My battle with Morton’s Neuroma started when I made friends with my neighbors who happen to be professional wrestlers. One offered to train me and help me loose weight-which I definitely need- and so I went to our apartment gym with him. In the process of doing a new exercise regime and attempting to impress this giant man with muscles the size of my thighs, I pushed myself and something in my foot felt like it tweaked.
Enter the pain, which felt as though it was primarily on the outside of my left foot, and if I tried to move my baby toe, or if I sat down cross legged on any hard surface, I would get pretty intense pain. I tried to ignore it for a number of weeks, but walking normally became more difficult and the general pain worsened. Thankfully, I went for a consult and started going to Elite Physical Therapy, which has honestly changed my life. I tried to tell them it wasn’t too bad, but then my assigned therapist, whom I have lovingly dubbed “Misha the Magnificent” put her finger on one spot in my foot that made me feel as if I was going to fly off the bed and hit the roof from the pain. She looked at me with quiet confidence, all within 5 seconds of pushing my foot, that I have Morton’s Neuroma and need some focused therapy as well as a steroid shot. Thus began my journey to healing, and I can say with total honesty that after the sessions I’ve had, which included Misha’s manual working and taping, as well as all sorts of high tech things with machine and buttons and wires and ice boots, my foot is back to normal, and I am excessively thankful.
What I think about Elite….I have spent far too much time in physical therapy in my life, and I can say unequivocally and without any doubt that Elite Physical Therapy is hands down THE BEST therapy center I have ever been to. The therapists are unutterably phenomenal, the equipment is superior to other places, and the commitment to recovery by all the staff is unparalleled. I cannot recommend Elite Physical Therapy enough. If you are in need of therapy, make sure to request them from your doctors. I would give them 100 stars if I could.
