Ratings for Bryan Kuhlman


I had severe low back pain and left leg weakness due to multiple levels of bulging discs and herniations. I could not sit for more than a few minutes, walk for more than 50 feet, and could not do my job. I was on short term disability for close to 4 months. My MD recommended me to have surgery, which I refused to have. I had therapy in two different places, then a faculty professor at Oakland University recommended me to see Bryan Kuhlman. Bryan is an Oakland graduate and OMPT certified. He took his time and explained the process of healing. He focused on mobilization to improve individual spinal segment mobility without aggravating the herniated/bulged discs. In every visit, he spent a great deal of his time mobilizing and manipulating my spine. Then after my back motion improved he instructed me in specific functional exercises that were tailored to me. His hard work and effort paid off and now I can walk for more than half an hour, I can sit for more than a couple hours and I am back to work full time. I feel so fortunate to have had Bryan as my therapist and I am so glad that I didn't choose the surgery option. I was also very satisfied with the support I received from the PT aids, especially Drake. THANKS to BRYAN and HIS STAFF!!!!
