For months, I battled a frustrating knee injury that had prevented me from running pain free. After the healing progression of my injury appeared to have stalled, I decided to try Gesik PT after hearing great things about their treatments. The first time I went to them, Patrick confidently told me that I should be able to get back running in a few weeks after several treatments. He said that he would relax the area and increase strength. I was skeptical because my “healing” seemed to have stopped. His team treated my knee with their amazing techniques and taught me exercises that increased flexibility and strength that would take the load off of it. He was right! In a few weeks, I noticed the treatment plan was working because the pain I felt became duller and duller. After months of minimal progress in my knee pain, I had hope in a few weeks! Today, I can’t even feel any pain when I press the area that was injured. Now I am able to run with a smoother stride and no limp!" -J.L.
I am a triathlete/cyclist with 25 years in the sport. I have suffered from chronic, intense burning in my foot during long bike rides. This condition has negatively impacted my cycling performances in very important races like the Ironman World Championships. I have spent thousands of dollars in search of a solution to this problem. I have tried bike fittings, different pedals, shoes, saddles, and orthotics. As a last resort, I sought Dr. Elizabeth Ignacio to inject cortisone in hopes of a remedy. She didn’t feel that the condition warranted that type of treatment and recommended that I see Patrick. I have been seeing Patrick for 3 months. In that short time, the results have been immediate. For the first time in years, I have completed a 3.5hr intense bike ride with no foot pain! If he can help with an obscure condition like the one that I have suffered from, I think there is no ailment he cannot cure. I highly recommend Patrick for any and all sports injury related issues if you want results." -A.W.
I came to see Patrick post ACL surgery. I had come from a different physical therapist, and they hadn't given me the proper rehab for my knee. I lacked range of motion, and I wasn't recovering at the pace I should've been. Patrick and Osho worked with me to make sure I got back on the field by soccer season. I made a full recovery 2 months earlier than expected. Gesik Physical Therapy helped me back on my feet and gave me the confidence to get back on the field" -K.I.
After successful rotator cuff surgery, I could barely move my arm and I hurt despite the pain medication. So going to my first PT session with Patrick was scary, especially because of my friends’ vivid stories about the agony they endured at their PT. My experience at Gesik Physical Therapy was blissful. Little by little, Patrick worked on my arm and worked with me. The results were steady and measurable. Patrick’s explanations about the course of therapy, the specific procedures, and my homework were clear and understandable. He, along with everyone else in the office, are professional, warm, and caring. Now, several months after my surgery, I am pain free and I’m back to doing what I care about—taiko, yoga, and dance. I am so grateful to Patrick’s expert therapy." -F.W.
Patrick provided me with a variety of therapeutic massages and stretches to heal my injured knees. Along with very beneficial strengthening exercises, his physical therapy worked wonders to get me back to running, tennis, and hiking." -J.V.
Over the past 12 months I have received outstanding treatment from Patrick for two different injuries. In each instance, Patrick was able to accurately diagnose and effectively treat the problem and, following his advice and guidance, I was able to continue to train to achieve my triathlon goals. Personable and professional, I highly recommend Patrick if you wish to receive a sympathetic and sincere approach to injury management and treatment." - Gary L.
In my pursuit of becoming a professional ballroom dancer I tore my ACL. After surgery I later developed patella tendonitis in my other knee due to overcompensation. After a year of trying out various types of treatments I was referred to Dr. Patrick Gesik. After only two months of therapy he was able to relieve the tension in my knee. He is one of the best doctors I’ve had and would gladly recommend him to any athlete." -R.S.
I initially went to Gesik Physical Therapy for treatment for plantar fasciitis and carpal tunnel. After a few visits, I could immediately feel the results! Patrick has a gentle touch and the manipulations didn't hurt. I was so happy I didn't need any surgery for the carpal tunnel. A few months later I once again found myself at Gesik Physical Therapy for whiplash. Patrick took care of me and I feel great! I am recommending him to all my friends and family!" -D.O.
Oshoさんの治療は、私の想像とは全く違っていて、痛い箇所を静かに押さえます。例えば私が通っていたカイロだと、激痛をこらえてこらえて治るのですが、Oshoさんの治療は痛みが全く無くて「何をしてるのかな？効果があるのかな？」といった感じです。それでも、痛みによっては、すぐに痛く無くなっていく事もあって、何度通ってもびっくりします。 怪我をしている間にも筋肉量を減らしたくのと、再発を防止したいので、その為の運動も教えて頂きました。この運動の何が良いのかを説明してくれるのでやる気になります。 そして、いつからランニングを再開しても良いのか、どの程度の負荷をかけても良いのかなども、様子を見てはっきりアドバイスを頂けます。これは本当によかったです。今までは私自身が感じる痛みだけを参考にしてきたのですけど、怪我の状態を確かめながらアドバイスを貰えるというのは、本当に安心でした。 言葉の面でも良かったです。日本語でも中々伝わりにくい事もある身体の事です。痛み方や違和感を説明する時、今の状態を教えてもらう時、日本語というのは本当にありがたかったです。
