Brendan has made such a positive impact on my health, and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an empathic, knowledgeable, and effective PT!
I had double jaw surgery, Maxillomandibular advancement, in March of 2019. Physical therapy was never brought up with my surgeon, so I did not partake in it post-op. Recovery was long, but I felt I had mostly healed by September of 2019. Then, I started feeling a new pain in my jaw while chewing, brushing my teeth, and talking in January of 2020. It was debilitating. I felt worried that something had gone wrong during my surgery or during my recovery, and I had nightmares of going under the knife again. I scoured the internet for solutions- Enter, Glackin Physiotherapy!
Brendan made me feel comfortable right away by presenting me with a game plan for our time together, as well as exercises to do at home. With weekly assessments during our appointments together, I could clearly see that I was making progress, and I was feeling significantly better after just a few weeks. Brendan is easy to talk to, will answer any question about your treatment, and empowers you with knowledge and tools to continue healing even after your time together is through. One of the things I appreciated most was that Brendan would explain the reasoning behind each exercise, which made me feel more motivated to continue.
This experience was life changing for me, and I can now go about all my daily activities without pain or fear! Thank you thank you thank you!!
