“As a patient of the Institute of Physical Therapy and Fitness, I would like to tell you about my experience there.
A few months ago, I had a total shoulder replacement. I had been unable to use my arm for two years before the surgery, so I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. After the surgery, I was not able to move my arm at all and it was extremely painful to even try.
Thanks to the expertise of my therapist, my ability to regain movement of my arm in every way – which seemed impossible at first – gradually became possible – and eventually, easy.
Today, I have no pain and my arm is totally functional!
And I must mention the awesome staff at the Institute of Physical Therapy and Fitness. They are so kind, caring, and friendly, you feel as if they must have been hand-picked. By the time I had finished with my therapy, I had such mixed feelings…so happy to have accomplished my goal…but sad to say goodbye to these terrific people!”
“You can sum up my success story with one word, ‘support’. When I arrived at the Institute of Physical Therapy I had suffered a severe injury, was unable to weight bare or walk on my left leg, and was pretty demoralized and apprehensive about what happens at P.T. From the very first day, all the employees were supportive, friendly, and constantly engaged in positive encouragement. You knew they cared as they explained in an upbeat professional manner where you were at, what was going to be don and a time frame for where you were going. Through the program, I progressed from totally dependent to an independent person able to walk again. I had total confidence in the expertise of the employees, as I watched them work with me and others in the gym. The encouragement and explanation about each exercise helped me better understand my situation. Thanks to the Institute of Physical Therapy my attitude has greatly improved and I have a much better outlook on the future.”
“When a senior in high school basketball player, I zigged when I should have zagged and blew out my left knee. Through the ensuing years the knee deteriorated until this September it become necessary to replace it with an artificial one. I cannot thank the staff at the Institute for their care and challenge to improve, enough. They were great. Larry at the ‘wailing wall’ and Ardeth consistently helping me stay on task…all with humor and personal interest…’were very special.’ Thank guys.”
“I sprained my right ankle at work on December 13, 2006. I was on bed rest until January 3, 2007 when I began physical therapy. When I started P.T. I came in using crutches but after just a few sessions I was able to walk in, albeit slowly.
The care I received at IPT was incredible. I quickly began using my injured ankle more than I though possible. The exercises the therapists had me perform actually felt good and seemed to speed my recovery. I’m confident that without IPT I would still be using the crutches.
The staff at IPT should be commended for such a fine job. I immediately felt comfortable around them & had a sense they truly wanted their patient to get healthy. I would recommend IPT to anyone seeking professional and caring Physical Therapy. Thanks to them I have returned to work much sooner. Great job!”
“Having lived a fairly healthy life, I had never been subjected to physical therapy as an organized event. I found that at the Institute of Physical Therapy, following a total knee replacement, that organized therapy is measure in degrees. 135 degrees to be exact. As I began my therapeutic ordeal, my degrees were rather limited. Thanks to the very professional and dedicated staff at the institute, my progress was quick and my recovery faster than I ever expected.
I found Keith to be a taskmaster, but willing to share his thoughts and knowledge readily. His “degree” of professionalism was very high. My favorite employee, Estelle, is a natural in the business. Her forte is humor, compassion (although she keeps it well disguised) and, of course professionalism. Larry runs a very good ship and his therapists are free to develop programs for their patients. The office staff is great when it comes to flexibility of scheduling and working with people to get them in at the patient’s convenience, not the convenience of the Institute.
If therapy is measured in degrees, then the Institute has the highest degree of professionalism, compassion and duty of care. The success that I achieved at the Institute is a reflection of their motivation, caring and attention to detail. I thank all of the employees for their hard work, sense of humor and dedication to the recovery of their patients. When it is time for the next knee to be replaced, I will place myself in the very capable hands of the Institute of Physical Therapy.”
