GETTING BETTER

Typical Treatments

Kristy G.

When I was in a car accident, Katie was thorough and compassionate in the treatment of my injuries. She led my recovery at the pace I needed and was patient with the process. I am so grateful to have had her as my provider and I highly recommend her to anyone in need of physical therapy!

Barbara M.

I couldn't lift my arm and needed physical therapy. Katie came to my rescue!  She explained what was happening with my body and showed me exercises to begin recovering. She used her hands to relieve my pain. Katie went out of her way to find solutions to my individual needs and was ALWAYS so caring and encouraging!

Stephanie C.

After delivering my baby I experienced excruciating low back pain and couldn't bend and care for my baby. Katie straightened out my pelvic alignment and freed up the muscles that were preventing movement. I now understand HOW to move to protect my spine and can exercise again and am returning to running!
