PATIENTS ARE SAYING

MY PAIN IS GONE, AND I CAN DO ALL THE THINGS I NEED AND LOVE TO DO!
I am still amazed at the progress of my injured shoulder. Finding out that my shoulder was unstable was very disconcerting and I was skeptical that I would see much improvement with physical therapy. I was wrong! I am back doing most of my activities without pain thanks to Orthosports!...

-Marcia S.

Before physical therapy, I suffered from back pain and sciatica. I came to Orthosports, and within weeks felt a great improvement. Sciatica pain is gone and I can walk and sleep better. I had to return to Orthosports again due to tendonitis in my knee. Went through 4 sessions and ...

-Dawn W.

Thank you so much for your help with my ACL repair. Coming to therapy was never a chore for me because everyone was friendly. The first few weeks after surgery was difficult, but you made me believe that I would get better. I tried out for cheerleading, and I would ...

-Macy C.

A great big thank you to each of you for your part in the treatment and improvement of my knee. I am so blessed. If and when there is a need in the future for PT you will be my choice....
