This is a TRUE place for pain relief and healing! I can't speak highly enough about the care and concern Dr. Candy has given me! I am 67 years old and have had increasing knee pain for 6-7 years. I had been scheduled for knee surgery for "bone on bone" arthritis pain. Three surgical opinions later I ended up moving to St. Louis and found Dr. Candy. He truly listened to me and took me seriously!! What I liked was he was smart, thought things through, was well trained, compassionate, and explained everything to me in terms I could understand. He found the "root causes" of my pain. I learned that pain is multifaceted and that arthritis by itself does not cause pain like I had been previously told. I have been going to Dr. Candy for 2 months and I am already increasing my daily activities since my pain has been significantly reduced. I can shop again! I could barely walk around my house and now am finding it easier to get back into life again! Thank you Dr. Candy for being there for me in my time of need. Your quick response to getting me in for my first appointment gave me so much hope. I have no doubt I will continue to improve in my healing journey! I am forever grateful!
I was amazed at what incredible results I got in such a short amount of time. I have been to PT before and I felt like the treatment was pretty routine. My past experiences of PT treatment involved braces and “living with” the issue instead of correcting it. I had accepted that there were some things that were going to be painful for the rest of my life and that some of the activities I enjoyed were going to be diminished. Dave disagreed. Dave took the time to diagnose the underlying cause of my pain. After that he locked onto those areas with laser focus. Dave wasn't satisfied unless his results were substantial. His bag of “tricks” or methods seemed to be endless. I waited before I gave this review because I wanted to be sure the results were lasting. I can say with a level of confidence that this issue is behind me! I wish I would have had someone like Dave in the first place. I think Dave's vast knowledge, determination, ability to listen and ask great questions is what sets this PT experience apart from others. I believe that a visit with someone like Dave should be a part of everyone’s annual wellness check!
So grateful I have found Dr. Candy and Movement 4 Life!
I have been recovering from herniated discs/whiplash issues in my neck for the last year and a half. I had received several X-rays and an MRI, all of which confirmed there was an issue, but the 3 and then 5 sessions of PT that were prescribed were never enough to actually make the issue permanently better.
Dr. Candy actually LISTENED TO ME! He didn't make me feel like I was crazy, he understood everything I had been through and explained why my body was still in pain. He was than able to feel the neck, shoulder, back and body issues I was describing and advise how he could help. He talked to me LIKE A PERSON, answered all of my questions, and explained things to me when I wanted to know more. Appointment after appointment he continues to be a PARTNER with me in my healing journey. He has helped me understand the dysfunctional patterns that are keeping me stuck in pain. The standing, sitting, walking and sleeping posture changes I can make to retrain my body to a more comfortable position and provided hands-on therapy to work out the muscles and knots that are causing problems.
I have grown, changed and learned a lot while working with Dr. Candy. The biggest thing since my first appointment is that I had HOPE that I could feel good again and that this didn't have to be my life.
