Our Patient's Success Stories:
Parkinson's Symptoms Treated Here should be the billboard for this facility. When I arrived a year ago my left arm was near useless and my left leg hardly functional. My depression was growing; because I saw no way that my decline was ever going to reverse. I had seen others slowly succumb to this deadly disease. Not so for me now. After treatment by therapist Robert Dragan, there are now only minor outward symptoms.
Robert's model is that the brain is able to take new routes to control and direct our muscular activity, and he has proven it with me. Once this was shown as a possibility to me, I became willing to try and deal with my other symptoms, one by one. Confidence returned and my overall mood improved. With his encouragement and pushing, my daily activity, Robert did what I see as a miracle for me! If anyone with Parkinson's needs help this is the place to go.
Robert Dragan's treatment varies with the need. For me there were no mindless repetitive movement exercises, such as most PT specialists hand out as you depart. Just simple and easy movements, that I could see improving each day. Tai Chi was the introduction to show that arms and legs could be controlled despite the nervous system damage done by Parkinson's.
At the Rehab Point facility there is an unimaginable (at least compared to other PT facilities) variety of diagnostic and treatment devices. The staff is professional, highly friendly and personable. There is careful and thorough evaluation of the client, initially and then periodically. Much of the evaluation is measured objectively and repeatable, with printed results.
Without real knowledge of other ailments that are treated here, this is a great place to get help with Parkinson's.
“When I came to PT the first time, I had lost my balance so as to fall into walls, stagger like a drunk. I was unsure of myself – although I never fell down, but came close. During my sessions, I have noticed improvement. The things I was taught… and simple things to do to fix the problem. I think the most important thing I was shown as time went on, I lost my FEAR. That seemed to be a great concern to me. On top of that – a great crew to work with."
