Following surgery to remove a parotid tumor on the left side of my face, I suffered symptoms of nerve and muscle impairment that presented like Bell's palsy. Iwas assured, by my surgeon, they were only bruised and not damaged, but would take time to recover and advised face exercises. My recovery was painstakingly slow and as time lapsed, I became frustrated and disheartened at my progress. On a visit with my primary care physician, he thought physical therapy would hasten recovery. Ginger Physical Therapy offered what I needed. Dr. Merryn Mathew had such a positive outlook and her energy, knowledge and focus, allowed me to see drastic improvement almost immediately. The support Dr. Mathew has provided with her attitude, positive reinforcement and understanding, has been very instrumental in my recovery and I feel emotionally and physically revived. As I continue my physical therapy, not only has my outlook and attitude become positive, but I am seeing the results. Thank you Dr. Mathew for helping me.
Thanks to Dr Lim, I stopped feeling dizzy and can drive and do everything I want to do again. I'm 89 years old and I thought I had a stroke or something. My daughter is a Physical Therapist and recognized the symptoms. She scheduled me to see Dr Lim. After the first session, my dizziness went away. It returned again a few more times but not as intense. Now I'm all good after seeing Dr Lim for a few more sessions.

"I have been taking my son Eli to Ginger Fitness and Rehab just over a year- I was forced to find a new therapist after our other therapist became ill. I found Ginger Fitness in the phonebook. I have been very happy with Ginger and the whole staff. They have been a very caring special group who always looks for a new way to make therapy both fun and beneficial for my son Eli. They have always been very accommodating as well. I highly recommend them." - Diane 8/15/13
"Several years ago, I had an automobile accident, and suffered unbearable pain in my back, neck, and upper arm area which was caused by severe whiplash. Several doctors tried various treatments and I was on pain killer prescription for a long time. I was unable to reach my back; consequently, I had to switch to a front hook bra as I could not reach the back far enough and any lift chores were very ...limited. By the time I met Ginger, of Ginger Fitness Rehab, I was ready to try anything to rid of my pain. I reluctantly agreed to go through the physical therapy which was suggested by Ginger. Anyways, after a few months of her treatment, the pain subsided and I fully recovered less than one year due to her treatment and exercise. My physical condition has been absolutely great, and I can lift and carry my grandchildren, piggy-back with no problems whatsoever. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this confident, reliable therapist, Ginger, to anyone who needs help!" – Kimi - Circa 2005
"Letter to GFR: I just wanted to tell you and whoever does the therapy with Shaun that he is doing so much better than in the past. I had not seen him in quite a while and when I saw him last weekend he is walking so much straighter and steadier. He walks with more confidence and stamina. Thanks for all your hard work." – Sharon 11/2/2012
