Very helpful, they gradually increased my exercises to accomplish my goal of having no pain and greater strength. It was a much better experience than I anticipated, this was my first experience with physical therapy.
It was really good, they help me recover faster then I thought. Definite 10/10. * Update: This patient recently set a school record in 400 m in track in 2016
I was really pleased with the service at AthletePlus. The staff is professional and helpful. I felt comfortable asking any questions about the therapy and anything related to my injury. I felt at ease getting advice on how to adapt the routines so I could do them at home. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone.
I feel 100% better than when I arrived. Great Staff , Good program , Thanks for getting me back on track.
I was a good experience at learning new abilities. It made me a lot stronger and I fell like it made a better athlete. In basketball a lot. I thought I was a lot of help for me.
Excellent therapist with great skills and very knowledgeable in the field. I would highly recommend him for therapy to patients of any age. I am now playing golf again without back pain.
Professional staff who are concerned about their patients. Also best program ever.
Fantastic. I came in with back pain and what I would have thought was major back instability. I think my results have been more than I could have ever imagined. My back pain is usually a zero now and I am not afraid to get back to the things that I want to do. The staff is great. Every person gives you what you need, they can all answer any questions you may have. Would it be weird to say I am going to miss this place!
My experience at AthletePlus was very helpful in relieving my pain by increasing my strength and range of motion. Prior to receiving treatment, because of the pain, I was unable to sleep through the night. Now, I am able to resume normal sleep habits along with all other daily activities.
It was amazing that I walked in with such pain and weakness that I thought I was going to be on disability and the next step was a wheelchair. After 18 weeks of work with the trainers, I feel that I have a new expectation that I can do anything.
