    “I first started coming to Dr. Terry for my lower back pain. I had a hard time lifting and sleeping. Now after a few months of therapy I am doing so much better. Thanks to all the great therapy I'm back to being more active and sleeping better. All I can say is thank you to everyone who helped me get better.”

    “I injured my right shoulder doing a seated twist pose in my yoga class. I went for about three weeks trying to ignore the pain in my shoulder but it got so bad that I could not sleep at night for the extreme pain. I couldn't sweep or put dishes away, couldn't push a shopping cart or carry anything. Extreme for me! I came to Terry's Physical Therapy wondering and hoping they could help me without surgery or cortisone injections. After a very thorough range of motion (ROM) evaluation Dr. Terry formulated a plan of recovery, but he said NO yoga for about 8 weeks. Oh no! I complied, I don't want to be my own worst enemy. After the first week of all the therapy and home exercises I felt a HUGE relief. I was able to sleep through the night without extreme pain. I still couldn't lift anything or vacuum etc., but I continued as prescribed and after the 8-9 week therapy I am now actually better than before I injured myself because the injury was on top of a 10 year chronic condition of debilitated ROM in my right shoulder and upper arm that got much better also. Dr. DeLeon's vision into what is happening in a person's body is amazing I wonder if he has x-ray vision! I am very grateful to Dr. Terry and Dr. DeLeon and all the patient therapy techs that helped me through this shoulder crisis. and YES I am back on the mat in yoga.”

    “When I Came in Dr. Terry’s office I had trouble walking straight getting in and out of my vehicle. I couldn’t sleep with the pain, I would wake up because of the pain in my hip and leg. Now I’m feeling much better and the pain is minimal. I want to thank Dr. Terry and all his staff – especially all of my friends Mike, Andy, and Samantha which were a blessing with God’s help making my pain lessen. May the Lord help and Bless all of you. Thank you for everything. P.S. Thank you Letty, Bibi and Stephanie.”

Dr. Terry, and all staff was helpful in getting my balance back and my strength . Thanks to Terry PT I’m walking again. They were wonderful to me.”

    “When I first came into Terry Physical Therapy, My level of pain was intense. Because of my age and weight I didn’t believe therapy would help. However, after several therapy sessions, I feel that this therapy really helped me. I came in with scoliosis, thinking my pain would get worse. By keeping up with my exercises at home, I find myself being more agile and my level of movement has improved tremendously. Terry Physical Therapy is indeed an awesome program. I can now do many things I couldn’t so before to include one of my favorite activities, Gardening!”

    “The pain in my shoulder started a year ago in May of 2015. I tried tylenol for a few days until I went to the doctor. The person who took care of me gave me muscle relaxant pills and pain pills, it didn't work. Throughout the year I kept going with the same problem but the only thing available to me was pain medication. A couple of times I suggested maybe therapy might help but no one suggested referring me to a therapist. Shots to my shoulder were suggested but I didn't want that because I knew it wouldn't solve the problem, the pain would come back. I finally put my fist down and let them know that I was going to another doctor even if I had to pay out of pocket since the insurance didn't cover a different doctor. They finally heard me and referred me here. In 6 weeks I am able to do my housework, dress myself , garden, and bed. I am back to normal. My social life is back to normal my anxiety is at a low point. From 2 pills a day I am down to 1/2 a pill every 24 hours. The pain pills I was taking when I first started my therapy were not needed after a week of therapy.”

When I came in it hurt to pull pallets to the floor. When I came in I could not sleep at night. Now I can work and sit with no pain.”

I was unable to walk for a long period of time after 8 weeks of physical therapy at Terry's PT. I am now able to function without pain and discomfort. I received exceptional care from staff.

I also couldn't even scrub my back in the shower which now I can, my shoulder is a lot better, plus his staff are awesome very nice people to be around with. I would and will recommend everyone to come to his office. NOTE: I want to bring my mother who is 89 years old for her knees to be fixed. A place where you set your appts.”

    “I am so thankful for Terry Physical Therapy because they gave me an opportunity to work on strengthening my muscles before I had neck surgery. I had known that I had a severe neck problem since late 2013. My orthopedic surgeon told me not to come back until I was ready to have my discs fused when Jennifer came to our park. I thought I would give PT a try at least I would be doing something, not just wasting time. The whole staff were very friendly and helpful. I will possibly come back for more PT after my neck is healed and the surgeon okays it. Thank you so very much.”

