From my first contact with Life In Motion after my surgery, they were welcoming, friendly, and professional. In my first 4 visits, I have increased my mobility. Adrienne Driggers Riveros is the hand therapist and co-owner and listens to my concerns. She helps me with my rehab and even re-dressed my incision & removed the staples! The entire staff is great. It makes going to therapy a pleasurable experience!

I came across Life in Motion in 2016 after a freak accident with my hand. I had surgery for a cut/damaged nerve and was sent to hand therapy for a period of time. That’s when I met the Life in Motion family, and I’m so glad I did! This family-owned business is run by dedicated professionals who are experts in the field of recovery and healing. They spend quality time with each of their patients, listening and understanding their concerns, in addition to sharing their knowledge and best practices. After a couple of months of therapy with Adrienne, my Occupational Therapist, I was able to do “normal” things with my left hand again, and started to get feeling back- where I didn’t have it before! I’m so thankful for the help of the Life in Motion staff, who got me feeling back to myself again. I am so appreciative of everything they did for me, and I highly recommend them!
I’m 54 years old and consider myself very active. I’m an avid road cyclist for over 14 years now. I recently developed numbness and tingling in both arms. My orthopedic doctor ordered an MRI which showed stenosis in my neck but not enough to cause the extent of what I was experiencing. He ordered a nerve conduction test in which surprisingly, I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel in both wrists. I knew right away that this was caused by years of cycling due to improper hand alignment and pressure on the wrists and thumb during long rides. I came to LIM and saw Adrienne after an online recommendation as a hand therapist. I wasn’t able to sleep through the night due to severe nerve pain and I wanted to avoid surgery if at all possible. I decided on Occupational Therapy as an alternative. I found Adrienne to be pleasant, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. She provided me a splint for my thumb pain and an at-home regimen to keep my symptoms manageable. Since starting my therapy, I’m now able to sleep through the night which was not possible before. I don’t believe Carpel Tunnel is “curable” without surgery but it is manageable. I will continue to follow her regimen and will also be mindful of hand alignment during cycling. My goal is to remain surgery-free. Thank you, Adrienne.
