Sciatica & Back Pain Relief Frisco, McKinney, Allen, and Plano, TX
I got diagnosed with Cervical Mylopathy and my doctor advised me to go for surgery because it would the only option to treat my problem. I had pain on the entire right side of my body from my neck to my toes and could not sit or stand or walk for more than 15 min without pain. As per my friend's advice, I went to Therapy Fit and started treatment. Dr. Reddy explained the problem and solution very well . He was checking on the progress and giving suggesions in every session. I noticed tremenduous improvement with just 4 sessions of treatment and got better week within a week. Great Staff and great treatment. I would definitely recommend Therapy Fit to anybody looking for a physical therapy clinic.
Dr. Reddy is wonderful. He treats you like a friend, laughs with you and always seems excited to see you. He and his staff care about your happiness and listen to your physical complaints with patience. This is important to me, having multiple issues that need addressing. He will field any question and is ready with suggested exercises and stretches to help you with any issue. The office is small and I was uncertain at first, but his approach, knowledge and personal physical fitness rapidly impressed me. They will be expanding soon, with more space and equipment. Even so, they do amazing work with what they currently have.
I went to Therapy Fit for my physical therapy for my tennis elbow recently. The entire staff was good. Dr. Reddy and his entire team put their experience and made sure i made excellent progress. Now I can lift and carry heavy weights without any pain or any joint limitation. I was even thinking of undergoing steroid or surgery in the beginning. But, after going through physical therapy at Therapy fit i do not need any steroid or surgery now. I recommend anyone with joint and muscle problems to see Therapy fit as a first choice.
Dr. Reddy and his staff are very personable and professional. They go the extra mile to help you get the best physical therapy you need, motivate you, and educate you. They are genuinely concerned for your progress as a patient and want to see you get the results you came for.
This was my first ever physical therapy sessions. The therapist was extremely professional and patient.
Therapy Fit Inc has helped my grandma recover great we don't have that long visiting and we have seen a lot of improvement. As soon as one comes in one is greeted with a smile and great attitude. I take my grandma there because of her damaged shoulder. All the therapy that she has received has helped her a lot to improve back her movement and reduce her pain. I highly recommend it. Everyone has a great attitude, they're patient, helpful, and they listen to all the corners one may have.
Accurate diagnosis and excellent treatment by Anandi ,the therapist here. I had femoral nerve entrapment syndrome on the left thigh that the earlier therapy place i went for 6 weeks did not diagnose well. Anandi relieved the pain in just 1 visit using ultrasonic waves and IFT therapy that they offer..She spends the entire therapy hour teaching and working with you on the required exercises to strengthen the weak muscles.Most importantly they listened to me.Very flexible place that will see you for an emergency like once i had acute spasm of my neck muscles they immediately had me in and helped me with all they could do.Highly recommend for quick relief of pain and recovery.Thank you again Anandi and team.
My Therapy sessions helped me a lot to overcome the pain quickly. The exercises were quite effective to regain back to normal. The environment was good and the staff were very friendly.
I am very glad with the service. The diagnostics was very good and the therapy has really helped for my speedy recovery.
I had severe frozen shoulder, barely could lift my right hand. Tried several other methods, like chiropractic, acupuncture and cupping. But physical therapy with Dr Reddy worked like magic. Started feeling good within three visits. He also teaches the exercises, targets muscles where it matters. Best thing, I did not take x-ray or MRI, he truly relied on his expertise in diagnosing and solving the problem. I highly recommend Therapy Fit for any injuries. I started taking my son, for his posture correction, as kids are constantly electronics and phone, often leading to bad posture.
I was treated for my shoulder pain. When I came to this clinic I was very impressed and convinced enough by the physical therapy doctor here. He explained me all the reasons why shoulder pain comes how it progresses and what he can help with and how he will do it. Every time I was treated I was given a detailed information.i was also able to see good progress. I am now able to do everything I want to. I strongly recommend this place for any shoulder problems.
I received very good physical therapy here. Clinic looks simple. But the therapist is very good and knows what to do. I was suffering with stenosis in the spine that caused terrible back pain for months. After undergoing treatment here my pain has almost gone 80% less. This is much more than when I had steroid shot.I even put off my plans to undergo surgery. I am now continuing with home exercise that helps me maintain all that I got from this place.
The care and treatment I have received recently from this place has been amazing. Dr. Gopinath is extremely knowledgeable and very personable. I recommend this place to anyone looking for skilled therapy.
