I felt pain in my back and hips from arthritis. I started PT at the beginning of December. I had not been doing any exercises prior to that because of the pain. After 5 weeks I feel much better. I have more confidence in my walking. I am using much less anti-inflammatory medication. I am using my shopping cart less. Mel has been very patient in explaining things and very knowledgeable. I am glad I came. -Shelly P.
