Physical Therapist position available at Mission Hills Physical TherapyJuly 4, 2009
Physical Therapist – Full time and Part time openings available in progressive outpatient manual therapy clinic.
Are you a Physical Therapist who is ready to take your skills and training to the next level? Are you frustrated with difficult and chronic cases? Do you want to be able to help…. Truly help clear patients of chronic conditions;
Conditions that have been un-helped with standard quality physical therapy?
When you hear the words “usual predictors of outcome” used to justify why a Fibromyalgia or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy or Multiple Sclerosis patient won’t get any better, do you ask yourself “is there anything else we can do?” Do you want to learn how to help people actually heal and go on to lead normal pain-free lives even after dealing with chronic headaches, “failed low back syndrome,” or chronic arthritis for years?
We are looking for Physical Therapists who are excited to learn how to help solve difficult and chronic cases as well as fix up people with the usual orthopedic and neurological conditions. We have a reputation in the community to do just that. If you are searching for a way to make a difference, please look through our website and blog and email me or call us, and we can set up a time to talk about the position open here at Mission Hills Physical Therapy. Below I’m including one success story of a patient with a condition who normally wouldn’t get much help and hadn’t until starting therapy with us and following our program. Please read it and let me know what you think.
Ralph Havens, PT, OCS, IMTC
I can admit that in the past I have been sold snake oil. I have a whole cabinet full of “miracle cures” and another spilling over with various prescriptions from doctors. I gave up on both a long time ago, especially about 3 years ago when my MS was constantly flaring up, each time robbing me of the use of my legs and landing me in the hospital for months. Ralph and company were able to ease the pain in my lower back, which in the hospital required IV pain meds. This was tremendous, but the most progress came 5 months ago when I eliminated gluten from my diet. Ralph provided me with a wealth of information and research from highly regarded medical journals. This eased my neuroscience-oriented mind, and the snake oil alarm in my head never went off, there were no red flags, and instead of the fake hope I’d experienced before, I felt real hope.
My life began 26 years ago, took a turn at 20 with my MS diagnosis, stalled completely 3 years ago, and began again 5 months ago. I remember telling Ralph after being gluten free 2-3 months that I felt I had already made up for the 2 1/2 – 3 years I was in and out of the hospital. Within a month of going gluten free, I knew something wonderful was happening – life was livable again, constant fatigue replaced by constant energy, and the spasticity in my legs I had experienced daily was gone. Even my neurologist, who does not speak in non-pharmaceutical terms, could not find any trace of it. His response to all of these positive changes after gluten-free: “You can’t argue with results like this!”.
Doctors and MS groups look at me with jaws dropped to the floor. I make sure and tell them about having gone gluten-free. I see such a high likelihood for fast improvement that I recommend at least trying a gluten-free diet to all my friends with MS, other neurological problems, and even those who are healthy but say they “could be better.” It can’t hurt to try, and you never know just how amazing the results might be.
