Jeff Goldman explains how Cranio-Sacral Therapy works in this interview with Kayla Sheets on the Vibrant Gene Talk Show.
I started seeing Angela because of nagging lower back pain and a chronic knee problem stemming from meniscal surgery complications. Regular follow up therapy sessions and exercises targeting my particular issues have resulted in my back pain being all but gone. My knee problems are improving and I am getting better extension and less pain in the leg as a result.
My husband started seeing Angela's partner, Jeff, for a torn rotator cuff. His orthopedist had recommended surgery, but after working with Jeff weekly for a period of a few months his shoulder pain subsided and his strength gradually returned. He is now back to playing tennis!
I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and had been in excruciating pain. I had steroid injections and took high doses of Ibuprofen, which did not effectively cure my pain. Through Jeff and Newton Physical Therapy, I have been able to get the effective treatment that I needed so that I could work full time as a teacher without severe pain at the end of each workday. I have recommended Newton Physical Therapy to friends, as I know that they will be happy with the treatment they receive.
What a pleasure it has been having Newton PT in my life. Jeff rehabbed me before and after my hip replacement. He is patient and supportive. I was a basket case when I was told that I needed at new hip at age 53, but with Newton PT's support I'm back at the gym. Their personalized approach has helped me enjoy a better quality of life.
I travel nearly an hour each way to get Cranio-Sacral treatments from Jeff Goldman. I’ve yet to find a hands-on practitioner who is able to unwind complex issues as carefully as he can. Jeff has also given me very effective suggestions for stretches that really help! I find the whole staff at Newton Physical Therapy to be professional and caring. They work very well with insurance to get the most coverage possible.
Both Angela and Jeff have treated me for the past 18 months. I have been suffering from lower back pain for the past 9 years. It was not until my treatment with Jeff and Angela that my back began to get better and stay better.
What I really like about Newton Physical Therapy and particularly about Jeff's service is their high quality, profesionalized therapy and detailed instructions for exercises. Jeff was able to heal the pain in my shoulder, knee, and the leg after two weeks of treatment and continues helping me with the balance issues. Jeff has the ability to rebalance the body energy aright and always has enough time to address all the problems you bring. I strongly recommend NPT to everyone because here they listen to you and help to get rid of your problems.
