Patient Testimonials

  • I could barely walk and had a lot of pain. Now I am able to walk, I have a lot less pain, and I am able to stand up straight. The "hump" that was on my back is almost completely gone.
    - B. Freeman

  • I have made much progress in rehab. I can now walk without a cane at time. I am comfortable climbing and going down steps. My flexibility has improved dramatically. I look forward to rehab. My PT guys are great and push me for better results.
    - R. Drake

  • Before I began therapy I could not manage picking up my toothbrush to brush my teeth. Now, 7-1/2 weeks later, I can hold and drink coffee, brush my teeth, and wash my head. I am still weak but I have made leaps and bounds in the past two months.
    - C. Miller
