Carmen C. overcame hip pain and is now back to the activities she loves!
“Around early March of 2017, my orthopedic surgeon told me I needed left hip replacement. For several reasons, I could not have the surgery until early October. I knew the summer would be a long, painful one. Seeking some pain relief, I started seeing Cynthia Weiss after another doctor suggested physical therapy. To be honest, I did not see how physical therapy would help since my left cartilage was practically gone, but I decided to give Cynthia a try. After my first visit, I walked out of her office practically without limping. In subsequent visits, she not only taught me various exercises to strengthen muscles that support my hips but she also helped me improve my posture, how to sit down; how to get up from a chair and many other every-day practices to alleviate my discomfort. I also learned how all of these exercises and practices impact my hips. Thanks to Cynthia, I could enjoy my summer with the added benefit of having a stronger hip going into surgery.”

Pascale C. increased mobility, improved flexibility and alignment, decreased pain and discomfort
I met Cynthia Weiss of Wellness Rehabilitation Inc. in 10/2020, about 1 or 2 weeks after a diagnosis of lumbago with sciatica on my right side after injuring myself at a gym and from chronic stress. I had started having severe, excruciating low back pain that left me unable to find a comfortable sitting or resting position; numbness or tingling, burning, shooting pains that radiated down my right leg; trouble sleeping, walking, standing or exercising; and with limited relief from the traditional methods of medications, heat/cold treatments and medicated patches. I was a wreck and was desperately looking for any kind of relief. I just couldn’t see myself going back to my original PT who had assisted with a knee and IT band injury. I wanted long term relief and home exercises that were going to strengthen my core, eliminate my pain and allow me to consistently exercise. I did a search to find a new PT and coincidentally found Cynthia was in my office building – a definite convenience for appointments! Cynthia made some quick assessments and began to give me exercises as well as treatments to help alleviate my back and leg pains. I met with her weekly then switched to biweekly as my condition improved. She gave me recommendations for everything from the right shoes to the right mattress, from pillows and rolls for my back and neck to a roller or tennis balls to loosen my muscles around my spine, and from balloons to improve my stress relief and breathing to advising me on how to set up my office or my car seat. I have daily stretches and alterations to typical exercises to use to strengthen my posture, abs, back muscles, lower my “zoom neck”, and make it easier for me to work with the children in my private psychotherapy practice. In addition to how she instructs me, reading her email newsletter has also given me insights and information. I have benefited with increased mobility, improved flexibility and alignment, decreased pain and discomfort, and better sleep and movement. I realized this weekend when working out in my garden and dancing in my kitchen to one of my favorite 80s dance hits as well as hearing from an orthopedist “keep doing what you are doing because it’s working” just how much PT has helped me to move more freely, confidently keep up my exercise routines, and function with confidence. I have also lost 35 lbs! Thanks Cynthia! I couldn’t have done it without you!
