"As I have passed my sixtieth year, I have had a number of occasions that necessitated physical therapy, so I can honestly claim to have quite a bit of experience in this area. Chris was recommended to me by my chiropractor for my plantar fasciitis which had gone on for nearly a year before I started treatment. Once Chris started working on me, I began to feel much better – his exercises really helped greatly, his hands-on manipulation moved me into a hopeful place as I had begun to think of this as a chronic condition which seriously affected my ability to exercise. He then started working on my neck which had been injured over 15 years ago in a car accident and I have gotten more mobility and really helpful exercises. I cannot recommend him more highly. Chris is a dedicated, caring, immensely talented PT".
“I just wanted to thank you for helping Bryan get back into racing shape. Yesterday he qualified for the Div. II State meet in the 200 (23.3), the 100 (11.2), and he is the fastest leg in the 4×100 relay, who shattered a 41 year old school record with a time of 43.7 and they are ranked 1st in the state overall. Thanks again!”
“People give gifts at Christmas time, but you give the gift of helping people all the time. You gave me the gift of walking without hurting. Thanks again!”
