Nancy was diagnosed with Benign Positional Vertigo, a condition in which a person develops a sudden sensation of spinning, usually when moving the head. When her physician recommended physical therapy, Nancy started services at Roxboro Physical Therapy. She currently participates in the Alumni Program. Here is her story:
I had been to Roxboro Physical Therapy before [after back surgery], so I immediately thought I would come back [for vertigo treatment]. I actually stopped on my way home from the doctor’s office, and they scheduled my appointments and told me what to expect. But everything was even better than I expected!
The first few times I came to physical therapy, my husband had to help me or even lead me in because I was so dizzy, even when I kept my eyes closed. I started to see that I was getting better, so I was eager to come back. I enjoyed the people and being there on time to have as much time with them as possible. When I finished, I started the Alumni Program. They were so patient and taught me how to use all of the weight machines.
I’m amazed at what they did for me and they way they did it. Every step I took, I got better. Everybody was so good to me; they were so patient and didn’t rush me. They started my visits on time, and they wanted me to be there. They spent the entire visit with me, or longer. They stood with me to make sure I did everything right. They were there if I needed them and would even bring me water if I wanted it. I don’t know where you could go to find any better staff!
