My PCP referred me to traditional physical therapy for a very painful, shoulder with quite limited mobility. After some 7-8 weeks my mobility returned but the pain remained and my PT suggested dry needling. I had never heard of it but was having so much pain, I researched it and decided to give it a try. In walks Ginger Morrisey. Not only is she knowledgeable and professional, she really listens. This is a rarity and one I much appreciated. My situation was not a quick fix. It had gone on for awhile before I sought help. But with each session came more and more relief. My goals were her goals. There was no question about my treatment that was out of bounds. It felt as though we were working together as a team in addressing my particular issues. Ginger is attentive to your level of comfort during the procedure. She is constantly evaluating and reevaluating your issues. I found her responsive to my communications both during and after hours. I, of course, tried to remain respectful of her time, but she was available to my communications. I spent over 30 years in the healthcare field and Ginger is one of those rare instances when a skilled, medical caregiver is matched by a compassionate therapist with an awesome bedside manner. And, by the way, the dry needling treatment DOES produce positive results...especially in Ginger’s hands! Thank you so much!
I felt 100% better after my first visit with Ginger. Pain that I had been “pushing through” was completely gone after 3 visits and I’m back to walking and moving in comfort. I really appreciate Ginger’s common sense approach to treatment and home exercises. Now I can’t wait to use my YMCA membership!
