Several months after cervical spinal surgery I had yet to regain the range of motion I wanted, so I asked my primary care physician “What’s next?” I’d tried traditional Physical therapy, so I was skeptical when she handed me a flyer… and questioned her with “more of the same”? She said she’d heard good things about Karen DeVille, and urged me to contact her. I kept the flyer, and would glance at it occasionally, then put it back in the stack. Finally I made the call in Oct. 2015. On my first visit I was impressed with Karen’s extensive physical evaluation, but was very skeptical on the second visit, which was ‘hands-on’. In my initial visit Karen had recommended I try six sessions, then decide if this was for me. I felt that was reasonable.
As of June 2016 I see Karen 1 or 2 times a week,and I also work out with my personal trainer weekly–, a schedule I plan to continue…what more can I say!!!!!
P.S. My two daughters are physicians, one in family medicine and palliative care, and the other in surgical oncology. Both enthusiastically support this schedule.
