What People Are Saying
Thank you for encouraging my patience and progress during my healing process.
Prior to therapy, performing minor tasks such as typing were painful. After three months of therapy, I can type, perform household chores and play clarinet with my soft brace on, and I am pain-free for those tasks.
The therapy and therapist were very effective.
Injured my thumb pretty badly, but through constant therapy I was able to get my thumb back to optimal strength and am basically back to normal.
Thank you for all your help and knowledge during my difficult time of recovery.
My therapist was amazing, kind, caring and compassionate. She was very knowledgable about my injury and was supportive and patient during treatment.
