My therapy with Carrie was one of the few things that has helped my chronic pain in my right hip. Working with her helped me get back to my sports activities faster and stronger.

My therapy with Carrie was one of the few things that has helped my chronic pain in my right hip. Working with her helped me get back to my sports activities faster and stronger.

I am a 73 year old female who has been using Carrie Ciaverelli as my physical therapist for at least five years and exclusively for the last three or four years. I have mostly back issues including cervical neuropathy, bulging discs, degenerative arthritic changes, scoliosis and, most recently, compression of the spine in the thoracic area. I have always been adamant about not having surgery. I know several people who have had one surgery after another with less than satisfactory results. Carrie has been immensely helpful to me. She has created a program of exercises in the water for me with a great deal of core work. A strong core is essential for a healthier back. There are also exercises which assist in strengthening muscles, help with balance and stretching. All of these exercises are crucial in my staying strong. She has also assisted me in picking out all of my own equipment used in doing these exercises.

I trust Carrie and her judgement. I would recommend her as a knowledgeable, capable and caring physical therapist. She will always be my therapist.
