I highly recommend Rogan Taylor at Fyzical. I went to him initially for one thing, but he ended up helping me recover from something I thought I'd have to live with for the rest of my life. About ten years ago when I was in my mid-20s, I was diagnosed with Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency (VBI). Every time I turned my head past a certain point, it would cut off the blood flow to my brain. This caused vertigo, weakness and and loss of vision which would correct itself when I turned my head back into a neutral position. Over the years I've been to several doctors, including two neurosurgeons. The solution, I was told, if I didn't want to have a risky surgery, was to stop turning my head. So that's what I did. I tried not to turn my head unless it was absolutely necessary. But as a young mother of four children, it wasn't easy. I was plagued with debilitating headaches and neck pain. I finally read online that physical therapy was helpful in reducing symptoms of VBI, so I went to a physical therapist that my father recommended up in South Jordan. That PT helped me stretch and strengthen my muscles, which eased my pain, but didn't help the dizziness, etc, which I felt when turning my head, so eventually I gave up on it. Last summer I injured my shoulder in a mountain biking wreck, and after a couple of months of pain, I decided to see a physical therapist. Several people recommended Rogan Taylor, but I didn't want to go to him initially because he was an out-of-network provider on my insurance. I called anyway to see how much they would charge and as it turns out, they offer a discount for self paying patients, so it ended up being affordable. I went to Rogan looking for help with my shoulder. I was convinced that my VBI, headaches and neck pain were lifelong afflictions that I would just have to deal with. Not only did Rogan fix up my shoulder, but he's helped me with my neck and upper back, which were a mess, and now I hardly ever have symptoms of VBI. Apparently, years of not allowing my head to turn had locked up my vertebrae and caused inflammation that was blocking blood flow and exacerbating my VBI. Thanks to Rogan, I have full range of motion in my neck and now I know how important it is to keep it moving. I still get headaches occasionally, and when I feel one coming on, I go to Rogan and he gets my joints moving properly again and my headache subsides. Besides Rogan being awesome, the staff is helpful and accommodating and the techs are friendly.
