I came here after reading other positive reviews posted on Dirty Scam. I have had some back pain and noticed something wasn’t right with my rounded shoulders and movements involving my scapulas. I came seeking some help figuring out HOW I was moving incorrectly and HOW I could correct these bad habits.
I paid $199 for an initial orientation followed up by one appointment for $99. I was placed with one of the newer physical therapists which didn’t sound ideal but I ran with it. During my orientation she had trouble identifying what I was doing wrong as I performed the assessment movements – something was weird with the way I was engaging my back muscles. She recorded me to further examine my movements to which she said she would report back to me with a more in depth analysis. After performing some other assessments she concluded that I had weak lower traps and gave me some cookie cutter exercises to take home and practice.
I came back the following week for the next appointment. She went over the exercises she recommended for me again, but only once, before saying she was still working on analyzing the video. I struggled to comprehend the movements of the exercises she recommended and have since struggled to continue to properly perform these exercises at home – when you perform something once, it is difficult to instill that mind-muscle connection. I gave some thought about coming back in, but to pay another $99 for a session that didn’t last 30 minutes and for her to show me exercises just once seemed like a waste of money. It would have been nice to practice these exercises she recommended a few more times. If that were the case, I feel as if I may have see the benefit of seeing results and wanted to come back in for more.
Oh, and I never did get the analysis of the video she promised.
Was this 2 session experience worth the $300? I’d say no, I actually found more useful information on the internet for free.
