I was diagnosed with an illness and had to have surgery. As a result, I was very sick and in the hospital for almost two months. I couldn’t walk or even move by myself without help. My muscles were very, very weak. When I came to Gulf Coast Therapy, I was using a walker. I am happy to say I don’t need a walker anymore and the staff here helped me to get my strength back. They encouraged me and they gave me the confidence I needed to push myself further. All the ladies at Gulf Coast Therapy are really friendly and nice. They laugh with you and make you feel good about yourself again. I love those guys! Gulf Coast Therapy has most definitely helped me achieve the goal of getting my physical well being back to where it used to be. Thank you Ashley, Bee, Summer, Leslie, Stella, Jaye, Jordan, and Christina, you guys are the best!
First and foremost, I wanted to offer a sincere Thank you to all members of Gulf Coast Therapy for your high level of commitment and caring support.
From my initial visit, I was impressed by the types of exercises that I was introduced to. What a difference they made in my daily living skills and range of motion over the following weeks. I experienced different modalities and they answered all my questions.
GCT has a relaxed and professional approach to treating their patients. Thank you for giving me hope. Physical therapy is hard work and it takes teamwork. They made me feel as if I was part of that team and continue to provide excellent care.
Before I started therapy, I could hardly lift my left arm to put my blouses on because I had injured my shoulder. Now after four days I have full motion of my arm and just minor pain. The pain before treatment was so severe I was on the verge of taking pain pills. Now I don’t have to.
I began therapy walking on a cane and in severe pain in my right hip. The first day Christina worked with me, I was so much better I could not believe it. After the second treatment, I was walking without a cane. I am now three weeks in treatment and seen once a week. I am so much better I can hardly believe it. What started out to be 10-15 on a pain scale is now barely a 1. Thank you so much girls.
Thanks to the physical therapy care I received at Gulf Coast Therapy, I went from not being able to walk at all after my stroke, to walking unassisted. I also had limited mobility in my left side and a weak left hand. The occupational therapy I received was a blessing in gaining most of my mobility back.
I had dim hopes of being back to what I once was before I was in the hospital, but Ashley, Leslie, Summer and Bee worked hard with me, and pushed me to prevail and overcome. Thank you to the nice ladies at the front desk for your friendliness and assisting with my scheduled appointments.
I am especially impressed by and grateful to all the folks at Gulf Coast Therapy! Before I started physical therapy at Gulf Coast Therapy, I was leading a pretty sedentary life–not by choice, but as a result of a “bad bounce” and subsequent surgery to put a pin in my femur. Due to the amazing expert and extremely encouraging assistance of Ashley, Bee, Christina, and Summer, I have gained a great deal of strength, flexibility, balance, and stamina. I am much more confident and secure about being able to resume the tasks and leisure activities I enjoyed before (including beachcombing, walking my dog, swimming and thinking about walking a 5K in the not too distant future.) During each therapy session I was able to face and overcome new challenges with the support of these knowledgeable, caring professionals, who often added a dose of humor or a verse of spontaneous song to make difficult tasks a bit more fun. Jaye and Stella, who manage the administrative details of the office, certainly contribute to the positive, relaxed atmosphere at Gulf Coast Therapy. Its a great place to come and work on getting your lifestyle back! Thanks so much everyone!
I was very stubborn about attending therapy for my knee injury. Finally, I decided to find some help to relieve the pain and resume a more active life. The Gulf Coast Therapy group soon had me feeling like one of the family. It is a casual and friendly atmosphere that I appreciate very much.
My knee has improved greatly! I have an issue with my neck mobility. I trust that this group will solve this and any future issues that may arise. I highly recommend Gulf Coast Therapy to feel better and stronger.
I had a torn ACL and Meniscus surgery and went to GCT to take care of my rehab. They did an excellent job getting me back in shape before my F.M.L.A. stopped. The staff is very professional and really know their job. We worked extra hard on getting the knee back in shape. I am very happy with the work they did. I was guided and trained to do extra work at home. The people are friendly and very good. I would recommend anyone who needs rehab to go there. I want to tell them all thank you.
I was extremely dubious of the value of physical therapy. I had what I felt was pain in the 5-6/10 range in my left knee and hip. And immediately before starting physical therapy my lower back began hurting. The pain was not letting me get a full nights sleep and never a fully comfortable sleep. After the first three sessions, I was sleeping all night and awakening with little or no lingering pain. I can only hope the results continue.
When I first began therapy, my right hand was very sore but most of all very stiff. I had previous experience since I had my left hand done three years ago. I didn’t have therapy then so I am glad I agreed to do therapy on my right hand. I can tell its going to make a big difference in the day to day use (ability to have a normal hand) of my hand. The varied exercises and therapies will make a huge difference in my quality of life. Many thanks to Leslie Davis, Cindy and the staff of GCT for assisting me in my successful recovery from surgery.
