Check back soon to see the nice things our patients have to say about us.
Rick and his team have been wonderful. They listen and always seem to get to the problem. Rick explains all treatment and makes sure you are doing your exercises at home properly. My shoulder recovery has come along perfectly and I know my recovery would not have been as successful without Body In Balance.
I first met Rick Olderman at Body in Balance several years ago. My doctor sent me to him because I had been suffering with sciatica for several weeks, not sleeping, and unable to walk.
My husband pushed my wheelchair into Rick’s office. Rick smiled, looked into my eyes, and said, “Nancy, we can fix this. This pain will soon be gone.”
In one visit, Rick diagnosed the problem and sent me home with exercises to strengthen weak muscles and remain pain free. I pushed my wheelchair out! I returned a few times to make sure I was healing. The sciatica never returned.
I appreciated the quiet, gentle, caring and professional courtesy of all the staff at Body in Balance. They never fail to be respectful!
Over the years I have returned several times for help with injuries or movement issues. Every time, Rick has been able to evaluate the problem and set me on the path of healing.
I have sent several friends to Body in Balance PT and not one has ever been disappointed.

Rick’s analysis was extremely thorough. For the first time, someone was not only confident that they could take the pain away, but explained why the pain was there. As it turned out, the answers were in places no one had suggested before. After the first visit, the pain was significantly improved.
The most impressive thing about my treatment was that instead of just manually fixing me, he gave me exercises to fix the problem. With a little commitment, I now have the tools to be pain free forever. That is a breath of fresh air. I can’t recommend Rick’s services enough…
I cannot thank you enough for the individualized treatment that you provided to manage my neck and back issues.
Your innovative therapy was surprisingly effective to treat acutely the common problems related to bad posture and musculoskeletal pain.
I hope your novel techniques can be spread to others in your area so they can also learn how to apply them to their patients.

I have broken many bones and had 9 surgeries by the time I was 27. Needless to say, I have worked with many physical therapists; none of them comes close to the greatness of Rick Olderman. He genuinely cares about fixing your pain and helping you to better understand your body.
I have had chronic neck and shoulder tension for almost 7 years. I went to chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, etc, but nothing completely relieved it, and some suggestions, like strength training, made it worse. Rick, based on my description of symptoms sent by email, suggested somatics, which I did, but while it proved useful in relieving tension, I still knew something was missing because why did I have chronic tension in the first place? I would also often get up in the morning with neck pain.
In a skype session with Rick, he noticed things that were wrong with my posture that were affecting my neck and shoulders. He suggested a very simple modification in my posture and in a few days, after constantly reminding myself to maintain this posture, I noticed much less neck and shoulder pain. I also do not get up with neck pain even when I sleep in a position other than on my back at night.
He has an amazing ability to determine how your biomechanics and movement patterns cause pain and above all, knows how to give simple directions to fix the issue. It amazes me that I have used hundreds of yoga and pilates videos that constantly tell you what to do with your stomach and shoulders, but it turns out none of those directions were right, or useful for me.
My name is Yuko W.,
I was born with a severe right hip deformity and one 3cm shorter leg. In 2004, my left side hip wore out due to extensive compensation for my deformed right hip and had my 1st hip replacement surgery. In 2008, my problematic right hip finally wore out as well and had my 2nd hip replacement surgery.
After both surgeries, I did experience some pain but nothing like the horrible pain that I was experiencing which started in December 2004. I’ve seen 3 doctors who are all known as orthopedic experts including my own surgeon who has operated my right hip. I was disappointed that none of them tried to touch my legs or even look at them. All they did was look at the test results on the paper and told me there is absolutely nothing wrong with me.
Numerous tests conducted included: X-rays, MRI, Bone scan, Blood test…etc. everything came out negative and normal. I went to see a pain specialist who told me it is caused by my diabetes and if I don’t bring my A1C down this pain will never go away. I’ve used up my insurance coverage for physical therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic treatments so I had to pay all treatments out of my own pocket. Taking powerful pain medication multiple times a day, every day started to worry me for possible damage to my internal organs. But if I didn’t take them I could not even move and would be screaming in pain.
One day, a good friend of mine introduced me to Rick’s book and told me that he believes Rick is the one who can help me with my condition. I immediately started to read the book and even before finishing the book, I emailed Rick for an appointment. I was so excited when Rick immediately replied me back and booked me to see him. He said 3 appointments will do. I thought “what just 3? Really? How?” A miracle happened on the very 1st appointment day. Rick figured out what my problems were even without looking at the X-ray. My pain was actually tolerable after Rick’s treatment all evening without any pain meds for the very first time in 9 months. It was unreal. I have been suffering with this crazy pain for NINE long months every day, every hour and every second.
Rick told me how I was not walking properly and using wrong muscles probably for my entire life. He showed me how to walk by using the correct muscles, strengthen my weak legs and exercises that help target where my problems are.
I have been PAIN MEDICATION FREE for weeks now. My pain is under control. I do my exercise every day and plan on continuing it forever!
Rick has given my life back. Thank you so very much Rick!! From the bottom of my heart.
