I have been amazed with the results.
After trying many treatments for my foot pain with no improvement someone told me about Global Physical Therapy in Grand Blanc. I have been amazed with the results.
The upper part of my foot felt like I had a broken bone. Dr. McFarland explained what was going on with my foot and tendons. When I went to see him I could hardly walk and it hurt to put shoes on. He showed me stretching exercises and did dry needling. I walked out of his office after the first visit with no pain in my foot. I went on vacation for 4 weeks and walked 4 to 5 miles a day with no foot pain.
I can’t say enough about the wonderful therapy and treatment I have received.

Ralph, my physical therapist and I, have worked really hard together.
I loved the one-on-one contact with my physical therapist. Everyone was supportive, encouraging. I know I have to keep up with my exercises to stay healthy because Ralph, my physical therapist and I, have worked really hard together. I hope to continue to go to the clinic and use the Wellness Plan so that I can maintain my new health status. Thank you all so much.

There is a hard-to-define spiritual quality within his healing hands.
Ralph is an exceptional Physical Therapist. All of the techniques he uses to restore your physical body back in shape are excellent. There is a hard-to-define spiritual quality within his healing hands. His massaging and stretches removed my headache, loosened stiff joints, and relaxed the tension in my muscles. I was so impressed by the total body relaxation that I’ve made appointments two times a week.

Thank you Ralph for caring and helping me.
I, unfortunately, had a very bad experience with both a chiropractor and massage therapist. Between the two of them, my muscles and nerves became very inflamed in my neck, shoulders, and head. The doctor sent me to a pain specialist where I received two nerve blocks. Unfortunately, this did not work either. I was in excruciating pain with very limited mobility until my doctor sent me to see Ralph. The first night that he treated me I saw some relief thru needling. I have been seeing Ralph for 3 ½ months now and have seen a dramatic change happening with my nerves and muscles.
Ralph took the time to listen and explain what was going on with my body. Then thru needling, cupping, exercise and massage I am seeing results. I am not quite there yet, but I am getting there.
Thank you Ralph for caring and helping me.

I look forward to my therapy appointments knowing I am one step closer to getting my life back.
I have been dealing with leg pain for years it felt like it was my hip. I was referred to Ralph McFarland for foot pain by Dr. Singer. On my first visit, he explained how the procedure of dry needling worked and I told him about my leg and hip. Between him and Christina, they have given me 80 percent mobility and my pain has dropped. My foot is tolerable and progressing, I look forward to my therapy appointments knowing I am one step closer to getting my life back.

He and his staff were wonderful to work with:)
Ralph is an amazing physical therapist. He worked tirelessly helping me with frozen shoulder in both shoulders. He used many methods including the dry needling. After only 5 months, thanks to his knowledge and expertise my shoulders were all better. He and his staff were wonderful to work with:)
He will always be my go-to physical therapist and I will always refer others to him.
Ralph is an amazing PT. Fantastic bedside manner. Knowledgeable. Honest. Fair. Helpful. He cares about his practice. The environment is relaxing. His employees seem happy which means he is a good leader/manager. He offers flexible hours. He also does not suggest unnecessary treatment just to make money. If he thinks you need something he will explain to you why he thinks you need it and why it will be beneficial for you. He is never pressuring or demeaning. Also, I absolutely love the dry needling. Personally, it’s way better than acupuncture. He has helped my 65-year-old mother with her sciatic nerve. She was one month away from possibly getting another back surgery. He has helped my husband who has been in severe pain for 20 years. He has also helped me with my neck pain. I have been having this issue for 10 years. He will always be my go-to physical therapist and I will always refer others to him. I can’t believe that he only has 18 reviews as he is an awesome clinician. He definitely has a patient as long as he is practicing and I live around this area. If you are having issues I highly suggest you give him a call and give him a shot!

Dr. Ralph and his staff are warm and welcoming and truly care for your wellness.
Dr. Ralph and his staff are amazing! I have suffered from debilitating migraines for over 4 years. The range of motion in my neck and shoulders was so bad I couldn’t turn my neck without triggering a migraine. A Dr. friend of mine suggested I try some light PT & dry needling and OMG life changer!!! Dr. Ralph and his staff are warm and welcoming and truly care for your wellness. Thank you Global Physical Therapy.

I am so appreciative to be able to live my life more fully instead of being weighed down by pain.
I was sent here by my neuro doc because I get extreme migraines. I tried the dry needling and after just a handful of visits, they have gone from every day to just a few times a week, and much more manageable. I am so appreciative to be able to live my life more fully instead of being weighed down by pain. I anticipate with a handful more visits I will be able to get even more relief and possibly one day, it will be a once-in-a-while thing and let me live my life even more! The staff here are very courteous and helpful and the doc does not try to make money off you and do unnecessary stuff. He only does what he thinks will help you and explains how it will help and the costs upfront. I can appreciate that in this day and age. It is nice to see a doctor who really wants to help you and who appears to love what he does and care.

Ralph and his staff are top notch.
Ralph and his staff are top notch. My doctor sent me there because Ralph fixed his brother in laws back in just a few visits with dry needling. If you aren’t familiar with it google it or see Ralph, it gives you instant relief. For what it’s worth Ralph has a doctorates degree and is a true expert.

It was amazing. I would highly recommend him.
I have gone to Ralph for 2 appointments now. Great experience he is very personable. He is excited to help you and I felt that I was not just another patient on a schedule but rather someone he really cared about. He dry needled my back and I instantly felt the muscles relax. It was amazing. I would highly recommend him.
I was pain free for the first time in over 4 years.
Have had excruciating pain for over 4 years in my back at only 20, went to countless doctors and all they said was take Tylenol. I go to Ralph and in one hour he did dry needling and I was pain free for the first time in over 4 years. I can’t wait to go back again and again.
