Patient Testimonials | Mary Cox, P.T. CLT
Listed below are just a few testimonials from some of my patients. Over the years I have had the privilege of treating some of the most fascinating, complicated, and grateful patients in the world. In return, some of them have left me their words of gratitude for others to read (for obvious reasons, I can't use their names or photos).
In the words of my patients -
Mary Gave Me My Life Back!
I'm a runner with scoliosis that developed tingling, numbness in my foot. It eventually turned into nerve pain shooting in my big toe on and off everyday for more than 6 months. I was one of those that didn't want to spend the money, but dish out smaller amounts by going to massage and chiropractors once a week which still adds up, but the pain would return the next day. I've gone to at least 6 different places and no one had any idea what was going on with me, but now my search is over. She does therapy different than all the other therapy I've tried (Active release, graston technique, etc...) After the first session I didn't have any nerve pain for 4 days straight, which is huge for me! She knows exactly where the tightness is just by feeling. No x-rays needed! She's an expert at nerve related issues. Thank you Mary, you gave me my life back and I can exercise again!!! You truly have a gift!!!

My Miracle Baby Following Treatment!!!
Oh my gosh! I can't believe it was 9 years ago that I would have my miracle baby the following November after you treated me. She was three weeks early, but she was still big, healthy and beautiful! She is a little crazy, has immunity issues and is the most high strung kid I've ever met lol, but she's all MINE. And all because of your physical miracle. Mary Cox, you are a miracle worker!!

My body feels amazingly different, for the better!!!! Pain level is at a 4-5 by the end of the day when normally it would be an 8-10. I am so grateful, I can’t wait for my next appointment. I finally feel hopeful that my body might feel better again, that right there is HUGE. Today was the first time in a while that I didn’t cry due to pain Thank you Mary ♥

When no one else could help ...
I was in a car accident when I was 16 and since then I have had intense, sometimes unbearable lower back pain. I have had wrist pain for about 12 years in my right hand and that has affected both my "day job" serving and my hobby being creative … About 3 months ago, I had lost the grip in my right hand ... awful pain if my right hand wasn't completely straight. I also had intense pain while sitting, driving, sleeping, or laying down. Tense muscles EVERYWHERE, neck, shoulder, arms, back, legs. Anxiety on daily movement, thinking someone might accidentally hug me or touch me or move past me and hit a certain spot that would create unbearable pain ...
... continued from left hand side
But today I have grip! And NO pain in my hand AT ALL! Driving, sitting, sleeping has gone from a pain level of 12 (1 out of 10) to about a 3. I trust my back more than I have in years. I even sleep through the whole night and rarely wake. I don't freak out as much if my husband comes to hug me. I had no idea what to expect from working with Mary. But, in only 2 1/2 months’ worth of visits I feel better physically & emotionally than I have IN YEARS! Mary is beyond a doctor, she has this indescribable ability to listen to your body, and align, loosen, release, strengthen, and help heal you. I can't express how much Mary has helped me to become complete person again. I am forever grateful!

When no one else could help ...
"When no one else can help me, I fly to see Mary for evaluation and treatment. This is despite that I live in a large metropolitan area and have seen many of the most well-regarded providers. Mary is able to feel with her fingers what other physical therapists, massage therapists, osteopaths, and doctors miss. Within a few (albeit them intense) days, my pain level is down and my range of motion increased. If anyone else has adhesions, nerve issues, endometriosis, or chronic pain like me, I highly recommend getting to Mary."

Mary is a miracle worker!
"Mary is a miracle worker when it comes to specialized physical therapy. She has worked wonders on my many ailments, from post-surgical abdominal internal scar tissue, to sciatica, to horrible bouts of digestive-intestinal problems, and more. Her treatments have been invaluable for my daughter, a professional dancer. She has also helped my husband with cycling and exercise-induced physical problems. I once asked her how in the world she knows so much more than so many other doctors and specialists who were unable to help me. She said she attends a lot of weekend educational programs for osteopaths and other health professionals. She's a nerd, and I love her for it!

Other's raved about her healing gifts ...
"Mary is soooooo AMAZING. She is so knowledgable, friendly, and very efficient at getting results. I was referred to her by two different friends; one of them being a Craniosacral Therapist; they raved about her healing gifts. I came in for pelvic pain and within a few minutes of meeting her, she went right to work helping adjust me from the inside out - fixing areas that had been damaged from trauma. In addition - without me even asking her to do this - she did some gentle manipulations on my back. Later when I stood up, she had me look in the mirror and low and behold, my shoulders which had always drooped down causing me back pain, were now raised to a normal level. I was in alignment!! Wow!! Thank you, thank you, Mary!!!"

Mary gets adhesions like no one else ...
"Mary is the best. She knows orthopedic physical therapy, pelvic floor physical therapy, as well as techniques usually only used as well by massage therapists like cranial sacral, myofacial release, visceral manipulation, etc. She understands how parts of the body effect each other. She understands nerve pain like no one else. She gets adhesions like no one else in CA. I heard about her from a friend and traveled twice very far to get treatment from her. Each time with remarkable improvement."

I can not believe how great I feel!
"I can not believe how great I feel, vitality came back into my body. The last ten days I was so very sick and in pain, that even though I had pressured you to please see me, I actually felt too sick to make the drive from Los Angeles but I instinctively knew from the help you have given both my sister’s I had to make the appointment. I've had four medical procedures this year (left lung transplant, heart attack, then on heart-lung machine intubated 5 days, stomach compartmentalized syndrome). I was opened top to tail, front-to-back, then three clots removed and a deep wound ... over 6 months. You are a such a great healer that you so instinctively knew when all the scarring, tightness, lumps, knots blockages where. Thank you so much."

I was desperate for answers ...
"After surgery and being discharged from the hospital twice in less than 5 months, I was desperate for answers. The surgeons, specialists and doctors all told me that the only "option" was additional surgery for Small Bowel Obstruction. My husband and I prayed for direction and looked for alternative paths rather than more surgery. That's when we found Mary. I spent two weeks as a client of Mary's. I was so impressed and at ease with her. Mary is a gifted physical therapist. She was able to increase my range of motion, help my posture. The most impressive part of this therapy was that I could feel the bands of scar tissue/adhesions start to release and stretch. My incision sight had started to heal from the inside out and it wasn't as sunk in. After each therapy session, I would leave thrilled at the progress she was able to make. Mary was a answer to prayer and I consider her not only a wonderful Therapist but also a dear friend. Thank you Mary!"

Mary freed me of pain AND found the source
"I went to see Mary to help with some abdominal pain due to post surgical scar tissue. Not only did she free me of that pain, she also discovered the source of and resolved a chronic degenerative condition in my leg. I had sought help from other doctors for the leg problem to no avail. I have now been vitally pain-free in my leg for about two years since she treated me."
