Success Stories

Alleviate Pain with NO Side-effects

"Dipti's expertise, knowledge, and compassion help me to recover almost 80%. My ortho and ER physician pushed pills while she encouraged me to get rid of hydrocodone and gave me tools to manage my pain naturally. "

“I came to see Dipti after my R knee replacement. My knee bled from the incision for several days, and had extreme pain; that not able to sleep more than 1 hour at a time on my recliner. Not able to sleep in bed for more than 5 minutes. I was taking hydrocodone for 3 weeks post-surgery and was still not able to get any relief from pain. I went to ER and followed up with Ortho, but they didn’t find anything wrong with my knee. When the stitches came off, my knee was red, shiny, warm, and swollen. I wasn’t able to tolerate anything touching it, not even a soft paintbrush. Dipti’s expertise, knowledge, and compassion help me to recover almost 80%. My ortho and ER physician pushed pills while she encouraged me to get rid of hydrocodone and gave me tools to manage my pain naturally. Now I returned to working out 3 days a week at the gym, Sleeping in bed without any trouble except waking up to go to the bathroom. My knee does swell up at times, and pain has reduced significantly in duration, intensity, and frequency, but not completely pain-free yet. My balance is so much better, walking speed and endurance has improved significantly. Thank you, Dipti, from my heart.”

“I have had pain in my back, feet/toes, both knees, thighs, hips, neck, and shoulders for the last 10 years. I was without hope when I came to see Dipti in a wheelchair. My pain has gradually decreased in 4 months and significantly reduced in 6 months. I walk without a cane up to 2 miles and lost 8 lbs so far. I have rebuilt a lot of strength with minimal flare-ups. I sleep better, overall. I used to take 2 Advil and 2 Tynelol every day, haven’t taken any in the last four months. I love the thought process and principles I learned working with Dipti. Dipti is incredibly smart and educated in her craft. She is a good teacher and fairly patient while helping her patient’s to be goal oriented. “

She provided multiple strategies including yoga positions, which have been effective in managing my pain level."

I have noticed improvement in my right ankle which has been broken several years ago. I love the videos of the exercises and explanations. Overall I am happy with results and I want to keep going."
My name is Dave H, and I've known Dipti Patel since before I started receiving PT at the VA. She was my brother's Physical Therapist when he needed treatment as an amputee. Then when I had frozen shoulder symptoms I also became her patient. In my opinion, Dipti is one of the best physical therapists in Columbia, which puts her in the top of her field. Ms. Patel has developed a whole-body (sometimes called holistic) approach to healing, rather than just treating symptoms. For example, in my shoulder case we did work on the shoulder area with stretches and manual therapy, but included spinal alignment and strength, hip flexibility, relaxation techniques, and lots of homework to supplement the PT sessions. She and I both established goals, and with her encouragement and help they were all met! Dipti is a joy to have as a care provider. She is pleasant, witty, medically and worldly smart, firm when necessary but feels like a partner in the healing process. I have no doubt her skills and personality will help her succeed in her most recent endeavor -- helping folks with chronic pain live more fulfilling and active lives. Dipti is the BEST!

"Now my balance is a lot better; able to get in and out of bed and sit to stand easier, and I am able to walk up to 1.75 miles without any pain."

“I came to see Dipti for 6/10 lower back pain, R leg numbness, and restricted mobility of L knee for the last 30 years. Prior to PT, I was not able to bend over for more than 5 minutes to put the dirt from one pot to the other, had balance problems, and was not able to walk more than 1 mile. Now my balance is a lot better; able to get in and out of bed and sit to stand easier, and I am able to walk up to 1.75 miles without any pain. I used to sleep for 1.5 hours and now up to 3 hours at a time. I have learned that mobility is medicine. My wife is also going to Physical Therapy at the same time, and we compare each other. I loved the way Dipti explained things in detail and her step-by-step approach. She treats me as a person and not as a patient. I am 100% satisfied with her service. I look forward to Physical therapy visits because I see the improvement every single visit. Thank you so so much.”

In 8 sessions working with her, I noticed a significant improvement in the reduction of daily pain, more range of motion, increased flexibility, able to bend over, kneel and squat much deeper with a lot less pain. Not taking any pain medications currently. Dipti is a tremendous physical therapist that works with you on an individual basis. One of the BEST I have ever had! I enjoyed every visit and her visits were the highlights of my week.”
