I am a serious competitive runner over over 10 years and am not a stranger to injuries, but in the Spring of 2013 I experienced the worst injury of my career. My IT band caused me so much pain that I couldn't run at all, and like any athlete, I worried if this injury would keep me from training and competiton. I was referred to Proactive Sports Rehab and my problem areas were immediatly addressed. It turned out that my hips were misaligned and have been for a while. The team at Proactive Sports Rehab in Orchard Park gave me hope that I would get better and be able to run without pain again. Jeff Kirchmyer worked with me one on one teaching me strengthing excerises and stretches to help me increase my flexibility, heal, and prevent this injury from happening again in the future. Proactive Sports Rehab is also one of the only Physical Therapy establishments near me that is able to perform ASTYM. ASYTM removed the unwanted scar tissue around my injury and reduced my pain significantly after about 6-8 treatments. I went to Proactive Sports Rehab for 3 months straight, and I left pain free and stronger than ever before. With the knowledge I gained from Proactive Sports Rehab, I was able to compete in every race during my senior cross country season pain free. I also was able to accomplish all my goals that I thought would never be possible due to my injury. Proactive Sports Rehab is now my go-to Physical Therapy location, and I completely trust everyone there with addressing any issues that may come along in the future. My running career was restored due to the amazing service, knowledge, and attention provided to me at Proactive Sports Rehab.

In 2012 my wife was having some work done by Jeff. I asked if he worked on headaches and he said he would try to help me.
I had severe headaches since I was young similar to migraines and he had me come for two visits and we waited to see what would happen. They were relieved and I haven't had any for over a year. It was well worth the try.

Jeff was brought to my attention by my doctor because I was having a balance problem. He cleared up my problem in two visits.
In October 2013 I tripped and fell in my garage and broke my shoulder in 4 places. After 7 weeks in a sling I started PT with Jeff. He was extremely gentle and he and his team worked on me with great knowledge. My arm is doing extremely well and I would be the first to suggest him. He has done great work on me and with great results.

Thank you for all you've done for me during my stint at "PT." You were always kind, polite, and added a hint of humor to every visit.
