"I've had an annoying clicking and popping shoulder for a few years now and never got it looked into because I was dealing with a bigger health issue which took precedence. The other issue has been resolved and the shoulder grew more annoying then ever and was effecting my workouts. I asked Peter if he would assess my shoulder as I was worried that it was impinged or torn like my hip had been. He diagnosed it as impinged and slightly frozen and gave me mobility exercises to do and performed manual manipulation a few times for me as well. My shoulder gives me a lot less grief now, my range of motion has increased and there's less pain as well. I would highly recommend him for your physical therapy needs!"
"This was my first experience with back pain. It’s quite upsetting, extremely painful, you honestly believe that you will never be back to normal. I have had Therapy before for a different problem and I was scared to death because of my negative experience with them. I went there four times and saw a different therapist each time and none of them new my name and I was just one of many. I felt like a number there and stopped going there. To stay I have been ecstatic with your office, puts it mildly. Your approach has been through, physically, verbally, videos, explanations, plenty of personal hands on. I had complete confidence in your professional approach and personal concern. I knew I would get back to “Normal”, absolutely wonderful. I recommend you to anyone and everyone!"
"I injured my neck overdoing it at the gym and got this constant nagging pain that went from my neck to my shoulder and upper arm areas on my left side. I tried everything that I could think of to lessen the pain ie salonpas, ointments ,OTC meds that I hate taking and nothing worked. Since seeing Peter for treatments my quality of life has dramatically improved. I can now do all of the things I used to do at the gym, love being with my friends and I'm getting back in shape. The thing I like the most about my therapy sessions with Peter was how pain free they were and how easy the process was. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone wanting to get back to doing their activities or sports that they love or are important to them with ease and pain free."
"This is a very happy New Year for me because each day when I awake I am extremely grateful to be of robust health and pleasant sense of humor. There is one thing I am sad about, however.…. I will miss all the great therapy sessions that helped me recuperate fully after a tumble form my horse. I would never had guessed that my recovery would be so thoroughly compete. My hat is off to you, Peter for running such a top flight office. You offer that rare combination of thorough professional knowledge and human interest which plays such and integral part in any injured persons successful therapy. I am back to jumping with my horse a lot faster than I thought I’d be and, as I hop over hill and dale, I will always have happy thoughts of you. Thank you so much for your contribution to my rebuilding process."
Peter Chirico is Kailua and Oahu’s leading Physical Therapist who helps people in their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond get back to doing the activities that they love and are important to them Naturally with No Unnecessary Physician Visits, Medications, Tests, Painful Injections or Risky Surgeries. He founded Chirico Physical Therapy and Wellness because he has always been passionate about helping people starting with his first class in Physical Therapy school to the present.
He still remembers that day in PT school when he realized that he had found something worthwhile to do with his life. Over the years he watched the healthcare systems increasingly become over-regulated. He watched insurance companies structuring their systems to create more obstacles and hoops for everyone to jump through to just get access to treatment. In many ways Insurance Companies arbitrarily dictate or influence what treatments they will cover.
He realized that the current Insurance business based model of healthcare was not going to change for the better and was destroying the healthcare provider’s abilities to provide the type of services best for the patients. He found that the only way to put patients interests first was to start a new treatment model of practice.
Mr Chirico graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Physical Therapy in 1976 and addended graduate school at the USC, CA Rancho Los Amigos Hospital Campus in 1977 to 1978. Mr. Chirico has always been very active in taking Continuing Education Classes and is constantly wanting to learn new concepts and techniques of patient care to stay current.
