Prior to working with Matt, I'd had a poor experience with the typical Ortho / PT process. Long wait times, bad bedside manner, big bills, dispassionate care givers and ultimately lackluster results.
I had acute shoulder pain at the time I had reached out to Matt for a diagnosis, and I wanted to determine how serious the injury was, and whether it would be okay to play beach volleyball in the upcoming season. I'm an active person, but I know that it's important to listen to your body, and my shoulder was pinching and sore.
I'd let the initial pain subside, but I still did not feel 100%. Matt was able to quickly diagnose tendonitis in the rotator cuff after about 30 minutes of observations.
What I enjoyed about working with Matt, is that he took the time to explain physiologically what was happening with my tendon, how the movements work between the shoulder blade and muscles, and advised me on a course of action to get me back to my goal of playing volleyball.
Matt was professional throughout our 6 session engagement. Great followup, great communication, super knowledgable and authentically invested in my progress.
Since seeing Matt, my tendonitis dissipated within weeks. I was back on the volleyball court without missing a game. I subsequently received care for two unrelated nagging injuries, achilles tendonitis and a tight ankle from a sprain. Matt created a bespoke routine to address all three injuries allowing me to run, skateboard and gain confidence to push my body by helping me create resiliency.
For anyone who has had issues with the typical health care protocol when it comes to endless x-rays, MRIs, and unengaged physicians, I strongly recommend working with Matt to help you achieve your mobility goals.
