Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome, also called median nerve compression, is a condition that causes numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hand. CTS occurs from scar tissue formatting and compressing on the median nerve.
Pronator Teres Syndrome
Pronator teres syndrome is a compression of the median nerve near the elbow. It is rare compared to compression at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome) or isolated injury of the anterior interosseous branch of the median nerve (anterior interosseous syndrome).
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a group of disorders that occur when blood vessels and or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) are compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck and numbness in your fingers.
Morton’s neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. Your toes also may sting, burn or feel numb.
A herniated disc (also called bulged, slipped or ruptured) is a fragment of the disc nucleus that is pushed out of the annulus, into the spinal canal through a tear or rupture in the annulus. Discs that become herniated usually are in an early stage of degeneration. Symptoms are numbness and tingling and radiating pain.
Foraminal stenosis is the narrowing or tightening of the openings between the all bones in your spine. Foraminal stenosis is a specific type of spinal stenosis. Nerves pass though the foramen from your spinal cord out to the rest of your body. When the foramen close in, the nerve roots passing through them can be pinched and damage resulting in radicular symptoms.
Piriformis syndrome is a condition in which the piriformis muscle, located in the buttock region, spasms and causes buttock pain. The piriformis muscle can also irritate the nearby sciatic nerve and cause pain, numbness and tingling along the back of the leg and into the foot (similar to sciatic pain).
Cerebral Vascular Accident
Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA) or a stroke happens when there is a loss of blood flow to part of the brain. Your brain cells cannot get the oxygen and nutrients they need from blood, and they start to die within a few minutes. This can cause lasting brain damage, long-term disability, or even death. Multiple issues can arise from CVA including sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body. Sudden confusion, trouble speaking, or difficulty understanding speech. Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance, or lack of coordination.
Gait and balance disorders are common in older adults and are a major cause of falls in this population. They are associated with increased morbidity and mortality, as well as reduced level of function. However, effective options for patients with gait and balance disorders include exercise and physical therapy.

Dr. Rey and his staff are great. The facility is beautiful and has everything you need to have a speedy recovery. My husband, daughter, and I have all been patients and have all received excellent care from Dr. Rey. I have been to many physical therapy offices and this is the only one I would recommend to my friends and family.
The office and staff of PMPT is welcoming and friendly. Dr. Rey really listens to your concerns and addresses them. They have a very relaxed atmosphere. They work well with every age group! My son and I have been very happy with our treatment and results.
Outstanding care! I had a crushed ankle, pins, screws and all. Dr. Rey took me from a walking cast and crutches to jogging, biking, skateboarding and more in just a few weeks. It is easy to get an appointment, you only see Dr. Rey and the care is personal. He did a good job of pushing me, but not too far. The office is new, clean and well set up. The staff is super nice and friendly.
