I recently completed four weeks of therapy at Body Mechanixs for treatment of a strained lower back muscle, tendon and fascia. Easter Sunday was the worst day (physically) of my life, I’m 70 yrs old. I had been experiencing back pain for 2 months since lifting my granddaughter’s car seat while at the same time twisting to my left. I saw an orthopedic doctor who made the diagnosis and recommended physical therapy. I chose Body Mechanix because I had gone there before and I had success. I must admit that I had my doubts about whether PT was the answer because I had been working out and that wasn’t helping. My therapist, Shari, assured me from day one that she could get me back to health – and she was right. Shari was fantastic, she found the injured area, massaged it, stretched it, put electrical impulses on it and prescribed the correct exercises to aid in relieving my pain. I feel completely recovered now I’m working out and riding my bike (10 to 12 miles). I am glad I chose Body Mechanix and fortunate to have been assigned Shari as my PT. I would highly recommend Body Mechanix to anyone who needs PT. Shari and the other therapists who I worked with were very knowledgeable and professional as were the secretaries.

Because of a chronic condition, I have been a patient at Body Mechanix Physical Therapy (formerly RI Rehab South) for several years. The staff are a group of professionals who place interest of each patient first. They treat all their patients as individuals; each with unique needs getting personalized treatment. And from the moment you walk into the office, you feel like you’re at the office of a friend. The welcoming smiles and friendly environment make each visit a pleasant experience while making progress in your rehabilitation.

I am so grateful to Body Mechanix for helping me be free of back pain. They provided expert analysis of my problem and gave me the correct exercises to do at home. I really improved! My therapists were Lisa and Maria and they were so wonderful. Last year, I had a frozen shoulder and Shari and Maria quickly improved it so that my shoulder is normal now. I love coming to Body Mechanix!

Just a few words to thank you for your staff’s consideration when treating my knee. They are aware of the pain one suffers after a knee operation, so they don’t try to go beyond my pain tolerance. I have been treated at two other Physical Treatment Centers, but none as caring as you therapists have been to me. After only six sessions, I am showing some improvement in my knee.
