"After receiving a referral to Lycoming Physical Therapy, I realized they are not your typical PT facility. The entire staff is friendly, welcoming, kind, and helpful. The environment is upbeat and cheerful. The therapists are certified, highly skilled, and committed to your recovery and, the care and treatment are unparalleled, serving as a benchmark for others.
When an unexpected injury left me with excruciating pain and numbness in my back, leg, and foot, I found myself unable to walk upright, drive, carry out basic daily functions, or lift my legs without assistance. I underwent physical therapy elsewhere but experienced little relief and no lasting results. While surgery alleviated some of my pain, optimal living seemed but a dream. I was then referred to Lycoming Physical Therapy and "WOW!" what a life-changing referral it has been. Following an evaluation of my symptoms, Dr. Rob Burger readily began treatment with me, despite my complex situation and the potentially long road of recovery that presented itself.
His personalized treatment plan with me goes far beyond the ultrasound and exercises I was directed to do in my previous PT experience and includes aqua therapy, traction, manual therapy, core strengthening, education and much more. He has a keen understanding of how the body works and the mechanics of movement and balance as well as the complex pathways and relationship of muscles and nerves. He uses this extensive knowledge to uncover the most intricate causes of pain, bring relief, and advance my progress. Even when things don't go as expected, he doesn't give up. He observes movements, asks and answers questions, listens carefully, evaluates my symptoms, determines solutions, and provides guidance and care that not only produce results but further my healing. He has a great sense of humor and employs a balance of wit, empathy, and challenge that puts one at ease and enhances the treatment experience.
My road to recovery has been grueling at times. However, my work with Dr. Burger is definitely improving my quality of life. Since day one, I have experienced consistent and steady improvements. His commitment to my journey of recovery and long-term wellness has been unwavering and he continues to encourage me even through the occasional bump in the road. We remain focused on the positive and celebrate the victories, both big and small. Under Dr. Burger's comprehensive care, my pain is decreasing, I am rebuilding muscle, regaining strength, and restoring my flexibility and range of motion. The feeling in my right leg and foot is being restored and I can now move two toes. On a really good day, I can even touch my toes! I have a greater awareness of my movement and its impact on pain. Daily tasks are no longer out of reach. Many days I can take a shower, get dressed, tie my sneakers, make dinner, pet my dog, go to the grocery store, and drive to church on weekends. In the last month I've started to play my trumpet again, something I used to do every clay before my injury. I am able to go to the ball field and watch my nephew play baseball or go to the park for a picnic in the sun.
The therapy I am receiving at Lycoming Physical Therapy is putting the "living" back in my life. Dr. Burger's abilities are truly unmatched - a gift from God. My work with him is transforming my hope of recovery into reality and for that, I am and will be, forever grateful!

"I tore my biceps playing golf and working in the yard. My doctor did not want to do surgery so I looked elsewhere and finally had the surgery. I also needed physical therapy after the surgery to restore my range of motion and strength and to get back the use of my arm. I had heard good things of Lycoming Physical Therapy so I called. They would not guarantee the results but felt confident they could help me get my arm back and play golf again! It took several months but now I am hitting the ball better than ever and have great use of my arm. My surgeon was very impressed!"
- Donna Bastian (2007)
"I have used the staff at Lycoming Physical Therapy after 2 rotator cuff surgeries and then when I had to have my shoulder replaced. Each time they got back the fullest use of my arm and with minimal pain. It hurt a little but I could see the range of motion and strength improving steadily. They kept encouraging and challenging me until I could use my arm again! I love these guys and would recommend them to anyone!"
