As a Registered Nurse, health and wellness is something that I teach to all my patients. I also live by these teachings, practicing them daily in my personal life. After nearly two years of suffering from debilitating shoulder, neck, and back pain and decreased range of motion as the result of a sports-related injury, and I was desperate for relief. I had endured three failed attempts of physical therapy over the last twenty-two months, which only exacerbated the symptoms of my injury.
With no end in sight, I had two MRIs, an EMG, several X-rays. All negative. I had gone for acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, and orthopedic appointments extensively in hopes that I would be pain-free, and, at some point, be able to resume an active lifestyle. However, this was not the case. I continued to suffer in pain and began to grow tired and hopeless. Willing to try anything, I sought out a dry needling practitioner, and I was given Dr. Tom’s contact info by a referring therapist who explained that, due to the nature of my injury, I needed a physical therapist with an advanced skill level.
I contacted Dr. Tom to make an appointment, and I was extremely pleased with the results following my first session. I experienced a significant decrease in pain and in the mental anguish that stifled my hopes for recovery. I am thrilled to say that in just a short amount of time working with Dr. Tom, I have made significant and steady gains. I continue to improve each session after nearly two years of absolute hell. I am feeling much better these days, and I know that I will fully recover with Dr. Tom’s help and guidance.
Dr. Tom is very different from the “run of the mill” physical therapist. He has given me individualized, patient-focused care, and treatment for each session, which is what most will need but will not find at a typical physical therapy rehabilitation clinic. I can only say that I wish I found him sooner. He is a highly skilled therapist; a great educator, and he has restored my faith that I can recover. He has undoubtedly motivated me to do so.
As a healthcare professional, I highly recommend Dr. Tom. I will continue to work with him for all my physical therapy needs. Dr. Tom will work for you, keeping your health and wellness at the top of his agenda. He deserves to be recognized for all the great work that he does and for the healing services that he provides.

For those of you who don’t know Dr. Tom Naro; well…you should! There are several therapists who do the same thing for patients every visit. Heat, ultrasound, massage and give stretching and strengthening. All good things to do and incorporate in treatment. But with Dr. Naro you also get spinal manipulation or joint manipulation when your joint feels and in fact is, stuck. Have a trigger point or “knot” that you need to just go away? Dr. Naro is certified in Dry Needling which uses a very small needle, that you barely even know goes into the muscle, and literally a minute or two later the knot is gone! This takes traditional Physical Therapists or massage therapists several visits to resolve and involves a lot of pain as they push through several structures to get to the painful knot area. He also makes CUSTOM foot orthotics for under $100.00. So what I am trying to say is he is a true one stop shop with many tools to choose from for all your Physical Therapy needs.
You may ask why I know so much about Dr. Naro and his talents? Well I am a fellow PT who worked with Dr. Naro for years and he frequently treated prominent physicians in the area, nurse case managers, and I trusted him with my wife’s care (I’ve learned early on to never treat your spouse)! Heck he is who I had treat me! If you have your own Primary Care Physician, own Dentist, own Optometrist, you should have your own Physical Therapist. The one you choose may very well be the difference between getting better or not. So choose wisely and choose My PT… Dr. Tom Naro. You will not be disappointed. – Dr. Steven Coppola, PT, DPT/Founder, Coppola Physical Therapy

Dr. Naro has been a blessing in my life! For years I have suffered from various issues such as lower back pain, joint pain, and fibromyalgia to name a few. Under Dr. Naro’s care I have noticed significant improvement, higher levels of energy through the day and even longer walks. As part of the care plan there have been changes to some of my day to day routines that have made my life easier. I have learned to listen to my body! The seat cushion and lumbar roll have improved my car rides! The pain level while driving is still there just not as intense. The shoe insert gives me benefits on most days. It’s a matter of time before I get used to it. Overall I’m happy with the care, advice and guidance from Dr. Naro! You will definitely heal better and live better! – Carmen R., client

Dr. Tom rescued me from extreme pain re-emerging from a torn rotator cuff injury that was left untreated after the original injury. He used dry needling to release the horrible spasm that kept me from sleeping at night. Within 24 hours from treatment, the pain subsided and I was on my way to healing, the right time, this time! Back to my old self strength and getting the most out of my active lifestyle! Thanks Dr. Tom! – Melissa G., client

Tom was very effective in guiding me back to functional wellness. He is experienced in several modalities, and through empathetic listening, close observation and deep knowledge, he could address the issue from initial pain through recovery and then maintenance. – Deborah A., client

I work in the food service industry and am on my feet for long hours. My back was not holding up with the abuse to my feet. I met with Tom of My PT and he evaluated my feet, observed my gait and was able to fit orthotics for my shoes. Since then, I have less pain in my feet, legs and back and am able to stand on my feet for longer hours without being in pain at the end of the day. Thank you so much Tom for making it easier for me to work and enjoy what I do!! – Dede M., client
