I wish to extend my thanks to my therapists for their efforts in my rehabilitation on balance and strengthening. The improvements that I have experienced over the past months that I could not do that I can do now are listed below: • Walk down a dimly lit hallway without fear of falling. • Walk into and out of the shower and high-sided whirlpool without slipping. • Walk without the aid of a walker. • Able to ascend /descend stairs holding 1 handrail – sometimes without holding the handrail. • Able to lift fairly heavy objects over my head and walk with them. • Able to get out of the house and stay on my feet for extended periods of time.

I came in with pain in my legs, knee and foot. I had a hard time moving up and down stocking shelves at work. Now I am able to move more with very little pain. My legs and knees feel much better. I can bend them without my knee giving out. I love the people who work here and how they made me feel like a new person without surgery.

Physical therapy has significantly improved my left arm and hand weakness as well as my neck stiffness and discomfort. As a professional harpist, my condition had become very stressful and difficult during my performances. Through my therapist’s explanations, I now understand my condition and how to prevent future problems. It is wonderful to be able to do such activities as driving, cooking and playing the harp. Thank you, OBTS!

I am happy with everything Orthopedic & Balance Therapy Specialists has done for me. My vertigo attack was very scary, but in just 3 sessions with my therapist, he has given me my confidence back to feel I wasn’t helpless. I was able to go back to my normal activities without a fear of falling down. I thank this clinic so much for their knowledge of balance.

My therapist is wonderful! His hands are so powerful and a God send. My shoulder and neck have never felt so good! I have not walked without pain in my hip for so long I forgot how good it felt. I will certainly recommend him and your whole establishment to all of my friends. I wish I had found this wonderful establishment sooner!

Before treatments I could not lie on my back on the floor to do yoga – now I can without pain. When I went grocery shopping before I would have to sit down because of back pain, now I don’t. Also I found standing in line or at the kitchen sink very hard to do (without pain) before my physical therapy treatments here. Everyone on staff is so pleasant and caring.

When I 1st started my therapy, I had a very hard time keeping my balance during assessment and therapy. After six visits I have noticed a marked difference in my balancing ability. One of the areas of vast improvement is driving for periods of more than 45 minutes. Prior to therapy, I would sometimes have to stop or arrive completely exhausted. Now I find that I can drive for the period of time without rest and arrive to my destination completely focused.

When I began treatment it was difficult (to) put on a “pullover” shirt. Now there is no pain at all. It was difficult to bend my arm and raise it above my head. I can move it freely and pain free now. I had difficulty sleeping through the night. Now I can get a good night’s sleep and wake up refreshed. Before I found it difficult/painful to turn the steering wheel of my car with parking. Now it is not a problem. I have been to other treatment centers – about 5, but here I feel I really received help immediately.

When I started my balance therapy, I was told my balance would be corrected. I had a lot of doubt. After about halfway thru the therapy, I felt a large improvement. I am now able to walk without swaying and feeling like I am going to trip myself. I have more self-confidence in standing in one place as well as walking. The staff is great and oh so patient”

Since taking physical therapy at Orthopedic & Balance Therapy Specialists my back pain has improved 95%. I can now do things that I haven’t done in 2 years. After being hit by a car while riding my bicycle I was in constant pain for almost 2 years, getting no sleep or exercise due to the physical pain. I am now back on my bike, riding a full 6 miles 2x a week and sleeping soundly through the night. This has been an awesome experience and I am forever grateful!

I was pretty unsteady when walking when I first came here. I was dizzy and falling often. The balance machine has reprogrammed me to use my muscles, weight shifts, eyes, and even my inner ear for better balance. I have not fallen since! This has been so valuable for me. Thanks OBTS!!!

Everyone that worked with me was helpful. I enjoyed watching the staff interact as they worked as they laughed and smiled making me feel that it was fun to exercise. My knee pain is less and I look forward to having the same results with my back.

I have read lots of reviews that say "the entire staff of ..." is great, and you know that it is BS.. .. Butt at OBTS that statement is true. The person answering the phone, appointment setting they work around my schedule. It is truly a team concept. Everyone that has work with/on me keeps me focus on getting healthy to play golf.... Even those employees that haven't work with/on me are upbeat, positive and encouraging both their patients and me..... follow up phone calls, positive, hand written notes of encouragement, reminding me to do my homework so I can play golf this year. Great Employees, Great Business!.

My wife and I have been coming here for a year. They have wonderful customer service and the treatments were great. I could say that since coming here for treatments, I am now able to walk properly and sleep well at nights. They help you in the best way possible. The people here are great and we definitely recommend it to everyone!

My first experience with OBTS was very positive. During the course of my 13 therapy sessions I worked with many different therapists and all of them were professional and competent. They were able to help me effectively control my pain without medication using their therapy program. Unfortunately, they could not get my physical condition back to the same ability as before. However, this is due to the fact that it was later determined by my doctors that I required surgery. I plan on returning to OBTS for my post-op physical therapy and have already scheduled my evaluation appointment. Scheduling seems to be a challenge sometimes but that's probably an indication of their patient's satisfaction and good reviews. Thank you OBTS!

I’ve had an incredible experience here at OBTS. In just two and half weeks I’ve seen and felt remarkable results. My hip mobility has improved by 30%. I credit the excellent physical therapists and the deep tissue laser therapy for my gains. I’ve gone from walking with a limp and pain everyday to walking normally and know that I’ll be back to running in the future. Every single person is warm and friendly here. Great place!
