Jon, many thanks for the successful sessions. You are the only physical therapist, of four, I have seen that has made a positive difference in my lower back. A straighter David!
Jon is hands down the best PT I’ve ever worked with. I injured my left hip about two years ago, and was in constant pain for over a year on my left side. I went through a ton of different chiros, doctors, and PT’, spent over $4500 on various treatments and scans, everyone just told me to do the same stretches I had been doing.
Jon gave me new stretches that not only helped a ton, but also took my daily stretching time down from 1.5 hours to about 45 mins total. On top of that, I can dance again and am not in constant pain, in fact I feel great most days! I’d highly recommended Team Care to anyone in my position.
Like many, I have struggled with back issues for 20+ years. Mainly lower back issues, L4 and L5 issues to be specific. Over the years I have tried many options to relieve my pain, with the exceptions of pharmaceuticals other than Ibuprofen. Everything had a temporary and decreasing benefit over time. When my wife recommended me trying Team Care and the McKenzie method, I was very skeptical but my daily pain was bad. So my wife made me an appointment. My first meeting with Jon Weinberg was an hour discussing my past and current pain, mobility and physical exam, my goals and expectations. The process Jon started with me was a combination of exercises that I was able to handle (baby steps.) It wasn’t long when I started to see improvement. Please understand I’m not claiming a miracle. But I did see definite progress in a short period of time that gave me hope we were in the right path. I have significant curves in my spine that have always complicated any past treatments. Like the game Jenga, pull one piece and the tower shifts. Jon worked with me through my complications and adjusted the course of treatment. He asked questions, listened and worked with me to find what worked best and how we could continue to see improvement.
So where are we today. I’m 52 and will never be 25 again. Yes, I still have bad days when I feel like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz in the morning looking for an oil can. But 99 out of 100 days are good. I can exercise, bike and weight train, and most days I forget I have back issues. FYI, that was my goal…. To go through an entire day and not think about my back. Now it’s normal to climb into bed at night and think to myself “Hey no back issues today.”
I have a short series of morning exercises I use as maintenance and others I use if things are a little tweaked on the rare bad day. This program and working with Jon has done wonders for my back and my ability to NOT have back pain dominate my life. As I said before, this is not a miracle cure. It is work and commitment from both the therapist and the patient. Team Care and Jon have the program and framework that they apply as needed and adjust to relieve your pain. I’m not a “glass half” guy and I think I have written two reviews in my life. I highly recommend trying this program.
I came in with lower back pain and left with no pain and corrected posture! Jon is great and can fix you for good!
Wow! What would I have done and where would I be today if I hadn’t been directed to Team Care PT??
After 2 debilitating episodes over a period of 11 mos due to a bulging disk and 9 mos of chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture treatments, and a steroid taper pack, I still couldn’t do more than walk cautiously or even perform light household chores without lightning bolt pain, let alone any type of exercise. Jon to the rescue!
Within 3 weeks of seeing Jon and doing the McKenzie Method PT exercises, I had total relief. Was it voodoo? A miracle?? No, just Jon working his magic with good humor and the McKenzie Method PT.
Jon really listens and cares (I was pretty desperate when I came to him!), gives simple instruction and patiently answers all of my many questions. He goes above and beyond as evidenced by his willingness to take calls or answer texts even on a couple of Saturdays when I’ve reached out to him for clarification or moral support!
Ira, office manager extraordinaire, is equally awesome. There couldn’t be a friendlier more responsive duo than Jon and Ira. They’ve been amazing, and I couldn’t recommend them more enthusiastically.
Thank you Team Care Physical Therapy.
Jon, aka Spine Bloke, is the real deal. He has helped me out twice. Once I had a tingling sensation up and down my left arm that the medical establishment wanted to treat with multiple injections into my upper spine. Given the cost to BCBS and me, I thought I should try therapy first. And within about six weeks the sensation was in my rear view window. The second time I was locked into a vertical position, could not sit for more than a few minutes. This took longer, about three months. End result: I am now more flexible than I ever was before. Jon also is a great conversationalist and has a tremendous sense of humor. The maintenance exercises I have been doing have so far prevented any return visits. Should the need ever arise again, Spine Bloke here I come.
I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for bringing me to Jon Weinberg and Team Care Physical Therapy. Under Jon’s care, my neck and back pain have drastically improved. I’ve seen other physical therapists over the years, but none have been able to treat me successfully. Jon taught me the tools to “treat” myself if I aggravate my injuries. My quality of life is so much better as a result. Thank you so much Jon!
After being diagnosed with a severely bulging disk, I was told I needed surgery. A second opinion provided a referral to Team Care. Five months later, I am pain free and no longer require a walker or cane, thanks to Jon Weinberg and Team Care.
My goal was to be able to function without leg pain. Team Care helped me accomplish this. Great job!
Aloha, Jon. Thanks again for introducing me to the McKenzie Method. My knees and back are doing great. Had a Pickleball Tournament this past weekend and won a Silver Medal in the Men’s Doubles and Bronze in the Mixed Doubles. We had 15 grueling matches and did the McKenzie stretches/exercise between matches and it helped tremendously. Aloha Pumehana
