NY Theraspine: The Best Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation and Chiropractic Clinic in Manila
Something awful happened to me a few months ago which really affected my work for weeks. Thank God I found the right place and people to help me heal fast. Now that I’m ok, I’ve decided to write about my experience to also help people whose careers (like call center agents, writers, photographers etc) require a lot of typing and/or may be suffering with the same symptoms as what I had.
Here’s my story…..
As you may all know, I work with my hands a lot…… AS IN A LOT!!!
Then on the day of Christmas Eve….
This experience for me was very traumatic because all my Christmas cooking plans and activities didn’t push through. My right hand was too painful that I found myself crying the whole Christmas vacation. I had a lot of fears in my head during those times, I was scared I might have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome etc…. I was scared I might lose my job and worst of all, I might not be able to take photos again. Nooooooooo!!!!!!
Good thing I remembered having a consultation with NY Theraspine last November 2013 during Blogapalooza. Their Head PT and Manager Sir Pol Haboc gave me some helpful advice about my wrist condition, so I thought it was best to visit them again for a consultation.
3 days after feeling pain, I visited their clinic located along Dr. Lazcano St. near Tomas Morato in Quezon City.
After some tests, I was diagnosed with having right wrist and thumb sprain. Sir Pol told me what I had was very common with writers. It was then when I realized I was pushing myself too much (tsk tsk tsk…). I had to admit I’ve been such a workaholic the past years that I forgot to give my hands the rest it needed. I was relieved it wasn’t something serious!
Sir Pol recommended I undergo therapy sessions 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks and follow-up re-evaluation after 4 sessions.
Good thing my left hand was ok, so I was able to take photos while my right hand was receiving therapy. Here’s what they did:
First, they wrapped my hand with Hot Moist Pack then 15mins of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) which helped relieve pain and increased blood circulation….
Next was a 5 minute Combination Ultrasound around my joints. My Physical Therapist Ms. Ruth told me this was very good for relieving acute chronic pain and muscle spasms.
Afterwards, Ms. Ruth gently gave me a Soft Tissue Mobilization massage… The experience was so nice!
My first therapy session at NY Theraspine was so successful, that I was able to somehow move my wrist right away. But of course, my hand wasn’t fully healed yet, so I had to give it time to rest for a couple of days.
After 2 days, the pain dramatically decreased and my right hand was almost recovered but I still went back to NY Theraspine for another therapy session.
After only 3 therapy sessions at NY Theraspine, I was finally able to open and close my hands and move my wrist again with ease!
During those agonizing days, I couldn’t help but reflect on a lot of things. I soooo missed moving my hand, that I told myself I’d go back in playing piano, guitar and even start studying to play drums when I recover! lols
Kidding aside, this experience made me realize 2 very important things…..
1. I’ve been pushing myself too much! I do enjoy and love what I do but of course, I must take time to rest and set limits as well.
2. I realized how important my hands were in doing daily tasks and that I’m so blessed to be given a pair of normal ones.
After recovering, I’ve decided to let go of some of the typing tasks which contributed a lot of stress which led to my wrist strain last Christmas. I’m back to traveling, taking photos and writing now, but I make sure to rest my body afterwards.
With the help of the wonderful people behind NY Theraspine (special thanks to Sir Pol Haboc, Ms Ruth Castro and Ms. Myra Vergara), I was able to heal sooner than I expected! I’m so satisfied with their service and professionalism!
By the way, if you’re curious on how much I spent during the sessions, the consultation and treatment for my 1st day was around P1,550 (P750 consultation + P800 PT) and the succeeding PT sessions were for P800 each (total of (P3,150). They also offer very affordable packages and accepts HMOs like Maxicare, Medocare, Intellicare, Asianlife, Coco Life, Avega and General Phil.
So when in Manila and looking for a reliable clinic to help you get rid of any physical pain, there’s really only one name to remember – NY Theraspine!
