Erin is a wonderful person at getting to the root of your problem. She is capable of evaluating your situation and my doctor relies on her judgement in reaching a diagnosis and treatment plan. It is worth the wait if she is not available on an immediate basis. Erin accomplished more with my situation on the first visit than other therapists were able to do over a much longer treatment time frame.
My name is Kathi and I am a patient of Erin White due to a motor vehicle accident. Since my injury, I have been to numerous doctors, specialists, other physical therapists, and have undergone medical procedures trying to relieve shoulder and hip pain. I am thankful to have found a therapist like Erin White. Integrity would be an excellent way to describe the manner in which she runs her practice and treats her patients. Without her support to see me symptom free, I probably would have believed what the other doctors said and just accepted that I would never be as good as I was before my accident.
When I first met Erin, I was frustrated and confused with my diagnosis. She took a lot of time to talk to me and explain my situation. She has a supportive and positive manner and uses language you can understand. I felt so relieved that I honestly think it even helped me sleep better that night.
Erin has fixed so many things that other doctors had told me were just a part of getting old. She educates me on what I am doing in my life that is causing or exacerbating the problem and quick and easy adjustments I can do myself. I am to the point where I can fix most of the problems I used to have to go see her about...She's set the new standard in my mind for who I will go to for physical therapy.
This is "not" 15 minutes of poking about and then slapping you on an exercise machine. Erin gets to the root of musculoskeletal issues that are the cause of problems. I started seeing Erin for what I thought was akin to tennis elbow (something that people told me was not likely to go away). Not only have those symptoms gone away, but all of the issues that were adding to the problem have been fixed as well.
Love Erin's uncanny ability to both know what I need to get better, as well as, what I need to stop doing to keep from getting broken again.
I told Erin on that first visit that I was probably overdoing it on the raquetball court and had strained some muscles. She told me it was my lower back to which I replied "but my back doesn't hurt!!!" I argued with her, saying that I'd never had back pain, and even showed her how flexible I was. "If it was my back, I wouldn't be able to move like this!" Needless to say, Erin was right, I was wrong. It was my back.
I have seen Erin White for two separate injuries and both times she knew exactly what to do. She is the only physical therapist I know that manually works on your body the entire treatment time. She does the work herself which makes it specific and effective. A lot of hard work goes into what she does, being a massage therapist myself, I know how hard body work can be and I also know that I would not still be working without her help. With her treatments I never missed a day of work and I am very grateful for that.
Erin was able to quickly pinpoint the cause of my pain and begin a variety of treatment methods immediately. She would tailor each session to my current needs and provided me with the tools to maintain my health on my own. Not only did she create a custom and effective treatment plan, she was extremely accomodating to my busy schedule. Because Erin impressed me with her knowledge and her clear goal of providing the best physical therapy in the most efficient way I was willing to drive over an hour to see her over other therapists.
I have scoliosis so have had persistent back pain for years. I've been to so many chiropractors and physical therapists but no one has been able to help. It sounds unbelievable but after one session with Erin my pain was almost completely gone! She showed me exercises to do at home so I could keep improving on my own. Now I just have to check in with her on occasion and I'm back to feeling great! Erin is the one who can help when it seems like no one else is able to. She was definitely worth it for me!
I can't say enough about Erin's talents as a physical therapist. She used the latest techniques to help alleviate the extreme pain I was having and set me up with a plan for continual improvement. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone in need of an experienced physical therapist who gets great results.
I came to Erin after trying a variety of options to address a constant backpain. I was looking forward to a trip to Australia and New Zealand with my son. We would be doing a number of physically demanding tasks including scuba diving, rappelling, caving and backpacking and I was concerned that my back would be inflammed by the almost 30 hours of flying, meaning I wouldn't be able to enjoy the trip or participate as I had planned.
I had tried a variety of doctors who would prescribe pain killers and muscle relaxants. Chiropractors that helped briefly but nothing had lasting effect.
Erin was able to diagnosis the underlying problem - something no one else had been able to do. She prescribed a series of unusual exercises that I did religiously for the three weeks prior to my trip. It was astounding. For the first time in I do not remember how long, I was able to wake up without backpain and I was more flexible and had better balance and coordination.
The flight was a non-event and I did not suffer any of my usual discomfort. I was able to participate fully in all the activities and only had to take Advil for the aches you might expect a 62 year old to have after those activities.
Erin is a uniquely talented individual and I only wish she lived closer to me.
The PT's I had been to before worked with the standard model of seeing you for a few minutes, putting you on equipment and then having you work with an aide for the remainder of your appointment. Erin has a different approach. Her focus is to figure out WHY your body is in pain and then to help you readjust and strengthen so that you can have a normal life. She is with you the entire appointment. She educates you about how you can help yourself, at home, with simple tools and in a reasonable amount of time during your day. I am now able to do all of the things I love to do. I honestly thought that enjoying much in my life was over due to constant pain. Erin gave me my life back. Thank you Erin!!!!
