The ScenarPT is a powerful instrument, and the training I received from Alan was excellent. I have had many good results, some spectacular. I am especially happy that I have something to offer to difficult patients who are hypersensitive or not progressing like they could. I am excited to have the ScenarPT in the clinic to help my patients and… read more
I started with Alan Finston PT about this time and by October 2010 I was pain-free. Northing else alleviated the deep ache in my leg; nothing had given me any relief except the ScenarPT treatments I received in his office. The ScenarPT seemed like a miracle cure and I am still enjoying my pain-free leg. I have no restrictions on my activity. read more
The sense of relief derived from a 1st–time ScenarPT application to her upper back changed the outlook and availability of this individual for the better. No longer was her skin so adherent to her upper back such that she could not easily move nor tolerate even the lightest of touch. She became free-er to engage in attending… read more
With an increase of frequency in visits, I am able to maintain benefits much more consistently. I have had the most success with neuromas and foot pain. Never thought that would be the case in all the years in the profession.
I am starting to look for consistencies of those that have miraculous changes….some that benefited with one or two sessions. One so far, has been previous level of function prior to the injury/condition. Most of those that have been competitive athletes have seemed to response faster and with more change.
I had been treated by doctors and physical therapists for chondromalacia patella, or knee pain, for about four years and always had to take over-the-counter pain pills just to make it though my routine as a mom. I received only one treatment from a family member who had ScenarPT with him when he visited us in Michigan. Ten days later, my knees are still great! They are not 100% but they are way better than they were! I have not taken Tylenol since receiving treatment. When I woke up the first morning after my treatment the first thing I did was walk up the stairs and it was only a tiny bit uncomfortable, nothing compared to what it normally is. I ran that morning and my knees were fine, I did ice them that afternoon because they were getting sore and I iced them after the race the next day but that is it! Normally I ice them every day once or twice and was taking Tylenol almost every day, sometimes twice a day. I can’t believe the difference that one little hand held device made. I am going to tell my dad about it this week since he has always suffered from terrible knee pain.
My 15-year-old son, who had undergone surgery to remove his tonsils and adenoids and to correct nasal septum deviation, had been in moderately severe pain and unable to swallow without pain for six days following surgery. He told me that his throat pain was reduced from an 8/10 to a 3/10 by the first treatment, and the relief continued for about 5 hours, until he went to sleep. He awoke the next morning and ate and swallowed with no pain at all, and was able to stop taking the pain meds that had been prescribed.
A 50-year-old friend who was a former collegiate golfer was 6-weeks post-op after a second effort to fuse the left subtalar joint in his ankle. After his first ScenarPT treatment, he said the relief was “amazing”, and “remarkable”. He said there was greatly diminished pain and increased range of motion after two treatments, and he was able to walk without the aid of a walking boot for the first time since the surgery.
I had been unable to run because of chronic pain in both knees following chemotherapy which led to damage to the bone in both knees. After getting one ten-minute treatment on each knee, I ran/jogged 1.5 miles without pain, and six hours later my knees were still pain-free. The following day I received another treatment to my knees and was able to run four miles without pain, and I had no pain or stiffness the next day. I had come to accept that I would never be able to run again after four years of chronic pain. I can now run and even enjoy playing basketball with my son without experiencing knee pain. I have enthusiastically recommended ScenarPT to others with both acute and chronic pain, and have heard nothing but positive comments about their response.
I have very bad allergies. I have had allergy shots off and on several times during my lifetime. I was 5 or 6 when they tested me and the skin tests of the time indicated that I was allergic to almost everything including milk and I remember that I drank ginger ale for over a year. Leaping rapidly forward, after retiring and returning to Las Vegas in 2000 it took about five years until I needed to see yet another allergist. The skin test indicated once again “everything.” The allergist wanted me to take a series of shots. He had already started me on XYZAL and Patanol for my eyes so I passed on the series of shots. My family physician again has written me those prescriptions and during the really bad part of the year for me – April through May or so, I double up on the dosage. Three years ago it was so bad I promised myself that next year ( which would have been last year ) I would go for the series for certain. But I passed again as well as this year. You should also be aware that my allergies manifest themselves mostly as eyes that itch so bad … I want to scratch them out of their sockets. This normally lasts for six or eight weeks depending on when certain pollens are in season.
