“Over a two-month period of treatments, my knee improved and my pain gradually disappeared.”
When spasms of pain behind my right knee increased to the point that my knee became unstable and it collapsed unpredictably, I consulted with Dr. Frederick as to what my problem might be and what my treatment might entail. Her most careful detailed diagnosis of my case, which she communicated in a most understandable fashion and her concrete outline of subsequent treatment impressed me.
For several weeks, Dr. Frederick combined ultrasound with manipulation of my knee, massaged and stretched my leg/knee ligaments and muscles and adjusted my lower back; she also demonstrated to me muscle strengthening exercises to keep my knee stable and to improve my core strength. At each visit, Dr. Frederick listened closely to my observations, monitored my progress in terms of pain, flexibility and stability as well as encouraged and also instructed me with new exercises.
Over a two-month period of treatments, my knee improved and my pain gradually disappeared. I did experience a couple of small setbacks, but Dr. Frederick was readily available to intervene immediately to correct any new difficulty. I am very impressed with Dr. Frederick’s knowledgeable care and credit her thankfully with my continued level of high activity of distance walking, dancing, gardening and most importantly, lifting, carrying and playing with my grandchildren.