I went to this center following back pain. I was diagnosed with Lumbar stenosis and disc herniation. After undergoing physical therapy for a few sessions I am almost completely recovered. great work by these therapists.
Very good customer service and great staff.The Physical therapy Doctor here was very knowledgeble and detailed my condition. On the first day he did detailed check up and made me sit with him and explain everything happening in my MRI in his computer clearly.I was very happy right from the beginning.I was originally recommended surgery for my back by my other doctor. But I put my trust with this Physical therapy Doctor and he got me through without any surgery. I can now do most of my activities after going through physical therapy here. I thank this clinic for making me strong again. I will give 10 star for the work.
One of the best in Texas for the elderly and everyone else. Dr Gopinath took care of my father for 10 months and was not very gentle and patient but firm as well. My father came to him with right side paralyzed and could not get up or sit up or walk independently with a walker. Dr Gopinath showed him a lot of ways that he could independently walk and get up on his own. He was very flexible with providing appointments. We will be definitely using his services in the future if needed.
Had a few sessions now with Dr. Reddy and it feels great already. Highly recommended for all Physical therapy needs.
Excellent place to get your physical therapy treatment.Doctor and supporting staffs are awesome and good thing full body balance and flexibility is concentrated.
Thesis was a Great experience. I stated my goals when I first walked in ( not really walking, more like shuffling). My pain was constant,my posture was poor, and I’m at the age where falling is fatal. Reddy and the entire staff helped me Every step of the way. I now walk, stand with little pain. And I do not fear falling Therapy Fit not only gave my physical strength back but also gave me freedom to walk stand and move as I please. Thank all of you!

My doctor recommended Therapy Fit because the doctor at Therapy Fit is very hands on. Dr Reddy at Therapy Fit welcomed me on the first day and explained to me why I was having a problem and how he and his staff were going to help me over come it. After a half an hour we got to work. Dr Reddy spent the whole two hours with me. On all of the following visits Dr Reddy spent at least an hour with me every session constantly explaining, how and why. When his staff help me with my rehab the staffed also explained how and why. I always knew how all excersices were about to effect me, some caused some soreness for a day or so but they all worked and improved my condition. Dr Reddy has a staff that is very knowledgeable and friendly. I was never embarrassed when I failed to properly complete an exercise only encouraged. While at Therapy fit I saw a lot of improvement on all the patients. We all smiled often while working out and at the end of each session we felt that we were getting closer to out goals. Therapy Fit is a wonderful place thanks to Dr Reddy and his staff.

The PT and his staff are very nice and informative. I recommend any student to do their observation hours here if they are planning to go to PT school. You will have a great time!
I have been taking my 10 year old son after a knee injury during gymnastices. Though not specialised in sports therapy, the therapist was able to work with my son healing him in just 2 sessions.
Therapy Fit is a warm friendly professional environment. The doctor was knowledgable and committed to helping me reach my goal.
I did not have a lot of happiness in my life when i first came here. The pain and limitations were so bad. It felt as though i was going to have learn pain management.

Have been taking my mother in law for her knee pain since past 4 weeks, she's been experiencing a dramatic difference. We had tried therapy before but nothing worked as great before.

Do you wake up in the morning with that nagging back pain? Are you feeling achy pain into your back, buttock, or even thigh? Are you having to watch what you do, because you are afraid you may hurt your back?
According to the American Physical Therapy Association, back pain is the most commonly reported pain across the nation, and one out of every four Americans has experienced back pain in the past three months.
Back pain and sciatica differ but are often confused with each other. Back is specific to the upper, mid or low back. Sciatica is a more diffuse, radiating pain down the buttock, thigh, and even leg. It is also possible to have radiculopathy, which is a radiating numbness, tingling, burning, or sharp pain to a specific part of the leg. This is often associated with a herniated disc, or entrapment of the nerve of that area, as it exits the spine.
If you searching for back pain relief or sciatica relief, don’t rely on medicines to mask the symptoms. Your body is telling you of the deeper root cause of the problem, that needs to be fixed. Know that physical therapy should be your first treatment of choice, which eliminates your need for harmful painkilling drugs, such as opioids, or possibly avoid an invasive surgical procedure.
What’s the difference between back pain and sciatica?
“Back pain” is a term that can be caused by an array of different conditions. For example, you may experience back pain due to poor posture, a motor vehicle accident, or a lifting injury. The treatment plan that your Frisco, McKinney, Allen and Plano, TX physical therapist sets up for you, will depend on how you developed the back pain, in addition to its exact location and your past medical history.
