Yolande Sterling accomplished a 5K run benefiting the Susan G
Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
"She quickly diagnosed my knee problem and explained to me what the issue was and how to prevent this from happening again. The exercises that she showed me really helped to strengthen my knee and reduced my chances of injuring myself again. I am now more conscious of my body and have increased strength and improved body mechanics."
Rebecca Bassin accomplished the Cinderella Classic, a 100-kilometer women-only ride that takes place each Spring in the East Bay.
"My rheumatologist referred me to Adrian at Golden Gate Physical Therapy to work on stabilization and core strength development and to help me manage chronic joint pain due to Ehlers Danlos, a Hypermobility Syndrome. Although I love spending time on my bike and on the slopes skiing, a recent flare up had me out of commission and doing limited activity. Adrian has shown me exercises and techniques that have helped me become more active once again. The combination of stabilization exercises and manual therapy have gotten me back on track."
"The therapists and staff at Golden Gate Physical Therapy are not only highly trained, but they are committed to their patients. I have never been in an environment where the therapist is the person working with you for the full session. Having been in and out of physical therapy for many years, I consider myself somewhat of an expert at this point!"
Doris Cohen needed to be able to walk and sit without back/hip pain.
"One day as I was walking, I had terrible pain in my lower back. After much resting and taking pain relievers, my doctor suggested seeing Myra. She changed my life. Im now much more conscious of standing straight, carry less weight and think. I look and feel younger than when I first came to see her."
Steve Booth returned to 100% throwing capabilities and gained flexibility in his throwing shoulder.
"I suffered a Labrum tear on 8/04. I was misdiagnosed and did not have surgery until 2/05. By 6/05 I threw 120 feet. It took pushing the limits, having swell-ups (inflammation) and being worked back into shape by Adrian to be where Im at today. Hes going to say I worked hard, and I did. But those days I went in when I didnt want to move and got fixed up, I was able to recover that much faster for the next day. Within 8-9 months I was 100% with more flexibility and whip on my throws. Thanks."
