To the staff at Therapy Unlimited,
Thank you so much for the excellent care you provided during my recovery with a broken knee and wrist. I really appreciated your expertise in developing the therapy regime to quickly regain my strength and mobility. The pool was a true highlight - it is just a gorgeous facility and water therapy was a key component of my recovery. And of course you all know how much I enjoyed the paraffin (wink!).
But truly, where Therapy Unlimited really shines is your staff. Every single one of you are so kind and pleasant - just genuinely nice people. That makes a difference - it was clear to me that everyone really cared about my recovery. I always looked forward to seeing your smiling faces (well, I could tell you were smiling under your masks!) and chatting with all of you.
Hopefully I won't need your services again for many years to come, but if I do, I would not hesitate to come back to your fantastic facility and staff!If I can provide a reference beyond this letter at some point - please don't hesitate to reach out.

I tore a muscle in my knee when I was ice skating and had to have an operation to fix it. I ended up having 2 different leg casts over 3 month. My leg was skinny and weak and it hurt when I walked on it. Jennifer was my favorite therapist and with her help - I learned how to walk again! Everyone at Therapy Unlimited are so nice and they always told me what a great job I was doing even when I was grumpy!
If you have back pain, you are not alone. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, nearly everyone at some point has back pain that interferes with work, routine daily activities, or recreation. Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain, the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work. Back pain is the second most common neurological ailment in the United States - only headache is more common Fortunately, most occurrences of back pain go away within a few days. Others take much longer to resolve or lead to more serious conditions.
"Acute" or short-term pain generally lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Most acute pain is mechanical in nature and is the result of trauma to the back or a disorder such as arthritis. Pain from trauma may be caused by a sports injury, work around the house or in the garden, or a sudden jolt such as a car accident or other stress on spinal bones and tissues. Symptoms may range from muscle ache to shooting or stabbing pain, limited flexibility and /or range of motion, or an inability to stand straight. Occasionally, pain felt in one part of the body may radiate from a disorder or injury elsewhere in the body. Some acute pain syndromes can become more serious if left untreated.
"Chronic" pain is measured by duration. Pain that persists for more than three (3) months is considered chronic. It is often progressive and the cause can be difficult to determine.
