Meet Tera… Physical Therapy & Pilates Solved Her Sciatica





How Long Did You Wait To Come To CORE?

I waited about 4 months, from the first initial Discovery Session, and then I knew why I was waiting… [Allyson] Why were you waiting?… I was waiting for my flex account to fund because that started in September and I came in I think in May…

What Were Your Problems?

I had sciatica sort of problems and hip flexor, tight hip flexors and 50 different things. Those were the things that brought me in, for sciatica and hip flexor tightness…

What Was Your Sciatica Causing You To Miss Out On?

I was missing out on going to walk with my new puppy, hiking and standing for long periods of time to cook or do anything outside that I wanted to do that was kind of athletic. So I pretty much quit doing all of that…

What Else Did You Try Before Coming To CORE?

I tried Chiropractic, massage and other Physical Therapy types and anti-inflammatory diet, and other stuff I can’t remember…

What Did You Think Physical Therapy At CORE Would Do For You?

When I have had PT before I always thought that I would be able to just do a few and it would fix it. I didn’t keep up with it well enough or the things were too hard or they were something that I didn’t have time for, or didn’t have the equipment for and I didn’t stick with it. So I thought PT was too much trouble and then when I came here I continued with the Pilates and that made it a lot easier to keep up…

What Would You Tell Someone With Sciatica That Is Skeptical About Physical Therapy?

I would tell them that they really need to come see Allyson and get that looked at. She can help you to be able to work through whatever your problem is and then give you good follow up to continue to heal from whatever it is that is the problem. I thought I was just going to come in for 3 or 4 or 5 times or whatever it was at first, but then I see the usefulness in continuing to come in for check ups (with Allyson for PT while continuing in our Pilates classes)…

What Did You Like Most About Coming To See Us At CORE?

I liked PT at CORE because you guys work together with Pilates Instructors and you understand, you can see how my body moves in Pilates and understand. You guys work together and understand how it is working for me when I try to actually move in Pilates or just do life function things…

What Were Your Goals With Coming To Physical Therapy At CORE?

Pain reduction and being able to stand up straight… [Allyson] Can you walk your dog?… I can walk my dog! Yeah, now I can keep up with my dog a lot better… [Allyson] Standing in the kitchen?… Standing and cooking in the kitchen, standing in the kitchen, mostly I was having a lot of trouble with stirring things and leaning over the counters and things and now that I know how to hold my shoulder in the right position, I move in a different way that is stronger…

These video testimonials are why we do what we do! We went to Physical Therapy School to be able to help people in a one on one, individualized basis to help our clients reach their goals. To actually spend time with the client, get to know them and build a relationship is what its all about. And these are the exact reasons that I did not go to Medical School and I am so glad that I went to PT school. But most importantly, we figured out a way to navigate the changing healthcare system and serve our clients first…

If you would like to take the NEXT STEP with your back pain or sciatica, then it is time to reach out to us at 512-215-4227 and tell us your story…

We will listen and then make recommendations from there. Our recommendation would vary from: you sound like a good fit for what we do, let’s book a Phone Consult or an in studio Discovery Session with a Physical Therapist… They are both Free… or you are not a good fit for what we do, we will provide the names of some other Physical Therapist in the area.

Thanks for looking and have a great day…
