“I am writing this to express my thanks and appreciation to Dr. Gregory Reardon. I have been a patient since 2/8/16 to rehab my left shoulder which had 2 rotator cuff and 1 biceps tendon tear surgically repaired on 12/10/15. Greg is by far the best Physical Therapist I have ever worked with. In addition to his vast knowledge base he has the insight to know exactly how hard to push me and when to progress forward to the next level of exercise or intensity. Throughout my course of care, I have felt completely confident and at ease with the way Greg nurtured me through a tough and challenging rehab. He gave me the confidence and encouragement to get me to work to my true maximum ability while ensuring I would not push myself further than was safe. That was amazing! Greg is a true talent with a gift. I truly attribute my advanced level of recovery from this extensive shoulder surgery to the exceptional work and treatment program that Greg Provided for me. I have been able to continue to compete in a competitive men’s softball league and can still golf down at my vacation house thanks to my recovery.”

In July 2014, I had a femoral osteotomy with hip impingement correction. The surgery, basically, entailed cutting my femur in half, rotating it 35 degrees, grinding out my hip socket, and replacing my femur with the addition of a plate, six pins, and a screw in my hip. Pre-surgery, and one year away from my wedding, I was not only told I would walk with a limp for the rest of my life, but I would, also, be unable to walk down the aisle at my wedding. My prognosis post-surgery was worse. While the surgery was a success, I was further told I would never be able to run, jump, or hike again. And it would take at least 18 months until I could walk with a minimal limp. It was anticipated I would spend: six months using a walker, an additional six months on crutches, then a final six months of re-learning how to walk with a limp. When I started physical therapy with Dr. Gregory Reardon, I tried to remain optimistic, but also fearful of the journey ahead. My sole goal was to walk down the aisle and dance at my wedding. I met with Dr. Reardon three times a week over the course of 11 months. He was patient and kind, but also knew exactly when to push me. He was always thorough, explaining every new exercise or treatment, making me feel comfortable and confident about my care. I always felt I had his undivided attention when I was with him. He was always encouraging and kept me optimistic about my prognosis, even on days when I was in immense pain and unable to exert myself. Dr. Reardon helped me achieve my goals and more within 12 months. I smashed every milestone along the way, needing the walker for only two months and crutches for only three months. By New Years, I could walk with only one crutch, By Valentine’s day, I walked unassisted with a very minimal limp. On the one year anniversary of my surgery—and exactly one month before my wedding—I ran a 5k. I didn’t break any records, and it wasn’t graceful, but I did it. Thanks to Dr. Reardon’s dedication and commitment to my recovery, I was, also, able to dance with my husband at our wedding, and walk down the aisle with my father, limp-free. For our honeymoon, as a celebration of my recovery, my husband and I spent three weeks hiking in the National Parks on the West Coast. Since my surgery, I’ve continued my active lifestyle of hiking, kayaking, swimming, and kickboxing. Even now, almost three years’ post-surgery, I still utilize exercises and stretching techniques Dr. Reardon taught me. No one thought I would ever walk limp-free again, but with the support and care of Dr. Reardon, I was able to far exceed any expectations of my other doctors. Dr. Reardon is not only the best at his craft, he genuinely cares about his patients, and gives new meaning to what physical therapy can and should be; he literally saved my quality of life.

The first time I met Dr. Reardon, I had just come from the orthopedic spine surgeon, who – after looking at my MRI – recommended spinal fusion for my L3, L4 and L5, lamination for my three herniated discs and decompression of my severe stenosis. I walked into the physical therapy facility in near panic mode, with little hope of any alternative to immediately “going under the knife”. I had participated in physical therapy before for my back, and had received little more than massage and hookup to the tens unit, which suffice it to say, got me nowhere. But when I started working with Greg, it was clear from the start that his level of care was vastly superior and effective. Dr. Reardon conducted a thorough and caring assessment, replacing my despair with immediate positivity and encouragement. In the sessions to come, I experienced extraordinary improvement with Greg’s adept application of functional manual therapy. With just a touch, Dr. Reardon seemed to immediately understand the locations and levels of my pain. Over the months of my care, his vast knowledge and expert treatment of my back and referred hip pain, with different techniques and modalities, impressed me tremendously. I even took to examining anatomy charts and reading books on movement, to understand the terrific work that he was doing. He answered my endless questions and, unlike other doctors, never patronized, but only encouraged my curiosity and better understanding of the healing process. Most important, I was moving and feeling better, and was happily back to spinning, walking, even dancing. With any luck, maybe my golf handicap will even improve! Beyond all this, Dr. Reardon brings a level of devotion and compassion to his patients that is truly exceptional. He is always “present” during every therapy session, fully focused on giving the best level of care and rehabilitation to each person he sees, no matter how many people, and what their condition. You can ask anyone that he treats, many of whom have already sought out a plethora of treatments and therapists for their pain before considering themselves lucky enough to have found Dr. Reardon. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
