After struggling with severe chronic arm and shoulder pain for 8+ months, with no satisfying medical diagnosis, I was referred to physical therapy. Having never been to physical therapy before, I reluctantly made an appointment with Oren Bar, whom I selected at random from a list of approximately 100 professionals. Luck must have been on my side, for I couldn't have found a more qualified and knowledgeable therapist. Unlike so many others in the medical profession, Oren truly listens. After only one visit, he was able to determine the root of my pain and symptoms and began a treatment plan which has yielded very quick results. Relief at last! Both my condition and I are being treated with great skill, compassion and patience. Thank you, Oren.

I had several Physical Therapists before I went to Oren, and I had given up hope in getting better for the pain in my fingers. Finally, on a recommendation from a friend, I decided to try Oren, even though I had to drive more than one hour to get to his office. It was worth it! Other PTs had tried applying heat and electrical devices to try to stimulate my nerves in my fingers, and rigid splints to keep my fingers immobile. But they never could identify what was wrong. In contrast, Oren is a truly gifted healer and possesses a vast knowledge of the human body literally at his fingertips. Using a variety of manual techniques, he carefully and methodically tracked the source of my finger pain to the nerves in my neck. Then he treated my neck with different stretching exercises and pressure points. Eventually, the pain left my fingers and I could work on the computer again without hurting. Before going to Oren, several doctors had told me that I would have to quit my computer programming job. Oren saved my career!
