A Sample of Patient Comments
Work Hardening

The professionalism of the staff is incredible.  Their knowledge and ability to guide and instruct you during your recovery makes this program unique.  I’m grateful I was afforded this opportunity. Qtr 1&2 , 2014.

I really enjoyed the entire staff. They are very well informed.  I trust them and they taught me the difference between good pain and bad pain.  I will truly miss you all! Qtr 1&2 2014.

I would like to say that the therapists at NWOMC saved my career.  By doing what they said and working hard with them I was able to return to my career as a firefighter.  The therapists at NWOMC are very concerned with your situation and strive hard to get you better, all you need to do is listen to them and do what they say and I feel you will get better. Thanks again for your hard and knowledgeable work on fixing my back. Qtr 4 2011.

I was told that I would not be able to perform my work below my knees.  Back on the job showed I could not. I am now able to perform such work better than before my injury. I had my doubts going into this program based on lack of results from previous PT. A week and a half into this program I could see that dedication to this program and applying what the personnel shared would in fact accomplish what I needed. It did!!! Thank you!! Qtr 3 &4 2014.

There are people who just show up to their job for a paycheck. While here I didn’t experience that at all. Everyone seems to love their job and they did it with a smile that made you want to return even thought sometimes you knew it would hurt. They’re amazing people and I’m glad I came here. Qtr 3&4 , 2014.

Pain Management

Thank you all so much for your professionalism and knowledge helping with pain control. Everything I have done here helps me everyday! Your kindness has been a blessing to me and I appreciate all of you.  As I have said before if my pain was gone I would give you all a 100%. When I have flare-ups the techniques learned here have give me different ways to deal with the pain. I can not express how much that means to me.  This program has made me hopeful again, because the first day I was here I was just going thru the motions. Today I am hopeful of better things to come. I will miss each and everyone of you and thank you from the bottom of my hear! Qtr 2, 2014

I appreciate the excellent staff that I encountered while being here. I also appreciate the individual attention that I was given to benefit my needs to control my pain.  Qtr 2, 2014

When I first entered, I thought there is no way these tactics could work. I was 100% wrong. This program has helped me in every aspect of my life. I have hope again. I can smile and joke around about my injury now. The pain is still there, but it is manageable.  The most important thing I have learned that “Its Okay.” Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. 2011

Each and every person I had contact with were amazing, kind, compassionate and knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you all so much.!  Each and everyone of you have touched my life in a positive way. 2014

This has given me my life back. I now have a future to look forward to.  The staff here was awesome. Very helpful, giving me many ideas of things to do BEFORE pain pills. I wish it could be a little longer. A lot of information for 20 days. But they made it work for me. I don’t even know where to start thanking them. gave me hope for my future. Thank you!!  2014.

This is, hands down, the most professional, respectful, motivating group of people I have ever met in a medical environment.  Not enough words to describe how grateful I am for everyone’s input and education geared towards making me a better and overall “whole” person, especially when I didn’t see this in myself to begin with.  Thank you.
