Pain-free After Five Weeks

“I have been dealing with a serious Achilles tendon problem for over 3 years. Every time I hiked more than a mile or so, I would spend the next few days limping around in pain. A doctor had previously tried to solve my problem with orthotics. Eventually, he suggested physical therapy. At this point, I was only 5 weeks away from a once in a life time trip to India, where I would be bird watching and looking for tigers. I knew there would be a lot of hiking on this trip.

I am a member at Gainesville Health and Fitness Center, so I talked to Jan and he suggested I meet with Jerry Rieta at ReQuest. From my first appointment with Jerry, I could tell he was not just concerned with my Achilles tendon but also my general health and well being. I told him about my time crunch and I could immediately tell that he was going to work hard to get me as ready as he could for my trip. We began stretching and strengthening work right away. He also included massage therapy and gave me work to do between our sessions. Jerry worked with me twice a week until I left for India.

The good news is that I had no problems on my trip. Thanks to Jerry and the crew at ReQuest, my Achilles is feeling great, and I have had no pain for the past 6 months.

I was extremely impressed with how they solved my problem with the short amount of time they had to work with me.

The entire staff was helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Jerry and ReQuest to anyone in need of physical therapy.”
