So here you are sitting in Dr. Mascilak’s (Dr. Gary’s) waiting room about to begin physical therapy. If you’re like me, and have never been to physical therapy before, you might be wondering if PT is going to be of any value. I mean what can they do? Stretch a couple of muscles? Put some heat or ice on you, some ultra sound? I mean, really, is this going to be worth the time and money I’m about to spend? The answer is YES, YES, YES!!!!! I had a lot of doubts coming to PT but let me tell you Dr. Gary is an amazing doctor. He is incredibly knowledgeable and explains exactly what he is doing and why he is doing it. You will leave PT learning so much about how your own body functions and why you need to continue the exercises he prescribes at home. The entire staff at Integrated Health Professionals is terrific. They all care about their patients and work with them for the best results possible. You might be wondering at this point what happened to me that I had to go for PT. I had bilateral knee replacement, (both knees replaced at the same time). I had my left hip replaced. I tore my left rotator cuff. I badly bruised my right rotator cuff. These were all separate injuries. After each surgery or injury I started PT as soon as possible. It was hard work but the results were amazing. Today I am doing great! I know without Dr. Gary’s expertise and his experienced staff, I would not have recovered as quickly or maybe not at all. I am doing things today which I couldn’t do for years because of the excellent care I received at Integrated Health Professionals.
Do yourself a BIG FAVOR start PT. Give it four or five visits and I promise, you will see an incredible difference from day one.
Dr. Tom – This letter is intended to thank you but also to help other patients to make a decision that I know can only benefit them in a healthy and safe way. When you think about it,, why wouldn’t you make that choice? We are so prone to taking medication because it is being prescribed by a medical professional and we have done this all our lives, ultimately we actually fear anything different. If there is something to fear, logically it should be on the side of taking medication.
So here is my story. I was only slightly overweight by most standards and if I looked up my ideal weight, I fell within the norm for my height and bone structure. My problem was my cholesterol. It was total of 230. I was prescribed medication three years ago and told that I would have to stay on the medication for the REST OF MY LIFE. After being on the medication I was required to go for blood tests every two months or so to monitor the damage being done to my liver.
So I started to think about this and here is what I imagined. I am 65 or 70 years old and cannot afford my cholesterol medication. What I also cannot afford is the other medication that I am now on to combat the damage done to my body from the cholesterol medication that I have been on for years. So I took myself off the medication for about a year or so. When I went for another blood work up my levels rose quite significantly to 292!
- My bad cholesterol level dropped 42 points when I had another blood test after one month.
- I lost 22 lobs of fat from my body in three months
- I do not experience joint aches like I did which I attributed to aging
- I have better sleep habits
- I do not feel tired all the time
- I have so much more energy
- I also have (had) an essential tremor which the symptoms have disappeared.
- My skin looks better
- I am no longer addicted to pasta, potato chips and coffee
- I went to a family gathering recently and was told I looked like I did before I had children, my oldest is 24 and I am a grandmother
My name is Paul Costello. I came to Dr. Tom 7 months ago. I had high blood pressure, very bad cholesterol, back pain, and was overweight. Dr. Tom put me on a program that enabled me to detox my body, regulate my meals without diet. I lost 26 pounds I am off the cholesterol medicine and my blood pressure is better. In physical therapy they showed me how to strengthen my core which has reduced my back pain to next to nothing. They gave me the discipline I needed and it worked. I come here at least one time a week to make sure I stay on track. Great people that care and work with my busy schedule. I would recommend this group to anyone and everyone!
