Not only have Brenda's orthotics and recommended exercises remedied my foot pain, I'm regaining my arches and proper foot structure. I cannot recommend Brenda highly enough.
Oh my goodness! I wore the orthotics all day! No knee pain, hip pain, or lower back ache! YIPPPPPPPPEEEEE!!! When I got home and took my shoes off, my feet didn't burn. I could walk normal. My heels didn't hurt. No foot pain whatsoever! I can't even believe it. It's truly amazing! I just might be able to go outside with the boys now and throw a baseball or go for a walk after work.
Brenda! You are an angel. You are a miracle worker! I am so happy about these orthotics (I have teary eyes). If only you knew the pain my feet, knees/legs, hips were in before.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I had all but given up on my backpacking until I met Brenda. What she has done for me with her custom orthotics is unbelievable. I can now hike all day with a 50 lb backpack. I recently climbed the Middle Sister and without her orthotics I wouldn’t have been able to do it. Thanks Brenda!
My husband and I have seen Brenda numerous times over the last ten years for different problems. Steve went to her on three occasions because of acute back pain. Her treatments resulted in the pain going away almost immediately. Most recently, Steve's doctor referred him to Brenda for treatment for numbness in his leg caused by a protruding disc in his back. After one visit he experienced improvement, and now after following Brenda's exercise instructions for several weeks, the numbness is almost entirely gone.
I first saw Brenda for some shoulder pain I had been having for almost a year. Brenda did something she call Mulligan Mobilization with Movement. She positioned my shoulder and held it while I did a simple exercise. I got immediate relief from the pain. The exercises she gave me to do at home strengthened my shoulder to where I was soon able to resume my normal activities. Last year, after a visit to my doctor and getting a referral from her, I went to Brenda for some foot pain that I had been having. Brenda did a thorough evaluation and then made a pair of custom orthotics for me. The orthotics have made a huge difference in how my feet feel! I'm now walking and exercising daily - all pain free!.
In our opinion, Brenda is a wonder-worker. We've come to trust her knowledge, skill and expertise and recommend her to others we know who need physical therapy or orthotics.
Many thanks to you Brenda for the wonderful orthotics that you made for me. I have had several pairs of orthotics made in the past ten years for running injuries - none of which completely took away my foot pain. Yours Did! I stopped running ten years ago as the pain just was not worth it. I stand and work on my feet all day and now am happy to say I do not think about them or avoid activiities that could stress my feet anymore. Who knows - I may even start running again.
I am so grateful to you for your thorough and professional care.
I have had a painful sciatica problem for almost 10 years. I have tried Physical Therapists, Massage Therapists, acupuncture and daily pain relievers with only temporary relief. I was recommended by my doctor to visit Brenda Shelton PT at Stepping Out. After only three visits I was remarkably better and have felt no pain for 6 months. Brenda provides strengthening exercises and also showed me how to do a self treatment if my hip went out of alignment again. I feel great and enjoy regular exercise now without pain! I highly recommend Brenda. She is very professional and the most knowledgeable PT I have ever run into.
Brenda has helped me tremendously. She combines all the qualities you would want in a Physical Therapist. She asks the right questions, and really listens when you talk. Her 30 years of experience have helped her to be both an excellent diagnostician and a skilled therapist. Over the years I have been to many doctors and physical Therapists because of chronic back pain. No one has helped me like Brenda has. When I walked out to my car after my first treatment, I realized how great it was to have my body aligned correctly; it meant I could walk without pain! Thank you, Brenda.
Brenda is not your typical physical therapist. I've had chronic hip pain for several years and tried many modes of treatment, from lots of pain relievers to acupuncture and physical therapy. A referral to Brenda finally brought relief. Brenda spends the time to really diagnoseproblems. She is very interested in exactly what is happening from appointment to appointment, recognizing that there may be several interacting problems that need to solved. Brenda helped me to recognize the early signs of a recurrence, and gave me the skills to deal with it and keep a chronic problem from re-developing. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of physical therapy.