Back pain can be described as acute, meaning it is short-term, or chronic, meaning it is long-term (typically lasting for three months or longer).
Sciatica is a specific type of back pain that is reported as being highly uncomfortable. However, it is also fortunately very simple to diagnose. People with sciatica experience pain along their sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in your body.
The sciatic nerve begins at your lower back and then splits at the base of your spine to extend further down to your buttocks, legs, and finally to the bottom of each foot. The sciatic nerve can become compressed or irritated, which causes a “shooting,” “stinging,” or “burning” sensation in your lower back, buttocks, legs, or feet.
How do back pain and sciatica develop?
General back pain typically develops as the result of an injury. This can be due to repetitive straining motions, such as leaning down multiple times throughout the day to pick up a toddler, or a more serious, sudden trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident. Underlying conditions, such as herniated discs, can also cause immense pain, and cause radiculopathy pain to the thigh, leg, or foot. Degenerative disc disease is a common condition as we age, which can result in back pain. Those with this condition typically report dull, aching pains in their lower back, and have difficulty with prolonged standing or walking.
Sciatica’s technical name is “lumbar radiculopathy.” People who develop this condition are generally between the ages of 30 and 50. Many different types of injuries can cause the development of sciatica, including arthritis, bone spurs, or any other injury that impacts the sciatic nerve. Most commonly, we find that people lose their flexibility in the hips and pelvis, which causes the gluteus and hip muscles to become tightened. This is turn, alters the mechanics of the spine, and compression to the sciatic nerve as it travels through these tissues.
Why you shouldn’t just deal with that nagging pain
For most people, back pain will come and go. However, what many people don’t realize, is that the underlying problem of poor joint movement, core weakness, and poor muscle coordination, will set them up for a future back injury, which can be significantly worse.
Back pain and sciatica are both completely treatable through physical therapy. Your physical therapist creates a specific treatment plan for you that is dependent upon your diagnosis. The early stages of your physical therapy treatment focuses on quick pain relief.
As your pain reduces, your physical therapist will expand on strengthening your core muscle group with specific therapeutic exercises and stretches. The goal here is to increase your strength and range of motion to prevent re-injury of your spine. Finally, we teach you ergonomics and ways to make sure you know how to take care of your spine, avoiding future problems.
If you are suffering from sciatica, our physical therapists will implement specific leg stretches into your treatment plan to loosen the sciatic nerve. This restores the natural health of the nerve and quickly reduces symptoms.
If you are experiencing back pain or sciatica, make an appointment with one of our specialists at our home care physical therapy at Therapy Fit provides you with a specialized treatment that will give you permanent relief from all your pain and injuries in Frisco, McKinney, Allen and Plano, TX. No matter how severe the pain may be, we will help you get on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.
There are a large number of conditions that can result in back pain. For example, poor posture, car accidents, and sports-related injuries are just a few of the ways that someone may develop back pain. Injury is the most common cause of back pain. This can happen in one of two ways: 1) an instant, sudden trauma, such as a car accident, or 2) repetitive use that puts excessive stress on the back over time, such as bending down several times throughout the week to pick up boxes. Some other factors that may contribute to your back pain include degenerative disc disease, lumbar spinal stenosis, fractures, herniated disc, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and tumors of the spine.
Back pain commonly results from a muscle strain or injury; however, it can also develop as a result of an underlying condition, such as a herniated disc, sciatica, or degenerative disc disease. Poor posture, car accidents, and sports-related injuries are also common ways that someone may develop back pain. Your physical therapist will focus on treating the root of your back pain, in order to help you regain mobility, function, and comfort.
You can treat your back pain with physical therapy. Physical therapy can address back pain by helping to improve your range of motion, strengthening the muscles in the affected areas, and using targeted massage to reduce tension. In many situations, working with a physical therapist to improve can significantly reduce the severity of your back pain, and may even help you avoid more invasive procedures, such as surgery.
It is common that the muscles used to support the lower back may become weakened from inactivity. We’ll prescribe targeted, easy-to-do exercises that we will walk you through, in order to help your back muscles regain their strength. This will help provide greater support to your spine and reduce any inflammation you may be experiencing. While the best exercises for your back pain are relative to your specific conditions, some common ones your physical therapist may have you do include spine stretches, bridges, and pelvic tilts.
