Over the course of almost 30 years, I’d been through 3 back surgeries for herniated discs, all those operations successful after failed physical therapy. Last year, sciatica hit with a vengeance. After a month of not being able to walk, more failing PT, I was ready to suffer a 4th surgery. With skepticism, I tried Roland, who spent a long session with me to assess my condition. He prescribed a regimen of exercises that, to my amazement, had me up and walking, as well as climbing, without pain in a few weeks, and that continues to this day, along with doing his exercises.
I have had chronic back pain for most of my life. I have seen many Physical Therapists and none were able to figure out exactly what the problem was until I went to Gunks Physical Therapy. Roland is amazing. Through his guidance, hands on work, and exercise routine I am free of back pain and can even run again which I never thought I would be able to return to.
Roland Alley is an exceptionally knowledgeable and professional physical therapist. I have been treated by Roland for years. Last year, my back went out and Roland was able to provide me with therapy and exercises to get me moving again. I highly recommend Gunks Physical Therapy!
I have been impressed at not only Roland’s depth of knowledge, but also his attentiveness in listening to my issue, and asking further questions. The exercises that he prescribed were very specific in addressing the problem I was having, and they changed as my weakness and pain changed. Attentive. Smart. Pro-Active. Awesome.
Effective and Informative. I work in the construction trade and use my body extensively everyday. Last year I developed a sharp muscle pain in my low back and hips. With little rest due to my profession, the pain continually flared up. I had tried acupuncture, chiropractic and there seemed to be a range of advice on how to treat my condition. It wasn’t until seeing Roland did I feel like a gained control over the pain. He had provided me with the information I needed to perform everyday tasks effectively without putting strain on my back. His effective communication and passion for his work makes Roland an extraordinary resource. He had provided me with a daily exercise regiment that has given me increased core strength and the pain I was experiencing had completely diminished. Furthermore I feel confident in using my body in safe and effective ways for the type of work that I do.