I am so satisfied and happy with Terry Physical Therapy I referred my son and I will refer EVERYBODY here. Everyone here is so pleasant I really enjoy coming.”

I felt that I was never going to get well. After 2 months I feel great! I could not walk very good and I was very unhappy.

    “I came to PT for help with herniated discs in my neck that were causing extreme pain in my shoulder and back. I am a 28 year old mother of 4 year old twin boys and need to be able to play with & pick up my sons without feeling like my back is ripping apart! The pain would wake me up at night, I had trouble moving my arm, and had terrible pain when moving my neck. The awesome staff at Terry PT worked with me and have helped to greatly improve the condition of my neck, which has reduced the pain in my shoulder and back tremendously. I'm very grateful for the therapy experience I've had here. If anyone I know ever needs physical therapy I will surely recommend they come to this fantastic establishment. Thank you!”

    “I came to Terry PT with severe sciatica. I found daily activities very painful. I had never been to a physical therapist so unsure what could be done to help my specific condition. Today 4 weeks and 12 sessions later my pain has been reduced but as importantly my flexibility has improved and along with previously prescribed pulmonary arterial hypertension medication. I find daily activities and walking longer distances increases with less pain. My flexibility and muscle strength is much improved. The therapy assistants as well as Dr. Terry were always concerned with my pain tolerance and so genuine that therapy was more joy than tense. Thank you all!”

    “From the very first phone call to inquire about TPT services & using my insurance I have been treated with professionalism, friendliness, & compassion. Seeing Dr. Terry for initial assessment was a comprehensive eval. He created a treatment plan for my needs & special exercises/therapy modalities. The staff all possess great personalities & engage patients in conversation while ensuring exercises are done correctly. You even get a floor show on occasion, you know who you are. Prior to treatment I couldn't raise my left arm above shoulder level. Now all the way straight up with increasing strength. Able now to cook, do laundry, dress by myself which wasn't possible. and after only 8 weeks of therapy. Impressed with you all & as a seasoned healthcare worker, that ain't easy!”

    “I began coming to Terry Physical Therapy a few weeks ago because I was having problems with one hip. It felt like it was dislocated and I had difficulty walking. The pain was very intense. We began with stretches and hip strengthening exercises which I would never have thought of doing myself. These were very helpful. After a few weeks, with two or three sessions each week my pain began to subside. Two young men named Mike and Andy worked with me. They gave me a list of exercises I could do at home in between therapy sessions. Dr. Deleon evaluated my problem at the beginning and looked in on my sessions several times. He did a careful evaluation at the end. Everyone was well informed and proficient in what they did for me. All staff members are friendly and caring. It was a very positive experience.”

    “First of all I want to thank Terry's Physical Therapy for making me feel complete again. When I decided to do my surgery on my shoulder was because I was always in so much pain and I was held back from doing a lot of things with my arm. Right away from the start I knew I had chosen the right place for my therapy because as soon as I left my doctors office i a call from this clinic letting me know that I was already set up for my therapy. On my first session I knew that it was to be painful but I was willing to do everything they wanted me to do because I knew it was for my own good. The therapists were always very good to me and always made sure I was doing everything right so that it would always benefit me. By my second week I could already see such a big difference on my shoulder. My ROM is so much better and I'm able to do a lot of things and hadn't been able to do. I truly recommend this place because of their outstanding work and their awesome customer service.”

Driving and checking the view on my left side was hard and painful for me to do. Now the pain has left me and I am able to do all the above things and more. Things I never knew was connected to my neck. I also am going to miss the wonderful staff. They have made me feel as part of their family. Thanks for everything!”

    “I started the New Year (2017) with the Terry Physical Therapy team. After investing time in late 2016 on a high ankle sprain with the Doc's and PT's at Terry, I have really improved my range of motion and strength with a strength and mobility focused program. I am very happy with staff and facilities at Terry Physical Therapy. During the last month I have had great results. Now stepping up the PT regime, I'm going to have to keep up with my homework and that is a great way to learn a new healthy routine for 2017. The staff is very helpful, positive , friendly and personal and has a very supportive outlook. I enjoyed going to Terry Physical Therapy to work with so many nice people. Thanks to @terryphysicaltherapy, I am learning and enjoying progress on the road to rehabilitation. Thanks Terry. Wish you the best.”

