What Makes Our Job Worthwhile

We are blessed to be a part of something that makes a huge impact in the lives of other people every day. Knowing that you were able to help someone get their life back is the best feeling a physical therapist can ever have. Though it’s a frequent occurrence in our practice, it never gets old. It’s fulfilling… the true meaning of what physical therapy is all about.

I am so happy for Melanie E., her mom Laurie and their entire family. Melanie has been struggling with dizziness over the past 6 months. We are fortunate to have met this young lady, for throughout the past 3 months in therapy, she has shown us a great example of how dedication, persistence, and a positive frame of mind goes a long way in overcoming adversity. Thank you, Melanie!

 

“Before I started physical therapy for my vertigo, just getting through a normal day was extremely hard. Now I am able to do many things I never could have done before. I can now go on rides at the fair, run, go for long walks, move my head quickly, and so much more. For the first time in the long six months I’ve had vestibular migraines, I finally feel normal. I’m not scared to go somewhere or just live my life in general. I’m so extremely glad I did vestibular rehab here at Orthopedic and Balance Therapy Specialists because I can finally get my life back.”

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!
