Testimonials & Reviews

  • W. Myers

    Today, I have no pain and my arm is totally functional!
  • L. York

    Returning with confidence 12 years later for a bad shoulder/arm/hand injury, I was greeted by Larry, Ardith and the staff. The same professionals as the previous time. That was the best feeling. I knew they would lead me to the recovery I needed again.
  • L. Dean

    Thanks to the Institute of Physical Therapy my attitude has greatly improved and I have a much better outlook on the future.
  • P. Woelfel

    The staff was always aware of patient pain levels from surgery and therapy and adjusted therapy routines for a minimum of discomfort. Upon completing the therapy treatments it is amazing to look back and see the remarkable reduction of pain and the returning of strength to the affected body parts
  • T. Fox

    I cannot thank the staff at the Institute for their care and challenge to improve, enough. They were great.
