Meet Cecil Glenn Moore

Posted on: October 20th, 2021

This post was written by Valerie Johnson

Let me introduce myself. My name is Cecil Glenn Moore.

After 31 years of fighting fires with the Dallas Fire Department and then 7 years with the United States Post Office, my body began to show signs it was giving up on me. My motor skills were declining and I was unable to participate in many activities I had always done. I was particularly having heavy tremors and pain in both my legs and in my hands.

I was referred to a neurologist who after close examination diagnosed me with Parkinson’s disease. He also prescribed me with exercises to do at home as well as Youtube channels who have programming for Parkinson’s patients. I am a very compliant patient and pursued each of these programs diligently, but the neurologist was not satisfied. I wasn’t either.

At this time the neurologist recommended the physical therapy program, The MIND Program, conducted by Valerie Johnson, PT, DPT. She came highly recommended so I gave her a try. My first few minutes were uncomfortable. But when I left I knew I found the right place. This therapist knows what she is doing. After just 3 sessions I am walking so much better and sleeping better at night. I really think she is a miracle-worker.

Addendum:

Hello Valerie I wanted to take a few minutes and thank you for all you are doing to help my Dad. 
When I reached out to you last year Dad was real low and felt like the disease Parkenson’s was getting the better of him. He has always been a positive person and when I would talk to him. He was down and I would say almost depressed. The trimers where taking hold some days and he would just want to stay in bed. 
He started working with you and now doing the weekly group sessions. He is positive. He tells me about the group sessions. My Mom is even telling me things she is seeing about the trainings. He tells me you work him and sometimes the day following your training session. He is still sore, but that is not bad it is a good thing. It means he is working those muscles and they are getting stronger. The trimers do not seem to be a present. Now he has days he has the trimers, but they do not seem to be as debilitating. He has a more positive attitude to work through them instead of staying in bed. 
I just wanted to thank you for all the work you do!! If you ever wondered does it matter. To this child of a Parkenson’s patient it does. It is everything!
Thank youMichele Salas
