A lot of great therapists are out there doing great work and seeing impressive results. Thanks to Sangini for sharing this testimonial!

“Postural Restoration has been a Godsend. I used to run marathons and lift weights daily until I injured my back in Iraq, resulting in multiple herniated discs and constant severe muscle spasms in my entire back. For two years I could not move without literally gasping in pain. I tried drugs, chiropractic, acupuncture, steroid shots, and every other type of physical therapy there was. At best, these didn’t help; at worst, they increased the pain. I was on the verge of getting discharged from the military and had resigned myself to a life of pain and extremely limited mobility. Finally, I moved back to NC and my primary care doctor recommended me to Apex Physical Therapy.  Within THREE visits, I no longer needed to take my pain medication daily!  I am infinitely better now, and am even training to swim the Ironman this year with the NC National Guard team! I honestly love everything about Apex Physical Therapy. Sangini gives me exercises to do at home, and customizes them for me based on what I need, so that I can use them on the road with no equipment when I need to. I never thought I’d sound like such a commercial, but I enthusiastically recommend that every single person with pain comes in to experience the transformation from just enduring every minute, to actually looking forward to each day!”

Ron Hruska, Jason Masek and Gregory Parfianowicz will be traveling to Warsaw this September to present at the 1st International Congress of Polish Rehabilitation. This presentation follows Michal Niedzielski and Gregory Parfianowicz successful instruction of our Myokinematic Restoration course last year. We are excited about the continued expansion of Postural Restoration in Poland and the opportunity to educate internationally!  

“The Congress will be held on September 10 – 13, 2009 at the University of Economics and Computer Science in Warsaw. The outstanding specialists in rehabilitation and physiotherapy, physicians dealing with these branches, researchers and students of rehabilitation and physiotherapy from academic centres worldwide will participate in the Congress. We expect around 1000 participants from Poland and other countries (it is worth mentioning that there are over 20,000 specialists in physiotherapy and rehabilitation in Poland). Apart from scientific sessions and the widely understood context of physiotherapy and rehabilitation, we are planning to organize Therapeutic Panel Meetings.” For more information, click here.
