Springtime is just around the corner! The birds are chirping and the sun is shining, (joyful sigh). With springtime comes a desire to clean, finish over-due projects, and start gardening. As physical therapists this is also the time we see many clients coming in with back, neck, hip, and shoulder pain. A combination of improper posture, body mechanics, and muscle weakness during spring activities is usually the cause of the pain.
We encourage you to be active and enjoy spring activities but if you start feeling any pain the recommendation is to take a break. You can also place ice on the sore area. If your pain continues we then recommend you come in and see us for some physical therapy treatment. Treatment will consist of pain management and teaching you strategies to avoid re-injury. The key is to not wait too long to come see us. The longer you wait the longer your recovery time is.
Call 207.990.2050 to schedule an appointment. You will need a referral from your primary care provider sent to our clinic before you can be seen.

"I highly recommend Teri Carr, PT. She is an extraordinary physical therapist and care giver. Her years of experience and constant continued learning make her an absolute expert. She is such a caring person and very effective. She works with her patients to find a plan that will work for them. She focuses on pelvic floor issues – including nerves in the pelvis. She is the only expert listed for the state of Maine for pudendal neuralgia. I am so lucky to have her as my therapist.
The staff here is also excellent. Everyone is upbeat and helpful, from the owner (Doug) to the support staff (Katie). I’ll never go anywhere else for physical therapy! "

"Teri Carr and the crew at Pouzol's Physical Therapy have been extremely helpful with dealing with my health issues. The Pelvic Floor therapy for my abdominal pain has increased my quality of life twofold and when I had back issues last year Teri helped me with pre and post surgery pain and recovery. The atmosphere there is a place of healing and the people are all very friendly and I consider them as friends. I would recommend them to everyone and come to think of it I have.
