L.A.'s Best Healing Center – Years of basketball, tennis and golf without proper strengthening and stretching had left my 55-year old body a complete mess. Overly developed in the wrong places and structurally unsound. Two way too early hip replacements later and I was able to continue to abuse my body for years but it was all catching up and I was depressingly looking at a sedentary life for the first time in my life. Fortunately, a friend of a friend turned me on to PTPT and Vivian and I'm a teen again. It's a process and it ain't a piece of cake but the results are virtually immediate and I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Vivian is an old soul gifted at knowing what is wrong and what is needed to make it better. She uses a unique mixture of modern technology with old-fashioned butt-kicking to achieve remarkable improvements. The locale and the staff complement her with a perfect "going to visit friends" vibe. If you have issues with body pain, I can't recommend PTPT more highly. Log off and go now.
Heavenly Physical Therapy – I'm pleased to recommend all the folks at PTPT. Vivian is a very thorough, caring, and fun :) therapist. Not only are her hands-on adjustments amazing, but the array of equipment she uses (Lifestream, another vibrating contraption you stand on, other tools), provide a level of physical clearing/well being that I've rarely experienced. The massage therapist, Jason, is also fabulous. Very sensitive and intuitive. The massage was heavenly. If you want to feel present, balanced, and blessed in your body, visit PTPT!
The Brooklyn Healer Rocks! – Vivian Einstadt aka "Brooklyn Healer" is a miracle worker.
I have been to chiropractors, physical therapist, accupuncturist and massuese but after one treatment at Prevent the Pain I never felt better.
They have every possible contraption and Vivian knows which ones to use on you for what ailment.
I can't sing enough good praise. You will too once you go and experience for yourself.
Not to mention, she is a hoot!
No Surgery – I hurt my shoulder at a Krav Maga while sparing, the Dr's have been telling me that I will need surgery... well they were wrong, at least for now I am pain free thanks to VIvian at Prevent the Pain.
Thank you Vivian!
Not your typical PT! – What can I say about Vivian? She is not your typical physical therapist. I came to Vivian several months ago with a 7+ year history of low back pain, and more recent onset of shoulder pain. My back had troubled me for years with ever-changing pain: sometimes I’d feel pain at my SI joint on the right, then on the left, some days I would feel it deep on my right low-back, and other days on the left. About one year ago after returning back to school (going from an active lifestyle to sitting 8 hours per day) I herniated a disc in my lumbar spine. And most recently I was getting shoulder pain with elevation. I felt like I was beginning to fall apart, and I am only 30 years old.
I finally decided I wanted to conquer the constant pain that was interfering with my life, so I decided to focus on getting myself better. I have seen many physical therapists over the years, some good and others mediocre. All of the positive reviews of Vivian on yelp led me to her website. I liked her holistic approach towards healing, so I decided to give her a try. And since I am a student in a physical therapy graduate school program, I thought that if anything, it would be a learning experience. I had no idea what to expect….
Vivian will make you laugh, scream and cry all at the same time! Not only does she have hands on steel, but she is excellent at analyzing movement. I would say that this attribute has helped me the most of all of the physical therapists I have seen prior. She is very picky about movement, and in a good way. The most valuable thing I have learned from her is how to correct my posture while performing movements and what exercises I could do that would benefit me the most. She has given me the tools needed to take my healing process into my own hands. Yes, she can work her butt off using manual therapy to lengthen muscles or release trigger points which will help improve your ability to perform a task and decrease the pain involved in doing so. But it is then up to you to work your butt off in order to maintain that range and ability, and work on building strength.
One other thing I want to mention is that typically physical therapists spend 30 minutes with patients. The ever changing restrictions imposed by insurance companies on health care providers have cut the length of time for visits over the years. But Vivian actually spends a whole hour with you- this is definitely not typical in the modern day world of physical therapy.
The whole team at Prevent The Pain is wonderful. And Jason is a master massage therapist- I highly recommend him.
My shoulder pain doesn’t exist anymore, my back is better than ever, and my pelvis feels aligned (it hasn’t for years). Of course, a large part of this is me going to the gym regularly and doing my physical therapy exercises religiously. But Vivian is the person that has aligned my body, worked on my issues, and guided me to this point of being independent and pain free. Now it is up to me to maintain myself. I just have one bit of advice: You are the only one in control of your own health, so take charge of it and let Vivian guide you along the way.
Magic Healing Hands – Vivian aka Wonder Woman has the magic healing hands!!!!
I was recently in a pretty bad motorcycle accident. I was the victim of serious road rage. It was one of the darkest days in my life. I had a concussion with short term memory loss, 3 fractured ribs (one of the fractures was .25mm from spine... I could of been a paraplegic) and severe neck and soft tissue injury. Vivian was quick to work on me with those healing hands and got me to a place that would allow my body to heal. Her therapy cut my rcover time in half. They don't call her the Brooklyn Healer for nothing... She is the real deal!!!
Extremely Happy and Pain Free!! – I have to say that my experience at PTPT was wonderful and I wish I would have discovered them a year ago! Vivian is hands down the best physical therapist ever!! I had pain in my neck and shoulders and I was completely amazed at how wonderful I felt after only one visit. I've seen her several times and am so grateful to have found her. Thanks Vivian for "fixing me"! :)
Excellent – Vivian and her colleagues not only clearly know what they're doing but also make one feel cared about. Vivian (the Brooklyn Healer) has a fun but no-nonsense approach to physical therapy. You'll literally be in good hands here.
Prevent the Pain Therapy Inc. Rocks!!! – Vivian the Brooklyn Healer. She makes you work! She makes you sweat! She yells (with that hi-larious Brooklyn accent!) and doesn't give an inch! And gets great results. After three injuries from critical failures on spinning bikes in my gym over 7 years and other past traumas, Vivian has helped me strengthen my core and significantly reduce my lower back and hip issues. It's amazing to be able to get out of bed in the morning and walk without hunching over like an old man. She's really helped me get on with my life and move forward in a truly positive fashion. Make sure she shows you her Wonder Woman collection. Linda Carter has nothing on Vivian!!!
Physical Therapy Extraordinaire – Vivian and the Staff at PTPT are Amazing!! They have created a fantastic healing environment which nurtures you body and soul. I have been struggling with back pain for years was recently diagnosed with Sciatica. In only a few short weeks Vivian has transformed my body, my posture and my pain is completely gone! In addition, the deep work that we are doing together has brought about a personal paradigm shift that has vastly improved attitude and future outlook! I will be eternally grateful!! Love You Viv!!