    “ACL + meniscus repair surgery in Oct. 2016, arrived at Terry PT midway through Dec. 2016. I came into Terry PT with a lot of discomfort and pain. I was still wearing the large knee brace and i was barely able to squat or walk with out the brace. I was behind in my recovery process at the end of 2 months post-op. I was still having trouble achieving flexion past 110 degrees and I still had an approximate 3 degree of quad lag, I couldn't achieve full extension. after about 3 weeks of therapy with Dr. Terry, I noticed improvements all around. I was FINALLY out of my brace and walking on my own. I noticed my quad muscle on the affected leg became bigger firmer and more responsive. Most importantly I felt confident about my recovery progress and hopeful/excited to become stronger. Thank you for your help!”

Now after 14 sessions I am almost pain free and can walk much longer distances. The treatments certainly have helped a lot, and the stretches/exercises I did in therapy and continue to do at home were & are beneficial. Working with the therapists at Terry PT was an enjoyable experience. Their efficiency and friendliness was very much appreciated. Thanks to the office staff who were helpful and jovial as well.”

I am able to do household chores that I no longer did before I had my accident. Now I even surprise myself. I continue doing the exercises at home when I do come to therapy because I have found that it really helps me. Coming here was the best decision my family doctor could of (given) told me to do.”

Standing in one place for over 15 minutes was not possible. Now after several weeks of therapy here at Dr. Terry's I can walk the block with little or no pain. I can also wash the dishes for my wife, also with out the pain I had before. If my problems come back I will gladly come back here. The staff was wonderful and I feel so much better. Thank you all.”

    “What results I got from this therapy were different than I expected. I didn't know my legs would improve so much because of my sciatica nerve problem. They got stronger and stronger which makes it easier for me to go up steps and walk. The exercises I do at home make me feel I am in control of my body and how it works. Gives me confidence!!! The people here were so patient and helpful - couldn't ask for better all the way from Dr. Terry to each one I dealt with.”

You must be commended for the staff in your employ - always pleasant and encouraging. Such upbeat attitudes from everyone made the pain more tolerable.

    “When I was released from in patient rehab, it was very hard to walk any distance or keep up stamina to work on household tasks. The bones were healing in my right pelvis, but my soft tissues were restricting my motion and I was requiring a walker. As I received therapy, my mobility increased rapidly and I moved from a wheeled walker to a four wheeled rolling chair. After a month and half I was able to walk most places and in most situations without extra support. With more therapy I have been able to reduce incidental pain and get back to work as a substitute teacher. It was clearly worth the investment.”

Now after 12 sessions, I am able to do everything I want with minimal pain in my back. even then, it will go away if I do a few stretches. Thanks to Andy, Mike, & the amazing staff for helping me become a vibrant 66 year old again!”

    “When I started treatments on March 7, 2016 my score was 30. Among other things my neck mobility was very weak. I had trouble turning around while backing up the car. Now (March 17) after 6 one hour treatments my score is 5 and I have very little pain and much improved neck mobility. The exercises/stretches that have been sent home seem very beneficial. The physical therapists were efficient and friendly. even the office staff were amiable. Overall a very pleasurable experience.”

    “I was in constant pain, starting in my back on the right side and down my hip and thigh. I could not sit , stand, or lay down without crying from pain. After two visits to emergency room at the hospital, I was told to get a family Dr. to follow up. I went to "Family Health center of Mission" and was referred to "Terry Physical Therapy". Since coming to PT I went from pain level of a 10 to a 1 or 2 pain level depending on the activity. Now I am able to do pretty much anything. I plan to continue the exercises I was taught to keep strong & mobile. I highly recommend "Terry Physical Therapy" and the excellent staff I have experienced.”

    “Before coming to Dr. Terry my movements were not comfortable. Had to concentrate before lifting a small clothes basket. It is much easier now. Putting dishes up in the cupboard is simple now 2-3 plates at a time. Before treatment was a chore. Now can do it automatically I’m also able to stand longer – not perfect but definitely better. I would highly recommend Dr. terry and his staff. They are great!”