Alan, here is where you quite possibly come in. This year instead of the six to eight weeks of hell, it has been more like 6 to 8 days off and on over the 6 to 8 weeks, and not really that bad at all. This year the pollen count has been the same – high, I have taken the exact same medicine except I do not have to take Patanol as often, and most days you’ll find me out working in the pollen or on my bike. To my knowledge … the only thing different this year was a Saturday and Sunday at the end of March where on Saturday you and your instructor gave me a 6 or 8 point treatment and then on Sunday it was followed up or expanded to what I believe you call the or a horizon which meant again, that you do the point treatment again and then you work the area from my nose to both of my ears. In any event, for the very first time in years it has truly been an extraordinary and wonderful experience this Spring and as mentioned, I have no other explanation than your treatments!
I do want to thank you again, and I am of course wondering if you have ever had a similar or perhaps someone with the same reaction, and last but certainly not the least, if you ever get a practitioner of your methods of treatment – ScenarPT in our area, I do hope I am the first to know.
There is more interest in our patient community. The word is getting out.
My wife remains pain free. My triathlete friend who ran the half ironman with me last month, had broken her metatarsal in the past, and with any long run will experience foot numbness, that last time for 4 months until sensation returned. After one session 5-10 minutes the day after we ran, she was 80% better and within a few more days was back to normal. This is a significant improvement.
I am sending this as an addendum to my survey to express what I really got out of the ScenarPT seminar.
Prior to the presentation, I saw ScenarPT as a passive electrical device that quite a few patients…have claimed to have helped them with their symptoms. I’ve got to admit, I was skeptical of using 15 to 20 minutes of treatment time for a modality that is not scientifically tested, and more so, using the treatment to replace other treatments I have found to have worked in the past. Despite the skepticism, I was intrigued at the same time by your energy and passion for using ScenarPT when you already have the mutual skills, experience, and knowledge that, I have no doubt, you’ve had much success with.
From the presentation, I got key points, that when put all together, made so much sense as to why I should use ScenarPT as a treatment tool. This is what I got out of it:
- ScenarPT is time efficient. I can us ScenarPT while I’m doing basic manual skills, teaching, and exercise. I will not have to replace any of my current treatments with ScenarPT.
- ScenarPT will save my joints. Been there, done that, had the problems, know what it’s like.
- ScenarPT is a flexible treatment tool that will allow me to use my own skills and intuition to treat the patients. Used to do that prior to 4 years ago, forgot what it’s like, ScenarPT can get me back on track with that.
- ScenarPT is wide open from a marketing perspective. Yep, even from a part-time staff, I can truly appreciate that this is a key point during these challenging times when insurance companies are cutting on costs and at the same time, paying other providers for services that PTs already do. No reimbursement to you, no reimbursement to me. We are all in this together. I got the picture.
- ScenarPT combines results of TENS, Russian E stim Quadripolar and Pre’mod, and biofeedback (and so much more) all in one portable unit. Not to mention that it may have a systemic effect bringing the body to homeostasis and balancing out all the energies (a concept that I have come full circle with in life).
- ScenarPT is relatively simple to use. 60-90HZ, brush, scratch the itch with bubbles, make it red, make it loud, and make it smooth. Give it a whaco for good measure. Treat till there is change. The end. I feel confident already. Kidding aside, I know there is more to it. But it’s comforting to know I can have relatively good results keeping it simple as that.
- ScenarPT WORKS wonders in conjunction with therapy treatments despite the lack of mounting evidence. I came, I saw, I believe. If the water looks steaming hot, it is steaming hot. I guess I can do without that “scientific evidence” that says, yep, 100 people dipped their index finger in hot water, it turned red with blisters causing a second degree burn, so the conclusion is “it’s steaming hot.” Not to downplay the importance of research, but now I feel from a sensible perspective, if most patients call it black, it is. Believe, and let the research come when it comes.
You showed us it’s possible to do an effective treatment in 25 minutes while still doing all the therapy we need to do. That sold me, I’m looking forward to giving ScenarPT a shot.
Thank you for your time in presenting ScenarPT in a way that I could grasp without all the gobblede gook. Thank you got your honesty about ultrasound. Light bulb went on as it made me realize, if I can spend time on ultrasound for other reasons, why not spend time on something that I may have a greater chance of seeing results with. Huh.
I was referred to…Physical Therapy by my doctor for my scoliosis, in May 2010….The results were nothing less that phenomenal. When I began treatment, I had begun to hunch over, and could not feel how to stand up straight.
Two sessions with a physical therapist recommending exercises and telling me how to stand was somewhat helpful, but I really could not translate the written instructions into the physical straightening of my shoulders. I asked to try the ScenarPT. After only one session, I was standing up straight. The results were instantaneous and immediate. Somehow, my body new knew how to stand up straight.
I would highly recommend…ScenarPT treatments to anyone with back problems, and motion or pain problems. Working with your own body feedback, this little machine can truly work miracles!
