"As a mother of 3, everyday life has been challenging for my body and back pain was a way of life. Through the years I sought help from at least 3 physical therapy offices and various chiropractors. Nobody was able to rid me of my pain because I was given the wrong treatment. A friend of mine asked me to at least try this facility which was my last resort before surgery. The therapists of Hands-On Care PT and PhysicoCare explained to me aspects of my care that had never been addressed. They also gave me suggestions on how to manage and handle my body in ways that now allow me to enjoy life."
Patty Howard (Jackson Heights, NY)
"After my 60th birthday knee pain was a routine. I had a hard time walking, bending to pick up my grandchildren and going to shop for groceries became almost impossible. When my neighbor suggested Hands-On and Physiocare I was reluctant because I did not think anything would work. The therapist listened to my problem, treated me with care and compassion and after a few visits I started feeling better. Now, I go for a few visits every year and 10 years later I managed to avoid surgery and continue living a fulfilling life."
Maria Yannakis (Astoria, Queens)
"As a business executive I travel frequently. Six months ago while travelling to Boston I was involved in a car accident hurting my neck. I was recommended to Hands-On and Physiocare from the CEO of our company who used them last year for his shoulder problem. The therapists not only evaluated and treated my problem effectively but were very flexible to accommodate my erratic and busy schedule. They also worked with my out of state insurance to make sure that I did not have to pay a dime. I am so happy with them that I have already referred them two of my associates."
Stuart Stein (Manhattan, NY)
"I work in construction for the past 30 years. I have injured myself several times, however nothing compares to the shoulder injury I got last year while falling off a scaffold and trying to hold myself up with my right arm. At the emergency room the doctors diagnosed that I had torn several shoulder muscles. I had extensive surgery and the orthopedist recommended that I go to Hands-On and Physiocare since he wanted me to see a very competent therapist for the serious condition I had. The staff was very kind to me, the office accepted my worker?s compensation insurance and helped me with all paperwork needed. I have been very pleased for the level of care I received and for the manner that I was treated by all the staff."
Paul Russo (Bayridge, Brooklyn)
"My phys ed teacher told my mother to bring me to Hands-On after I hurt my foot during basketball. The people were very cool with me and helped me to get rid of the swelling of my foot. I am now back in the court. They were really nice and cool."
Jacke Silverborn (16 years old- Bayside, NY)
"I was so devastated when my husband had a stroke. He used to take care of anything and everything and now I was so lost. The worse was that we felt so hopeless. After he finished with homecare physical therapy the doctor suggested that I bring him to a physical therapy office. Although, Hands-On and Physiocare was far away from my home I brought him here because I had heard from other people that you are the best. And they were right. Not only you treated us with respect, but you helped both of us deal with this situation and you stood on our side every step of the way. Thank you all so much!"
Stamatis and Maria Sofronis (Bayside, Queens)
"I would like to thank the therapists of Hands-On and Physiocare for the wonderful therapy they gave me after my hip surgery. Not only they treated my hip but they gave me exercises and instructions on what to do at home. I now feel so much better."
Sara Sonkin (Manhattan, NY)
"I am a secretary at a medical office. I started feeling numbness in my right hand and my boss examined me and diagnosed me with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. He immediately sent me to Hands-On and Physiocare. I knew about them from the positive comments I had heard from other patients we had sent to them. I was pleased to find out first hand that everything I had heard was so true. I was treated so well from everyone. The therapists explained to me that they applied a special technique to mobilize my obstructed nerve. It only took a few weeks and I now feel as if I never had a problem. For sure they will get all PT referrals from our office."
Tania Tzivas (Medical Secretary - Astoria, Queens)
"As a parent with a 7 year old child with Cerebral Palsy, I have been to so many physical therapists. My child receives therapy at school but a few months ago, I heard from the mother of one of the other kids at school that she also brings him to Hands-On and that he has made great gains. I decided to bring my daughter to Hands-On too and try what they would do for him. The past 4 months my daughter has improved so much. The therapists of Hands-On and Physiocare are using some new techniques that can stimulate the connection between the brain and the body to improve faster. Thank you for making a difference in my child's life!"
Carol Ardito (Manhattan, NY)
"I fell during the last snowstorm and hurt my tailbone. The doctors said to rest and get some physical therapy. My son in law goes for therapy to Hands-On and I started going with him. A week later my next door neighbor hurt her elbow and now all three of us drive together to Hands-On and Physiocare three times a week. The therapists and all the staff treat us so well and we feel as if we are at home. They have now become like friends to us. Thank you all for the great help!"
