REM has been a lifesaver for me. When I first started my physical therapy with them, I had fallen a few times, was unsteady on my feet, unable to stand from a chair without using my arms, careening into walls in my home, and had terrible pain in my heels. I thought I would not be able to perform the ordinary movements in day-to-day life without being afraid and that I would fall or be restricted to a chair.
The physical therapists at REM have taught me how to walk and turn correctly, given me stretching and strengthening exercises and worked on my visual and brain coordination to improve my movement disorders.
As a result, I am not afraid of falling in my home and am more confident when I leave the house. I can now stand from sitting in a chair without using my arms, can walk more steadily, and can turn while walking without the fear of tangling up my feet. My walking/scanning ability has improved. The stretching exercises have eliminated my heel pain.
The therapists at REM are concerned, caring and compassionate and tailor sessions to the individual. I appreciate that they take the time to thoroughly explain how each exercise benefits me
Life is better with REM!
