It’s not uncommon for physical therapy to be prescribed after surgery, or a serious injury.
 But maybe your story is simply an aging body. Tenderness after an hour on the court. Or a shoulder that has lost some of its flexibility.
Could you benefit from physical therapy?
These days, you don’t necessarily need a doc to find out.
Renue Physical Therapy offers a free 15-minute consultation to see if their services could make a difference. And if they can’t help you – they can steer you to someone who may have the answers.
“That’s why were’ here, said Jesse Siwek, Doctor of Physical Therapy, “We’re dedicated to providing the best patient care experience to the members of this community.”
Husband and wife, Jesse and Courtney Siwek, also a Doctor of Physical Therapy, enjoyed a soft-opening of Renue Physical Therapy, 4431 N. US-23, Oscoda, in October, and by February, were fully-staffed and in full swing ready to meet new faces, and welcome those with whom they have already developed a relationship.
Michelle Cliff of East Tawas first went to the office for help with her shoulder, but found that Jess was in a position to address her fibromyalgia as well.
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that involves widespread body pain and fatigue.
“If I can help someone from going through what I’ve gone through – I’m glad to do it! Cliff said. “First of all, Jesse gave me some information to read that no one else in the medical community had ever provided. It was new to me.
“And, they changed my life! He used dry needling therapy and the attacks decreased. Fibromyalgia can be debilitating, it’s painful and effects your sleep. You get brain fog. I am so grateful! I go in now, only for maintenance.”
Dry needling involves use of a fine needle to stimulate local soft and nerve tissues to accelerate the recovery process.
The addition of an Oscoda office saves folks from making the trip, who have been driving south to the couple’s first office in Tawas, on West Lake Street.
Additional Renue team members are Jill McCoy, PT, DPT, and Kathy Lott, Physical Therapist Assistant.
The Siweks offer a patient-centered practice with one-on-one care.
Jesse specializes in chronic pain, neurological disorders and sports rehabilitation.
Courtney specializes in pediatric physical therapy, and works closely with Tawas pediatric specialist Jo Studley May, M.D.
“We’ve been very well received and the news is getting out about us,” Jesse said. “We are excited about moving to an Oscoda location.”
According to Steven Armstrong, community liaison for Renue Physical Therapy, Renue has 17 locations serving mid-Michigan in Auburn, Au Gres, Bay City, Bridgeport, Frankenmuth, Freeland, McLaren Caro Region, three offices in in Midland, two in Saginaw, Shields and of course Oscoda and Tawas.
