I want to share my great experience with Sabine Hanamean and Green Tree Physical Therapy. I came to Green Tree PT literally limping and unable to bear weight on my left leg. I had been having recent trouble with my knee popping out of its joint in my left leg. But that is not why I initially made an appointment; the knee I had had a total knee replacement on, the right one, one year ago, was extremely sore in the soft tissue surrounding the replacement. I was a mess. During the summer, Sabine (pronounced Sabina) worked wonders. She performed soft tissue massage and cold laser on my right knee and worked to stretch my IT band. Through her therapy, Sabine strengthened the knee muscles around my left knee so my knee would seldom pop out of its joint. If it did, it quickly popped back in unlike before where I would be crippled for 45 minutes waiting for it to finally realign. But that is not all. Sabine gave me individual, one on one attention, for a complete hour at a price I could afford each week. It's not unusual to be given exercises to work on at home, but I felt completely encouraged to continue to do so by Sabine. She became a real cheerleader. She provided me with suggestions and was knowledgeable in recommending products that proved helpful in my rehabilitation. I may not be 100% and may need future surgery on my other knee, but I have come a long way with the help of Sabine. I am able to get around well, even hiking in the mountains. And I know I can return to Green Tree PT if need be, for future expert therapy.
Thank you, Sabine!

My name is Dianne. I am a hairdresser and have been having problems with my neck, shoulder blades, and forearms with a pain level of 10 [out of 10]. Since seeing Sabine at GreenTree [Physical] Therapy, my pain level is low, 1-3. She has helped me out a lot. Thank you Sabine!

"I never thought that I could be free of neck and back within a matter of 6 weeks, but this was my experience. After the first visit with Dr. Hanamean I felt instant relief of pain that had plagued me even after seeing a chiropractor for 2 years. Not only did she ascertain the source of my pain, but she also gave me the tools needed to stay healthy. In my mind she's a miracle worker!"

When I first met Dr. Sabine Hanamean and started working with her I was using a cane and walker for mobility. Her calm and pleasant tone put me immediately at ease and my progress began. Not only is she intelligent in her field, she knows how to apply the skill and knowledge to your individual needs. She encouraged me and built my confidence in ways no other therapist has ever done. I am now walking independently and driving wherever I need to go. Everyone is amazed at the progress I have made. I own it all to Sabine. She by far is the BEST.

I first met Sabine Hanamean when I was referred for physical therapy about a year and a half ago. I have a rare, inherited condition called Spinocerebellar Ataxia No. 6 (SCA6). This condition causes a loss of movement, coordination, and balance issues.
My first appointment was on a Monday and when talking with Sabine Hanamean about my physical therapy needs, she was not familiar with SCA6. This wasn't alarming because there are many health care personnel who are not well acquainted with this condition. However, Sabine was most eager to learn about and understand the challenges this condition presented for me.
When I returned for my second appointment on Wednesday of that week, it was immediately clear to me that Sabine had spent time researching SCA6 and tailored exercises to fit my needs. She worked very hard to help me maintain my mobility, balance and reduce falls. When Sabine opened her own practice in Garner, GreenTree Physical Therapy Solutions, I was eager once again to continue therapy with her. With her help and encouragement, I have reduced the number of falls I was experiencing. She always puts her patients' needs first, and is genuinely dedicated to improving their quality of life. I have had many physical therapist over the years, but Sabine Hanamean is by far the most knowledgeable. She is a therapist who is always eager to learn about her patient's challenges and search for effective ways to help them. Garner is fortunate to have such a qualified professional practicing here.

I am a fifty-five year old female who has previously experienced knee pain while walking or going upstairs. I was experiencing this pain daily and throughout the day with no relief. I was unable to power walk which was an exercise that I did quite often.
Dr. Hanamean adjusted first my back to be in normal alignment and used the roller to loosen tight muscles. I did not know at the time my back had been out of alignment and that had caused a lot of the pain to my right outer knee. With a list of exercises and follow up treatment, I am now out of pain and able to do theses exercises with ease. After my first appointment with Sabine, I had no more pain walking. I still felt a little pain going up stairs. After my second appointment, I had no more problems with stairs. Currently, I am power walking again and the other day I ran up the stairs. I felt like I was 20 years old.
I am very grateful for Sabine's knowledge and expertise in physical therapy. She is very caring and thorough in her evaluation and knows how to relate well to her patients and their concerns. She is very pleased when you make progress, which I found encouraging. I highly, recommend Dr. Sabine Hanamean for any type of musculoskeletal ailment. I have no doubt she can help!

I have had migraines and vertigo for over 20 years. I also have type I diabetes and fibromyalgia. I have been bed-ridden months at a time and have lost 2 jobs due to all my health issues. I have tried many procedures to find a cure. I had MRI's, Cat Scans, an Optical Block, deep intramuscular massages and IV DHE hospital stay for a week.
I had multiple SPG blocks (inserting a sphagetti-sized catheter through the nasal passage to release 4% lidocaine to the sphenopalatine ganglion, a nerve bundle associated with migraines). I have been seen and treated by numerous ENT specialists as well as neurologists. I took numerous medications for migraine pain, nausea and motion sickness. The procedures didn't work or relieved pain for a short time. I thought I had to just live with the pain and it would never get better.
A friend recommended Dr. Sabine Hanamean. I was exhausted and did not want to spent more money for something that would not work. It took me a while before I made my appointment with her. The first time I went to her office she wanted to get a full medical history and she found out that I had tried many things to get well. She completed an eye examen followed by a canal repositioning maneuver. My vertigo had drastically improved after the first visit. I learned that my muscles had shortened and my spine required realignment. My ribcage was stiff and all of my muscles were shortened.
I have seen Sabine now for 6 months with once a week visits, or every 2-3 weeks one visit. I have been headache free for weeks at a time. She has helped me to not be dizzy and to loosen the muscles that are tight.
She knows where I am hurting before I can tell her. She will try to find answers if she is not sure what to do at the moment. She loves what she does and wants to help people get well. I am so grateful I was directed to her. My life has changed for the better with her help. Since I have been seeing Sabine I have gotten off all my pain medication and the beta-blocker I was on. She looks at the body as a whole and not in individual parts. She is very patient and cares deeply for her patients. I drive 55 minutes to get to her office and it is totally worth it.
