile and made me feel cared for. She developed and implemented a treatment plan to meet my needs and goals. Her expertise and excellent interpersonal communication and organization skills made it easy for me to be engaged. I was motivated to work hard! Erica genuinely cares for her patients. I always looked forward to my next session.
I am thankful to Erica for the tools that she has provided me to manage my daily routine and pain. I am now ready to move on to my next step.
Erica is magical! Not only is she exceptionally competent, but she is extremely patient and personable. I suffer from chronic, acute bouts of sciatic, piriformis ant. I have joint pain and discomfort. Sometimes these are brought on by exercise (Pickleball), yet other times these seem to start with no known origin.
Not only has Erica removed my current pain but has equipped me with new, creative exercises & tools to be proactive in my wellness journey. Thank you Erica + Hayes PT. I know this will be a lifelong partnership!
