Success Stories

    Philadelphia, PA

    I have been suffering with a stiff back for more than a year and then the pain started shooting down my left leg and into my hip. After seeing a back specialist, the doctor felt that physical therapy would help me greatly.

    I went to NovaCare on Bainbridge Street solely because it was on my insurance plan and close to my house. I had never heard of them before. Boy, did I luck out. My case was assigned to Rudy Pineda, P.T., DPT, who truly became my lifesaver. Not only does he know his stuff thoroughly, he has an infectious positive attitude, which kept me going all through my treatment. He listened carefully to all that was happening with me and made adjustments accordingly. I slowly improved over time.

    Besides his great office care, he gave me exercises to be done at home, which were easy to understand. Sadly, my insurance benefits have run out, but I am confident that with what Rudy taught me I will be able to continue my progress. I am even planning on returning on my own dime every few weeks to continue my work with him. I have gone from constant pain to intermittent pain, which is a huge improvement all thanks to Rudy. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I found him.
