Shelley, I owe you huge thanks for getting me on the right track and getting me to take my injury seriously. At first I thought that all I needed was a little ice and a little time to make the boo-boo better. It ends up I had a very serious injury and nothing was going to make it better aside from surgery. You are the one who got me in to see Dr. A. who then got me to see Dr. M. Without your help I’d still be doing nothing, in denial and hoping my injury would heal itself without surgical intervention.

I can honestly say Shelley changed my life 12 years ago. She was treating me for a fractured and dislocated shoulder as a result of a ski injury. Seeing that I was out of shape because of the injury, she suggested I buy a road bike. Well that began not only a new sport, but a new social life and level of fitness as well.
Of course this sport has its risks. Last summer, after a crash I gave Shelley a chance to try out her new colorful Kinesio sport tape on my other shoulder. It worked great and looked very cool.

I am an active person who has a passion for downhill skiing and cycling. Whenever I have pain or an injury that concerns me, I make an appointment to see Shelley Alper. She always makes an accurate diagnosis, and gives me exercises and advice that speed up the recovery. I have been a patient for over fourteen years, and am happy to have her as a medical resource to keep me enjoying my active lifestyle.

I have longstanding back issues, which have defined how I negotiate my daily life. After recently seeing Shelley, my 10 year back problem has been remarkably alleviated. I feel Shelley was spot on in targeting exactly where my weakness was, and she was able to give me exercises that allow me to have much greater flexibility. I am so thrilled and grateful, with how much better I feel, and am happy to extoll her virtues.

After being treated for various injuries, I can honestly say that Shelley is the physiotherapist that treats and prescribes so efficiently that relief is felt quickly, and pre-injury mobility is attained without feeling like there is nothing happening over long periods of time. Shelley’s there to help, and doesn’t prolong treatment, saving unneeded time and cost.

I was referred to Shelley Alper to help me heal my broken femur following surgery. Initially, I could not walk normally and was limping constantly. Through Shelley’s guidance, I was able to overcome a lot of obstacles in the 8 months since I’ve been treated by her. The healing process proposed by Shelley included very precise exercises and constant adjustments depending on my body’s response to these treatments.
Here we are, 8 months later and I can say that my hip is 90% healed and I would not hesitate to recommend Shelley to anybody who has problems with body movement or for post-operative care.
Thank you Shelley for your guidance and patience and bringing me back ahead of where I was prior to my surgery. Cheers!!
